One of Scotland’s most decorated golf hotels will be taking part in the International Golf Travel Market, which will be held from November 11-14, in Spain.

The Meldrum House Country Hotel & Golf Course, which has enjoyed a record-breaking year, will be exhibiting throughout the show on VisitScotland’s stand (C520) in Catalunya.

Confirmation of the hotel’s attendance follows what representatives describe as an “exceptional 12 months” at the Aberdeenshire resort.

It began in April when Meldrum House was awarded Golf Hotel of the Year and Event Hotel of the Year at the 10th annual Scottish Hotel Awards in Glasgow.

During the ceremony, the venue’s manager, Peter Walker, also received the Rising Star of the Year title.

Later, Meldrum House was named the Best Hotel in the North East and Tayside at the Scottish Thistle Awards – an award that automatically earned its place at the national finals next month.

That, along with being nominated as the UK’s Best Small Hotel at the prestigious International Hotel Awards; the winners of which will also be announced in November, has meant 2013 could be a momentous year for the hotel.

Meldrum House has also experienced a massive boost to the golf side of the business with year-on-year bookings at its 18-hole championship course up by 400 per cent.
