Professor Steven Broomhead, Warrington Borough Council’s interim Chief Executive, and The Mayor of Warrington, Cllr Steve Wright, joined the town’s leading political and business figures to help promote the hotel’s facilities and location with business travellers.
Gulliver’s Hotel cost £3.75 million to develop and could contribute more than £3 million a year to the local economy.
In a speech to guests Professor Broomhead said: “It was a brave and confident decision to invest £3.75 million into the 56-room hotel and Warrington - and it is confident decisions that will drive our economy. Congratulations to Gulliver’s.”
The Mayor of Warrington, Cllr Wright, said: “The hotel is great for the local economy and with the Omega project kicking off, businesses and developers will be looking for somewhere to stay. It’s great for access to the motorway and in a quiet, almost rural Cheshire, location.”
Julie Dalton, Managing Director of Gulliver's Theme Parks, says: “We were delighted that Professor Broomhead and The Mayor were able to attend and open the hotel to the business community. “Gulliver’s Hotel has been created and built with local suppliers – from the curtains to the art on the walls. We’ve used local artists, designers and people we employ. There is a real sense of ownership. It is just one of the reasons why we’re confident that business people will find the hotel a great place to stay and it will significantly contribute to the success of the town’s economy.”
During the event the North West’s business and enterprise community were given the chance to explore the hotel’s corporate facilities and sample its hospitality. With news that the nearby £1bn Omega project has restarted, Gulliver’s Hotel is aiming to provide accommodation to impress business visitors, incoming talent and potential investors in Warrington.
The 56-room Gulliver’s Hotel is positioned outside the theme park within a quiet parkland oasis. Its construction created more than 60 jobs and another 25 jobs since its completion. More than 140 British suppliers and contractors were used to create the new hotel - 90 within a 60-mile radius of Warrington.
It has excellent business facilities with an executive meeting room, free WiFi, free parking, vehicle CCTV, desk space in every room, air conditioning, bar, on-site restaurant, guests are free to order in takeaways, specially designed beds, and a competitive room rate that includes breakfast.
The hotel is located in Old Hall, less than three miles from junction eight and junction nine of the M62, and just over three miles from Omega on the former Burtonwood airbase site.
