Next time Sir Sean Connery comes to Scotland he could opt to stay in not one, but two, hotel rooms named after him. Billy Lowe has a Sir Sean Connery room at Angels Share while Wimbledon Champion Andy Murray has also named one, Connery, at Cromlix House, the hotel he bought earlier this year. The room names were revealed as Inverlochy Castle Management, who are managing the hotel on behalf of Murray, launched a new website and online booking facility for the hotel which should be open for April 2014. Murray has said he is “delighted” with progress at his new luxury hotel which is currently being refurbished. He said, “I have obviously been pretty busy recently, but I’ve been keeping in touch with the refurbishment work at Cromlix and am delighted with its progress. I’m really looking forward to the hotel getting up and running, creating new jobs in my home community and supporting other local businesses.”
Guests can choose from 10 luxurious, individually designed bedrooms and five suites at the elegant Victorian mansion, close to Andy’s hometown of Dunblane, in Perthshire. The tennis superstar has named each of the rooms after great Scots from the past and present. The five suites are called the Hoy Spa suite, Bruce suite, Ferguson Spa suite, Eden suite and Burns suite. While rooms include the names Bowes-Lyon, Connery, Conan Doyle, Fleming, Barrie and Stewart. Cromlix is already fully booked throughout next year’s Ryder Cup, which is being staged a short drive away at Gleneagles.
