Wimbledon champion Andy Murray's hotel opens for bookings

The hotel bought by Wimbledon champion Andy Murray in February has begun to take bookings for its first guests.

Cromlix hotel in Perthshire, near to Murray's hometown of Dunblane, is currently undergoing an extensive refurbishment and will re-open in spring 2014, in time for the Ryder Cup, which is being staged at nearby Gleneagles.

Murray said that he had been keeping tabs on the hotel's progress throughout his successful Wimbledon title bid

He added: "I have obviously been pretty busy recently, but I've been keeping in touch with the refurbishment work at Cromlix and am delighted with its progress.

"I'm really looking forward to the hotel getting up and running, creating new jobs in my home community and supporting other local businesses."

Murray has named the hotel's 10 bedrooms and five suites after great Scots past and present.

The hotel is being managed by Inverlochy Castle Management International (ICMI), which already manages eight other properties around Scotland, including Inverlochy Castle, near Fort William, Greywalls Hotel in Gullane and The Atholl, in Edinburgh.

Norbert Lieder, ICMI's managing director, said: "There has been a huge amount of interest in Cromlix ever since Andy bought it and made his plans for the hotel known. That has intensified since his wonderful win at Wimbledon.

"The ICMI staff and project team are hard at work on the major refurbishment programme to create a five star destination here. The launch of the website and online booking facility is a major milestone in the project. We are very much looking forward to seeing the bookings coming in and welcoming our first guests next year."
