Thread: Andy Murray's Cromlix House Hotel near Dunblane

  1. #1

    Andy Murray's Cromlix House Hotel near Dunblane

    It seems confirmed that Andy won the bid to buy this luxury hotel near his home town of Dunblane.

    The Daily Record has a report here.
    A couple of extracts:-

    Set in 35 acres, Cromlix House – where Andy’s older brother Jamie married his Colombian girlfriend Alejandra Gutierrez – has eight luxury suites, three dining rooms and meeting rooms.

    The star’s adviser, Neil Grainger, said: “As soon as all the contracts that have been agreed are in place, including the company who will be managing the property, Mr Murray’s management company will be making a full announcement. “I hope it would be within the next month.”

    Andy, who begins his bid to win the first major of the year in Brisbane, Australia, this week, fought off two other bidders to land the property. His beaten rivals were rumoured to include legendary chefs the Roux brothers.

    Andy’s agreement to buy the sprawling Victorian mansion was conditional on the licence and final legal papers are expected to be signed within 30 days. The seven-day-a-week premise licence in the name of Cromlix House Hotel was applied for on December 18 and there is a deadline of no later than January 14 to object.

    Judy, along with Andy’s accountant, are directors of Cromlix House Hotel Limited. All the shares are owned by Parched Investments Limited, a company set up to handle the star’s blossoming wealth.

    And I bet you they knew quite a few of the staff who worked there as it was local.

    If a licence has been applied for then it sounds like they plan to keep it running as a hotel, at least initially - think someone suggested they might want it as a base for the purported Murray Academy?? Judy will want to personally interview the pastry chefs to make sure they are up to her high standards!

    Of course he'll have bought it in order to put us all up when we go to Davis Cup

    They have 36 acres - enough space for some tents
