There is certainly no shortage of new hotels in Liverpool - about to open, still under construction or with plans still on the drawing board.

Urbanista Hotel is a new hotel opening in Bold Street in the heart of Liverpool’s Ropewalks area. It will undergo a phased launch, with the first phase taking place towards the end of this summer.

Urbanista Hotel will have 22 contemporary designed bedrooms - with 11 double rooms, five quad rooms, four suites and two premier suites each with a private courtyard.

Urbanista Hotel will be located above the former ‘Love Thy Neighbour’, a local restaurant on Bold Street which has recently closed.

Urbanista Hotel will be operating ‘partner packages’ allowing guests exclusive offers at a selection of Liverpool restaurants and bars, as well as packages with taxi companies and local car parks.

Plans have been submitted for a new hotel in the Liverpool’s Paddington Village regeneration scheme.

If the project goes ahead the hotel will be a 221-bedroom Novotel. It will include meeting and co-working spaces and a gym along with a restaurant, bar and roof terrace.

The thirteen-storey hotel will be located opposite the New Royal Hospital and the university campus. It will be operated by Legacy Hotels & Resorts.  The development would also include a new multi-storey car park.

Paddington Village will also be home to the £35million northern headquarters for the Royal College of Physicians, which is due to complete in 2020.

Blackpool Conference and Exhibition Centre will be a brand new, purpose-built conference and events centre adjoining the main Winter Gardens building in the resort.

Blackpool Conference and Exhibition Centre will be opening in early spring 2020 and it will be the first major building development at the Winter Gardens Blackpool complex since the construction of the Opera House in the 1930’s.

Blackpool Conference and Exhibition Centre will feature 2,400 sq-mt of flexible space split over two floors with accommodation for up to 2000 delegates. It will be one of the largest events venues in the north of England and it will be fully equipped with the very latest audio visual technology.

The main room at Blackpool Conference and Exhibition Centre will seat up to 1200 delegates with breakout space as well as exhibition space.

Blackpool Conference and Exhibition Centre is an integral part of a major investment drive in Blackpool which also includes a range of new hotels and an upgrading of its tram and mainline train links.

Site visits to Blackpool Conference and Exhibition Centre will be available from late summer 2019.

A new boutique hotel is heading for the centre of Newcastle–on-Tyne. The developers, High Street Hospitality, are planning to invest £2million at 19-21 Collingwood Street. The development would transform the current office accommodation into The Metropolitan House Hotel - a boutique hotel with 13 bedrooms, a brasserie and rooftop terrace.

The hotel would include 13 individually-themed bedrooms over four floors plus ‘The Boardwalk Brasserie’ - a 1920s themed restaurant.

The top floor is planned to become ‘The Terrace at Metropolitan House Hotel’, with a half retractable roof which would be heated in winter turning it into a year-round destination.

‘The Studios’, in the basement, would be an entertainment venue.

A planning application is currently with Newcastle City Council.

Plans have been submitted to convert and extend the Grade II-listed former Magistrates’ Court in Greenwich in London to create a new £70million hotel. The scheme will also see two empty adjacent school buildings converted to create the 293-bedroom hotel.

The new hotel will vary from three to seven storeys with several new warehouse-style buildings providing the bulk of the hotel rooms.

The ground floor of the former Magistrates’ Court and one of the school buildings will include front of house hotel services, the bar, restaurant and café. The hotel will also feature a gym, pool, conference and events facilities plus plenty of parking spaces.

The Magistrates’ Court closed in 2016. It is located close to Deptford Bridge DLR station.
