UPDATE Travelodge Hotel (Room 101) Ribble Building Lord Street Southport (Thursday October 10th 2013)

Contractors have almost completed the new Travelodge Hotel on Lord Street, Southport.

The Grade II listed former Ribble Bus Station will be open for business in early November, and will boast a six-storey, 101-bedroom hotel & international restaurant complex.

The hotel will create 20-30 new jobs.

The dilapidated eyesore was empty for more than 10 years and was plagued by a string of failed proposals.
