Tennis superstar Andy Murray’s new luxury hotel, Cromlix House, was named the best in Scotland at the 2014 Scottish Hotel Awards held on April 27th– just 27 days after it opened its doors to the paying public.
Cromlix, close to the Wimbledon champion’s home town of Dunblane, Perthshire, only opened its doors on April 1 after an extensive refurbishment which included turf supplied by Turfland. 2,500 square metres of our quality turf was laid by Mo-Lawn Ltd on the site which is set in 34 acres of secluded woodland and garden grounds.
We reported on the Victorian mansions refurbishment last month and are delighted with its success at the 2014 Scottish Hotel Awards held at the Sheraton Grand Hotel in Edinburgh. Judges’ chairman Gary McLean-Quin said Cromlix was the unanimous choice and praised all involved. “What impressed us, and specifically enabled this award, was the involvement of award-winning management and individuals in every department – people of excellence we’ve known for a decade. The result is no less than a national treasure.”
Andy, 26, spent more than £2million buying and refurbishing the hotel in Kinbuck which is run by Inverlochy Castle Management International, who also won the Hotel Management Company Award for the fifth year in a row at the prestigious Edinburgh ceremony.
