One of Perthshire’s most established and best-known hotels is improving its guest experience by investing £400,000 into its dining and entertainment offering.

The Angus Hotel in Blairgowrie will upgrade its Strathmore Suite, currently the venue for their hugely popular tribute show nights, into a beautifully modern breakfast and carvery dining area which will also provide an equally stunning entertainment environment at the weekend.

The owners of the 90-bedroom hotel and leisure club have appointed award-winning Dundee architects and interior designers, Nicoll Russell Studios, to design the refurbished area, taking inspiration for the contemporary and high end feel from leading restaurant operators such as Tom’s Kitchen and Drake & Morgan.  The contract for the building work and interior fit-out has been awarded to Caledonia Contracts who are due to start work onsite in early June, with guests to the Blairgowrie institution having full use of the new area in late September when the works are scheduled to complete.

The new and improved suite, which includes an open kitchen and servery area; new bar and state of the art lighting and sound systems will also host the hotel’s much-loved tribute nights, with 2019 Christmas party guests being some of the first to experience the new facilities.

Murray Scott, owner of The Angus Hotel, commented on the investment: “I am delighted to announce this significant investment in the hotel, it’s proof that we are committed to upgrading our customer experience for everyone. The spectacular design not only offers a better dining experience for our guests, in terms of choice and environment but, additionally, means our weekend tribute entertainment and function space will also be greatly improved.’ “Each year we welcome tens of thousands of guests from all over the world who use Blairgowrie and the hotel as a base to explore Scotland’s magnificent attractions and countryside. Our new and improved facilities will offer yet another reason for visitors to choose to stay at the Angus Hotel for their stay.”
