A hotel under construction in Ealing was due to open in June before it was damaged by a blaze.

The roof of Hotel Ibis Styles was left severely damaged after a fire at the Uxbridge Road building on Wednesday (April 18).

London Fire Brigade (LFB) was called to the eight-storey hotel, under construction, at 11.30am before the fire was under control at 1.25pm.

According to the Hotel Ibis website, the 120-room building was due to open in June this year.

A statement from the hotel on its website said it will have a tennis court, golf facilities and public indoor parking.

Getwestlondon has approached Ibis for a comment on how the fire will affect the proposed opening in June.

When attempting to book dates in June, July and August online, Ibis's website says rooms are currently not available.

It took 72 firefighters and officers to deal with the blaze, which also affected part of the plant room.

Devastating images and footage shows the roof of the hotel severely damaged by the flames.
