The chain that would run a proposed hotel opposite Watford Junction has been revealed.

Proposed plans were submitted by applicant Tellon Capital last month to demolish Cassiobury House on Station Road.

If the plans were to be given the green light then the six-storey building would be removed and replaced with 43,000 sq ft of office space and 168-bed hotel with a restaurant and car parking spaces.

But in Tellon Capital's sustainability report it revealed that Premier Inn would be the chain running the hotel. The report can be found in Watford Borough's Councils planning portal.

The report read: "Once finished the site will consist of a Premier Inn Hotel to house 168 bedrooms along with a restaurant and associated hotel services."

If the plans were granted permission, this would be be the fourth Premier Inn hotel in and around Watford. The other three are located on Water Lane, Ascot Road and St Alban's Road in Garston.

Concerns have already been addressed about the submitted plans by campaign group Cassiobury House Action Group.

The group launched a petition in an effort to the stop the plans. It has now closed with 255 signatures.

Liberal Democrat Councillors said earlier this month that they back the petition and Cllr Stephen Giles-Medhurst met with the group to talk about their concerns.

He said: "We have spoken to the developers privately and our greatest disappointment is not a single one of those concerns have been taken on board.

"The scheme for a hotel wouldn’t even be the same height levels to the properties on that road. It’s unacceptable."

But in response to these concerns a spokesperson for Tellon Capital said it has sought to "work constructively" with people living in the area and has made changes after feedback, including the provisions of additional landscaping along Westland Road and new detailing to the proposed design.
