UK-based hotel management firm RBH has announced the start of work on the new Courtyard by Marriott hotel in Inverness, Scotland.

The city's first Courtyard by Marriott hotel, owned and developed by Molo Hotels, is set to open later this year.

Located within Inverness Airport Business Park, offering quick, easy access to Inverness Airport, the 130-room hotel will feature thoughtfully designed guestrooms, as well as meetings and fitness facilities, a bar and bistro.

The modular build hotel will be constructed using traditional methods.

Polcom Construction has already stared constructing the hotel bedrooms at its factory in Gdansk, Poland. Later, they will be shifted to the hotel site ready for the final build.

The new Courtyard by Marriott Inverness Airport represents the third partnership of RBH and Molo Hotels in the past two years. Earlier, they worked on Courtyard by Marriott Luton Airport and Courtyard by Marriott Edinburgh West.

RBH chief business development officer Andrew Robb said: "We've forged a strong working relationship with Molo Hotels and Polcom Construction over the years, and are thrilled to be working with them on what promises to be another outstanding property.

"We are also pleased to yet again work with Marriott, in particular the Courtyard brand – of which Inverness will be the fourth to join our growing portfolio.

"The start of works on site comes at an exciting time for us, as we kick off a year which will see us undertake more hotel openings than ever before. We look forward to seeing the hotel take shape, and working with Molo Hotels and Marriott to open our doors to guests later this year."

Molo Hotels managing director Ross Morrow said: "Breaking ground on site marks a major milestone in our journey towards opening the first Courtyard by Marriott in the city of Inverness – and opening the first new-build hotel in the city for a number of years.

"We've gained a vast amount of experience in developing airport hotels, as well as developing successful partnerships with Marriott and RBH, having recently worked alongside both to open the 250-bed Courtyard by Marriott Luton Airport."
