CENTRE Park’s former Premier Inn has become The Waterside Hotel as part of a takeover by Greene King.

It is one of five hotels the brewery has recently added to its growing estate of more than 130 ‘Greene King Inns’.

The neighbouring Waterside pub is also owned by Greene King.

Clair O’Neill, hotels controller at Greene King Inns, said: “We’re delighted to welcome five new hotels into the Greene King Inns estate, further establishing our presence in the north west region and providing even more locations to our existing portfolio of more than 130 inns across the UK.

“Our locations are designed to be at the heart of communities, providing a cosy destination where guests can enjoy a comfortable place to stay whilst exploring the surrounding areas or travelling for business.

“We look forward to welcoming both new and returning guests over the coming months, showcasing the new Greene King Inns offering.”

In addition to The Waterside in Centre Park, The Mount in Wigan, Royal Oak in Wirral, Lea Gate in Preston, and Holmfield Arms in Wakefield have also reopened as Greene King Inns.

The hotels, with luxury Hypnos brand beds, are centred around creating a ‘home away from home’ environment where guests can eat and drink at the pub and then stay the night.
