Glenapp Castle in Ayrshire, Scotland is reaping the benefits from its recent multi-million pound investment into its new penthouse apartment, with a 150% rise in occupancy levels.
Following the completion of the luxury hotel’s new £2m Endeavour apartment, which was boosted by a £1.25m finance package from Royal Bank of Scotland, Glenapp Castle has also seen an increase in guest staying on average 2.5 times longer than previously.
The Endeavour covers almost 4,500 square feet of the hotel’s entire top floor.
This new boasts a media room, library and guest room, its own sauna and treatment room, and private kitchen together with four bedrooms. The apartment is served by a butler and private chef.
Owners Truestone, which is headed up by Paul and Poppy Szkiler, acquired the property in 2015 and have invested signficnatly into developments since then.
Work is also almost complete on a new second restaurant offering that will serve a la carte dining, in addition to its fine dining eatery at the hotel.
Paul Szkiler, CEO of Glenapp Castle’s parent company, Truestone, said: “We have worked hard over the years to refine our guest offering, making Glenapp Castle a destination with over 65 activities and experiences available. Traditionally, more than 50% of our guests have come from overseas, and in the era of the staycation, we are extremely pleased to see very high levels of occupation.”
