Lindum transformed the derelict Grade II listed Robin Hood Hotel in Newark town centre into a 66-room Travelodge hotel.
The £6.6m project involved demolition of the crumbling building while retaining and restoring its original façade and construction of the new hotel along with three new ground floor retail units.
The Robin Hood Hotel, which was a well-known and prominent building in Newark, spent 20 years standing empty and decaying so Lindum was pleased to have been part of the team that’s brought it back into use.
It was not a straightforward construction project. We had to work around the fact the site was in a very tight town centre location and was right next to a major road.
We also had to work within the requirements of the heritage experts, who asked us to preserve and protect some of the original features. This meant using scaffolding to prop up the external wall while we demolished and rebuilt the rest of the structure.
The new hotel’s rooms feature modern en-suite bathrooms, power showers, 32 inch Freeview TV, complementary in-room tea and coffee making facilities and access to Wifi.
