Create Developments has started construction on the £7m extension of the Hampton By Hilton Hotel in Blackpool.

The hotel, which has played an important role in supporting the regeneration of the South Shore, currently comprises of 130 bedrooms, a fitness room, a business work zone, reception area and restaurant/bar.

The extension will provide 74 additional bedrooms, a larger and more efficient kitchen & breakfast area, as well as flexible meeting & business spaces, which will all greatly increase the hotel’s capacity and efficiency.

The extension will help to satisfy the increasing demand from Hilton Honors guests, business visitors and tourists to the town and will also be able to support to the Blackpool Conference Centre and new Winter Gardens exhibition centre extension, which is due to host future Conservative Party forums.

Neil Holland, Create Developments Manager said: “The extended capacity and improved facilities at The Hampton By Hilton in Blackpool will help to support the growth and regeneration of the town in both its tourist and business trade, especially after the pandemic and we are so proud to be playing a part in the iconic town’s development and future success.”

Graham Dodd, Managing Director, Development, UK & Ireland, Hilton said: “After opening three years ago, it’s great to see that Hampton by Hilton Blackpool’s success is already prompting significant expansion.

“We are excited to develop our presence in one of the UK’s most popular tourist resorts and look forward to welcoming even more of Blackpool’s more than 18 million yearly visitors.”

Create Developments will be completing the extension project with their sister company, Create Construction, which will be providing the construction expertise.
