Cromlix House Hotel: Andy Murray’s stunning Perthshire hotel revealed
The wait is over! Andy Murray’s sumptuous hotel Cromlix House opens today and the lavish redesign has us all gasping with awe! The 26-year-old tennis star bought Cromlix House Hotel for £1.8million in February last year. We are not going to waste this space with words but simply show you the pictures so you can see for yourself!
The hotel will be managed by Andy Murray by Inverlochy Castle Management International, which already runs Greywalls, Inverlochy Castle, Inverlodge and Rockpool Reserve.
Murray said ‘ I’m please to be able to give something back to the community I grew up in’. Chez Roux restaurant, overseen by chef Albert Roux and run by executive head chef Darin Campbell, is housed in a conservatory overlooking the grounds and features an open kitchen.
Murray is set to miss the hotel’s grand opening as he will be in Italy, preparing for the Davis Cup quarter final. Instead, his mum Judy will be the guest of honour – which is fitting as she has masterminded much of the hotel’s refit.
ICMI’s managing director, Norbert Lieder, said: ‘Cromlix and Chez Roux combine to truly offer one of the best hotel and restaurant experiences in the country. ‘The interiors, service, food and attention to every detail of the customer journey will make sure Cromlix becomes as well known for its service as it is for its famous owner. ‘We look forward to welcoming guests from all over Scotland, the UK and the world.’
The stunning bar features wall murals of peacocks hand-painted in gold leaf.
The five star retreat is set in 34 acres of secluded woodland and gardens just three mile from the Wimbledon champions home town of Dunblane. Rooms at the hotel will cost up to £585 per night in peak season.
