The home of Scotland’s only Seve Ballesteros-designed golf course has joined one of Hilton’s 14 market-leading brands and will be known as DoubleTree by Hilton Glasgow Westerwood Spa & Golf Resort.

North Lanarkshire’s Deputy Provost Tom Castles cuts the ribbon at the unveiling of the newly-named resort with general manager Bill Burnett

At its relaunch, Tom Castles, North Lanarkshire’s Deputy Provost, cut the ribbon to declare the hotel – formerly the Westerwood Hotel & Golf Resort – officially open under its new name. Cllr Castles then joined the hotel’s general manager, Bill Burnett, for a tour of the hotel, which has benefitted from a £1.3m refurbishment as part of the rebrand.

The property joins 50 other hotels within the DoubleTree by Hilton portfolio in the UK, but the only one in Scotland with a golf course attached.

Burnett said: “We’re pleased to officially call the hotel part of the DoubleTree by Hilton family. The brand is globally recognised, and reiterates to guests the exceptional standards of service they should expect when they visit us. It was wonderful to welcome Cllr Castles here to officially open the hotel under its new name, and to have the opportunity to show him around the hotel and introduce the team. We look forward to welcoming guests and offering them best possible experience.”

The DoubleTree by Hilton Glasgow Westerwood Spa & Golf Resort – managed by RBH, the UK’s leading independent hotel management company – boasts a 148-room hotel, a spa, leisure and fitness facilities, two restaurants and an 18-hole course which was co-designed by Seve Ballesteros and Dave Thomas.

The hotel refurbishment included a completely redeveloped wing of bedrooms and the creation of four new luxury suites. In addition, every bedroom received a new luxury Hilton bed, with new bedding and pillows, the latest 50” LG TV, and the inclusion of mini safes and refrigerators.
