A former tribunal court in the city centre could be transformed into a boutique hotel.

Plans have been submitted to Glasgow City Council by property developer Henley Homes Group to turn Wellington House into a 98-bedroom hotel.

The B-listed court has been used as office space and a tribunal, and since it was first built in the late 1800s, it has maintained its historic external facade.

The developers hope to keep change to its outside to a minimum, and hope to install outdoor lighting to 'enhance its character'.

They say the hotel, which will be known as The Wellington, would be a combination of 'boutique hotels and serviced apartments'.

A statement submitted to Glasgow City planners explains: "The hotel will be developed by Henly’s Rogue City Hotels to provide a product that provides the best of both boutique hotels and serviced apartments.

"The feel of the Hotel will be contemporary, quality without excess, and clearly not too corporate. Anything that spells 'chain' goes against the brand ethos."

It adds: "The proposal is for a change of use of a vacant tribunal court and office building for hotel use.

"The building will remain largely physically intact and interventions and modifications will involve internal works to subdivide spaces, carve out a reception/lobby and entrance area and associated wet and dry works for bedrooms and en-suite bathrooms. External works are relatively minor.

"The application proposal does not include a food and drink offer and the access and servicing arrangements will be as existing. Service delivery will take place from the adjacent lane immediately to the south of the building. Cycle parking is provided within the basement garage area. Laundry, deliveries and emergency access can also be taken via this route."
