Murrayshall makes room for yet more top class talent with new appointment

Murrayshall Country House Hotel and Golf Club has announced the appointment of Martin Cometto as Head of Rooms.

Martin Cometto, a consummate professional boasting almost 20 years’ international experience working in the luxury hotel industry, joins Murrayshall from Turnberry where he was Rooms Division Manager and responsible for ensuring the provision of luxury service throughout the hotel, as well as instilling and maintaining the high standards expected at such an esteemed, world-class hotel. He has previously held positions at the prestigious Coworth Park and Pennyhill Park in the Home Counties, as well as Knightsbridge’s own epitome of modern luxury, The Berkeley Hotel.

In heading up the hotel side of the business, Martin will be instrumental in accelerating Murrayshall’s climb to the pinnacle of Scotland’s hotel industry and his meticulous attention to detail and outstanding knowledge of financial planning will prove to be an invaluable asset to the Murrayshall team. 

“I am delighted to be joining Murrayshall at such an exciting time in its development,” says Cometto. “My passion for the hotel industry is at the forefront of all I do and my strong background in rooms division, particularly in luxury brand hotels, will allow me to implement changes and improvements to allow the hotel to shine like the jewel in the crown it truly deserves to be.” 

“The addition of Martin to the team at Murrayshall will be a fantastic opportunity for us all,” says Gary Silcock, General Manager, “And I am looking forward to seeing what his passion and energy will bring to the hotel. Martin’s reputation precedes him, and his exceptional track record and wealth of experience will be a true asset. 

With Martin at the helm the opportunities for Murrayshall are endless and whether it be generating and promoting ideas to enhance the guests’ experience, building a rapport with our members and distinguished visitors or maintaining the consistent and effective flow of communication between his fellow managers, an outstanding Head of Rooms like Martin is the essential glue which holds the operation together. I have every confidence that he will firmly place the Murrayshall on the map for guests seeking luxury and opulence in a tranquil countryside estate.”
