Earlier this month Hastings Hotels celebrated 50 years of the ownership of the jewel in its crown, the Culloden Estate & Spa. The luxurious property was purchased in June 1967 and, over the course of the past 50 years, under the direction of Sir William Hastings, has transformed the Culloden in size and luxury.

The continued investment has been recognised recently with Hastings Hotels picking up five prestigious awards at the 2017 Irish Hotel Awards. In addition, the Culloden was highly commended at the first-ever Georgina Campbell Breakfast Awards 2017 in Dublin in the Best 5-Star Hotel category.
