Blackburn’s latest hotel has opened as Hotel 99 in the former Wheatsheaf pub on Mincing Lane in the Town Centre, under the Best Western brand.
Originally an 18th century coaching inn called The Wheatsheaf, the pub has a handsome brick façade with carvings that hint at its original name. Subsequently the inn was re-named The Stage Door after it became a popular venue for acts and audience members at nearby theatres but has remained empty since it closed in 2017. The new hotel brings a popular and iconic building in Blackburn’s town centre back into use and preserves its heritage for years to come.
The new hotel features 18 bedrooms and you can find out more here https://www.bwhotel99.co.uk/
