Where Will You Be Working?
Where Will You Be Working? This role will be one of the new appointments for SCHLOSS Roxburghe. Set in the beautiful nature of the Scottish Borders this historic property with its former 22 bedroom hotel, a championship golf course and the full range of sporting pursuits on the Roxburghe Estates, offers a getaway destination little more than an hour’s drive from both Edinburgh and Newcastle. Formerly owned by the Duke of Roxburghe, the hotel, golf club and part of the grounds has been acquired by the 12.18. Group. Our aim is to enhance this charming country house with an extensive refurbishment, building a separate extension to feature 57 additional rooms as well as a luxurious spa and a state-of-the-art meeting space. In addition, 60 lodges will be built on the surrounding estate that will allow the new SCHLOSS Roxburghe to extend its room inventory further to holiday-makers.

Investment Management is investing around 35 million euros in the revitalisation and expansion of the property, which will be operated by the subsidiary 12.18. Hotel Management. Together with Babcock Pensionskasse VVaG one becomes the new owner of the Scottish Roxburghe Hotel & Golf Course in the region "Scottish Borders", not far from the border to England.
