Crerar Hotels has re-opened the Glencoe Inn to guests, showcasing the results of a refurbishment of more than half a million pounds.
Boasting new-look bedrooms, food and drink offerings and outdoor areas, the four-star Inn has been transformed into the ultimate boutique accommodation experience at the heart of the world-famous glen.
On entering the property, guests experience a warm welcome from the hosts into a sumptuous, yet homely feeling lounge featuring log fires.
Exploring the ground floor, residents of the Inn will enjoy exclusive access to the lounges and bar. And with many cosy corners available, those staying can sink into leather sofas by the roaring fires to enjoy books and board games.
From here, guests can venture to the outdoor terrace to enjoy a drink while taking in the stunning views of the loch – or spotting some local wildlife, including deer, who also frequently visit.
All 15 bespoke bedrooms and bathrooms have been fully refurbished creating ultimate comfort for guests. Interiors are inspired by the surrounding rugged landscape, taking in views across Loch Leven or the Pap of Glencoe.
Those looking for something extra special can book into the Loch View Feature Suite, with king its own king-size bed as well as a roll-top bath in the bay window, which allows for uninterrupted views of the loch – perfectly placed to watch a serene sunset after a day of hiking.
As well as a thermal experience with a hot tub and sauna, the outdoor ‘Hidden Garden’ spa offers one of the country’s most awe-inspiring backdrops – for guests’ eyes only.
The Glencoe Inn’s food and drink offering has also been upgraded as part of the six-figure investment, offering guests as well as passing visitors the chance to sample the best of Scottish produce.
The hotel’s much-loved bar and grill, The Gathering, continues to serve Scottish steaks and burgers alongside its famous fish and chip suppers. Alternatively, diners can opt for a dish from the brand-new Steak & Lobster Bistro menu, featuring native grass-fed Scottish beef and venison from the Crerar Home Farm alongside the finest Scottish seafood from the surrounding lochs.
‘Red Shed Pizzas’ will make its much-anticipated debut in summer, bringing a taste of Italy to the West Highlands with authentic, rustic pizzas made with hybrid yeast and sourdough based and served fresh from a brand-new outdoor wood-fired oven, which can be enjoyed within the gardens or for takeaway.
Chris Wayne-Wills, CEO of Crerar Hotels said: “We’re thrilled on two counts – re-opening our doors to welcome guests and showcasing the results of an outstanding refurbishment.
“Despite the challenges of the past year, we have created a home from home experience against the backdrop of one of Scotland’s most famous landscapes – exactly what we were determined to do when the investment was secured.
“The sumptuous interiors have been created with true Scottish hospitality in mind, and the result is the absolute definition of low-key luxury that we’re confident our guests will love. With a food and drink offering serving the best in Scottish produce, an exclusive guest spa experience that allows you to relax whilst enjoying awe-inspiring views, and bedrooms designed with comfort in mind, we’re offering the ultimate Scottish getaway that reflects our world-class location.
“We’re already receiving fantastic feedback from guests and expect to have an exceptionally busy summer when staycationers across the UK get a glimpse of what lies in store.”
