Proposals to convert a former shopping centre in Cardiff into a 166-bed hotel complete with food and drink outlets have been approved by the city council.

Developer Mahavir Properties is behind the scheme at 10 to 25 Queens Street, which was previously known as the Queens West Shopping Centre.

The project involves the part-reconfiguration and alteration of the existing grade II-listed building, including the creation of two additional storeys and an external stairwell to provide hotel accommodation.

The development is earmarked for the capital’s main shopping street. The developer said a number of hotel operators were interested in the scheme, including the Hilton (adjacent to the site) and Bespoke Hotels.
