Old Edinburgh building transforms into new hotel after £1m makeover
28 January 2022
Built in 1861, the Bruntsfield used to be three houses linked to each other. A new stand alone hotel, the Bruntsfield, has opened its doors in Edinburgh after a £1 million investment. The hotel - which was once Best Western Plus - was first purchased in May 2021 by Castleforge Partners.
The new guest rooms are bright and colourful with details such as beekind handmade bathroom products that support bees and sustainable pollinating, and bespoke artwork by Elegant Clutter.
Alistair Bruce, Managing Director of the newly refurbished hotel, said: 'Guests will feel as though they are being welcomed into our home when they arrive at The Bruntsfield. Our extensive refurbishment is inspired by our heritage and our neighbourhood, located in the centre of Bruntsfield itself, with a truly Scottish feel and is perfectly located for both leisure and business breaks in the city.'
Alex Pritchard, Axiom Hospitality 'After the past two years, we've noticed guests wanting to explore more than ever before.
