The five-red-AA-star Old Course Hotel, Golf Resort & Spa in St Andrews, Fife, has unveiled plans for a total refurbishment of its 144-bedrooms, alongside an extension to its spa.
The refurbished bedrooms will include new windows, lighting and air conditioning, while the spa will feature a new lap pool and gym.
During the renovation, some of the resort's staff will have the opportunity to undertake professional development courses, work placements, and scholarships and community work with HIT Hospitality Industry Trust (HIT) Scotland and Kohler Co.
Stephen Carter, who was appointed general manager of the hotel last month, said the intention is to take the hotel's bedrooms to another level. "At the moment, our bedrooms and suites provide a five-red-star experience and now it's time to surprise our guests with the unexpected. Our plan encompasses everything you would hope to see in a hotel room, plus so much more. We can't wait to unveil the new look."
Kohler Co, which also owns a golf resort in Kohler, Wisconsin, in the US, acquired the Old Course hotel in 2005. It also owns the Hamilton Grand, a Victorian property comprising 26 luxury apartments in St Andrews, which it bought three years ago. The private company manufactures kitchen and bathroom products; engine and power systems; furniture; cabinetry and tiles.
