Largs hotel re-opens with some wow-factor touches

Brisbane caledonian suite

BRISBANE House in Largs has opened with a brand-new look that includes some wow-factor areas and special touches. The unveil follows an extensive refurbishment that was completed over winter. Owners Manorview invested heavily in the seaside property, which will welcome guests for hotel breaks, celebrations, events, and weddings.

 All areas of the boutique hotel have been refurbished, but the extra special touches include a stunning wow-factor duplex honeymoon suite with private balcony, a dedicated wedding prep room, and an upgraded glass-front function suite with doors that slide open to an extended terrace – all boasting panoramic views of the Clyde.  The 17 guest bedrooms throughout the property have been refurbished to create modern and relaxing spaces that are perfect for a short break to the seaside. Guests staying will also enjoy a delicious breakfast and seaside views, all within a short walk of the bars, cafes and restaurants Largs has to offer. An exciting new edition is The Caledonian Suite, an impressive two floor suite with luxurious finishes and a stunning outlook. The suite, which includes a spa bath, private bar with complimentary cocktails and steam room shower, opens out to an exclusive-use balcony that overlooks Largs bay and the Clyde. In addition to being included in all wedding packages, the suite will be available to book up to 3 months in advance for special occasions. Locals celebrating milestones of every kind will be able to host events in the hotel’s Brisbane Suite, which has also been upgraded. The space has beautiful new lighting and décor that’s suitable for any occasion, and to make the most of the spectacular setting, the terrace to the front has been extended, and the glass front changed to large sliding doors so that it can open to the outside.  David Tracey, Managing Director at Manorview, said: “Largs has such stunning scenery, and Brisbane House has a great location on the front. We took every possible opportunity during the refurb to make the most of those views – as we know our guests will absolutely love it too!” Last year, Manorview confirmed that couples who book weddings at Brisbane House will now get full run of the venue, as it will be exclusive use on their wedding day. But new guest rooms, a brand-new honeymoon suite and upgraded function suite aren’t the only new things couples will enjoy!  The former restaurant in the hotel building has been turned into The Cochrane Suite  – a dedicated drinks reception space for weddings. With a bar, outdoor terrace with gorgeous views, and mixed seating, the space is perfect for couples to mingle and greet guests immediately after their vows. The room will also be used for the newlyweds and their guests to enjoy breakfast the morning after their wedding. The Wallace Suite is also brand new. With an en-suite shower room, sofa, smart tv, bar area and three dedicated dressing tables with large mirrors, the suite has been designed especially as a wedding prep room. Hair, makeup, dressing and celebrating can all take place in that suite on the morning of the wedding! The room has gorgeous natural light with two large windows overlooking the Clyde and is sure to be a hit with brides to be. Outside, locals using the Brisbane for celebrations, hotel guests and wedding guests will all enjoy a larger terrace and a newly landscaped front garden – featuring wooden pergolas and lined with palm trees, all looking on to the Clyde. Susan Spence, Group Wedding & Events Manager at Manorview, said: “We are so excited to finally unveil the upgrades to our existing couples, and those who come to view the venue. A great amount of detail and effort has gone into creating a space that works for every aspect of the day – from wedding prep to ceremony, drinks, meal and reception. Brisbane House is a fantastic choice for those looking for a waterside wedding, and we can’t wait to host special days here.” The entire Brisbane House building has been upgraded throughout the renovations, unveiling a new look for the Largs hotel.  Mr Tracey commented: “We can’t wait for guests from near and far to come and see the new space for themselves. We are proud to be a part of the Largs tourism landscape, and alongside our neighbouring businesses, remain committed to showcasing what a great place Largs is to both live in and visit.”  The team at Brisbane House enjoyed an extended rest or worked at another Manorview property during the renovations. The team are now back in the venue, and are looking for teammates too. Those interested can find out more about careers and job openings on the venue’s website. In January this year, the Brisbane team alongside colleagues from other venues were treated to an all-expenses-paid party at The Arches in Glasgow, and those who’d been in the team for 12+ months also received a share of £273,000 of profit that Manorview set aside for the team.
