Accommodation upgrade approved at the Grand Hotel

Accommodation at the historic Grand Hotel in Wyong is going to get a facelift.

Ten rooms on the ground floor will be upgraded for acoustic and fire separation between rooms and a new accessible room will be provided.

Renovations on the first floor will see a reduction in rooms from 26 to 23 and each will have its own ensuite.

Minor works on both levels will include a new entry lobby and stairs.

There will be no change to the 63-space car park or the motel.

Since the hotel was built in 1908 it has been renovated on several occasions with updated internal fit-out and additions, an expanded dining area, refurbished kitchen and servery, a gaming/smoking terrace and the disused bottle shop converted to motel units.

This latest development consent by Central Coast Council also includes the consolidation of the three lots into one over the 0.3ha site bounded by 126 Pacific Hwy, Robleys Lne and Hely St.
