A brand new 100 bed Premier Inn is now complete at the £150 million Bridgwater Gateway development and opens next week.

Situated in a prime location, within the 100-acre mixed-use Bridgwater Gateway scheme near junction 24 of the M5, Bridgwater and North Petherton, opens on Tuesday, July 9th, creating around 30 jobs.

Numerous suppliers from the local area have been involved in the construction project, these include main contractors, Carter Lauren, plus several local sub-contractor companies including Hopkins Concrete, Roberts Skips, Somerset Carpenters and RJD Bricklaying, all based in Bridgwater, and Premier Fencing, based in nearby Cheddar.

Phil Wade, development manager for Bridgwater Gateway, said,

“This is another major milestone for us.

“The business park has delivered a major boost to the local economy during the construction phase, as well as leaving a legacy of creating new jobs into the future.”

The Bridgwater Gateway first phase will feature a range of new office and commercial buildings, alongside a new 150-bed, four-star hotel with conference facilities, in addition to the Premier Inn.

Tim Davies, of Colliers International, said.

“The opening of the new Premier Inn hotel will help to meet the huge demand for rooms in and around Bridgwater driven by the construction of Hinkley C and the proximity of Bristol Airport.”
