Dunkeld House Hotel becomes Crerar Hotels eighth property in Scotland


Dunkeld House in Perthshire has joined the Crerar Hotels portfolio brining the groups hotel portfolio to eight in Scotland. The 100-bed four-star, luxury, country house hotel on the banks of the River Tay joins the Isle of Mull Hotel & Spa, Oban Bay Hotel, Balmoral Arms in Ballater, Glencoe Inn, Thainstone House in Inverurie, Loch Fyne Hotel & Spa in Inverary and Golf View Hotel & Spa in Nairn.

The hotel which recently had a major £800k refurbishment, creating three new guest rooms and renovating the flagship suites, plans to add eight high-end woodland lodges in the Woodland Dell, expand the leisure and spa facilities and the current restaurant and create a new food and beverage offering.

The Perthshire hotel has also welcomed interim General Manager Paul Leitch, a hospitality veteran who has since secured an impressive four-star AA rating for the hotel and AA Rosette for the Hotels Garden Restaurant.

Chris Wayne-Wills, CEO of Crerar Hotels said, “We are delighted to welcome Dunkeld House Hotel into the Crerar Hotels collection.

“Its luxury, authentic hospitality offering is well aligned to our current portfolio and complements our existing mix of hotels well.

“Its recent investment also brings it in line with the high-quality experience people expect with Crerar Hotels.

“Furthermore, we are committed to investing in training, recruitment and various opportunities for the Dunkeld House team to ensure it delivers on the experience people expect when they come to a Crerar Hotel and it’s great to bring Paul onboard as the interim General Manager to really drive that vision forward.

“By bringing Dunkeld House Hotel into our portfolio, we have a fantastic opportunity to use our wealth of experience to invest in it further to enhance the offering here and develop it as an all-encompassing luxury adventure resort within the Scottish Highlands.

“Dunkeld House Hotel is a perfect fit with Crerar Hotels and all we aspire to be. It’s a beautiful hotel in an unmatched location that offers an exceptional guest experience, and we are looking forward to building on the huge opportunity that the setting offers us to expand and enhance the offering within national and international audiences.”
