Marmalade Hotel, on the Isle of Skye, will be closing in October 2019 to undergo major renovations, which will see 23 new luxury guestrooms added to the existing 11, plus new relaxation facilities.
In addition to the new guest rooms, the extension will also include a new reception space and entrance, a redesigned lobby, a relaxation room and more parking areas.
Every aspect of Marmalade’s current 11 bedrooms has been inspired by the surroundings, specifically designed to create a comfortable place for guests to unwind and relax. From the natural colour palettes to the blackout curtains, guests are guaranteed to leave feeling revitalised and re-charged by the Marmalade.
Each bedroom features incredibly picturesque views of the harbour town and the panoramic surrounding countryside. The additional rooms will be housed in a new extension, constructed over three floors, with predominantly south facing rooms with mesmerising views across the bay to the Cuillins mountains range. The extension will be “contemporary meets classical”; clad in dark, contrasting materials and sitting lower in the landscape, visually complementing the historic white house that is Marmalade.
The contemporary appearance of the extension utilises a limited palette of natural materials, including timber, slate, corrugated metal and natural stone, all with intricate detailing. These materials are inherent to the rural environment and atmosphere of Skye and compliment the aesthetic of the existing building.
General Manager, Graham Kelly, said:
“Marmalade has always been a landmark property in the Scottish Highlands – we have many loyal guests who have been coming to the hotel for years. We are thrilled to be able to offer more to the guests in the next year”.
Marmalade’s restaurant, Chargrill, which specialises in authentic Scottish grilled meat and fresh seafood will be closed throughout the renovations. Marmalade is scheduled to reopen in April 2020 in time to welcome in another season to the beautiful island of the Isle of Skye.
