The Sonas Collection in Skye has appointed a new group general manager to oversee the group’s three hotels.

Andreas Maszczyk will be responsible for managing Toravaig House, Duisdale House and Skeabost House, north of Portree as part of his new role, working alongside the group’s owner Anne Gracie Gunn, who founded the Sonas Collection with her late husband Ken.

German-born Maszczyk was previously general manager of the 240-bedroom George Hotel in Edinburgh for five years until 2020, where he led two successful rebrands – Principal Hayley to Principal and later to IHG, as well as two major capital expenditure projects totalling £23m.

Other positions have included general manager at St David’s Hotel and Spa on Cardiff Bay.

Anne Gracie Gunn commented: “Andreas has a remarkable track record of taking two of the finest hotels in the UK to new heights. We are delighted he has agreed to add his experience and expertise to our family-run business on this wonderful island.”

Maszczyk added: “I am looking forward to developing the Sonas Collection further both commercially and in terms of the customer’s experience of accommodation, food and service.”

Sonas Collection was founded with the acquisition of Toravaig House in 2005 and two years later the group grew with the purchase of Duisdale House in 2007.

2015 saw the Collection completed with the addition of Skeabost House.
