Second Premier Inn planned for St Helier

Posted: 05/04/2019

Bath Street Redevelopment CGIJersey property investment and development company Le Masurier has entered into an agreement with Whitbread, the parent company of Premier Inn, to bring a second Premier Inn to Jersey, as part of a major redevelopment in the north of St Helier.

The proposed £70 million redevelopment, on Bath Street, will include:
• 122-bedroom Premier Inn hotel
• 145 residential apartments and car parking
• Retail, bar and restaurant units
• Pedestrian street connecting the Millennium Town Park to the library into town
• More green areas, pavement widening and street art

The Premier Inn is expected to create 35 new jobs and accommodate 40,000 overnight stays in Jersey, with the potential to attract annual visitor spend of £1.6 million and, in turn, support more than 30 year-round jobs in the tourism sector. 

Le Masurier is holding two public exhibitions of the plans at the Freedom Centre (formerly the Odeon Cinema). Islanders are invited to attend on the afternoons of 9 and 10 April to view and comment on images of the new site.

Brian McCarthy, Managing Director of Le Masurier, said: “Despite the whole Brexit uncertainty, this demonstrates Le Masurier’s confidence in investment in Jersey, and Whitbread’s confidence in the island. This is a real success story for Jersey and will provide a host of social and economic benefits.”

Jacqui Allum, Head of Estate Development at Whitbread, added: "Jersey is a relatively new market for Premier Inn and our confidence to invest further in the island has been underpinned by the strong performance of our Charing Cross hotel."
