Blackpool hotel to add 74 rooms

The Hampton By Hilton Hotel in Blackpool has secured planning permission to expand, including an upgrade to key facilities and the addition of 74 new bedrooms.

The project will be undertaken by Create Developments and sister company Create Construction, which completed the first phase of the development in 2018.

The hotel currently comprises of 130 bedrooms, a fitness room, business work zone, reception area and restaurant/bar

In addition to the new rooms, the planned extension will provide a larger and more efficient kitchen and breakfast area and new flexible meeting spaces, improving both its capacity and efficiency.

By providing these extra facilities in the area, the hotel will be able to give further support to the new Blackpool Conference Centre and anticipated Winter Gardens exhibition centre extension.

Gill Mathison, spokesperson for Create Group said: “The extension to our Blackpool Hampton by Hilton Hotel is a testament to the success of our team and the quality of the Hampton by Hilton brand. I am delighted that the improvements we are making to the hotel will entice more people to come and stay at the resort, which in-turn will provide much-needed support to other local businesses."

The year-long construction programme will begin in the first quarter of 2021.
