Scotland's Busby Hotel re-opens after £2.5m refurb

The Busby Hotel near Glasgow, Scotland, has re-opened following after a £2.5m refurbishment.

Part of the Manorview Hotel & Leisure Group, the three-star, 29-bedroom property has updated its bedrooms, bar, restaurant and function rooms during the 10-month closure.

The décor now mixes the building's original features with modern touches, such as Bose sound systems, while the 140-cover restaurant, Carter's, is offering a menu featuring of local produce.

The hotel also features two function rooms that can accommodate and cater for up to 200 people, which look on to private gardens, and have a balcony overlooking the River Cart.

Seventy people have been employed to staff the newly-opened site, all of which have been recruited from the local area, and put through an intensive eight-week training programme.

Room rates for the hotel start at £70, with suites from £170, including breakfast.

Steve Graham, managing director of Manorview Hotel & Leisure Group, said: "The Busby is our most ambitious project to date. While past developments have undergone phased refurbishment, this is the first time we've completely renovated the entire property at the same time. It has been a huge task undertaken to get the project in on time and budget, but we are thrilled with the results."

Founded by Graham in 2007, the group now owns and operates six properties across Scotland, including the Torrance Hotel Bar and Restaurant in South Lanarkshire, and the Bowfield Hotel and Country Club, Renfrewshire.

The family business now employs more than 400 people.
