He tweeted: “Work is underway. Not long to go now.
“It’s a great honour to be working with Chris and the Shankly family on another exciting project.”
The boutique hotel will have 65 rooms, a restaurant, bar and spa and Carline said they’ve already had requests for room bookings, weddings and conferences as far ahead as 2023.
