Murray's hotel starts business

Andy Murray’s luxury hotel opened on Tuesday, a business the tennis star hopes will boost his Scottish hometown Dunblane.

The Wimbledon champion bought Cromlix House, a Victorian mansion dating from 1874, in February last year and has transformed it into a 15-bedroom, five-star retreat.

The property, set in woodlands three miles outside Dunblane in central Scotland, has undergone extensive refurbishment and tourism officials hope it will prove a big draw for visitors to Scotland.

Murray, 26, envisages the hotel will create up to 40 jobs in Dunblane.

“I’m pleased to be able to give something back to the community I grew up in,” he said on the hotel’s website.

“By re-establishing Cromlix as a leading luxury hotel at the heart of the Dunblane community we will be able to attract new visitors to the area, create a number of new jobs and focus on supporting other local businesses.”
