Planning Approved for North Western Halls Hotel Conversion

August 29, 2018

We have received approval and listed building consent for the conversion of Lime Street’s North Western Hall, back into a hotel. After over 20 years in use as a student residence, the hotel will include 202 high quality bedrooms, including a number of suites.


The North Western Hotel opened in 1871 and was part of a great series of railway hotels which included The Midland in Manchester and St Pancras Midland in London. The Hotel was designed by Architect, Sir Alfred Waterhouse who also designed the Natural History Museum, Manchester Town Hall and Manchester's Refuge Assurance Building (Principal Hotel).


Russell Worthington, development director for Marcus Worthington Group, said: “It’s a building deserving of its original intended purpose as a railway hotel and it will benefit the city to have it back in public use for people to enjoy after many decades of being used privately."


He added: “The project will preserve historical features of the hotel and, in some instances, restore features that were hidden during the building’s last refurbishment.
