Bespoke Hotels has purchased the Scottish hotel group, McMillan Hotels, for an undisclosed sum.
The McMillan Hotels collection comprises three family-friendly hotels operating across South West Scotland: North West Castle (Stranraer), Cally Palace Hotel & Golf Course (Gatehouse of Fleet) and Fernhill Hotel (Portpatrick).
Business will continue as usual for all staff and customers at the three- and four-star venues.
Thomas Greenall, Chief Executive Officer at Bespoke Hotels, commented: “We are delighted to add such characterful hotels to our portfolio. The trio are intrinsic to the hospitality scene in South West Scotland, and we cannot wait to develop them further, building on their excellent reputation within the community.
“We can confirm that the current team at the hotel will be able to continue their roles and day-to-day activities unaffected – we are keen for business to continue as normal. Overall, this is another significant milestone for the Bespoke family, as the acquisition will bring our group to almost 90 hotels, 26 of which are in Scotland.”
Douglas McMillan, Managing Director of McMillan Hotels, added: “We are excited to announce that our three Scottish hotels are now part of the Bespoke collection. As the hotels have been owned by the McMillan family for many years, it was imperative that the trio were placed in safe hands. Ultimately, we could not be happier with the outcome of our sale of the hotels and we very much look forward to seeing what the future brings for them.”
Cally Palace is a classic Georgian country house hotel, set across 150 acres of land and boasting its own golf course.
North West Castle is a three-star operation complete with an indoor curling rink.
Fernhill Hotel is a three-star coastal hotel which offers views across the harbour and over the Irish Sea.
The appointment takes Bespoke’s portfolio to almost 90 hotels and over 5,000 rooms.
