A local developer has switched his plans to build a block of city centre apartments in Preston, Lancashire in favour of a new scheme to develop a nine-storey, 63-bedroom hotel instead.

The new hotel would be named the Caxton Hotel after printing pioneer William Caxton. The hotel would also include a restaurant and bar.

The Caxton Hotel would be located in Marsh Lane in Preston’s University and Engineering Development Quarter close to the city centre and a short walk from Preston station.

The Caxton Hotel scheme has yet to reach the planning stage so no anticipated opening date is currently available.
