Andy Murray’s luxury Scottish hotel opens following refurbishment

Andy Murray’s Cromlix luxury hotel in Perthshire, Scotland, has today opened for business following the tennis player’s £1.8m purchase of the property in February 2013.

The five-star Cromlix Hotel, located near Murray’s home town of Dunblane, features five suites, ten bedrooms, a chapel, reception hall, two drawing rooms, a conservatory, library and meeting rooms. There is also the Chez Roux restaurant overseen by French chef Albert Roux and run by award-winning executive head chef Darin Campbell, offering locally-sourced produce.

In addition, the site boasts landscaped grounds, plus a tennis court and practice wall in the Wimbledon colours of purple and green.

“We are delighted that one of our greatest sportsmen – Andy Murray – has entered the tourism game and I’m sure he will be a terrific ambassador for the industry,” said Mike Cantalay, chair for VisitScotland.

“The revamped Cromlix is bound to be a huge draw for visitors from all over the world, generating the kind of excitement that Andy creates on court. I am positive this venture will be a resounding success and we wish the team all the very best.”

Cromlix House was built in 1874 as the family home for the Edens, who own the surrounding 2,000 acre estate.

The hotel is being managed by Inverlochy Castle Management International (ICMI) and and will create 40 new jobs for the area.
