A hotel in the Scottish Highlands is ‘poised’ to benefit from a £1m investment that will see new bedrooms created as demand continues to outstrip supply.
The Royal Golf Hotel, which is operated by Bespoke Hotels, has submitted plans to build five more bedrooms to total 27 at the property, to meet international demand as the hotel currently ‘turns away’ business.
If given the green light, the work would be completed late next year.
Speaking to the Press and Journal, David Sutherland said: “The Royal Golf has gone from strength to strength since we purchased, refurbished and reopened it in 2010.
“The international demand from golfers has kept it almost fully booked since Easter and we have been turning away business.
“That is why we have come forward with an investment project to extend the hotel so that it can accommodate more visitors.
The Royal Golf underwent a £400,000 refurbishment of nine bedrooms in 2017.
Twenty four apartments were also completed in the grounds earlier this year.
The hotel was built in 1885 as a private residence for Robert Hamilton-Bruce, a successful Scottish baker and flour merchant, who used the house to display his extensive art collection.
