New build / Refurbishment / Extension




The project involves the redevelopment of Custom House in Cardiff to provide a 248-bed Premier Inn Hotel and restaurant.

Works include partial demolition of the Custom House, retention and restoration of the Custom House façade, demolition of the Former York Hotel, and associated access and ancillary works.

The listed façade of the Custom House is to be sensitively integrated with the proposed 20-storey new-build element of the project. The 20-storey building will largely consist of accommodation and ancillary service rooms.

The ground floor will provide front-of-house and reception facilities to service the proposed Premier Inn Hotel and will also be occupied by a 200 cover ‘Bar and Block Steakhouse and Bar’ restaurant.

The site is located in Cardiff city centre and is currently occupied by two derelict properties.
