Going that ‘Golden Mile’ to help deliver Blackpool’s first five-star hotel

TRP Consulting has been appointed to work on the creation of Blackpool’s first five-star hotel which will be built in the shadow of the resort’s iconic Tower.

Our team will be using all its experience to help deliver the striking new hotel on the famous Prom.

We will be working with builder Warden Construction and architects Frank Whittle Partnership (FWP) to deliver the new Sands Venue Resort Hotel on a site that sits in one of the busiest and most-visited areas of the UK’s favourite seaside destination.

The multi-million pound development is the latest in a series of major hotel contracts we have been appointed to. They include a new hotel that is currently under construction at Doncaster Racecourse – the Yorkshire home of the world’s oldest ‘classic’ horse race.

And we are also part of a multi-disciplinary team working on plans to redevelop and re-open the Grade II-listed Park Hotel in Preston – originally built as the sister hotel to Manchester’s famous Midland.

In Blackpool, The Sands Venue Resort 96-bedroom hotel and leisure development represents a significant move up-market for the Lancashire resort’s hotel sector and is due to open in summer 2019.

It will have large penthouse suites on the corner aspects of the building to provide spectacular views out over the Prom and the Irish Sea. The hotel is being created by development firm Coolsilk.

TRP Consulting Director Geoff Wilks said: “This is an exciting project for Blackpool and we’re looking forward to playing our part in what will be a real step-change for accommodation in the resort.

“It is another sign of the great regeneration work going on in Blackpool. The site is not without its challenges, being so near to the Tower and right on the Promenade, but once completed the development will be a fantastic addition to the famous Golden Mile.”
