    Oxford City Council has received plans from a four-star hotel to expand its offering by 48 bedrooms.

    The Oxford Spires Four Pillars is currently a 174-bedroom property but a proposal has been launched by the hotel’s owners to build an additional 18-room block at the rear and a 30-room block at the front.

    Also included in the plans is a project to expand the hotel restaurant and bar into the current car park, which isn’t being used by guests at the moment. The council is aiming to make a decision in late March.

    The plans, the biggest since the hotel was built in 1999, come as a £5.5 million, 83-bedroom Travelodge opened at the bottom of Abingdon Road last month.

    According to the Oxford Mail, the hotel said that the plans were not in response to the new budget chain’s arrival.
