Hotel and floating restaurant planned for Bristol's St Augustine's Reach development

The Manor Property Group plans to build a 125-bed luxury hotel and floating restaurant overlooking Bristol's St Augustine's Reach as part of a £24m development of the Bordeaux Quay area.

The developer said it was "in discussions" with Intercontinental Hotel Group-owned Hotel Indigo to launch a boutique hotel as part of a tourist attraction that would also include a "Bristol Eye" and a covered area for market stalls and events. Hotel management would be provided by Interstate Europe Hotels & Resorts.

CODA Architects founding director Ronnie Rennoldson said: "The ground floor would have a small reception area for the hotel widening out to a glass open space. In effect the hotel is on stilts floating above the public area. We've designed a roofed over public space, which itself creates an atmospheric route to the existing Lloyds amphitheatre, as well as an all-weather protection for outdoor markets and events. The 125-bedroom hotel has restaurants and a bar beneath and enjoys views of the harbour-side location from a rooftop restaurant."

The plans, which are the culmination of 18 months work, according to Manor Property Group development director Mark Bailey, have been circulated to city councillors and local interest groups for discussion.
