£1.6m investment to refurbish Masson House

Published: 22 June 2016

Edinburgh First, the commerical arm of University of Edinburgh has invested £1.6m in the refurbishment of its three-star, year-round hotel property, Masson House, which is situated on the Pollock Halls estate.  

The aim of the project is to upgrade Masson House to reflect a sophisticated and modern design, together with the addition of new bathrooms. 

As well as the Masson House upgrade, the bistro menu has also seen a redesign to showcase fresh, local produce. You will now find Scottish food items such as Stornoway black pudding, Stobbs Farm smoked back bacon, grilled Scottish salmon and Hornigs haggis. There is also a lounge menu, where visitors can relax and enjoy tapas-style meals. 

The menu change follows Edinburgh First’s catering team being awarded the prestigious ‘Taste our Best’ accreditation by VisitScotland, in which organisations had to demonstrate that least 40% of its produce has a Scottish provenance.
