The Liner

Please accept our apologies for any inconvenience caused by the development of a new apartment building by Acorn Blue next-door. Known as The Liner, some of the site works are currently prominent to St Michaels guests.


While the works remain beyond our control, we have now been provided with a clearer picture of the development’s timelines: the external works are scheduled to complete in autumn 2020 and, as the focus will then turn to the internals, any noise disruption will be greatly reduced. The crane is then due to be dismantled later in autumn 2020, together with all the scaffolding. We understand practical completion is marked for early 2021.


We believe that rooms on the west side of the Beach House are somewhat affected while the works are ongoing, together with rooms in the Captain's House and a handful in the main house. While some of these rooms had previously enjoyed a limited view of the sea, that is no longer the case. As such, our rooms and descriptions have been reclassified to provide a more accurate picture. If you have any concerns about your upcoming stay, please speak with our reservations team who will do their utmost to ensure your concerns are dealt with.


Work times on the site are as follows (though this may be affected by changes in legislation due to Covid-19):

Monday to Friday: 8am to 5pm

Saturday: 8am to 12pm


On completion, the Acorn Blue development will deliver 53 luxury apartments and a retail outlet.


As always, the enjoyment of your stay is our highest priority and we look forward to welcoming you to St Michaels.
