ARTISTS’ impressions have been released of Wigan’s latest hotel.

Work is well underway on a new 90-room Holiday Inn Express at Martland Mill - the home of the Wigan Evening Post – and it is due to open next year.

The building was bought earlier this year by Steve McManaman and he is overseeing work on the new hotel.

This year has also seen the opening of the new Premier Inn hotel in the town’s former police station.

The hotel is one of six set to be opened across the country by Interstate Hotels & Resorts over the next two years.

Jim Abrahamson, chief executive officer of Interstate Hotels & Resorts, said: “With our established Interstate UK and Europe platforms, the Company continues to successfully grow in the region.

“Employing our global knowledge, vast resources and strong relationships with all major international brands, Interstate is well positioned to deliver dedicated, localized service and exceptional results to hotel owners and developers.”
