Gary Neville and Ryan Giggs set to open second Manchester hotel

Gary Neville and Ryan Giggs are to open a second hotel in Manchester, in the former Stock Exchange building.

Planning permission has been granted by Manchester City Council to transform the Grade-II-listed building in Norfolk Street into a 35-bedroom boutique hotel with a restaurant, bar and a private members' club, which will incorporate lounges and a gym. There will also be a roof top bar and dining space.

Originally built in 1906, the Edwardian Baroque-style property is believed to have been acquired by the former Manchester United team mates two years ago for £1.5m.

There has been no confirmation as to when the hotel, which will not carry the Hotel Football brand, will open.

The hotel includes a rooftop football pitch, which combines as a function space, as well as the second Café Football site. Hotel Football follows on from the launch in December 2013 of the first Café Football, in Westfield Stratford, London.

GG Hospitality, the parent company of Hotel Football, Café Football, and the Stock Exchange development, is headed by managing director Stuart Procter. Neville and Giggs are investors and directors of the business.
