Completed Developments : Western House
Western House, Ayr
As part of the racecourse portfolio, the Dawn JV inherited the run down Grade C listed Arts and Craft building. This building was fully refurbished under the supervision of Historic Scotland and transformed into a new 4 star Hotel, conference and wedding venue. Many of the original internal features were listed and maintained and refurbished including the main staircase, sky lights and wood panelling. In addition to the main building the two external lodges were also converted into 4 star bedroom accommodation providing 49 rooms. The hotel is now run by the racecourse and has won coveted awards such as Hotel of the Year and Wedding Venue of the Year.
