PHOTOS: Interiors of Andy Murray's Cromlix House revealed as hotel opens

The interiors of tennis star Andy Murray's Perthshire hotel Cromlix House have been revealed, as it officially opened today.

The 15-bedroom Victorian mansion three miles north of Murray's hometown of Dunblane, which includes its own private chapel and loch, has been renovated to showcase its heritage.

Features include a blend of antique Scottish furniture, a sky blue and gold leaf bar, and a French navy and moss green colour scheme for the glass-walled Chez Roux dining room.

The accommodation features five suites and ten bedrooms, many with views over the grounds and tennis courts.

Chez Roux restaurant, overseen by chef Albert Roux and run by executive head chef Darin Campbell, is housed in a conservatory overlooking the grounds and features an open kitchen.

There are also spaces for private dining in the hotel including in a small study seating up to 10 or the traditional atmosphere of the first-floor snooker room where a full-size snooker table flips over from green baize to dining or boardroom table seating 20.

The hotel is being managed on Murray's behalf by Inverlochy Castle Management International (ICMI). Norbert Lieder, managing director, said: "Cromlix and Chez Roux combine to truly offer one of the best hotel and restaurant experiences in the country. The interiors, service, food and attention to every detail of the customer journey will make sure Cromlix becomes as well known for its service as it is for its famous owner.

"We look forward to welcoming guests from all over Scotland, the UK and the world."

ICMI already manages eight other independent properties around Scotland, including Inverlochy Castle, near Fort William, Greywalls Hotel in Gullane and The Atholl, in Edinburgh.

Mike Cantlay, chairman of VisitScotland, said: "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. 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."
