The 30-bedroom Hetland Hall hotel in Carrutherstown, Dumfries & Galloway, is to undergo a £2m refurbishment and expansion after being acquired by the RAD Hotel Group.
Work has already begun on the redecoration of the function rooms, while a planning application to remodel and increase the number of bedrooms, alongside doubling the size of the restaurant and kitchen, has been submitted to Dumfries & Galloway Council. A "fresh contemporary frontage" is also planned and all windows in the hotel are set to be replaced.
The RAD Hotel Group bought Hetland hall, set within 18 acres of grounds, from Lady Glen Hotels in November 2016.
A spokesperson for the RAD Hotel Group said the improvements will help the business "to develop the business to become a destination hotel for weddings and events, corporate business, leisure stays and increase the restaurant footfall for lunches, dinners, afternoon teas and private dining."
Owned by Robert and Vivien Kyle, the RAD Hotel Group owns four hotels alongside Hetland Hall. They include the Royal hotel, Cumnock, East Ayshire; the Carlton Hotel , Prestwick, South Ayrshire; the Radstone hotel, Larkhall, Lanarkshire; and the Lochside House Hotel and Spa, near New Cumnock, East Ayrshire.
