Plans have been submitted to turn a former gentleman’s spa into a hotel.

Wolf Spa had operated from the building in Kilbourn Street, Nottingham, from 2017.

But the spa is now closed, and planning documents state the building is “vacant”.

The building had previously been home to the Reflections Health Club.

Documents show Mr B Tiwana has now submitted plans for a change of use for the spa.

Planning reports submitted to Nottingham City Council say the applicant is looking to turn the building into an ‘air hotel’.

“An air hotel in simple terms is a hotel, but unlike a traditional hotel it does not have permanent full-time staff present on site,” documents say.

“There are no cooking, catering or restaurant facilities within the building.

“This is not required as there is an abundance of cafes, bars and restaurants
within the immediate vicinity of the city centre.

“The hotel does however have service staff which provide day-to-day cleaning and laundry services along with the general maintenance and management for the hotel by a separate outside company provided by the applicant.”

Wolf Spa had undergone a makeover before its opening.

It offered services including massages, sauna rooms, waxing, manscaping, body hair trimming, body scrubs, body polishing and other therapies.

Planning documents say “a demand has been identified at this location” for a new air hotel.

“The hotel will provide accommodation to a range of visitors to the city centre such as parents which require accommodation when visiting family members such as students, business over-stay accommodation and tourist visitors to the city centre,” documents add.

“The hotel is advertised on-line via a web-site.

“The accommodation is paid for on-line and the customer is provided with an access code which is generated for the visitor only and allows access to the main entrance door, bedroom and courtyard amenity space.

“The access code is valid only for the period of stay. Visitors then leave the accommodation at the end of their stay period. Doors automatically unlock when exiting the building.”

The plans will now be considered by the council.
