About Chardon Hotels
The hotel company was founded by Maurice Taylor in 1972 with a 10-bedroom Albany in Edinburgh. Today, Chardon Hotels owns successful hotels as well as the award-winning La Bonne Auberge Brasserie in Glasgow. Moreover, the constant development of the hotel group established Maurice Taylor as one of the most renowned hospitality entrepreneurs in Scotland.
Mr Taylor felt inspired to become an owner of a hotel chain while in Paris and made it his life's goal. Safe to say, his determination and vision paid off. Starting out as a junior night porter at the Turnberry Hotel, he now owns and operates a portfolio of six hotels throughout Scotland. And in case you were wondering what Chardon means, it's 'thistle' in French.

The impressive portfolio includes Holiday Inn Glasgow Theatreland, a finalist for the Scottish Hotel Awards and Prestige Awards. Additionally, it's been awarded the AA 4-star rating.
Other awards include Hotel Restaurant of the Year at the Prestige Awards for La Bonne Auberge at Holiday Inn Glasgow Theatreland. Moreover, the brasserie has been the proud awardee of AA Rosette for the last 16 years!
