It revealed the group is set to spend more than £4.5m on improvements to Loch Fyne Hotel and Spa, the Deeside Inn and Golf View Hotel and Spa, taking its total spend on its portfolio to over £10m in the past 12 months.
Both Loch Fyne and Golf View will benefit from total investments of £765k and £850k respectively, to complete the first phases of Crerar Hotels’ plans to offer outstanding experiences across each of its spa hotels.
According to the hotel, work on Loch Fyne’s new ‘Shore Spa’ has already begun, and will include additional therapy suites, a healing Himalayan salt room, eucalyptus steam treatment alongside a brand-new terrace with loch-side saunas, ice drenches and further improvements to the existing hydro experience.
Crerar also said work is starting on Golf View to transform its existing country club into a “luxurious spa”, with plans to double therapy suites as well as the addition of Scotland’s first ‘stone bath’ steam alongside a Himalayan salt therapy room.
Finally, the Deeside Inn at Ballater will be relaunched in spring 2022 as The Balmoral Arms, reimagined following a £2.2m first stage refurb.
Chris Wayne-Wills, CEO of Crerar Hotels, said: “It was always our intention to invest in our portfolio and people coming out of the multiple Covid lockdowns as a way of facing the challenges of the pandemic head on.
“We want to showcase the best in authentic Scottish hospitality as we open our doors to the world again, and that’s exactly what our continued investment is set to achieve.”
