Check in with Scottish hospitality’s PR professionals!
Hotel PR is Scotland’s premier public relations service for hotels, guest houses and restaurants.
Established in 2001, we have represented some of the country’s top independent hotels and chefs. From Orkney to the Borders, Perthshire to Argyll, the Lothians to Wester Ross. From 6 bedrooms to more than 130.
Our unrivalled specialist media contacts throughout the UK and overseas mean we achieve great coverage for clients week in and week out throughout the year. You’ll find recent examples on this Website.
Hitting the headlines is important but we do far moré than just media relations. We develop relationships with third parties to increase your business’ attractions and give you access to their own customers.
For many years we have been the only PR agency on the judging panel for the Scottish Hotel Awards.
Our service is personal, professional, precise, creative and flexible.
How We Work
We work mostly on a retained basis for clients who contract for our services for a fixed term, usually a minimum of six months. However, we also handle ad-hoc or short term work, including crisis management.
At the end of each month the client receives a log showing work done during that month and the time taken for each activity. So there are no surprises!
We recommend regular face-to-face meetings – important for reviewing, planning and generating more ideas. To minimise any conflict of interest, we do not represent competing hotels or restaurants in the same geographic area.
Our Experience and Expertise

We’ll tackle your target markets, paying special attention to attracting guests at times when you’re not so busy. Areas with which we are particularly familiar include:
