Work has begun on a multi-million-pound hotel at Inverness Airport in Scotland, which will see the Courtyard by Marriott brand make its debut in the city.
The new 130-bedroom modular build will be situated within Inverness Airport Business Park, affording quick, easy access to Inverness Airport. It will also boast thoughtfully designed guestrooms, as well as meetings and fitness facilities, a bar and bistro.
Owned and developed by Molo Hotels, the property will be operated by independent hotel management company RBH when it opens its doors later this year.
Contractor Polcom Construction has already begun building the hotel bedrooms at its factory in Gdansk, Poland, before they are transported to the hotel site ready for the final build.
Groundbreaking on the site represents the start of construction on the ground floor of the hotel, which will be built using traditional methods.
Graeme Bell, manager at Inverness Airport, said, “We are delighted to have a world-class brand establishing a new hotel adjacent to the airport and I am certain it will be a real asset to the wider region.
“Inverness Airport continues to grow and is playing an ever-increasing role in improving connectivity in the Highlands. Passengers will soon be able to enjoy the comforts of the Courtyard by Marriot as part of their journey plans.”
Andrew Robb, chief business development officer at RBH, added, “We’ve forged a strong working relationship with Molo Hotels and Polcom Construction over the years, and are thrilled to be working with them on what promises to be another outstanding property.
“We are also pleased to yet again work with Marriott, in particular the Courtyard brand – of which Inverness will be the fourth to join our growing portfolio.
“The start of works on site comes at an exciting time for us, as we kick off a year which will see us undertake more hotel openings than ever before. We look forward to seeing the hotel take shape, and working with Molo Hotels and Marriott to open our doors to guests later this year.”
