Plans have been approved to merge two St Anne’s hotels. The Lindum and The Carlton, which sit side-by-side on the Promenade, will combine to form one, single upgraded 99-bedroom venue. Both hotels will be extensively remodelled and refurbished to include a family-friendly restaurant with 250 covers. A large outdoor seating terrace will maximise the excellent front-line location, overlooking St Anne’s Pier and the Ribble Estuary beyond. Additional bedrooms will include premium sea view rooms, accessible accommodation and dog-friendly suites.
Once complete, the remodelled venue will operate under the owner’s award-winning Eat, Drink, Sleep and Explore concept, and will offer high-quality year-round informal dining, drinks and serviced accommodation. It will create around 60 full time jobs.
Chris Moor, operations manager for The Inn Collection Group, said: ‘We are delighted plans have been given the go ahead and that work can now begin to give this site a vibrant new lease of life. The project will create a relaxed beachside venue befitting of its location on one of Britain’s most popular traditional seaside resorts. The Inn Collection Group specialise in rejuvenating aspirational sites like this while being careful to retain the individual character and appeal that makes our venues so distinctive.’
He added, ‘The redevelopment is a major investment by The Inn Collection Group which will revamp and refresh not only the site itself but which will contribute towards the wider economy of Lytham St Anne’s with valuable increased visitor spend, inter trading and employment opportunities as well as creating a vibrant new facility for the community to enjoy.’
The Inn Collection Group purchased The Lindum as its debut Lancashire site in 2020 followed by the adjoining building, The Carlton, in 2021. The group has 30 further pubs with rooms across the northeast of England, Yorkshire, Cumbria and North Wales.
