A planning application to turn Teignmouth's former Bay Hotel into an 'aparthotel' has been submitted to Teignbridge District Council.

The aparthotel, or apartment hotel, would feature nine holiday apartments.

The Bay Hotel has been closed since 2017 and is situated at 15 Powderham Terrace, part of a Grade II-listed symmetrical terrace of 15 houses.

The terrace was first listed on 13 October 1972. It is described as "a fine example of the more richly detailed Italianate style adopted for mid 19th-century terraces, contrasting with the more austere and earlier terraces in Den Crescent" in the list entry.

15 Powderham Terrace was built in 1869 by the Earl of Devon.

The application is seeking approval to refurbish and remodel the existing building, with nine holiday apartments. The ground, first and third floors would each have a one-bed and a three-bed apartment, and the second and fourth floors and basement would each have a one-bed apartment.

The exterior refurbishments would reportedly be "minimal", and include the removal of "21st century additions such as air conditioning condenser units and basement extensions to the north-west of the property."

Inside, new internal walls would go up where required for the aparthotel and existing internal walls would be retained "where possible".

The plans are currently awaiting a decision from the district council.
