The Busby Hotel in Clarkston has been awarded the title of Wedding Venue of the Year for 2016 at this year’s Scottish wedding industry awards, the VOWS. The Busby Hotel, which is part of the Manorview Hotels & Leisure Group portfolio fought off strong competition from some of Scotland’s most acclaimed wedding venues including sister hotel, the Lynnhurst in Johnstone; Balbirnie House Hotel, Markinch; Rufflets in St Andrews; Western House in Ayrshire and The Balmoral in Edinburgh.
The Award, comes nearly two years after the Busby re-opened after an extensive refurbishment programme, which saw the creation of two modern function suites which cater for both large and intimate weddings. An external balcony at the front of hotel was also built which provides a perfect setting to enjoy a glass of champagne overlooking the River Cart.
Manorview Hotel & Leisure Group, which was established 10 years ago, has already established itself as a leader in the wedding venue market with its expanding portfolio this includes Boclair House Hotel in Bearsden and Cornhill Castle in Biggar.
Juliet Parry, General Manager of Busby Hotel said, “We’re especially proud to win this because nominations come via the happy couples for what is one of the most memorable days of their life. We’re honoured to be part of such an important day and we aim to keep offering the highest quality and to create a unique experience for each bride and groom as they start their married life.”
