Altrincham hotel’s starring role in Coronation Street

By David Prior at

Scenes filmed in the Cresta Court Hotel in Altrincham featured in an episode of Coronation Street earlier this week.

The Church Street hotel hosted cast members including Lucy Fallon (Bethany Platt) and screen mum Tina O’Brien (Sarah Platt), with Mikey North (Gary Windass) and Ellie Leach (Faye Windass).

The crew and actors filmed in the venue’s Townfields restaurant and bedroom accommodation for two days in September, with the episode airing on Monday.

“We were thrilled that ITV Granada chose to use us for location filming,” said Paul Hindley, general manager of the Best Western-owned hotel.

“It created quite a stir in the local community and a real talking point for guests and conference delegates. Nothing quite beats bumping into your favourite Corrie star whilst attending a training course at the Cresta Court!

“All the cast and crew were a pleasure to have with us and we have had great feedback following this week’s episode featuring the Hotel. We look forward to welcoming them back again in the future.”
