A Glasgow hotel which closed its doors last year for a multi-million pound makeover is preparing to relaunch.
The Redhurst Hotel, owned by leading independent hotel group Manorview Hotels, closed in February 2020 to undergo its biggest ever refurbishment to date to totally transform the property both inside and out, and will re-open on May 12.
The hotel, which was built in 1967 by the Stakis Hotel Group, and has seen a number of owners throughout the years, before being purchased by Manorview Hotel & Leisure Group in 2013.
Manorview officially received a handover from the builders this week and will now be focusing on dressing the venue and rolling out team training prior to opening. The refurbishment was led by Glasgow-based Thomas Johnstone Group and the project management overseen by Nixon Ltd. Manorview worked with Space ID on interior design.
David Tracey, managing director, Manorview Hotels said: ‘After what has been undoubtedly the most challenging year for the hospitality industry we are delighted to be gearing up to officially re-launch the Redhurst Hotel as the hotel industry comes back to life. The Redhurst has been a much loved venue in the heart of the Giffnock community for decades and the new look Redhurst is ready to be reborn!
‘We will be keeping the same relaxed and welcoming ethos which the Redhurst is renowned for but will be providing a much more diverse and contemporary offering to our customers. They can expect a new look restaurant and bar with new all day dining options, a stunning outdoor terrace, a new ballroom and event spaces as well as chic new guest bedrooms and public areas throughout the hotel. We will officially be opening on the 12 May and our team are extremely excited to welcome guests back to the venue.’
The re-opening will create 30 new jobs within the hotel which currently employs 25 across the team, many of whom have been working at the hotel for many years including the Redhurst general manager Lesley Smith who has worked at the hotel more than 30 years.
Customers can book tables in the new Bird & Bell restaurant, bedrooms and make enquiries about weddings at theredhursthotel.co.uk and the events team are also arranging appointments for wedding tours. Customers can keep up to date with details for the reopening on the Redhurst’s official social media channels.
The venue is part of the Manorview Hotels, which formed in 2007 and now comprises eight hotels, two nightclubs, two pubs, a fitness and leisure centre and luxury spa.
