Premier Inn has secured four new hotel sites in Scotland adding almost 400 bedrooms to its expanding portfolio in the country.

The four new sites at Glasgow Pacific Quay, Perth, St Andrews and Stirling have been acquired as part of Premier Inns ongoing expansion across the UK to reach its target of 65,000 bedrooms by 2016 up from 52,000 today. The new hotels will create over 150 new jobs when they are open.

The four sites are:

Glasgow, Pacific Quay: a six-floor 180-bedroom Premier Inn hotel and restaurant on the banks of the River Clyde, opposite the Scottish Exhibition and Conference Centre and new Hydro arena. Construction work is due to commence shortly, with the hotel opening in time for the Commonwealth Games in Glasgow in 2014.

Perth: an 83-bedroom Premier Inn hotel and restaurant converted from the old Pullars Building on Mill Street.

St Andrews: a 65-bedroom Premier Inn hotel and restaurant on Largo Road.

Stirling: a 60-bedroom Premier Inn hotel and Beefeater Grill restaurant at Forthside.

John Bates, Head of Acquisitions UK and Ireland for Whitbread Hotels and Restaurants, said, Were investing in projects right across Scotland and these latest deals add to the hotels we have recently opened in Glasgow and Ayr. The proposed hotels at Perth, St Andrews, Stirling and Glasgow Pacific Quay highlight the flexibility and security we bring to projects, giving residents and local authorities the confidence they need that we are the right partner for them.

Since March 2012, Whitbread has created more than 3,000 new jobs across the country and plans to create 10,000 new jobs over the next three years as it expands its Premier Inn and Costa brands.
