Facilities include the galleried Lakeside restaurant with seating for 60, conference and function rooms for up to 120 delegates, and the Lodgix leisure club with heated indoor swimming pool, hot tub, gym, sunbed room and sauna.
The hotel also has planning permission to add a lakeside extension to the restaurant lounge-bar, a luxury health spa to the leisure club, a new detached lakeside function suite, and 21 detached three- and four-bedroom woodland lodges.
Chevin Country Park hotel is Crerar Hotels' seventh property and its first in England. The group also operates the Loch Fyne hotel on the shores of Loch Fyne and the Oban Bay hotel
The Leeds office of Colliers Robert Barry sold the hotel on behalf of Antony and Amanda Saint Claire.
