Newcastle-based Cairn Group has announced the launch of the Cairn Collection; a hand-picked selection of historic hotels in iconic locations across the UK.
The ten-strong collection of signature properties covers all four corners of mainland UK, from Stirling in the Scottish Highlands, to Brighton on the south coast of England.
Hotels have been selected for inclusion within the collection based on a number of criteria, including the historic design and fabric of the buildings themselves; their locations in iconic British towns and cities as well as the service offered by each hotel’s team.
Naveen Handa, director, Cairn Group, said: “We’re delighted to launch The Cairn Collection; a select group of our hotels, all of which blend authentic British character with modern comforts and exciting city centre locations.”
He continued: “For our customers, the collection provides a brand which will give them an assured quality offer across the portfolio, with a strong focus on destination dining, customer service, historical properties and local knowledge.
“The collection also meets a need for soft hotel brands which give the opportunity for owners and operators to affiliate with a major chain whilst allowing individual hotels to retain their unique style.”
Many hotels within the group feature restaurants and bars, such as The Redworth Hall Hotel’s 1744 restaurant, which serves modern British dishes in period surroundings, or the Scholars Restaurant at Stirling Highland Hotel, which uses seasonal, and where possible, locally sourced ingredients from the Highlands to combine British and European cuisines with traditional Scottish flavours.
Three of the key hotels within the group are Stoke Place Hotel, Buckinghamshire, a four-star luxury country house hotel nestled within a 26-acre estate of stunning parkland; the Majestic Hotel, Harrogate, a stately Victorian property in the heart of the beautiful spa town of Harrogate; and The Redworth Hall Hotel, Durham, a 17th century Jacobean Manor House with spa facilities and several meetings and events function rooms.
The ten hotels in The Cairn Collection are: The Majestic Hotel, Harrogate; The Redworth Hall Hotel, Durham; The Old Ship Hotel, Brighton; The Angel Hotel, Cardiff; Stirling Highland Hotel, Stirling; The Royal Station Hotel, Newcastle; Stoke Place Hotel, Buckinghamshire; St Georges Hotel, London; Cairn Hotel Newcastle and Cairn Hotel Edinburgh.
The Cairn Collection is part of the Cairn Hotel Group, a family-owned business headquartered in Newcastle, with 40-years’ experience in the industry.
