Why We Chose to Open in Preston

The Shankly Hotel in Preston is inspired by football’s one and only Bill Shankly. While Liverpool’s Shankly Hotel focuses on Shankly’s contribution to Liverpool Football Club, our upcoming hotel will shed light on the exciting first chapter of Bill’s football career, which began at Preston North End.

“The unprecedented success of The Shankly Hotel in Liverpool has given us the impetus and desire to take the concept national, and ultimately international. The Shankly in Liverpool has an occupancy rate of 96% and welcomed over 60,000 guests in 2017 alone. We are unrivalled for our guest experience. I can’t wait to bring that to Preston and seeing the city gain the natural benefits from this amazing visitor economy. He had some amazing footballing highlights and achievements at Preston North End, it was a special place for him and the family. I believe he would be proud to be part of such an amazing boost to the city.“

– Christopher William Shankly Carline (Grandson of Bill Shankly and Shankly Hotel Director)
