, the couple behind the RAD Hotel Group who specialise in operating and running wedding venues and restaurants in and around the West Coast of Scotland, have purchased The Brig o’ Doon House Hotel, in Alloway. This is the seventh property to come under their family business portfolio which includes the Lochside House Hotel, Spa and Lodges, Carlton Hotel Prestwick and the Hetland Hall Hotel, Dumfries.
“It is a real privilege to take over from Bill and Cathy Costley,” said Mr and Mrs Kyle. “Both of our businesses pride themselves on having strong family values and we hope this will ease the transition of ownership and protect the reputation and legacy of this beautiful hotel.
“Like with all our hotels, we are passionate about ensuring guest experience is top priority and this will be no different with The Brig o’ Doon. We have a wealth of experience and will be concentrating firstly on meeting all wedding couples and satisfying guests requirements as we go through the transition of acquiring such a remarkable venue.
“Investment and transitions to the venue will be done in keeping with the very essence and history of the hotel. We will also be supportive of the existing team during this transition and will announce further operational plans soon.
“We were recently reminded by a local piper – who at the age of 82 has visited many venues – that this type of opportunity only comes along once in a lifetime, so we couldn’t be more delighted that we are involved in this piece of Ayrshire history!
“We would like to take this opportunity to thank our amazing team at RAD for their support over the last few years. Without them we would not be where we are and for this, we say a huge Thank You!”
