AVIEMORE, Scotland - Hilton Coylumbridge today announced completion of a £1.1 million refurbishment and upgrade programme to its Grant Restaurant. Guests will now be able to enjoy the completely re-designed Inverdruie Restaurant, which replaces the former space in the Highland property.

The new restaurant, which serves classic British and European dishes, also features a stunningly redesigned glass frontage, perfect for taking in the sights of the beautiful Aviemore countryside.

Head chef, Frank Morrissey has taken the opportunity to refresh the restaurant menu, focusing on family favourites to accommodate the many parents and children who choose to holiday at the popular resort, located at the heart of the Cairngorms National Park.

Sandy Phillips, director at Cunningham McLean, the interior design company commissioned with the refurbishment, said, "This is an exciting project that allowed for considerable design scope and integrated elements of the natural environment all around the hotel. The result is bright and informal with an original take on the traditional highland theme."

The 320-cover restaurant has been fully re-modelled including the installation of new fixtures and fittings, fresh décor and a brand new look and feel to the space, which is used for breakfast, lunches and dinner.

Iain Miller, general manager of Hilton Coylumbridge, said,  "We're delighted to be able to announce the completion of this eight week programme of further investment in our property, which has been completed during the peak of the Scottish ski season.   We're confident this new offering will prove very popular with our guests as we continue to provide the very best quality and service to the families and individuals who visit Aviemore every year."

The investment follows the recent installation of a brand new £210k gym.  Open to hotel and lodge guests, the new gym combines the very best in state-of-the-art exercise equipment, complete with entertainment screens. The gym has been installed to offer a 21st century interactive experience for guests at Hilton Coylumbridge optimising their workout programs.  

Naomi McMinn, health club manager, said, "This investment at Hilton Coylumbridge with the installation of a brand new gym, enables us to provide a unique facility that will exceed our guests' expectations. In addition, our 12-metre family pool, sauna, hydrotherapy pool, and spa and beauty salon provide a range of upscale leisure facilities for those guests who wish to relax or stay active whilst on holiday."
