Marine Hotel

As part of our longstanding partnership with Macdonald Hotels, we completed the design and supervision of a major redevelopment of the Marine Hotel in North Berwick.

Location: North Berwick
Client: MacDonald Hotels
Cost: £10m
Completion: 2006

The redevelopment project has seen the addition of a swimming pool, full spa and beauty treatment facilities to the complex, increasing the leisure offering to guests.

In addition, all public areas and bedrooms have been refurbished, giving the Hotel a bright, modern feel.

As with most hotel refurbishment projects, phasing was a key issue. Strategies for undertaking the works had to be carefully developed in order to minimise disruption to the guests and reduce the commercial impact on Macdonald Hotels. Following a sixteen month contract, the project was completed and handed over during 2006.

Key challenges


“Edrington have worked with Blyth and Blyth for the past 15 years on various projects throughout the group and during this time we have developed a close and trusting partnership. B&B offer the full range of engineering services, allowing us to have a one stop shop on engineering consultancy requirements, with the obvious benefits this brings. B&B experience in the whisky industry is second to none which has the double benefit of not wasting time and money having to explain the process each time. As said previously, Edrington have been working with B&B for more than15 years and with a fair wind this relationship will continue for a further 15 years and beyond.”
