New General Manager for Fonab Castle Hotel & Spa

Fonab Castle Hotel & Spa has appointed Peter Walker as General Manager to drive forward Fonab Castle as one of Scotland’s most loved five-star hotels.

Peter Walker, General Manager, said, “Fonab Castle is a truly unique hotel with an impressive five-star offering.  I am incredibly honoured to step into the role of General Manager and I’m looking forward to working with the team who make this hotel so exceptional.

“I have had the pleasure of working at some of Scotland’s leading hotels but there is something truly special about Fonab Castle, it has been lovingly restored which you can tell as soon as you arrive and with a revitalising spa and a three AA Rosette awarded restaurant, it really has all the ingredients for the perfect luxury getaway.

“I’ll be working closely with Chris, the senior team and my colleagues within the hotel to ensure all guests continue to receive the very best in service and have an unforgettable experience at Fonab Castle.”
