Multimillion pound expansion for Wimbledon star's Perthshire Hotel
Following on from the huge success since opening, Cromlix Hotel has found itself in need of expansion due to high demand for afternoon tea.
Applications have been submitted for approval for the expansion and substantial development of Scottish Wimbledon Champion Andy Murray's hotel. Situated just outside his home town of Dunblane Cromlix House Hotel is seeking to add an impressive array of facilites and additional luxury accomodation to it's already glowing reputation.
Graeme Green, General Manager of Cromlix, said, "We receive hundreds of calls from event organisers, couples hoping to get married at Cromlix and, sadly, we have to turn most away. This new development means we can meet this demand while continuing to welcome hotel and restaurant guests all year round."
Plans to transform the dilapidated walled garden and glass houses on the estate of Murray’s Cromlix hotel into a stunning conference and wedding hall with additional bedrooms have been submitted to Stirling Council.
The conference and events area suitable for up to 200 persons as well as the inclusion of 27 more rooms, each with a private garden on the 34 Acre estate. Included in the plans is a Gymnasium designed by Andy Murray himself so you can expect a top of the range workout area fit for the rigours of maintaining a championship mindset and physique, furthermore there will be spa facilities to help you relax and ease yourself into pampered bliss.
Cromlix currently sports a waiting list for afternoon tea with 2018 being almost fully booked so it is of no surprise that the afternoon tea facilities are also in line for expansion to accommodate even more diners with a new glass fronted Afternoon Tea Room overlooking the famous Cromlix lawn.
The additional works, if approved, are due for completion in 2020. It will be a welcome boost for the local and surrounding economy which expect to create an additional 40 jobs.
A team of local businesses have been recruited to develop the plans, including Perth-based architects Denholm Partnerships and project managers Jones Associates from Glasgow.
Graeme Green added, “Since we re-opened in spring 2014 Cromlix has been a real success story, with both the hotel and restaurant far exceeding expectations and often operating at capacity. We are now hoping to build on this success by extending the existing buildings to create additional hotel bedrooms, banqueting facilities as well as growing the team."
