Edinburgh's Salisbury Green hotel completes £4.6m makeover

The 108-bedroom Salisbury Green hotel in Edinburgh has completed a £4.6m renovation following the final phase within its 18th-century mansion house.

Located within grounds adjoining Holyrood Park, the 36 bedrooms within the mansion house have been given new mattresses and furnishings, while the other 72 bedrooms in the contemporary part of the hotel underwent refurbishment in 2018, including new bathrooms as well as a lounge and bistro area downstairs.

The mansion house was originally built in the 1750s for an Edinburgh merchant named Alexander Scott. It has also belonged to the Dick family of Prestonfield House and Edinburgh publisher William Nelson before being purchased by Sir Donald Pollock in the early 1940s, when it became a residence for students of the University of Edinburgh until 2006, when it was converted to a hotel and conference centre.

The hotel is owned by the university's Edinburgh First hotel, event and catering services business. It operates one other hotel in the city, KM Central, as well as self-catering city apartments on Richmond Place.

Lyndsay Wilkie, director of business development at the University of Edinburgh, said: "This marks the end of an intensive period of renovation at Salisbury Green Hotel and Bistro and we don't think there will be any disappointment among our guests."
