The yacht inspired 85 bedroom luxury hotel adjacent to Admirals Quay, will continue to make the Ocean Village development a sought after destination for city-dwellers and visitors to Southampton.
The form of the building takes reference from its nautical setting, providing terraces around each level of the building.
The concrete frame hotel is built off of the existing pier to the marina and provides conference facilities, a spa complex featuring a swimming pool and gymnasium, a restaurant and rooftop bar showcasing spectacular views of the harbour.
"A great deal of work went into the planning and design of the building with HGP coordinating a variety of input from designers and operators well in advance of the program. The end product that has exceeded all reasonable expectations held at the start of the project. Finishing on time and on budget the hotel immediately became a landmark and something the local community are proud of. The Harbour Hotel operations team took the handover of the building and opened with a bang, smashing the price ceilings for Southampton in all areas. Within three months they had been awarded five-stars by the AA for the hotel product – we understand that this may have been the fastest award of this kind outside of London."
