Queensferry Hotels has invested £1.4m in the renovation and expansion of its two four-star properties in Edinburgh and Fife. The Bruntsfield Hotel renovation is ongoing but the work at Keavil  House Hotel in Dunfermline has just been completed.

Keavil House Hotel now  has a new bespoke 95 square-meter restaurant, bar and terrace extension. called The Botanist restaurant, which opened last month. It seats 60, and offers a menu of modern British cuisine made using produce sourced from across Scotland.

The Bruntsfield Hotel in Edinburgh will see four extra rooms created, raising the total number of guest rooms to 70 and enabling the hotel to welcome up to 144 guests from May.

The foyer of the Bruntsfield is also undergoing a complete redesign to ensure that the whole hotel is finished to a high standard, and two of the hotel’s smaller guest rooms will each be remodelled to feature a range of high design, contemporary amenities, including a walk-in shower room and a large multimedia TV. Additionally, the hotel has installed a new lift, redesigned its banqueting and events space, renovated its guest corridors and upgraded both the guest WiFi and administration IT networks.

Russell Imrie, managing director of Queensferry Hotels, said, “This investment in our estate will allow us to not only retain our current customer base, but also future-proof our properties in an increasingly crowded hospitality market.

The invetment was facilitated by Bank of Scotland.  Paul McWilliams, relationship director at the Bank of Scotland, commented: “We’ve had a strong relationship with Queensferry Hotels for more than 20 years, and have supported its growth through a number of development projects.

“The hospitality industry is fast-paced, and highly competitive. Being able to help local businesses such as Queensferry Hotels get ahead of the market is central to their continued success, and a big part of our commitment to helping Britain prosper.”
