Luxury hotel chain Qhotels has reopened the prestigious Scottish hotel, The Westerwood, situated in 400 acres of beautiful countryside at the foot of the Campsie Hills midway between Glasgow and Stirling after a £14 million refit.
The refurbishment includes new conference facilities and additional bedrooms. But it is the championship 18-hole, par 72 golf course that makes The Westerwood one of the most notable hotels in Scotland. In 2009, the hotel will host Scottish PGA and Scottish Golf Union events.
Nic Oldham, general manager of The Westerwood, said: “The hotel has amazing facilities and I am positive we can cement our position as the premier conference and events destination in Scotland. Our leisure and spa facilities will also ensure our guests have a truly memorable stay.”
The new main event suite, the Carrick Suite, can hold 500 theatre-style and 300 for dinner dance. The hotel also features six further board rooms that can hold from 10 to 40 and two further suites that can hold up to 100 for private dining.
The group has also recently reopened the Ashford International Hotel after a £10 million refurbishment project, which has brought a fresh and contemporary facelift to its facilities.
The investment at the hotel, situated in the heart of Kent, just off the M20 has provided a total overhaul of 179 of the hotel’s bedrooms, an update to the Kent and Canterbury suites and added a further four, ground floor meeting rooms, including some with natural daylight. All the hotels meeting and conference facilities are supported by an expert team of AV technicians based at the hotel.
Deirdre Billing, general manager at Ashford International, commented: “The investment ensures the hotel remains at the forefront of luxury to our guests and maintains its reputation for one of the best hotels in Kent."
