The developer of the forthcoming Edinburgh Marina has confirmed it is in “advanced negotiations with a major international hotel partner” for a luxury property within the £500 million waterside complex.

Located around 2.5 miles north west of the city centre in Edinburgh’s Granton district, the marina will feature 340 berths with 24/7 access, as well as residential, retail, leisure and business space.

The 187-room hotel will overlook the marina, and will feature 21 suites including a 1,000 square foot Presidential suite, as well as restaurants and bars, a health spa and fitness centre, and a conference and banqueting centre.

Commenting on the news, the developer Kevin Fawcett said:

“I am delighted that there has been so much interest from leading international hoteliers in the new Edinburgh Marina Hotel. I hope to be in a position to confirm the identity of the hotelier in the very near future.”
