SimpsInns Acquire North Gailes Golf and Leisure

SimpsInns has acquired North Gailes Golf and Leisure, which lies adjacent to one of its existing properties, The Gailes Hotel on Marine Drive in Irvine. For years The Gailes Hotel and North Gailes have worked closely with each other as SimpsInns hotel residents have complimentary use of the gym and spa facilities but now SimpsInns, owned by husband and wife team Malcolm and Karen Simpson, have added the business to their growing portfolio. They already own various other businesses in Ayrshire including Si! Café:Bar:Restaurant and Si! Italia in Irvine, The Waterside, West Kilbride, Old Loans Inn, Troon and the Riverside Inn which is currently closed for refurbishment.
North Gailes has a strong gym, spa and leisure membership base and is also a multi-faceted complex with a floodlit driving range, nine-hole golf course and dedicated pitching area. Malcolm Simpson comments, “For several years now our company has enjoyed a period of sustained growth and with each new project we have brought something new to the marketplace. This is another very exciting chapter in the SimpsInns story.” He added, “We continue to offer a diverse range of products through our award winning hotels, bars and restaurants across Ayrshire. And by acquiring North Gailes we will take the company in another new direction.”
He concluded, “We now have the opportunity to enhance the existing product at The Gailes with the prospect of creating a standout leisure and resort hotel here in the heart of Ayrshire. We couldn’t be in a better location, surrounded by such great championship golf courses and with so many other great attractions on our doorstep.” The North Gailes acquisition brings the number of staff now working for the company to 200.
