UK: North Western Hall in Liverpool is set to be converted into a hotel

A hotel operator is being sought for grade II-listed North Western Hall in Liverpool, following the announcement of plans to convert the historical building back into a hotel.

Contractor and developer Worthington Properties has bought the building, which is situated close to Liverpool Lime Street Station. North Western Hall has been used as student accommodation since 1996. It was previously the North Western Hotel, within the family of grand historic railway hotels.

The Worthington Group is planning to complete renovations by mid-2019, subject to planning permission. The number of guestrooms in the converted hotel could range from 180 to 230, depending on the desires of the operator.

Jeremy Collins, director of leisure specialists Jenics, said: "The hotel market in Liverpool has developed significantly over the last three years, largely due to both the growing popularity of the city's tourist and leisure market and an improving commercial sector. The central location of the North Western Hall is close to Liverpool's major attractions including Albert Dock, Liverpool One, the Tate Gallery, the Beatles Story, Echo Arena, the Cavern Quarter, Liverpool Cruise Terminal and the CBD. Having Liverpool Lime Street Station literally on the doorstep is another obvious benefit for an hotel operator, with annual passenger traffic of more than 20 million people."
