Broadfield Park Hotel taken over by Brilliant Hospitality Management

Date published: 31 July 2021

The Broadfield Park Hotel in Rochdale centre is under new management.

The hotel, named after the Grade-II listed park it stands in, has reopened after closing its doors in 2020, despite undergoing a major revamp back in 2013.

Earlier this year, plans were lodged by the Fairhome Group to turn the three-storey building into 31 new apartments for ‘affordable rent.’

Now the hotel’s new owner – Brilliant Hospitality Management – is investing £1million into renovating the building and restoring its former glory, bringing it back into use for weddings, celebrations, parties and corporate events.

The venue also holds a civil ceremony licence so couples can have their whole day in the beautiful grounds of the hotel.

Anoob Saban, managing director of Brilliant Hospitality Management, said: “I am delighted to be restoring this hotel; it has such amazing potential and we want to give the people of Rochdale a hotel they can be proud of.

“Myself and the team are really looking forward to the easing of Covid-19 restrictions and hosting grand events at the hotel.”

Dating back to the early 20th century, the Broadfield Park Hotel was originally built on the site of the old grammar school, as a nurses’ hall of residence.

Built as a memorial to Queen Victoria, the hotel has beautiful original details – which will be preserved – in honour of the monarch, including a statue of the queen that overlooks the entrance of the hotel and a beautiful stained-glass window.

Brilliant Hospitality Management has also recently completed the refurbishment of the Trafford Hall Hotel in Manchester and hopes to complete the refurbishment of Broadfield Park to the same standards by the end of the summer.
