Robertson delivered a two-phase project at Kingsmills, a luxury hotel in Inverness.

We delivered The Kingsclub, a stand-alone building that comprises 378 new luxury rooms, a spa and a breakfast area. We were proactively involved with the client and design team in terms of design, costs, buildability and programme. A high-quality project was completed, and the new facility has been a huge success for the Kingsmills Hotel; it is regularly used by premier-league football teams, and by professional and recreational golfers playing at nearby Castle Stuart.

“Over the last 18 months, the company has invested heavily within the existing hotel, and the results have been fantastic. The addition of the Kingsclub will be the icing on the cake.”

Craig Ewan, GM, Kingsmills Hotel

Following the success of the Kingsclub project, we negotiated the additional £4.2m extension at the Kingsmills Hotel to create a new function suite on the ground floor, with a further 38 new bedrooms on two floors above. An existing wing was demolished as part of an enabling contract, with the new facility built over much of the existing footprint.

As the new extension was linked to the existing, operational hotel, we worked very closely with the hotel owners and staff to negotiate working hours, deliveries and working practices in order to minimise disruption. The new function suite and associated bedrooms have been another success for the Kingsmills Hotel, which we were delighted to deliver.

The Kingsclub will add a new dimension to the hotel, offering the guest the choice of traditional rooms within the hotel, or a more contemporary offering within the Kingsclub; a hotel within a hotel. Over the last 18 months, the company has invested heavily within the existing hotel, and the results have been fantastic. The addition of the Kingsclub will be the icing on the cake.

– Craig Ewan, General Manager
