Hotels group is back in action

Manorview invests in estate as it reopens for business

INDEPENDENT Scottish hotels group Manorview has unveiled the results of major investments in two of its properties as it reopens its estate.

Undertakings have included a multi-million pound overhaul of The Redhurst Hotel in Giffnock, south of Glasgow, and the addition of seven new lodges at Cornhill Castle in Biggar.

The refurbishment of the Redhurst has been underway since February 2020 and has included the overhaul of the hotel’s restaurant and bar, the creation of a new ballroom and the addition of new guest bedrooms.

The hotel will reopen to the public on Wednesday (12th May).

“After what has been undoubtedly the most challenging year for the hospitality industry we are delighted to be gearing up to officially re-launch the Redhurst Hotel as the hotel industry comes back to life,” said Manorview managing director, David Tracey.

“The Redhurst has been a much-loved venue in the heart of the Giffnock community for decades and the new-look Redhurst is ready to be reborn. We will be keeping the same relaxed and welcoming ethos which the Redhurst is renowned for but will be providing a much more diverse and contemporary offering to our customers.”

And the company will unveil seven new lodges in the grounds of its Cornhill Castle property next month.

The lodges, which are currently under construction, will each sleep up to four people and include king size or twin rooms with en suite bathrooms, living spaces, kitchens and private decking areas with hot tubs.

They are scheduled to be completed by 14th June.

Operations director Carlton Graham said the lodges have been added as “the staycation market sets to boom for summer 2021”.

“We have been planning the development for some time and we are confident now is the perfect time to add to our offering at Cornhill,” said Graham.

“By increasing our capacity for overnight accommodation on site we can also increase residential guests numbers for weddings as well as offer flexible room options for events and small celebrations.”
