Crieff Hydro expands with three new signings
Crieff Hydro has announced an additional three signings to its family of hotels having secured the management contracts to operate the Green Hotel in Kinross and Kings House Hotel in Glencoe as well as the lease to operate the Peel Café at Glentress in Peebles.
The Green Hotel in Kinross is made up of its namesake, The Green Hotel, and the adjacent Windlestrae Hotel.
The Green Hotel has 46 rooms, the historic Jock’s Bar, Basil’s restaurant, a variety of meeting rooms and Backstage, one of the region’s most popular live music venues while the Windlestrae Hotel, located just across the road has a further 47 rooms, Monty’s restaurant, Rushes Bar, meeting and event space for up to 120 people as well as a Spa and Leisure Centre.
Both hotels are owned by the Montgomery family, who first purchased the Green Hotel in 1926. Owner Jamie Montgomery said, “Having Crieff Hydro manage our hotels is the start of a new chapter.
As well as benefiting from the experience of the management team at Crieff Hydro, I am also pleased to announce that we will be investing a six-figure sum in upgrading and refurbishing both hotels.”
Crieff Hydro has also recently added the Kings House Hotel in Glencoe to its now 10-strong group of hotels. The Kings House Hotel was acquired by the neighboring Black Corries Estate two years ago.
Over the past six months the management team at Crieff Hydro have been working closely with Bidwells, who have provided interim strategic management for the hotel. Together the two parties are progressing plans for an ambitious redevelopment which will secure the long term future of this hotel.
