Dunalastair Hotel Suites
Since Essential Hotels was brought in by the current owners, Dunalastair Hotel Suites has won a multitude of awards, including Best Serviced Accommodation at the Prestige Hotel Awards 2019, Best Hotel Interior at the Best Loved Awards 2018/19 and Boutique Hotel of the Year at the Scottish Hospitality Awards 2018. Essential Hotels has also secured fantastic coverage in top tier publications, including The Telegraph, Conde Nast Johansens, the Daily Mail, Forbes, The Times, Country Life and Harper’s Bazaar.
With our ongoing management agreement, the hotel performance has significantly increased in every metric year on year. Net revenue has increased by 35%, with an aggressive Average Room Rate and Occupancy increase across the board.
This, along with a greatly strengthened P&L and deployment of signature Essential Hotels techniques and efficiency, has resulted in record performance for the hotel owners, and quickly turned this once forgotten part of the Scottish Highlands into a destination within itself. Under Essential Hotels, Dunalastair Hotel Suites now rivals the likes of Gleneagles and Trump Turnbury with Visit Scotland using the property as one of its flagship hotels to showcasing five star Scottish hospitality and service excellence.
