Work starts on new £6 million Wrexham hotel

Published:  05 December, 2012

Contractors have started work on a new 83 bedroom Premier Inn hotel on one of the main gateways into Wrexham town centre.

Worthington Properties is building the four-storey hotel which is expected to complete mid 2013 with the hotel opening shortly after. Approximately 33 full and part time jobs will also be created.

The new hotel, in Mold Road, will help transform a current derelict site covering approximately two acres, and will aid the town’s physical regeneration while bringing a welcome economic boost to the area.

It will also be built to a high ‘green’ standard which has achieved the construction industry’s BREEAM rating assessment of ‘very good’.

Phil Wynn, county councillor for the Brynyffynnon ward of Wrexham County Borough Council, said: "The new hotel in the town centre is long overdue and will greatly enhance the visual appeal of a site which has been a Mold Road eyesore for far too long."

Russell Worthington, development director of Worthington Properties commented: “Premier Inn is a well established hotel chain offering quality accommodation across the country and we are delighted to work in partnership with them to deliver a new hotel in the town, which will also act as a catalyst for further regeneration.

“As a business we are carving out a well deserved reputation for delivering projects of this kind and have recently completed a £10.5 million Premier Inn in Preston and two Travelodge hotels worth £25 million in Manchester and Liverpool.”

Once completed the Wrexham Premier Inn will take the total number of hotel beds completed by Worthington Properties to over 600 in just three years.
