LIVERPOOL hotel developer and operator Signature Living has revealed plans to acquire the city council’s Croxteth Hall and transform it into a spectacular hotel, wedding and events venue.
It is understood that the council is unable to afford the considerable upkeep and running costs of the mansion which was originally built in the 16th Century and was the ancestral home of the Molyneux family, the Earls of Sefton.
Initial plans include some themed rooms, as well as upmarket glamping sites when weather permits.
Signature Living founder Lawrence Kenwright said: “Signature Living has a great track record with taking grand, old, but unused buildings and turning them into profitable businesses the entire community can enjoy.
“We’ve delivered 30 James Street, the Shankly Hotel and the Exchange Hotel in Cardiff, and we know we’re the right company to take on Croxteth Hall.
“We’re invested in helping the Croxteth area thrive. We want to create a centre of excellence where members of the local community can train to work for Signature Living across our leisure portfolio.”
The plans are revealed in an exclusive interview with the Liverpool ECHO.
