The team at DoubleTree by Hilton Glasgow Westerwood Spa & Golf Resort has celebrated joining one of Hilton’s 14 market-leading brands.
Tom Castles, North Lanarkshire’s Depute Provost, cut the ribbon to declare the hotel – formerly The Westerwood Hotel & Golf Resort – officially open under its new name.
Councillor Castles joined the hotel’s General Manager, Bill Burnett, for a tour of the hotel which has benefitted from a £1.3m refurbishment as part of its rebrand.
This included a wing of bedrooms being completely redeveloped and the creation of four new luxury suites within the hotel. In addition to this, every bedroom received a brand new luxury Hilton bed with brand new bedding and pillows. TV’s are now the latest 50’’ model from LG, and the inclusion of mini safes and refrigerators completed each bedroom. Coming shortly, Hilton’s new digital lock technology will allow guests the option of checking in and issuing their own room key via their mobile phone.
The property, which is managed by the UK’s leading hotel management company, RBH, joins 47 other hotels within the DoubleTree by Hilton portfolio in the UK.
The four-star hotel overlooking the Campsie hills is home to a stunning 18-hole golf course part-designed by the legendary Seve Ballesteros. Ideally located in rural Glasgow, the hotel is the perfect base to explore Central Scotland and a number of local attractions, including The Kelpies and The Falkirk Wheel.
The 148-guest room resort offers 10 treatment rooms in the area’s largest award-winning Spa, including superior leisure and fitness facilities. Guests also have the choice of two restaurants and bars – Flemings Restaurant & Bar, which offers a hearty breakfast and modern European cuisine for dinner, and The Grill Restaurant, which offers relaxed European cuisine for lunch and dinner.
For meetings and events, the hotel offers space for up to 400 delegates – perfect for any conference, team building weekend or special occasion.
Bill Burnett, General Manager of DoubleTree by Hilton Glasgow Westerwood Spa & Golf Resort, said, “We’re pleased to officially call the hotel part of the DoubleTree by Hilton family. The brand is globally-recognised, and reiterates to guests the exceptional standards of service they should expect when they visit us.
“It was wonderful to welcome Councillor Castles here to officially open the hotel under its new name, and to have the opportunity to show him around the hotel and introduce the team. We look forward to welcoming guests, and offering them best possible experience.”
Councillor Tom Castles, Depute Provost at North Lanarkshire Council, said, “I’m honoured to have been invited to officially mark the unveiling of the newly-named DoubleTree by Hilton Glasgow Westerwood Spa & Golf Resort, and to have the chance to see the investment that has already gone into the property as a result of the rebrand.
“This hotel has been part of the area for a number of years and, now that it is part of the globally-recognised Hilton brand, I am confident it will continue to attract visitors from near and far.”
