Housekeeping Today shares in the commiserations offered to staff of The Glenburn Hotel on the Isle of Bute following the announcement that the hotel had gone into administration, and all would immediately be made redundant.
It’s thought around 30 people lost their jobs at the property which closed in November as a result of the pandemic, with staff initially furloughed.
A good number had been with the Glenburn for many years. The 121-room hotel overlooking the picturesque town of Rothesay, which normally attracts many visitors from the UK and beyond, opened in 1892.

Now ‘unsustainable cash-flow problems’ have been cited for the closure and appointed administrators FRP Advisory say they are focussing on assisting the former employees while putting the iconic hotel on the market.
