Works will be ongoing for approximately six months and we’re anticipating reopening around August / September 2020.
We’re extremely excited about this redevelopment as it will lead to a total revamp and transformation of the venue.
The Redhurst Hotel was built in 1967 by Stakis Hotels and has had various owners throughout the years. It has had very little upgrading during its existence.
The Manorview Hotels & Leisure Group took over the hotel in 2013. It came as a package with the Busby Hotel, as both venues had gone into administration. We have refurbished the Busby Hotel and we’ve also been busy redeveloping Cornhill Castle in Biggar and Bowfield Hotel & Country Club in Howwood.
Now it’s time for the Redhurst to have some much-needed care and attention.
There will be no redundancies for the team who work the Redhurst. They will become part of another Manorview team and will help out at another venue, which they have chosen. They will return to the Redhurst when it reopens.
Lesley Smith, General Manager of the Redhurst Hotel has been part of the venue for over 30 years. She held her 21st birthday party at the venue, and initially worked part-time before she worked her way up to promotion to become General Manager.
Lesley said: “I’ve been here a long time and I’ve seen many different owners. A lot of our team are long-standing employees and we’re all very fond of our venue. We’ve been waiting for this much-needed refurb for a long time. This revamp will make the Redhurst an even greater asset to the local community and we’ll be able to offer so much more.”
