Harbour Hotel Southampton
Scheduled opening date: Approximately December 2016
Number of bedrooms: 85
The development of the new five-star Harbour Hotel in Southampton started in April this year and will mark the brand’s first property in the area when it opens in 18-24 months’ time.
The project will be Southampton’s first luxury five-star hotel and will be the sixth addition to the Harbour Hotels’ portfolio, headed up by managing director and former Hotel du Vin COO Mike Warren.
Once completed, the luxury boutique will consist of 85 bedrooms, a spa with a gym and swimming pool and the group’s signature Jetty restaurant, featuring a rooftop Champagne bar.
The hotel will also become Harbour Hotels’ flagship property.
Mike Warren, managing director of Harbour Hotels, said: “We are very confident that the hotel and its facilities will prove a fabulous addition to Southampton, boosting tourism and becoming a destination of choice for city-dwellers and visitors alike.”
The ground floor of the hotel is set to include a large open plan lounge, restaurant and bar, which will extend out onto a terrace at the end of the existing promontory. The hotel will also feature private moorings for its seafaring guests.
A London design house has already been tasked with creating a luxury, nautical-inspired interior concept, with yacht-chic decor and a coastal colour palette, something which is integral to the Harbour brand.
