Hotel Golf & Spa by Peebles, the only full service 4-star
hotel in the Scottish Borders has been named Sales Hotel of the
Year within the UK-wide Macdonald Hotels & Resorts
The prestigious award comes after the 99 bedroom hotel
overlooking the picturesque River Tweed achieved its best sales
figures in over a decade. Stuart Maxwell was appointed General
Manager of the hotel only 15 months ago.
Results have included accruing total sales in 2013 of almost £4
million, an increase of 19% over the previous year. A
comparison of sales activity over the 6-month period
April-September also revealed a 21% increase in food sales, across
both dining and wedding functions. Significant investment in the
hotel's 18-hole championship golf course also helped boost golf
sales by over 40% when compared to the same period in 2012.
Stuart commented: "I am very proud to see the hotel named Sales
Hotel of the Year. We've worked hard to drive sales, maximise
occupancy and to maintain the high quality standards expected
within the 2013-2014 AA Hotel Group of the Year. These
results are testament to the hard work and professionalism of all
the team and we remain firmly focused on ensuring Macdonald
Cardrona Hotel Golf & Spa is regarded as one of the country's
leading destinations for leisure breaks, golf, spa, associations
and team building."
Just 23 miles south of Edinburgh, the hotel is increasingly
attracting business within the Borders area and from the north of
England. Guests are able to take advantage of free WiFi,
award-winning dining in the Renwick's Restaurant and
meeting/conference space for up to 240 people.
It is the official accommodation partner of the Tweedlove World
Enduro (24 May-8 June), a major cycling event that this coming
weekend will see many of the world's best riders in action just
minutes from the hotel.
