Inverness Properties sign with WorldHotels

Best Western GB Press Office: October 2021

A pair of luxury hotels in Inverness have become the latest to sign up to the WorldHotels brand, joining a handful of other luxury hotels throughout Great Britain.

World Hotels celebrates its 50th year this year and the two new hotels, Kingsmill Hotel WorldHotels Elite and Ness Walk Hotel WorldHotels Luxury, both part of the Kingsmills hotel group, join another recent addition to the WorldHotels brand in Scotland, Ten Hill Place Hotel, WorldHotels Distinctive, launched earlier this year. Also becoming live on the WorldHotels systems is celebrity chef Marco Pierre White’s Rudloe Arms hotel in a bumper few months for BWH Hotel Group GB, the global network of independent hotels including Best Western Hotels, WorldHotels and SureStay Hotel Group.

Nestled on the leafy banks of the River Ness, lies Ness Walk. An idyllic 5-star retreat hotel in Inverness, just 10 minutes from Loch Ness. Surrounded by a dramatic canopy of impressive trees, Ness Walk allows guests to experience a secluded atmosphere in the heart of the vibrant city centre. Originally a 19th century house, the lovingly restored Grade B listed building still retains many of its period features. But unified with modern design and architecture, providing a flawless balance between past and present.

The Kingsmills Hotel is a fabulous 4-star luxury hotel in Inverness. Set in the beautiful Scottish Highlands, offering a variety of extremely luxurious rooms, impeccable dining options and good old-fashioned Scottish hospitality to all guests. Complete with spa and conference facilities, it is the perfect retreat for leisure holidays and corporate events, and a world-class destination in its own right.

Mark Stanley Head of Hotel Development & Retention at BWH Hotel Group says “The Inverness properties are perfect examples of BWH Hotel group having brands to suit every hotel and every traveller. Luxury is a huge target market for us in 2022 and 2023. We have been extremely busy over the summer months talking to independent luxury hotel operators who are keen to know more about WorldHotels powered by BWH Hotel Group. Its new, it’s exciting and we will take that traction into next year."

Terii Dunne, Business Development Director at BWH Hotel Group GB said: “We’re delighted that WorldHotels continues to go from strength to strength, especially in Scotland where there are so many fantastic properties and hospitality businesses. The exciting thing for me is the momentum has not stopped, 2022 is going to be a great year for BWH Hotel Group and our hoteliers across all of our brands.”
