Madison Hotel set to close

This Is Wiltshire: Madison Hotel set to close Madison Hotel set to close

MADISON Hotel will close for business on June 20, cutting jobs and cancelling all scheduled events and reservations in the process.

An e-mail was sent out to parties with events booked in at the Oxford Road hotel yesterday, with scant details other than an apology for cancelling all bookings at the site.

A spokesman at Licensed Solutions, specialist management consultants, said more than 25 staff currently work at the hotel, who are likely to lose their jobs.

Staff were reportedly informed of the news on Monday.

A buyer is yet to be finalised with negotiations ongoing, but it is likely to be a developer, the spokesman said.

Helen Jackson, of Crystal Spirit, is one of the bookers to receive yesterday's e-mail.

She said: "I spoke with a girl I know up there and she said they had allegedly sold it to a developer.

"There's going to be some sort of development extension to the retail park."

More to follow.

Well that's more sensible than flats or housing in that corner.. More traffic though on an already busy roundabout. Can't understand why roundabouts in this town have to be made worse by such developments on top of them !!! Put them midships along a road or on old industrial sites.

Hopefully they can use the opportunity to do something with the roundabout junction to improve traffic flow with any development. At the moment the traffic backing up the road is a danger.
