The Redhurst Hotel in Giffnock, owned by Manorview, has just reopened after a complete refurbishment which saw the hotel stripped right back and brought bang up to date with a contemporary new look.
The hotel, which was built in 1967 by the Stakis Hotel Group, was bought by Manorview in 2013 and at the time it received a cosmetic upgrade, but this new revamp has included an entire refit of the establishment.
Manorview collaborated with Space ID on the interior design with Glasgow-based Thomas Johnstone leading the refurbishment and Nixon project managing.
Managing Director of Manorview David Tracey explains, “The builders took it back to brick and left us with a shell of a building. Nothing has remained untouched, although we have not changed the layout too much.
“As a company we like to take on rather tired hotels which have been under invested in, and bring them back to their former glory. This is exactly what we have done here – our aim was to give the local community a great bar and restaurant space to use.”
Says David, “The Redhurst has this special place in the heart of the Giffnock community. In fact many people in the southside of Glasgow remember it fondly. We have kept the same relaxed and welcoming ethos which the Redhurst is renowned for but we now provide a more diverse and contemporary offering.”
The hotel now has a new look restaurant and bar, Bird & Bell, which offer new all day dining options, a stunning outdoor terrace, which runs the length of the hotel, a new ballroom and event spaces as well as 17 chic new guest bedrooms and public areas throughout the hotel.
David concludes, “We all feel very privileged to be able to open a new hotel at this time. Our General Manager Lesley Smith is particularly delighted as she has been here 30 years and over the eight years we had the hotel, prior to refubishing, we kept promising her we would do it.”
Steve Graham, founder of Manorview Hotels adds,“After a year of closures and uncertainty it feels good to be breathing life into our venues again.”
