By Scunthorpe Telegraph | Posted: 18 Mar 2019

This is what guests at a new 30-bedroom apartment-hotel can expect when it opens in Scunthorpe later next month.

The former Scunthorpe Conservative Club has undergone a £400,000 refurbishment which will see the historic Doncaster Road building reopen as a hotel.

Located opposite The Baths Hall, the new venture will be called 42 Apart Hotel and is due to open in a little over a month.

The developer has confirmed the project is on schedule to open in mid-April and is nearly complete.

These are the first pictures of the finished rooms, which have a modern grey and yellow colour scheme and come in a variety of sizes, including suites.

The finalised building will have a café which will be open to the public and meeting facilities.

When the project was announced, the owners predicted it would create eight jobs including front of house staff, receptionists, hotel manager, café staff, housekeepers, kitchen staff and maintenance workers.

The former Conservative Club opened in 1935, and was a popular meeting places for Scunthorpe teenagers in the 1950s and 60s when it incorporated Campbell's dance hall.

A number of proposals have been suggested for the building since its closure.

At one point, local property developer Neil Dubnyckyj was planning a £500,000 renovation to turn the site into an upmarket steak restaurant and cabaret bar.
