Jon and Victoria Erasmus Purchase River House

Jon and Victoria Erasmus have grown their Northern-based business with the purchase of the River House. The couple who took over the Alexander and Brae Ness Hotels in Inverness early last year, and who have invested £1.5m in their flagship hotel Glen Mhor, have turned the River House into luxury self-catering accommodation.

It takes the number of guests the couple can now accommodate in Inverness to 81 from 51 in the space of a year. However plans to add a brewery and visitor centre have stalled after Highland Council rejected their plans. But the couple could now put an appeal to the Scottish government.
