“Stunning design meant 65% occupancy rate before completion”

On a small Scottish Island sits a thriving hotel, with a Michelin star restaurant, luxury spa, breath-taking views and the best of Scottish hospitality.  But for owners Beppo Buchannan and his Wife Seona, they envisaged something more for their guests on The Isle of Eriska.

Recognising the desire for people to have more choice about their business and leisure experience and seeing a clear trend in people wishing to have more space and privacy but with access to onsite hotel facilities, Seona and Beppo approached Mozolowski & Murray to design and build what has become the stunning and exclusive “Hilltop Reserves.”

The first two reserves were so successful, with over 65% occupancy rates within the first two years, including 30 timeshare weeks at £10,000 per week, Mozolowski & Murray are scheduled to complete phase 2, consisting of 4 further reserves.

On talking about the immediate success of phase one of the reserves, Beppo said:

“It was essential that on deciding to expand Eriska with two one bedroomed luxury standalone self-catering suites, designed to accommodate the desire for luxury escapism but with access to 5 star facilities, we employed a company who understood our objectives and could reflect the high standards of our existing business. So, M&M were the obvious choice.”

Mozolowski & Murray turns a breathtaking location into a luxury experience

Bourne out of the desire to offer guests a uniquely luxurious escape, with total privacy and breathtaking views but with the option to indulge in the resident hotels 5 star facilities, The Hilltop Reserves had to incorporate the best of everything.  From design, features and materials to quality of workmanship and overall finish, the reserves became an instant success.

With a scheduled 8-week completion timeframe and with many clients signing up to one week a year from simply seeing Mozolowski & Murray’s stunning 3D designs, it was imperative that the project went smoothly and delivered the highest quality, as had become eagerly anticipated by a growing order book.

Commenting on his experience of the industry leading conservatory company, Beppo Buchannan, Managing Director of The Isle of Eriska Hotel said:

“For us, the fact that M&M offered a complete turn-key solution was a key factor in deciding to go ahead with this project. They took care of everything from designs, planning consents and scheduling to quality standards, building control and ensuring our existing business was unaffected by the work that was taking place on the Island.

“The fact that we have asked them to build us another four is testament in itself, however, it is worth saying that the knowledge, experience and professionalism, not to mention total reliability of the Mozolowski & Murray team was first class.”

The Hilltop Reserves has elevated The Isle of Eriska Hotel to a 5-star exclusive self-catering experience that offers its clients a unique choice of a secluded sanctuary with all the on-site frills or a place to escape in luxurious comfort and style, with only a breath-taking view for company.

How was your experience overall:

“There’s no two ways about it. Mozolowski & Murray are by far the best in the business. We are now working with them on the second phase of the project with four more reserves and again, they haven’t missed a beat. Scheduling, materials, build, installation, professionalism, knowledge, commitment and quality. Wouldn’t work with anyone else.”
