DÜSSELDORF / ROXBURGHE
– Hyatt Hotels Corporation today announced the debut of the Destination by Hyatt brand in the United Kingdom with SCHLOSS Roxburghe. The historic estate has recently gone through an extensive transformation, including the addition of a state-of-the-art spa, 58 new rooms and suites in the newly constructed extension The Estate House, and 12 classically designed Scottish luxury cottages.
Following the continued expansion of Hyatt’s luxury brands across Europe, the opening of SCHLOSS Roxburghe represents a significant growth milestone for the Destination by Hyatt portfolio in Europe as it joins 7Pines Resort Ibiza and 7Pines Resort Sardinia.
“SCHLOSS Roxburghe is a property of distinction that is now fully transformed into a luxurious and historic retreat,” said Jörg Lindner, founder and managing partner at 12.18. Group. “We are proud to realize this exciting project with Hyatt and add such an incredible property to the diverse collection of luxury and upscale independent hotels, resorts and residences within the Destination by Hyatt portfolio.”
“As the first Hyatt hotel to open its doors in Scotland and the 14th property in the UK, this immersive country retreat reflects the growing demand from World of Hyatt members and guests for discovery-filled experiences in some of Britain’s most sought-after locations,” said Arnaud de Saint-Exupery, area vice president of Hyatt in the United Kingdom and Ireland. “We are delighted by the introduction of this Destination by Hyatt property to our diverse and fast-growing UK portfolio.”
Stylish, tranquil accommodations
Just a few miles from the scenic market town of Kelso, and an hour from Edinburgh and Newcastle, SCHLOSS Roxburghe raises the bar on luxury for travelers seeking a tranquil, rural escape in Scotland. In keeping with the brand’s ambition to build a distinct portfolio of luxury properties that connect guests with people, cultures and places, the property capitalizes on the growing demand from travelers seeking to escape their daily routine in style. The extensive range of amenities across SCHLOSS Roxburghe’s 300 acres of scenic countryside gives guests a true sense of place.
Formerly owned by the Duke of Roxburghe, the elegant countryside retreat offers a total of 78 rooms and suites as well as 12 two-bedroom cottages, 20 guestrooms and suites within the historic manor house and 58 guestrooms within The Estate House. Looking ahead, the property is set to introduce 50 additional cottages, planned to be available to guests starting in 2023.
Located in the beautiful woodlands on the SCHLOSS Roxburghe estate, surrounded by wildlife and right next to the Golf Course, each of the 12 cottages benefits from having additional living space, fitted kitchens and furnished garden terraces. These additional amenities allow guests the added flexibility to appreciate and take advantage of the hotel’s services while having the option to enjoy an intimate dining experience provided by the property or themselves in the privacy within their own home-away-from-home.
Featuring striking high ceilings and decorated with a combination of Scottish tartans, the 20 guestrooms and suites located inside and adjacent to the historic main house feature oak wood, natural stone, and sumptuous textiles. These beautifully furnished rooms are each unique in character and highlight the eternal beauty and history of the time-honored building.
Extravagant fittings and fixtures such as four-poster beds and private balconies can be found within The Estate House too. Offering some of the finest views of the estate, these 58 additional guestrooms are spacious and flooded with light, providing stylish, yet modern comfort in the most enchanting of settings.
Guests in all accommodation categories are able to take full advantage of the wealth of facilities across the stately grounds.
