Oxford Hotels secures its place in Scotland’s rich heritage

Oxford Hotels & Inns is officially Scotland’s largest hotel operator, according to research by national tourism organisation, Visit Scotland.

Visit Scotland’s research, which looked at geographic location and venue offering, identified Oxford Hotel & Inns as the largest provider outside the budget sector - taking third place behind Travelodge and Premier Inn for overall presence in the Scottish market.

The popular hotel group, which has 24 hotels in Scotland and 40 in total across the UK, is a major contributor to the leisure industry and local economy in the areas in which it is based.

Many of the group’s flagship hotels sit within its Scottish portfolio, such as the four star Carnoustie Golf Hotel (venue to the 128th British Open); the historic Argyll landmark, Stonefield Castle and Craigellachie Hotel, which is nestled in the heart of over 52 malt whisky distilleries.

Each of Oxford Hotels & Inns Scottish venues were chosen by the chain for their location and ability to champion all the things that makes Scotland a great place to visit, such as its world famous distilleries, breathtaking countryside and premier golf courses.

Commenting on the findings Colin Houston, Visit Scotland’s Quality Manager said: “Oxford Hotels & Inns presence in the Scottish market is extremely strong, underlining its commitment to building its brand and a commitment to the growth of Scottish tourism.

“In the current economic climate it is crucial the industry works together to benefit tourism and I am therefore delighted we work alongside hotel chains like Oxford Hotel & Inns, which have an exceptional guest offering and also promote the unique experience a visit to the country can offer.”

Mark Edwards, Oxford Hotels & Inns Managing Director, adds: “All the hotels in our portfolio have their own individual identity. Whether it be an historic castle deep in the Scottish countryside or a hotel situated in the heart of a working fishing village, each has a unique attraction. We will continue to promote these things because - along with our excellent facilities and service - they are what allows our guests to enjoy a stay they’ll never forget and a reason for them to return time and time again.”
