Manchester’s Trafford Park hotel put up for auction

The iconic Trafford Park Hotel, built in 1902, has been put up for auction off a guide price of £750,000.

Disused since its closure in 2009, the grade II-listed building, on a 0.4-acre site, will be sold at Pugh’s next property auction on 14 July.

Ashley Hotels acquired the site last year but have placed the site back up for sale after an application to convert the building into a 121-bedroom hotel via a five-storey side extension was withdrawn earlier this year.

The site is considered suitable for development, subject to planning permission.

Edward Feather, an associate director and auctioneer at Pugh, said: “This is a truly amazing opportunity for an imaginative investor to purchase a unique landmark building that was central to Manchester’s industrial heritage as part of the world’s first industrial estate at Trafford Park.

“Although the hotel has been vacant for over a decade and is in need of a comprehensive refurbishment, it is an incredible building with exciting redevelopment potential.”
