AN AWARD-WINNING Aberdeenshire country house hotel has confirmed its attendance at this year’s International Golf Travel Market.

Meldrum House Country Hotel, will have a presence on VisitScotland’s stand (530) from November 12-15 in the Algarve.

The hotel was named Scotland’s best country house hotel by leading tourism trade body Golf Tourism Scotland at its Gold Standard Awards last year.

This year the hotel was awarded four-star gold status by VisitScotland - an honour reserved for accommodation providers that excel in customer care, hospitality and staff development.

Meldrum House also hosted the Northern Open for the third consecutive year and received a hat-trick of accolades at the Scottish hotels awards.

With the official opening of the nearby Trump International Golf Links this summer, 2012 has been a year to remember for the hotel.

Head of operations and development Andy Burgess said: “It has been an incredible 12 months. It started last November with the GTS award which was quickly followed by our four-star gold status from VisitScotland.

“Add to that the increased attention Donald Trump’s new course has brought to the area and confirmation that the Scottish Open will come to Aberdeen in 2014, and you can see the North-east is booming. We certainly hope to finish it in style at IGTM, which should be a fantastic show.”

In recent years, Meldrum House has completed a £2.5 million redevelopment of a wing of contemporary rooms, the opening of a multi-purpose conference facility and the establishment of a green-keeping centre
