For many, many years, people have been concerned about what is happening to the iconic Royal York Hotel in Ryde.
OnTheWight understands that there’s an interesting development that could well be good news and is likely to be welcomed by many in Ryde.
After a long period of negotiation between the building’s owner and the Isle of Wight council planning department, new plans for the Art Deco-style Listed Building have been submitted to the council’s planning department.
The plans, once made public, will show a planning application for a thirty bed hotel and four flats on the site.

OnTheWight spoke to Joseph Kohn, Chair of the Ryde Business Association (RBA), who said, “We welcome the opportunity to support any development that will enhance Ryde. Anything that brings more people to Ryde to conduct business is a good thing.”
