Nick Yandle, Chief Executive of Gallagher Group, said: "We can now enter into serious negotiations with a number of operators who have already expressed interest in developing a hotel of this size in Maidstone.

It is clear that the site's proximity to the recently opened Kent Institute of Medicine and Surgery, make it a very attractive proposition for a hotel operator.

"The planning officers were particularly impressed with the quality of the proposed design and we look forward to delivering a hotel that supports Maidstone's business and visitor economy."
