Former Molineux Hotel, Wolverhampton

Project description

The restoration of the Molineux Hotel was about more than bricks and mortar.  The regeneration of the iconic building returned a symbol of pride to the city, showing that Wolverhampton is strong once again.

The Molineux Hotel was a favourite venue in Wolverhampton for more than 150 years. Its fine Georgian architecture and elegant rooms were popular across the region for functions and social occasions. Successful restoration of this historic building was finally completed, with new floodlights, in November 2008.

Business/operational model

Using money raised through the National Lottery, the Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF) sustains and transforms a wide range of heritage for present and future generations to take part in, learn from and enjoy.
