Overseen by interior designer Liz McNeill, the new-look rooms are set to be decorated in a country house style sympathetic to the property’s history which dates back to 1725.

General manager Alistair Kinchin said this marked the latest in a series of upgrades, adding: “By putting a major investment into our resort, this will ensure we continue to grow in Edinburgh’s highly competitive four-star market.”

There are further developments planned in 2019, with the addition of a new combined heat and power unit that will allow the hotel to reduce its energy consumption and lower its carbon footprint.
