Following “record” occupancy numbers, Ten Hill Place Hotel, BW Premier Collection, has expanded to become the largest independent hotel in the city.
The hotel has increased its number of rooms by nearly 70% to take its total offering to 129 rooms. The hotel is adjacent to buildings owned by the Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh and was renovated as part of the development.
As part of the expansion, the onsite restaurant and wine bar has also seen an increase in capacity to 150 guests. The hotel is run by the college’s commercial arm, Surgeons Quarter.
Scott Mitchell, commercial director, said: “Work of this nature is always hugely exciting but it can be equally stressful too, especially in hospitality. But credit to our team and our contractors who have helped make it a smooth process, with guests, delegates and visitors benefiting as a result.
“In turn, our expansion will give us a greater platform to generate the profits that go directly towards improving lives for surgical patients all around the world – including those in areas of conflict and extreme poverty. We are hopeful that the expansion will enable the hotel to deliver its full potential, furthering what we already currently provide, our food and drinks offering, assisting our charitable aims and boosting tourism and hospitality jobs in Edinburgh.”
Rob Paterson, CEO at Best Western Great Britain, added: “It’s fantastic to see Ten Hill Place, BW Premier Collection build on its years of continued success to become Edinburgh’s largest independent hotel. The hotel has long provided the Scottish capital with a quality, cosy and convenient place to stay and these new developments mean they’ll be able to provide their excellent service to even more visitors going forward.
“Best Western members are investing for the future and changing for the better and the renovations at Ten Hill Place, BW Premier Collection are an example of how we are delivering more to our guests.”
