The Busby hotel in Clarkston, East Renfrewshire is being transformed into a luxury boutique hotel and has hired 70 staff members to see the project through to completion.
The hotel, part of the Manorview Hotel and Leisure Group, has been undergoing extensive development for the past 10 months to turn the building into a top entertaining and eating out attracting in the area.
The Busby Hotel will now join other luxury boutique hotels across the central belt of Scotland in the Manorview portfolio, as the group looks to grow its property empire, specialising in the restoration of old properties.
As well as 28 bedrooms, the hotel will be home to a new restaurant and bar – named Carters – a dining conservatory, two fully refurbished function suites and a honeymoon suite complete with its own garden and hot tub.
Each of the hotel’s 70 employees have gone through a detailed training programme over the last few months to prepare for the opening on October 23rd.
The hotel, in Field Road, will also join the very few hotels in Scotland to become ‘WorldHost accredited’, with all the front of house team undergoing the ‘WorldHost’ Customer Service Training Programme.
