The north west’s exciting new boutique hotel, The Spinning Block at Holmes Mill in Clitheroe, is due to open this month.
The 38-bedroom hotel, along with the Bistro, Bar and Grill – which is taking bookings from Saturday November 4 – forms the latest phase in the £10 million redevelopment of what was a largely derelict textile mill.
In keeping with the rest of the mill, the hotel will be stylish and imaginatively designed while remaining sympathetic to the building’s heritage. James’ Places interiors guru Christine Lee explained: “The look is what we call ‘opulent industrial’. It is art nouveau with a feminine, indulgent look featuring beautiful, flowing lines.”
The bedrooms continue the pared back, urban tone reflecting the rest of Holmes Mill, with a luxurious, light and airy atmosphere. The Bar, Bistro and Grill is similarly styled, with art nouveau features and authentic textures giving a nod to the building’s roots.
Operations manager Andrew Bailey said: “Holmes Mill is already proving to be a very popular wedding venue and the hotel means families and couples can base everything for their big day around the site.
“We also expect the hotel to appeal to those attending an event at the mill, or in central Clitheroe, who wish to stay over. In addition, corporate customers will find the hotel a useful addition to our multi-use function room,” he added.
