Create Construction is well underway in completing the 130-room hotel on the site of the once derelict Palm Beach and Bourne hotels in Blackpool.

It will also boast a fitness centre and work-zone, complete with views of the Blackpool seafront.

The interior celebrates a cultural expression of Blackpool, predominantly translated through the use of feature wall coverings, utilising historic images and vintage postcards.

John Williams, director at SpaceInvader interior designers, said: “The approach to the interior design is very much inspired by the character of Blackpool as a unique destination.

“It embraces the theatrical and individuality at the heart of this bustling town.

“By celebrating what makes Blackpool truly special, we have given the interior both context and grounding.”

Gill Mathison, director of Create Group, said: “We are delighted with the achieved finish of the new sample rooms.

“It has been great to see the transformation of our hotel from drawings on a page, to what we hope will become one of Blackpool’s favourite hotels.

“It is fantastic to see both high profile advanced business and leisure bookings coming through already”.

Tim Groom, of Tim Groom Architects, added: “The Hampton-by-Hilton draws upon the historic characteristics of the Blackpool Crescent buildings and added modern twists, such as the very large windows looking out over the promenade.

“I am proud to be playing a small part in the on-going regeneration of the town.”
