The hotel will house 165 upscale rooms, a branded destination restaurant and bar and a 1000 sqm pillar-free ballroom designed to attract large-scale conferences and events to the city.

Founder of leaf HOSPITALITY, Richard Farrar, said: "We are delighted to be working with the Brayford team again, who I know will deliver a first class hotel for Hull.  There’s a real buzz about Hull and a shortage of premium hotels in the city centre but the market is robust and continuing to develop. Now more than ever, the spotlight is on the city to accommodate a rise in business visits and a steady growth in leisure tourism anticipated as a result of Hull’s City of Culture status next year and we’re confident of its long-term sustainability as a vibrant leisure and business destination."
