Hotel submits expansion plans


A planning application has been submitted to Cornwall Council proposing the expansion and enhancement of Hotel Polurrian in Mullion.

The proposal includes the creation of 15 new hotel bedrooms, a heated swimming pool with a high-quality retractable glass roof to accommodate year-round use, together with new wellbeing and spa facilities. All works are planned to follow carefully considered designs to remain in keeping with the hotel’s existing Edwardian architecture.

Andrew Long, owner of Hotel Polurrian, commented: “We want to build on Hotel Polurrian’s legacy as an asset to Mullion for more than a century, and make sure it continues to serve its community for many more decades.

“We understand that the hotel has a rich history and architectural features which are cherished by many in our local community. It was important for us to strike the right balance by improving our overall high-quality offering while staying true to the building’s heritage.”

If approved, the proposed works would generate up to 60 new jobs for the local area in all-year-round full-time equivalent positions.

In addition, Hotel Polurrian is proposing to refurbish its existing leisure club buildings into four new self-catering holiday let apartments. Car parking spaces would be increased from an existing 52 spaces to 80 spaces, with 11 electric vehicle charging points installed on site.

The hotel also plans to create a new fitness and relaxation suite, treatment rooms, and a new function room. All facilities, including the proposed 15m heated pool, would be open to the local community.
