A four-star spa hotel that allegedly fired all of its staff and canceled all events is facing legal action.
The Stradey Park Hotel in Llanelli, Carmarthenshire, is said to be hosting up to 241 asylum seekers, made up of family groups, in its 77 rooms, under new plans put in place by the Home Office.
According to the Telegraph, ninety-five full-time and part-time employees are at risk of being made redundant from July 10, 2023 following the revelation of the plans.
He also claims that all events, including weddings at the venue, were canceled after that date.
Carmarthenshire County Council has confirmed it is now dragging the hotel owners and Home Office housing contractor to the High Court on Friday over allegations they changed the use of the installation without a building permit.

According to reports, all events, including on-site weddings, were also canceled after this date.
Carmarthenshire County Council Leader Darren Price said: ‘Carmarthenshire County Council has taken legal action against Gryphon Leisure Limited, Sterling Woodrow Limited, Clearsprings Ready Homes Limited, Robert Horwood and Gareth Street over the material change of use without planning permission of the Stradey Park Hotel, Llanelli.
“The case has been scheduled for hearing on July 7 in the High Court at the Royal Courts of Justice, Strand, London.
“The Council is unable to comment further at this time due to the need to respect the ongoing legal process.”
MP Dame Nia Griffith said in a previous statement: ‘This is extremely concerning, and I will continue to very strongly oppose any such proposal, noting the very strong opposition from the local population.’
It comes as the Home Office faces another legal challenge next week from two other councils over its plan to house migrants at two UK military bases.
West Lindsey District Council and Braintree District Council oppose plans to turn RAF Scampton in Lincolnshire and RAF Wethersfield in Essex into a migrant shelter.
A hearing will take place on July 12 and 13 at which the High Court will decide whether to conduct a full judicial review at a later date to determine whether the Home Office’s plans for the two bases are legal.
MailOnline has contacted Home Office and Stradey Park Hotel owners Sterling Woodrow for comment.
