There will be 82 bedrooms and a Cookhouse and Pub, and the development will create 75 new jobs.

Staff have already been out and about in town, holding a number of fund-raising events in aid of the business’ chosen charity, Great Ormond Street Hospital.

Work began on the hotel last April after a controversial planning process.
