Meldrum House named Scotland’s best country hotel
November 16, 2011

Meldrum House Country Hotel has been named Scotland 's best country house hotel by leading tourism trade body Golf Tourism Scotland. The highly coveted award rounds off an extraordinary season for the Aberdeenshire venue which hosted The Northern Open for the second year running and collected a clutch of plaques at the 2011 Scottish Hotel Awards held earlier this year.

Presented during the glitzy GTS Gold Standard Awards dinner, The Hotel of the Year (country house hotel category) was picked up by Meldrum House's general manager Peter Walker. "It was a great honour to collect the GTS award on behalf of all the staff at Meldrum House who have all worked tirelessly over what has been a fantastic year," he said. "This is what we aim for, and when your hard work is recognised like this, you get a great sense of pride."

This latest honour follows an ambitious re-development plan that has seen £2.5 million spent on a wing of stylish, contemporary rooms and a new, multi-purpose conference facility. Add to that a state-of-the-art green-keeping centre, which was opened last year to the tune of £750,000, and it is clear Meldrum House is going through exciting times.

"The re-development of Meldrum House is a long-term project that has produced significant changes to what was already seen as a premier resort," explained head of operations and development Andy Burgess. "As well as the physical changes, the idea of continued improvement has been adopted by all the staff which means we can push forward and raise standards even further knowing everyone is on board. The results speak for themselves."

On the course, Meldrum's green-keeping staff have been busy rolling out plans to further improve the playing surfaces and conditioning of the 7,010-yard championship course. The work has included rebuilding a number of bunkers and improving drainage across the site . Add to this a world-class practice facility and it's easy to see why Meldrum House is viewed as one of Scotland 's best country house hotels.
