The Oak Royal Golf Hotel located in Chorley has permanently closed after five years of business.
The hotel was situated on a country club golfing site which was launched by Charles Downes in 2007. It included 26 guest rooms, a restaurant, cafe, clubhouse, and fishing lakes.
A financial report published by the hotel said “the size of the investment needed to fund the recovery cannot be justified in looking at potential medium-term returns”.
There are now plans to convert the hotel into nine residential units.
A planning statement sent to Chorley Council said: “The options for other commercial uses has been seriously considered.
“Therefore, there is no requirement for persons to gather at a central location, potentially for overnight stays and this source of income was steadily declining for the hotel.”
It added: “Regretfully, the applicant has decided that there is no alternative but to cease trading and seek a suitable alternative use and it is considered that the property readily lends itself to providing high quality residential accommodation.”
