Murrayshall Country House Hotel and Golf Club has announced that it is has become only the third BW Premier Collection by Best Western hotel in Scotland.
The announcement follows an “extensive renovation programme” at Murrayshall that has seen the 400-year-old estate’s owners invest in excess of £2m to bring a “luxurious” new look and feel to the country house.
Murrayshall will now feature on both bestwestern.com and bestwestern.co.uk as well as all the brand’s reservation channels as one of a carefully curated portfolio of 75 upscale and luxury boutique 4-star hotels worldwide.
Kevin Keenan, general manager of Murrayshall Country House Hotel and Golf Club, said: “Speaking on behalf of the entire team and ownership group we are honoured to become part of the BW Premier Collection by Best Western.
“It’s also especially gratifying to become part of an elite group of hotels following the significant investment our owners have put in to enhance all areas of the property, enabling us to deliver the perfect combination of traditional comfort and modern luxury to our guests. By working closely with Best Western we are confident that we will raise awareness for Murrayshall, as well as increase our inbound traveller volumes in the years to come.”
Created by and for the world’s leading independent hoteliers, the BW Premier Collection by Best Western redefines the traditional soft brand model with unprecedented flexibility and true partnership for independent hoteliers, therefore allowing Murrayshall to maintain its individual identity and personality which has seen guests return year on year.
Rob Paterson, CEO at Best Western Great Britain, added: “We’re delighted to welcome Murrayshall Country House Hotel, BW Premier Collection to our brilliantly different collection of independently owned properties. Our collection of BW Premier Collection properties is a great example of how we are delivering more to our guests. We look forward to working in partnership with the team at the hotel to showcase and celebrate their hotel both locally and globally."
Located at the heart of Scotland, amidst glorious Perthshire countryside near the town of Scone, the 365-acre Murrayshall estate has long been popular with local and international guests looking for an intimate country house experience, coupled with 27-holes of scenic parkland golf.
Following two years of renovation work, the hotel’s interior, including its award-wining Lynedoch Brasserie, lounges, function & meeting rooms, 40 bedrooms and suites have all been beautifully refurbished, providing guests with the perfect environment in which to unwind, indulge and take in the majestic surroundings of Murrayshall.
The golf courses at Murrayshall have also benefitted from over £250k of investment in the greenkeeping team, new machinery and an extensive bunker and drainage programme that will ensure they are in their best ever condition this season. A new golfers’ clubhouse facility, including refurbished changing rooms and spike bar, will also open in May, providing members and guests with a welcoming environment in which to relax before or after their round.
