The Lockleys Hotel major expansion is officially underway, with the old beer garden, bottleshop and front entrance saying sayonara.

The team have been busy renovating the space since the start of the year while ensuring trade runs as smooth as possible to everyone can still enjoy an after work frothy.

After lodging the plans last year, the redevelopments promise a splash of modernity with a contemporary design. The bistro will be completely transformed into a fresh new space, the beer garden will no longer feature the vibrant Coopers Session Ale wall (literally so sad) but will be the cool new space to enjoy a warm summer nights with mates, while the front entrance will receive a much needed face lift.

When the development is complete, it will present a fresh, high-quality design with varied finishes and materials. This avant-garde design will ensure the motel’s presence on Tapleys Hill Road will be pronounced.

The plans were submitted by MasterPlan SA on behalf of Lockleys Hotel and said “the development represents an expansion and modernisation of an existing land use that supports the sustainability of the Lockleys Hotel” and will “support employment and economic prosperity.”

The plans also included the construction a four-storey motel with more than 80 rooms.

“The land use of the development is tourist accommodation in the form of a motel, that will be run in conjunction with the existing accommodation options available at the adjacent Lockleys Hotel,” the plan states.

“The development provides for an expansion of the existing land use which includes twelve tourist accommodation rooms and utilises a separate area of the subject land.”

Though 40 of the existing parking spaces will be removed to accommodate the new structure, 29 will eventually be reinstated. In total patrons will have over 230 carparks available, that will serve both the Lockleys Hotel and the proposed motel development.

So if your in the need for a cracking pub feed, head down to the Lockleys and see how the renovations are going for yourself!
