The Scotsman Hotel and Grand Café

Scotsman Hotel Exterior

We are delighted to welcome the Scotsman Hotel back into membership, a 4* hotel located within the former home of Scotland’s national newspaper just off the Royal Mile. When converting the printing house into a boutique hotel, significant effort was made to ensure all original architectural features and layout remained intact. As a result, no two rooms are alike and each bedroom at The Scotsman Hotel is individually designed to offer a unique experience with every visit.
