After speculation earlier this year, plans have been submitted to replace the Thames Riviera Hotel with 29 apartments.

The plans, submitted to the Royal Borough on Thursday, November 17, propose a change of use and extension of the main hotel to create 15 apartments.

The existing bedroom annex block would be demolished and replaced with 11 apartments, and there would be an extension to the Guardhouse building for three apartments.

There would be a total of 33 parking spaces.

The Advertiser first reported that the hotel could be turned into flats at the beginning of September.

Bob Dulson, chairman of Maidenhead Civic Society, said: “I think it would be a serious loss for Maidenhead. The Thames and Riverside are the main attractions for the majority of visitors to the town. We cannot afford to lose such valuable facilities.”

A decision is expected to be made by Wednesday, February 15.

The reference number for the application is 16/03297.
