Hidden behind the facade of the 160 year old façade of the Lady Glenorchy Church, the 65 bedrooms were redesigned in 2013, offering luxurious, contemporary furnishings. Many rooms within the hotel offer direct access to the 2-acre roof top garden, or balconies with views over Edinburgh City Centre, and all rooms offer complimentary wi-fi access, Nespresso machines and iPhone docking stations
With its soaring ceiling, movie style lighting and striking art deco design features, the tranquil reception area is a world away from the busy Edinburgh streets. The reception area also features The Henderson Gallery: a bright, airy exhibition space showcasing the very best of Scottish contemporary art.
To be fair the art alone has meant Mr Q and I want to visit. All the art on display is by Scottish artists and by golly there is talent in Scotland.
I loved the contemporary serving style of their afternoon tea, and even more so love the 25 Scottish Whiskys that are served in the Snug Bar.
The sculptures on the website were another draw. Mr Q and I love this arty feel, love how many things we saw that we liked.
Its worth getting our diaries out. Mr Q has agreed, even when he saw how close we are to some of my favourite shops. Guess the way he see’s it is that he can relax with a wee dram or two on the roof top garden whilst I pop out to hit his credit card a little.
Its a win-win situation.
