It’s rare that hotel opportunities arise in Grade II landmark city centre buildings, even less so when they are former ‘Grand Railway Hotels’ themselves.
North Western Hall will offer direct access onto Liverpool Lime Street Station concourse and is one of the founding family of ‘grand railway hotels’, which also included The Midland in Manchester, St Pancras in London and The Balmoral in Edinburgh.
Now in the ownership of North West family developer The Marcus Worthington Group, it is anticipated, subject to planning, the site will be returned to its former status as a landmark hotel by mid-2019.
The central location of the North Western Hall is within ten to fifteen minutes’ walk from all Liverpool’s major attractions including Albert Dock, Liverpool One, the Tate Gallery, the Beatles Story, Echo Arena, the Cavern Quarter and Liverpool Cruise Terminal.
Having Liverpool Lime Street Station literally on the doorstep is another obvious benefit for operators with more than 20million passengers.
The plans for accommodation are suitable for all types of operators, with room numbers ranging from 181 for full service up to 231 for limited service or budget providers.
