Yesterday we announced that Cromlix House in Scotland, owned by Wimbledon champion Andy Murray, was planning a significant expansion, and now further details have emerged for the development project.
The luxury hotel, near Murray’s hometown of Dunblane, is managed by Inverlochy Castle Management Company who want to expand the property’s tearoom and create an extra 27 bedrooms to cope with the rise in demand for afternoon tea.
Now we can reveal that in addition to the new bedrooms, each of which will come with its own private garden, there will also be a handful of spa treatment rooms, a conference and events area for up to 200 people, plus a gym designed exclusively by tennis star Murray himself.
If approved the new facilities will open in autumn 2020.
Graeme Green, general manager at Cromlix, said: “Since we re-opened in spring 2014 Cromlix has been a real success story, with both the hotel and restaurant far exceeding expectations and often operating at capacity.
“We are now hoping to build on this success by extending the existing buildings to create additional hotel bedrooms, banqueting facilities as well as growing the team.
“We receive hundreds of calls from event organisers, couples hoping to get married at Cromlix and, sadly, we have to turn most away. This new development means we can meet this demand while continuing to welcome hotel and restaurant guests all year round.”
