THE REAL Hotel company opens its first branch in Scotland today with the launch of the 103-bedroom purplehotel Glasgow / Airport.
The hotel, just off Junction 26 of the M8 and four miles from Glasgow Airport, will create 25 jobs and marks a significant milestone in the group`s expansion plans.
There are now 11 purplehotels - that`s nearly 1,000 rooms - in the UK, and the group has plans to operate 4,000 rooms by 2012.
New general manager Iain Hamilton said: "purplehotels bring a new dimension to the market place with its no frills chic style providing clients with everything they need and nothing they don`t need.
"We want purplehotels to be fun, informal, an `open shirt` sort of place.
"We have an unstuffy attitude to being genuinely helpful and making people feel welcome. Each hotel has poetry on the wall, cool music to relax with and a `purple fragrance` designed especially for us."
The purplehotel Glasgow / Airport has four meeting rooms suitable for local businesses, meetings on the move or for guests needing space to get a project sorted.
The largest room can accommodate 60 delegates theatre style. All the rooms are fully air conditioned, equipped with 8 hour chairs, cool lighting and a working wall with flip charts, white boards, pull down screen and all the usual yada yada. The entire hotel is Wifi enabled.
