Former Post Office - The Shankly Hotel
Planning to convert what is locally known as the Old Post Office building into a 60 bedroom boutique hotel was approved in December 2016.
Plans include an additional two storeys, 170 cover restaurant, spa and wedding and function space.
This landmark listed building was sold to hotel group Signature Living who have a first class record for developing highly successful boutique and themed hotels. Their portfolio includes the historic 30 James Street Hotel and the football-themed Shankly Hotel both located in Liverpool.
The Shankly Preston will have a similar look and feel to that of its Liverpool counterpart, offering a world class hospitality experience, luxurious accommodation, bar, restaurant and events space. Unseen Shankly family memorabilia will feature alongside stories and tales of Bill, many relating to his career and time spent with Preston North End Football Club.
Works are currently underway to transform the building with an expected opening date in April 2019.
