Construction work on a new, multi-million pound Kirkcaldy hotel is expected to start in March, The Courier can reveal.

Premier Inn says that 30 new jobs will be created when its complex opens in the north of the town, potentially before the end of the year.

The company says that the final details are being put in place to allow it to purchase the Begg Road site, sandwiched between the A92 and the Fife Central Retail Park.

The hotel will have 60 rooms and will be joined at the site by another heavyweight of the service industry, a Marston’s restaurant.

Construction of that is likely to run alongside that of the hotel, with an expected capacity of 260.

Nick Johnston, Premier Inn’s acquisitions manager for Scotland, said that construction work would start soon.

“We were delighted to be awarded permission for this site in Kirkcaldy, which is an exciting location for Premier Inn,” he said.

“We are currently working through the planning conditions and consents, enabling us to complete the purchase of the site, and anticipate that work will start on site in March this year.

“As well as giving more choice to visitors, the new hotel will bring £5m of investment and 30 new jobs to Kirkcaldy.”

Licensing applications for both premises were approved by Fife Licensing Board last summer.
