Premier Inn to open four properties in Scotland

Budget hotel chain Premier Inn is set to open four new properties in Scotland adding almost 400 bedrooms to its estate in the country.

Premier Inn Glasgow, Pacific Quay will be a six-storey 180-bedroom hotel and restaurant on the banks of the River Clyde, opposite the Scottish Exhibition and Conference Centre and new Hydro arena. Construction work is due to commence shortly, with the hotel opening in time for the Commonwealth Games in Glasgow in 2014.

The Premier Inn Perth will be an 83-bedroom hotel and restaurant converted from the old Pullar's Building on Mill Street, while the property in St Andrews a 65-bedroom Premier Inn hotel and restaurant on Largo Road.

Finally the Premier Inn hotel in Stirling will comprise a 60-bedroom and Beefeater Grill restaurant at Forthside.

Commenting on the Scottish expansion, John Bates, head of acquisitions UK and Ireland for Whitbread Hotels and Restaurants, said: "We're investing in projects right across Scotland and these latest deals add to the hotels we have recently opened in Glasgow and Ayr. The proposed hotels at Perth, St Andrews, Stirling and Glasgow Pacific Quay highlight the flexibility and security we bring to projects, giving residents and local authorities the confidence they need that we are the right partner for them."
