Work is due to start on a hotel on Rhyl seafront at the beginning of January as part of a £5.5m development, say officials.

A 70-bed Premier Inn and Brewers Fayre restaurant will be built on the site of the former Honey Club, West Parade.

Bosses say the businesses will create about 60 jobs.

The development is expected to be complete by 2016.
