Peel Holdings has gained planning consent for a £30m hotel at the Trafford Centre in Manchester.

The Manchester based company, which developed the Trafford Centre retail complex in the 1990s, is planning a 210-bedroom hotel at the site.

It will be 15 storeys high which, at 200 ft, will make it the tallest building at the Trafford Centre.

It is expected that the hotel will be 4–star or higher and will include a 500-seat conference facility, a 200-seat restaurant and bar, and a spa, gym and swimming pool facility for guests.

Peel said it is now in detailed discussions with contractors with a view to taking the development forward.
