Exclusive Scottish venue Mar Hall Golf and Spa Resort joins Venue of Excellence


Venues of Excellence, the UK’s leading consortium for independent venues, is proud to announce that 5-star exclusive Scottish venue Mar Hall Hotel, Golf & Spa Resort has joined its collection of outstanding conference and events venues, adding another fantastic independent Scottish venue to its membership.

Prepare to be impressed by the exclusive Scottish venue Mar Hall Golf and Spa Resort

A leading resort in Scotland overlooking the River Clyde and set in a tranquil 240 acres woodland estate, Mar Hall is an ideal location for residential conferences, events, product launches, reception dinners and private events which call for a touch of grandeur. Located just 10 minutes away from Glasgow International Airport and with great transport connections, Mar Hall is easily accessible for delegates from across the UK and abroad.

Mar Hall never fails to impress with a range of meeting rooms for more intimate events, in addition to a marquee overlooking the rolling Old-Kilpatrick hills which can cater for up to 300 delegates, as well as neighbouring Morton House with ample space for up to 170 guests.

Extensive activities available for corporate retreats and team building

The extensive leisure pursuits available at the resort allow delegates to relax and unwind at the end of the working day. Guests can opt for a spa treatment, use of the new open-plan multi-functional PRIMAL gym, take a dip in the new meticulously designed 20-metre swimming pool or head out for a round of golf on the championship Earl of Mar Par 70 golf course.

Mar Hall’s Head Concierge, Alan McDougall, is also on hand to offer guests an experience like no other. From a family-friendly falconry session on the lawn to an off-road 4×4 adventure tour of the Old-Kilpatrick hills or corporate teambuilding challenges, Alan can curate an itinerary to suit every need.

Mar Hall Hotel, Golf & Spa Resort was recently purchased by Dutco Group, supported by Align Partners, who are investing over £15M across the estate to enhance the facilities on offer to guests for both business and leisure.

On Mar Hall joining Venues of Excellence, Mandy Jennings, CEO said: “We are so excited to welcome Mar Hall into our wonderful family of excellent venues and expand our portfolio in Scotland. With the multi-million pound investment going into the property, we are delighted to support them on their journey of excellence and look forward to sharing information on this fantastic venue with our loyal customers and agency partners.  Mar Hall has welcomed many celebrities through their doors, and is perfect for a prestigious board meeting, inspirational conference, management away day or exclusive hire event.  We look forward to working closely with Joe and his team.”

Joe Gallacher, General Manager at Mar Hall Hotel, Golf & Spa Resort on joining the consortium said: “We chose to join Venues of Excellence as we see it as a fantastic opportunity for us, as an independent hotel, to elevate its status and reputation in the hospitality industry. As a member of this prestige organisation our hotel will benefit from access to unique and outstanding customer service training programmes that will support us providing the highest quality service to our guests.

“We also share some of the core values which is extremely important to us as we move forward. By joining Venues of Excellence, our hotel will also have the opportunity to network with other top-tier properties to learn and share best practise but also best fit, which will further enhance our reputation.

“This commitment to excellence and continuous improvement sets Venues of Excellence apart from other organisations in the industry and will ultimately help us stand out from the competition.”
