A new hotel could be built across the road from the site of Everton’s proposed new stadium, if Liverpool Council’s planners approve.

‘Bramley Hotel’ will be located on Regent Road in Bramley-Moore Dock, aiming to accommodate football fans and visitors to the North Docks area of Liverpool.

Final designs for the new stadium were unveiled in December, with a detailed planning application sent to the council.

‘Bramley Hotel’ will be a key facility for those attending the 52,000-seater Bramley-Moore Dock stadium

The planning statement described Bramley-Moore Dock and Ten Streets as an “underutilised area”, adding: “This site is well-located within the Northern Docks, close to sustainable access options and existing and proposed commercial and leisure opportunities.

Containing 167 rooms, ‘Bramley Hotel’ is sure to be a popular destination for football fans.

It will be run by worldwide chain Accor, branded as an ‘Ibis Styles’ hotel, positioned just metres from the new stadium.

Plans have been submitted to the council, with the building set to be nine storeys high and delivered by developer Crossfield.

The design and access statement submitted alongside the application said the buildings on site currently “appear in relatively poor condition”

The proposals would see the current buildings on site demolished, with the hotel and 87-space multi-storey car park built in its place.

It’s expected to go before Liverpool Council’s planning committee later this year.
