    The Manor Property Group is planning on building 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 the 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.

    The site, owned by Bristol City Council has been earmarked for leisure use with the development of a “statement building”. While the planned restaurant space would be literally floating – accessed from a pontoon in St Augustine’s Reach – the hotel would appear to be floating in mid-air, as it would be built on stilts.

    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.
