Pride of Britain Hotels announces two new members to bring consortium numbers to 49

Headland and Glenapp

Pride of Britain Hotels has announced two new members, bringing the total number of members in the consortium up to 49, just one away from its 50-hotel limit.  

The Headland in Cornwall is a family-owned luxury Grade-II property on the Cornish coast, steeped in history, and joins Pride of Britain Hotels.

First opening its doors as a hotel in 1900, the Armstrong family took over in 1970 and over four decades have transformed the property into an award-winning hotel with an investment of £30m.

The Headland now consists of 96 bedrooms, a gym, spa, five-star holiday cottages and a restaurant, and is still under the ownership of the Armstrongs.

The second hotel to join Pride of Britain Hotels is Glenapp Castle in Scotland.

A magnificent property in Ayrshire, Glenapp has also been a member of Relais and Chateaux since 2001 and was acquired by Paul and Poppy Szkiler in 2015. The property has benefited from continued investment ever since.

The 17-bed is currently undergoing an expansion programme, with a four-bed apartment penthouse apartment with private dining due to be unveiled later this year.

Also in late 2016 / early 2017, the hotel’s Palm House and lakeside dining will be available with a private cinema and whisky bar to add to Glenapp’s extensive offering.
