Gleneagles outpost for Edinburgh 

15th of November, 2018 | Posted in Edinburgh, Editor's Picks, Hotel News Email Article | Print Article

Press reports that Ennismore is planning a new Gleneagles Hotel in Edinburgh are short of the mark, instead, Communications Director John Diviney told Hotel Scotland, ‘We’re not opening a new hotel in Edinburgh – more an outpost with a mix of restaurants, bars, lounges, retail and a handful of bedrooms.”

Ennismore got the go-ahead last month from Edinburgh councillors to transform two properties, formerly occupied by the Bank of Scotland, next to Dundas House at St Andrews Square. There is also to be a three-storey rear extension, a bronze-clad garden pavilion, a new rooftop terrace for members and 33-bedrooms.

Sharan Pasricha, Ennismore Founder & CEO, said, “This is an exciting time for the Gleneagles brand as we look to expand the Gleneagles offering through the development of another iconic building in the Scottish capital. We have been working with the local authority, residents and stakeholders in shaping our plans, and we intend to invest a considerable sum to bring this building back to life whilst, like Gleneagles, respecting its incredible history
and original features.”

Council leader Adam McVey said, “Gleneagles is a fantastic Scottish business and by expanding into Edinburgh they’re giving a strong vote
of confidence to the hospitality market in the capital.”
