A hotel in Inverness is pumping a six-figure investment into an expansion project that will see the creation of a new micro-brewery on site alongside a handful of other developments on site.
Glen Mhor Hotel on the bands of River Ness, recently acquired the Waterside Restaurant and is now investing in transforming the eatery to mark the first phase of a wider overhaul at the property.
Planning permission has also been secured to build a ‘state-of-the-art’ micro-brewery and visitor attraction at the hotel, supported by a rolling scheme of reinvestment and a banking facility.
Glen Mhor Hotel is owned by Jon and Victoria Erasmus, who since 2011 have focused on developing the business, expanding from 44 bedrooms to 111 after acquiring three bed and breakfasts, Alexander, BraeNess and Ness Bank.
As part of this latest round of investment, one of the current restaurants at Glen Mhor’s will close to become a whisky and wine bar, headed up by newly-appointed manager and whisky specialist Scott Sutherland.
General manager Emmanuel Moine said: “With the refurbishment and new focus, our aim is to have a ‘funky’ food and beverage offering. We are looking to up the game.
“We wanted to offer food, drink and the atmosphere to match the experience, serving quality Scottish and European dishes alongside recognised family favourites.”
