Lawrence Kenwright, chairman of hotel group Signature Living has vowed to give his hotel away for the evening and host a free bar in one of his restaurants if England win the World Cup.
Hotel boss Kenwright, who has a string of hotels in Liverpool, Cardiff, Preston and Belfast and is the co owner of the renowned football themed Shankly Hotel in Liverpool, took to his Twitter portal following Saturday’s 2-0 win over Sweden to offer his hotel as a prize should our national team go all the way to glory.
@LawKenwright said: “This is incredible ! If we actually go all the way and win the World Cup, I’ll throw a huge party. I’ll give away an entire hotel for free for a night and a free bar at Alma De Cuba for everyone ! You can all hold me to this!”
Signature Living is also currently working on three further football themed hotels which will open in 2018/2019, including the new £15m George Best Hotel in Belfast which is being built in tribute to the Manchester United and Northern Ireland player.
The Dixie Dean Hotel in Liverpool – in honour of the Everton legend Dixie Dean – is also being built. Developed in conjunction with the family of Dixie Dean, the £12m development sits across the road from the Shankly Hotel.
A second £12m Shankly Hotel is also currently being built in Preston in collaboration with the Shankly family and is due to open later this year.
