Crerar Hotels unveils newly refurbished Balmoral Arms

The £2.2m refurbishment is almost complete, with the Scottish hotel group providing a first look at the hotel’s new design concept, spa treatment rooms and dining experience

Crerar Hotels has unveiled its’ newly refurbished Royal Deeside inn, which has been renamed as the Balmoral Arms, for the first time following a multi-million-pound investment.

The £2.2m refurbishment is almost complete, with the Scottish hotel group providing a first look at the hotel’s new design concept, spa treatment rooms and dining experience.

The refurb reportedly preserved the “unique character” of the building whilst creating individual deluxe suites, family suites, couple’s rooms and rooms designed specifically for guests who are visiting for outdoor adventures.

The full refurbishment, including the restaurant and spa treatment rooms, will be complete by the end of June, according to Crerar, which said it is also investing in its people and portfolio with the creation of new jobs at the venue. 

The refurbishment is part of an ongoing programme of investment across 2022, which will see a total of £4.5m spent across Golf View Hotel and Spa in Nairn and Loch Fyne Hotel and Spa, as well as the Balmoral Arms.

Chris Wayne-Wills, CEO of Crerar Hotels, said: “With the completion of works at the Balmoral Arms, we can now be confident in providing the very best in authentic Scottish hospitality that reflects its natural environment.

“Investing so significantly and relaunching the Balmoral Arms means we can offer guests an experience that is fitting with the wider area’s royal heritage, as they take in all that this stunning corner of Scotland has to offer. We look forward to welcoming guests to experience the Balmoral Arms over the summer months.” 

Joanna Whysall, general manager of the Balmoral Arms, said: “It’s an absolute privilege to be launching the Balmoral Arms at such an exciting time. 

“As we reach completion, our design concepts are really shining through and reflect the beautiful tones of heather, the woodlands and greenery that you pass when travelling to such an iconic location, this reflects stunning surroundings of the Balmoral Arms all year-round and is something we are incredibly proud to present to our guests.” 

She added: “I’m looking forward to recruit further members of our outstanding team for our new proposition in the heart of Royal Deeside – and at the most fitting time, during a milestone jubilee year.”

The series of investments across the three properties comes after Crerar Hotels unveiled the results of a £500,000 investment in the five-star Glencoe Inn and a £3.5m transformation of Isle of Mull Hotel and Spa last year. It takes the group’s total spend on the portfolio to £10m over the past year.
