WORK is underway on a new £10 million hotel at Hamilton Park Racecourse.
Robertson is main contractor on the project, which will see delivery of the 118-room Hampton by Hilton Hamilton Park. The hotel is being built on land previously used as a car park for racecourse guests.
Planning approval was granted by South Lanarkshire Council last year, with the hotel expected to open to the public next summer.
Vivien Currie, chief executive at Hamilton Park Racecourse said, “We are pleased to be working with Robertson on this landmark project for Hamilton Park which has been driven by both public demand, not only for racedays but also for other events. The venue has seen major growth in its non-raceday business over the last decade and has developed an enviable reputation as one of the leading conference, wedding and events venues in central Scotland.
“One of our main business objectives has been to welcome an event to Hamilton Park on at least every other day of the year, whether that’s a raceday for thousands of visitors, a board meeting or that extra special wedding day.”
