This proposed national hotel and hospitality training academy sit on Oldham’s Civic Centre site adjacent the Queen Elizabeth Hall. The hotel will include a fine dine restaurant and a bar bistro and 120 bedrooms of various sizes. A leisure and fitness spa forms the transition between the upper block and the podium. A 200 seat lecture theatre and learning resource centre sits between the hotel with the function spaces within the existing adjacent Queen Elizabeth Hall, which will be fully refurbished and given a new extended entrance foyer.
The scheme creates a new public civic square that will rival the size and presence of Manchester’s Albert Square. The completed development will add a significant catalyst for Oldham’s ongoing regeneration.
