Any time a country or region imposes any sort of visa stipulation - even if it’s a waiver - the travel industry sighs a collective groan, knowing the obstacles and headaches to come.
EDINBURGH — For the first time ever, Red Carnation Hotel Collection will debut a hotel in Scotland, with the aim of making it the top property in Edinburgh.
Featuring uninterrupted views of Edinburgh Castle, the hotel will take over 100 Princes Street, respectfully renovating it to replicate the boutique atmosphere of Forbes Five Star-rated sister property Hotel 41, which has been voted TripAdvisor’s number one hotel in London for over 10 years.
The same award-winning hotel company behind the successful restoration of Ireland’s Ashford Castle has been tasked to handle the renovations.
100 Princes Street will reopen in 2020 as Red Carnation Hotels’ 19th property worldwide.
On what the new hotel will mean to the city, Jonathan Raggett, Managing Director of Red Carnation Hotels, said: “It has been a dream of ours to open a hotel in Edinburgh for some time, and with the best address in the city, it was well worth the wait. Guests at 100 Princes Street will enjoy everything that makes Red Carnation so special, from our individually designed interiors to the signature dishes of our President and Founder Beatrice Tollman, delivered with passionate service, generous hospitality and a genuine commitment to the environment and communities in which we operate.”
