New aparthotel set to open


Cornwall’s “first coastal aparthotel” will open its doors this autumn.

SeaSpace, on the site of the former Sands Resort Hotel in Porth, features 56 self-catering spaces with studios and two or three-bedroom apartments.

There will be a café and deli in the lobby area and a bar and restaurant.

Other facilities, which will also be open to the local community, include a reimagined 19-metre pool, refurbed gym and a five court padel tennis club, with two of the courts under a retractable roof, allowing year-round play.

SeaSpace CEO, Ben Harper, said: “SeaSpace will be stepping into new territory, moving away from the conventional hotel and self-catering accommodation models to put freedom and community first – without compromising on quality. We’re enjoying breathing new life into the space and look forward to creating a place where everyone feels like they belong.”

Bookings are now open for stays from October.
