Belfast based Norlin gets funds to build Peterborough Hilton hotel

Fletton QuaysThe council in Peterborough has approved the funding needed to bring the prestigious Hilton hotel brand to the East Midlands city. The nine-storey Hilton Garden Inn will feature 160 guestrooms and a portfolio of top-notch facilities including a sky-high bar.

The Peterborough Hilton will be located on Fletton Quays and right beside the south bank of the River Nene. The redundant industrial zone is being developed as a high-end mixed-use residential, shopping and entertainment quarter.

Peterborough Investment Partnership has agreed financing which will enable Belfast based Norlin Hotels to build the £20 million hotel. Norlin Ventures is the parent company of the hotels ancillary. Peterborough Investment Partnership is lending its new partners £15 million to develop the Peterborough Hilton.

At a recent meeting, Peterborough councillors were told the £15 million was being borrowed at preferential interest rates and would be loaned on to Norlin at higher rates. Council leader John Holdich explained that there had been lots of interest in building the Fletton Quays hotel.

Mr Holdich carried on by claiming the arrival of one the planet’s most celebrated hotel brands was a testament to the fact people believed Fletton Quays and Peterborough were going places. He finished off with the note he believed the Hilton Garden Inn would likely become a highly sought destination on its own.

The ninth-floor Sky Bar will be lofty and close enough to give commanding views over Peterborough’s Norman-era cathedral. Other highlights at the inn will be up-market dining outlets, a state-of-the-art fitness centre and multi-purpose meeting rooms.
