Mckever opens £5m serviced apartments scheme

Scotland's fast-growing hotel group McKever Hotels has moved into the fully serviced apartment market with a £5m project in Glasgow city centre.

The family-run group, which has doubled its number of three-star hotels this year to eight, opened City Apartments Glasgow in October. By mid-November it had achieved occupancy of more than 80%.

The 30 four-star apartments are sited in the 11-storey Variety Gate building on Bath Street. They offer a mix of one- and two-bedroom flats with extensive amenities, including king-size beds, plasma TVs, PlayStations and broadband.

Rates range from £69 to £149 a night and are charged by apartment, not per person.

McKever Hotels is part of property company McKever Group, founded 15 years ago.

Earlier in the year, it bought the Gordon and Richmond hotels in Tomintoul, Highlands, and this month it acquired both the 13-bedroom Cariston hotel in Ayr for about 1m and the Hawthorns B&B at Drymen, Loch Lomond, in an off-market sale.

Sales and operations director Sean Craig said the group was actively looking for new hotels and serviced apartments throughout Scotland.
