Manorview Group acquires the Bothwell Bridge hotel

Scottish boutique hotel company Manorview Group has acquired the 90-bedroom Bothwell Bridge hotel in Bothwell, South Lanarkshire, for an undisclosed sum.

The sale of the 19th century property, formerly known as the Clyde hotel, brings to an end the hotel's 42-year ownership by the Martalo family.

The deal has increased Manorview Group's portfolio to 11 hotels and its total bedroom capacity by 50%.

The hotel will remain open while undergoing future improvements.

Steve Graham, founder and director of Manorview said that the hotel has "fantastic character and quality" which offers , potential for the future.

He added: "While our initial focus will be on getting to know the business better, looking after customers, and supporting the existing team, we fully intend to invest heavily in the interior and exterior of the venue in the coming years.

"This is something we've done on varying levels with every venue we've acquired since our inception in 2006. Breathing fresh life into historic buildings is something we're very passionate about."

Like all employees working for Manorview Group, staff at Bothwell Bridge will receive the Living Wage, while team members who have worked at the hotel for more than 12 months will benefit from a profit share scheme in which they will enjoy a share of 10% of the company's net profits.

Armando Cirignaco, former general manager of Bothwell Bridge hotel, said: "The Martalo family is proud to have served the Bothwell community for more than four decades and, as we pass the reins to Manorview, we know we are leaving the business we have built in excellent hands with another family firm."
