Two luxury Scottish hotels, Inverlochy Castle and Greywalls and Chez Roux, have joined Small Luxury Hotels of the World’s (SLH) portfolio of boutique hotels.
The hotel brand said it “handpicked” the country houses based on their “breathtaking” locations, high quality service and “outstanding” food and drink offering. Through this strategic partnership, the properties will have access to SLH’s global reservation platform as well as the brand’s sales, marketing and distribution services.
Nestled in the foothills of Ben Nevis in the Western Highlands, Inverlochy Castle is a 19th Century baronial mansion which has played host to a number of royalty including Queen Victoria and HM Queen Elizabeth. Each of the hotel’s 17 bedrooms and suites features individual designs as well as views of the grounds and private loch.
Set in the East Lothian countryside, Greywalls Hotel and Chez Roux is an Edwardian country house located on the edge of the Muirfield championship golf course. Designed by architect Sir Edwin Lutyens, the property features walled gardens including a tennis court, croquet lawn and passing green, as well as a dedicated whisky room.
Daniel Luddington, vice president of development at SLH, said: “It is a pleasure to welcome the beautiful Inverlochy Castle and Greywalls Hotel as our newest Scottish properties.
“Both hotels exude a timeless sense of tradition and prestige inspired by their unique cultural heritage and unparalleled locations. They align perfectly with our brand values and the independently minded ethos required of the SLH collection”.
