Queensferry Hotels to heavily invest in two Scottish flagships as hotels post £6m turnover


Edinburgh-based Queensferry Hotels is to invest in two of its Scottish hotels, with a bedroom expansion and new restaurant making up part of the plans.

The group is to plough £1.4m into the renovation and expansion of Keavil House Hotel in Dunfermline and Bruntsfield Hotel in Edinburgh after both properties recorded a generated turnover of £6m for last year.

The expansion project at Keavil House has already been completed, with the new Botanist restaurant, bar and terrace with 60 covers opening last month.

The group will now build four new bedrooms at Bruntsfield Hotel, taking the number of bedrooms to 70 when the new addition opens in May.

The foyer of the Bruntsfield will also be redesigned.

“This investment in our estate will allow us to not only retain our current customer base, but also future-proof our properties in an increasingly crowded hospitality market,” managing director Russell Imrie said.

“We are always looking at how we can better accommodate our guests, and thanks to the Bank of Scotland’s support we’re now in an even stronger position to meet and exceed our customers’ demands.”

Edinburgh-based Queensferry Hotels purchased the Bruntsfield Hotel in 1981 before acquiring Keavil House Hotel in 1988.

Both are currently operated by Queensferry Hotels under the Best Western Plus brand.
