Planning permission for the hotel has now been granted.

Speaking to the Argus last November owner Kathy King said: “This will be the first dog boutique hotel in Wales – there will be about 12 suites.

“It will look nothing like a dog kennel – it will be designed very uniquely.

“When people bring their dogs, it will be a farmhouse kitchen so it will look like they are going into someone’s home.

“It will have a doggy lounge with a TV, in the afternoon they can watch films – Lady in the Tramp one day and 101 Dalmatians the next.”
