Hotel in Aberfoyle

By the end of this month, the four-star Macdonald Forest Hills Hotel & Spa, part of Macdonald Hotels & Resorts and just west of Aberfoyle in the Loch Lomond & Trossachs National Park will complete a significant £1 million bedroom transformation.  

This latest investment comes at an extremely exciting time for the hotel that, in the last two years has benefitted from a brand new spa, has recently unveiled a new external facade and is now aiming to achieve a second AA rosette for their dining.  It will see 20 existing rooms transformed to offer guests 17 new and larger bedrooms, including two stunning suites and two feature rooms with views over serene Loch Ard and to Ben Lomond beyond.  The investment comes as part of a wider strategy for the hotel to strive towards a four-red star AA rating. 

Morag Stark, the recently appointed Resort General Manager of Macdonald Forest Hills Hotel & Spa, commented: "This significant investment in our bedrooms further underlines our commitment to continually offer guests the highest standards of product and service and we're delighted to be receiving a share of the £5 million investment fund that Macdonald Hotels has put aside in 2013 and to support our ambition of achieving four-red stars.

"These stylish bedroom refurbishments will ensure our guests enjoy the highest levels of comfort and luxury while also being rewarded with the opportunity to dine on the finest freshest cuisine in our Garden Restaurant and feast on a truly breathtaking backdrop of the Loch Lomond & The Trossachs National Park."

Interior designer, Corrinne Muir at Guardian Soft Furnishings in Stirling and overseeing the restyle of the new bedrooms offered an insight to the inspiration behind the designs: "We have gone down a contemporary Scottish theme with the interiors, incorporating heathery tartans and thistle embossed curtains in keeping with the hotels surroundings. 

"We have also used an eclectic mix of fabrics from soft wools to plush velvets and rich leathers.  We believe the choice of fabrics and colours make these rooms feel like a home away from home for guests."

Nestled in the southernmost Scottish highlands and within easy reach of both Glasgow and Edinburgh Macdonald Forest Hills Hotel & Spa offers a truly idyllic escape for a leisure break, an idyllic location for a team away day or used exclusively as a wedding venue.  

Moreover, Macdonald Forest Hills Hotel & Spa has its own adventure activity centre whilst the luxurious on site Vital Health & Wellbeing Club & Spa is the perfect place to relax and rejuvenate.  And wherever guests dine; in the restaurant, lounge, bedroom or conference suite, there's the group-wide promise of always serving the same finest freshest produce and ingredients.
