A historic Aberdeenshire hotel has announced a major refurbishment plan for 2020 with a six-figure investment to support its growth.
Maryculter House on South Deeside Road will see all its 40 bedrooms and public areas transformed as part of this significant project which will be completed this year and kick-starts an exciting period of activity for the hotel.
Immersed in history and dating back to the order of Knights Templar in 1225AD, the hotel still boasts some beautiful original features which will be preserved as part of the refurbishment and enhanced with the modern luxury Scottish aesthetic planned for the public areas and bedrooms.
The new staff facilities form a key part of the project as the hotel’s commitment to investing in hospitality professionals is complimented with excellent facilities and training. During 2018/19 there was an increase in team members which included the appointment of managing director Peter Walker and head chef Alan Clarke, as well as further recruitment planned for 2020.
Peter Walker, managing director of Maryculter House said: “This is an exciting time for Maryculter House, we want to shine a light on the hotel and help attract visitors from near and far to the region.
With such positivity surrounding tourism in the area, our collaborative partnerships with the world famous Lonach and Braemar Highland Games, and the drive to showcase our hotel steeped in history surrounded by the beautiful Aberdeenshire countryside and River Dee, we hope the refurb will play a considerable part in diversifying the hotel and attracting new customers.”
