Pride of Britain Hotels has announced two new members, bringing the total number of members in the consortium up to 49, just one away from its 50-hotel limit.
The Headland in Cornwall is a family-owned luxury Grade-II property on the Cornish coast, steeped in history, and joins Pride of Britain Hotels.
First opening its doors as a hotel in 1900, the Armstrong family took over in 1970 and over four decades have transformed the property into an award-winning hotel with an investment of £30m.
The Headland now consists of 96 bedrooms, a gym, spa, five-star holiday cottages and a restaurant, and is still under the ownership of the Armstrongs.
The second hotel to join Pride of Britain Hotels is Glenapp Castle in Scotland.
A magnificent property in Ayrshire, Glenapp has also been a member of Relais and Chateaux since 2001 and was acquired by Paul and Poppy Szkiler in 2015. The property has benefited from continued investment ever since.
The 17-bed is currently undergoing an expansion programme, with a four-bed apartment penthouse apartment with private dining due to be unveiled later this year.
Also in late 2016 / early 2017, the hotel’s Palm House and lakeside dining will be available with a private cinema and whisky bar to add to Glenapp’s extensive offering.
