Goodbye 2016....Another busy year for The City of Perth
Firstly, we would like to wish all of our guests a Happy 2017, and we hope to see you all at some point over the course of this new year!
There were many significant events in 2016 that had a big impact on Perth and The Royal George, not least the announcement that Perth will be bidding for the title of UK City of Culture in 2021. This is fantastic news for the City, and we wish to congratulate all involved in the bid to date. During last year we were delighted to be chosen as the conference hotel for the Scottish Green Party in September. We have now welcomed all the major political parties to Perth, and have been delighted to act as the conference hotel for them all, over the last couple of years.
As far as the development of the hotel goes, 2016 was another significant year. The accommodation was greatly enhanced with six bedroom refurbishments completed in The Riverside Wing, meaning this entire wing of the hotel has been fully refurbished over the last three years. 2016 also saw the redecoration and recarpeting of the corridors in both Riverside, the main house nd The Sun Lounge. In February, we introducted of a gym facility for the exclusive usage of our overnight guests, allowing our guests the ability to work out whislt away from home, free of charge. The Residents Games room was also opened this year featuring a free play pool table and table football, which proved to be a big hit with many of the children who attended weddings during the year!
In March, following an upgrade to BT Business Infinity Fibre Optic Wireless Broadband both our residents and business users benefitted from the added advantage of download speeds of circa 80mbps and upload rates of circa 20mbps. This is the fastest available service in the area. Many Happy browsers!
Finally, exciting news for early 2017, as this will see the opening of Beauty Benefits by Amanda based in the hotel, offering both residents and non residents a variety of treatments including Facial and Body Waxing, Gelin Nails, Hopi Ear Candling, a selection of Massages, Facials and Reflexology. Amanda has over a decade of experience as a beauty therapist, graduating with a Higher National Diploma in Beauty Therapy in 2007. For further information or booking, please contact reception on 01738 624455. Available from mid January.
All in all, 2016 was another busy year for all at The Royal George, thank you for your custom, we hope to see you soon in 2017!
