Former council offices to be converted to hotel

Posted on by Rob Powell

COUNCIL offices in a Devon mansion are to be converted in to a new hotel.

Planning permission has been granted for Oldway Mansion in Paington to be turned in to a 57-bed four star hotel.

The imposing property was built in the 19th century and then later rebuilt in the style of the Palace of Versailles.

Having been used as part of the war effort, it was purchased by the local council after the the second world war and has since been used as a wedding venue and office space by the local authority.

But faced with rising costs of up keep, the council has now decided to back plans to turn the site into a hotel.

Further reporting from the BBC and the local Herald Express.
