Old Town Chambers awarded VisitScotland Five-Stars

Edinburgh’s Old Town Chambers, a collection of serviced apartments that forms part of a £45m redevelopment of three medieval closes off the Royal Mile, has been awarded a prestigious five-star rating from VisitScotland.

The 31 apartments, including a 15th century townhouse and penthouse, blend state-of the-art facilities with centuries old architectural features, such as solid stone walls, original fireplaces and painted wall panels and beams, contrasting against double smoked French oak wooden flooring and Italian tiling, alongside the latest home entertainment system and a 24 hour concierge service.

Emerging from the 15th century Advocate’s, Roxburgh’s and Warriston’s Closes, the new apartments capitalise on the historical character of the site as well as some of the most captivating views across the city’s Princes Street Gardens, to give tourist and business visitors a unique city centre experience.

Julie Grieve, CEO of Edinburgh’s Old Town Chambers, said: “Serviced apartments are growing in popularity as tourists and business visitors seek out a more independent stay.

“The Old Town Chambers is, above all, about style and amazing spaces – from 15th century vaulted rooms to suites with stunning views across Princes Street.

“We are delighted to have been recognised for this and awarded five stars from VisitScotland.”

Manuela Calchini, Regional Director for VisitScotland, said:   “We are proud to award five stars to the Old Town Chambers, recognising this world class accommodation in the very heart of Scotland’s capital city.  

“These fantastic serviced apartments are what visitors are looking for and we are pleased to see a commitment to quality and service and offering the best experience to their guests.  

“The growth ambition for Scottish tourism will only be realised if we all ensure that our tourism businesses deliver the best experiences possible, as the Old Town Chambers are doing.    

“The Old Town Chambers are a great addition to Edinburgh’s offering and will make a wonderful contribution to Homecoming Scotland 2014 and all the other fantastic events of this wonderful year.”
