Zetter Group to open first Manchester hotel

The company is the anchor operator at the grade II listed London Road Fire Station development, which is set to include restaurants, bars and events spaces.

It will be The Zetter Group’s first hotel outside London and fourth overall. The company announced last week that it will be closing its celebrated Grain Store restaurant in King’s Cross​ following the departure of chef Bruno Loubet.

London Road Fire Station first opened for the Manchester fire brigade in 1906 and has also housed a bank, coroner’s court, gas meter testing station and ambulance station.

The building has lain vacant since 2001 and was bought by developers Allied London in 2015.

The former laundry is to become the hotel’s breakfast room, while the old gas meter testing room will be transformed in to a restaurant and coffee shop or wine bar.

“Now we have detailed planning consent we can engage in detail with hospitality and leisure operators,” says Michael Ingall, Allied London chief executive.

The development is scheduled to open in summer 2019.
