Grand job as £4.5m Leigh hotel renovation is making progress

Echo: Grand job as £4.5m hotel renovation is making progress Grand job as £4.5m hotel renovation is making progress

WORK to revamp and reopen the historic Grand Hotel is progressing quickly.

A large skip and hoarding have appeared outside the building in Leigh Broadway owned by nightclub boss and former Towie TV star Mick Norcross.

The 18-month, £4.5million renovation started last month after Mr Norcross, 51, took over the building in 2011 and put forward proposals for a boutique hotel.

Tantalising pictures showing original features being uncovered have been posted from the hotel’s official Twitter profile @GrandHotelLeigh – showing the listed building’s huge rooms and views from the top floors.

A tweet sent to its 4,000 followers said: “Good morning site hoarding continuing & internal soft strip 50% complete, #thegrandplan is taking shape.”

Other work includes restoration of the brick and stonework around the site, which dates back to the 1890s.

Engineers from BT have also visited the hotel to start installing communications.

Alongside the updates on the work, pictures from inside the building have also been tweeted to the world.

The latest posts include a view inside the room which will be used as a private dining area for customers.

A message tweeted with the picture read: “Natural light in the private dining room, this will be special!!!”

Another image showed previously boarded up doors in the breakfast room reopened.

The brief glimpses inside have proven popular with residents of Leigh, with some commenting on the view of the work from the street.

Donna Bailey-Pillow wrote: “We go past every day and see the progress in just a few weeks.

I cannot wait until it’s open – good luck.”

Plans for the redevelopment will see the Grand become a boutique hotel with 20 bedrooms, a piano lounge, bar, restaurant, tea rooms and a luxury spa.

The design will match the building’s original Victorian era features.

The hotel is due to open in the summer of 2015.

Couldn't help noticing the Japanese Knotweed is still there when I drove pass yesterday. Not a good idea to build a new car park on top of it which it looks like their doing.

^^^^Nelly99, isn't it actually drove "past" ??
"passed" would be used in the context of, I "passed" my exam, so maybe before you start picking on others spelling and quoting,
"God I hate posts like this. Not just grammatically rubbish but so negative" maybe you should in fact stop being so negative about other peoples spelling!! no doubt there is something in my comment that's not grammatically correct, but hey ho!, who cares?

Thank you Nelly99 for your support.

Yes Maundy 4, spelling is not my forte. However, horticulture is. If you know anything about Japanese Knotweed or as I call it normally Fallopia Japonica, you might know that it is the the most invasive plant in the entire UK and it is growing on the site. It does not seem to have been dealt with before new building has instructed. Jus saying.

Little John, I think you'll find that it was in fact me that was supporting you not Nelly99 !!!! Nelly99 is the one that was picking you up on your spelling, whereas I told Nelly99 that they were in fact wrong in their correction.
Like you I agree about the Knotweed, but I also hate to see people putting others down for their spelling and grammar, especially when they are in fact wrong themselves, not everyone can pick up the English language as in past, passed, pass and when to use the correct one, but there's no need for Nelly99 to make anyone feel inferior by making a public comment putting them down, so I felt they should have been corrected themselves, I didn't find your comment about the knotweed at all negative as Nelly99 did by the way, just informative that's all :-)

Oh dear so much bickering!! I have lived in Leigh now for 18 years and cannot wait for The Grand to be refurbished. It has been such an eyesore these past years, and will be a pleasure to walk into Leigh passed a vibrant and beautiful refurbished building. I also hope they incorporate the greek statue into the plans. Smiles and thumbs up from a Leigh resident.

I am a bit disappointed that the pictures alleged to have been twitted are not published here by The Echo along with Mr Norcross' s over White toothed unshaven visage. We normally get treated to his grizzly phizzog about once a month and his publicity machine appears to be slipping badly for once.

He used to be in TOWIE you know.....

Good morning, I hear the Grand Hotel had a break in, such a shame that people cannot get on with doing something good to this building without somebody trying to do something bad to it.

I presume the culprits thought they could not be seen behind the wooden fencing that has been put round the building. I think time for security cameras or somebody on site now renovation getting underway.

I look forward to seeing the Grand Hotel looking great once again, perhaps even better.
