Southport’s Iconic Bliss Hotel Hits the Market CBRE instructed to sell prime waterfront hotel and basement car park with asset management and development potential

Waterfront Southport Properties Ltd has instructed the Operational Real Estate team at CBRE in Manchester to market Southport’s iconic Bliss Hotel.

The 4-star luxury boutique Bliss Hotel with underground car park sits in a prime position extending onto Southport’s waterfront next to the proposed state-of-the-art Marine Lakes Events Centre. The Events Centre, which forms the backbone of Sefton Council’s proposed £75M regeneration plan in conjunction with the Southport Town Deal, has been progressing positively with a planning determination expected shortly, whilst pre-construction ground investigations were undertaken in August.  ASM Global, a global arena operator with over 350 venues, has been recently appointed to operate the Events Centre.

The award-winning, purpose-built Bliss Hotel offers 131 bedrooms and penthouses, a lounge bar, restaurant, roof garden, gym, conferencing and events space, as well as secure underground car parking for 120 cars.  It has recently undergone a significant refurbishment programme to upgrade the F&B, public areas, meetings and events space with two floors of hotel bedrooms.  It has a strong trading performance with further asset management potential. The adjacent 50,000 sq ft Leisure Block is available by separate negotiation.

The wider, ambitious plans are set to transform the resort to include the new Events Centre, all weather visitor attractions, new business incubators and a spectacular light and laser show in the Marine Lake, with broader benefits to include some 515,000 expected annual visits and 60,000 additional hotel overnight stays.

Directly to the south of the hotel is Marine Parade, Southport Pier and a range of leisure attractions. The wider Waterfront is anchored by numerous restaurants, bars, amusements and leisure facilities.

Shaun Skidmore, Senior Director at CBRE Manchester said:

“We are delighted to work with Waterfront Southport Properties to market the recently upscaled luxury boutique hotel, which is in a prime position to the progressing events centre and exciting waterfront development.  The area is primed to attract a host of economic benefits thanks to this highly significant, multi-million pound regeneration scheme.”
