Radisson Hotel Group launches Radisson Blu Hotel, Perth, the Scottish city on the river Tay known as the “Gateway to the Highlands” of Scotland.
The new hotel occupies a landmark property that first opened in 1890 as one of the original British railway hotels, and is a Grade II listed building, featuring beautiful architecture and grand staircases. Settled since prehistoric times and formerly known as the “capital” of Scotland, Perth is now a popular destination for domestic and international travellers.
Radisson Blu Hotel Perth features 75 guest rooms and suites, a restaurant, lobby bar, garden bar, fitness gym, treatment rooms, as well as two ballrooms, including the largest outside Edinburgh, and five large meeting and conference rooms.
The hotel’s restaurant, Victoria, will be a social meeting place offering a spin on classic British dishes served with organic wines. The grill menu celebrates the land and sea through fire, foraging, and the cultivated fields brought to life by way of seasonally inspired classics that promote sustainable, fresh, organic, and local ingredients.
Visitors can enjoy time in the city’s many attractions such as museums, theatres, churches, whisky distilleries, breweries or on one of the numerous golf courses located in and around the two main parks of the city, North Inch and South Inch. The surrounding Perthshire countryside allow guests to enjoy outdoor and adventure sports.
The addition of such a historic landmark property to our Radisson Blu portfolio in the UK is a great achievement. Radisson Blu Hotel, Perth is the seventh property to join our Scottish portfolio, with other hotels located in Edinburgh, Glasgow, Aberdeen, and Inverness.
