I had a tour of the Ocean Mist in Leith today, the newly restored ship on the shore has a new level, and some impressive plans.
Owners Alan and Nadia Pedley hope to open for business before the end of the year, and although there is still plenty to do their whole family is pitching in and I am sure they will get there on time.
The décor inside is high end, tailored wood panelling and beautifully designed ironwork guides you around the three story floating hotel.
The finishing touches nod to the art deco style of the 1920’s, from when the ship had its hey day and throughout the hotel you will find links to the boats glorious past.
I can’t wait to return once the Ocean Mist is ready for guests, to have a whisky at the bar and to be transported to the luxurious past, without even leaving the dock.
