New development plans for popular Cromlix Hotel

Andy Murray to design gym
Plans to transform the dilapidated walled garden and glass houses on the estate of Andy Murray’s Cromlix hotel into a stunning conference and wedding hall with additional bedrooms have been submitted to Stirling Council.

A new glass fronted Afternoon Tea Room overlooking the famous Cromlix lawn will also be built in order to meet demand – with bookings in the existing tea room full for most of 2018.  

Extending into the walled garden area in the five star hotel’s 34-acre grounds, the new development will feature 27 additional bedrooms, each with a private garden; spa treatment rooms; a conference and events area for up to 200 people; and a gym designed by the tennis champion.  

Inverlochy Castle Management International, which manages the hotel on behalf of the Murrays, expects to create 40 new jobs in the local area.  

A team of local businesses have been recruited to develop the plans, including Perth-based architects Denholm Partnerships and project managers Jones Associates from Glasgow.  

If approved the new facilities will open in autumn 2020.  

Graeme Green, general manager at Cromlix, said: “Since we re-opened in spring 2014 Cromlix has been a real success story, with both the hotel and restaurant far exceeding expectations and often operating at capacity.  

“We are now hoping to build on this success by extending the existing buildings to create additional hotel bedrooms, banqueting facilities as well as growing the team.  

“We receive hundreds of calls from event organisers, couples hoping to get married at Cromlix and, sadly, we have to turn most away. This new development means we can meet this demand while continuing to welcome hotel and restaurant guests all year round.”
