Stockport is to get two new hotels.
Travelodge have exchanged contracts with Orbit to open an 86 bedroom hotel in Regents House, the office building on Heaton Lane. The hotel will include a Bar Café and is situated close to Stockport train station and the new £47 million Redrock leisure development and the existing Merseyway Shopping Centre.
Along with Sale, it’s the first of nine new hotels Travelodge are looking to open in Greater Manchester. The new Stockport Travelodge should open in late 2016.
The Council has starting work building a new hotel next to Stockport Station on the Stockport Exchange complex.
A new 115-bed Holiday Inn Express® will be opened at Stockport Exchange after Muse Developments and Stockport Council completed agreements with InterContinental Hotels Group (IHG).
Due to open in 2017, Holiday Inn Express® Stockport forms a key part of the second phase of the mixed-use Stockport Exchange development which is currently under construction, creating a new gateway for Stockport town centre.
The hotel’s contemporary design will reflect the town’s rich history, featuring vertical fins which reference the town’s Grade II Listed Victorian covered market hall nearby. Amenities will include a bar, restaurant, Wi-Fi and meeting facilities.
As well as the hotel, the second phase of work will deliver a new 50,000 sq ft, five-storey office building and pedestrianised public space, which will create an attractive gateway from the train station into the town.
