PLANS to build four floating hotel pods at Milford Haven Marina have been approved by Pembrokeshire County Council.
The Port of Milford Haven says the four-star floating suites will form part of its £70m Milford Waterfront development.
It hopes its plans will build on the ‘established retail, café and restaurant experience’ to create a vibrant waterfront destination attracting thousands more visitors to Milford Haven and Pembrokeshire each year.
“Our idea was developed when we were looking at ways to quickly add to the existing bedstock in Milford Haven,” said Neil Jenkins, Destination Director at the Port.
“It was also important to us that whatever was proposed would match the high quality offering already enjoyed at Milford’s four gold anchor marina; a highly sought after accreditation within the marine leisure industry.
“The floating suites should offer a unique experience for anyone wanting to soak up the tranquil marina atmosphere without necessarily owning a boat.”
Work is continuing on developing this proposal and supporting business plan, and the Port hopes to officially open the suites before Easter 2018.
