4 New Ed­in­burgh ho­tels

Business Traveller - - UPFRONT -


This build­ing in the heart of Ed­in­burgh New Town has been a ho­tel since the 1880s – it was pre­vi­ously known as The Roxburghe. Fol­low­ing a £29 mil­lion ren­o­va­tion com­pleted in Septem­ber 2017, which en­com­passed all 199 rooms, it is now The Prin­ci­pal Ed­in­burgh Charlotte Square. Among the new ad­di­tions is a gar­den, a Le­banese restau­rant and a spa. From £180 a night. phcompany.com


Fol­low­ing a fire that nearly de­stroyed the build­ing, this bou­tique ho­tel, a mem­ber of Small Lux­ury Ho­tels of the World, re­opened in May. The ren­o­va­tion has brought the 28 rooms up to the lat­est spec­i­fi­ca­tions. It is a 15-minute walk from Princes Street, at the Stock­bridge end of the New Town. Food and drink comes from bar and grill, Blackwood’s, and rooms start from around £149. nira­cale­do­nia.com


One of the new­est lux­ury ser­viced apart­ments in the Scot­tish cap­i­tal may al­ready be fa­mil­iar – Lat­eral City Apart­ments’ lat­est res­i­dence was once the head­quar­ters of the Royal Bank of Scot­land. Sit­u­ated at the cor­ner of St An­drew Square in the New Town and sur­rounded by Ge­or­gian build­ings, the 50 apart­ments in­clude a pent­house with ex­ten­sive views. The site also fea­tures a restau­rant, bar, cof­fee house and cham­pagne bar. From £180 a night. lat­er­al­city.com


Float­ing at the dock­side of Port of Leith, flanked by the Royal Yacht Bri­tan­nia, will be Ed­in­burgh’s only “boa­t­ique” ho­tel. A ves­sel for­merly be­long­ing to the North­ern Light­house Board is be­ing trans­formed into 23 gue­strooms and two lux­ury cab­ins. The ac­com­mo­da­tion will also fea­ture a bar and restau­rant, along with a ball­room that can hold 80 peo­ple. It is set to open in Septem­ber. fin­gal.co.uk
