Brooks Hotel in Edinburgh is third property for husband-and-wife team

A new boutique bed and breakfast hotel has opened in the west end of Edinburgh city centre.

The 46-bedroom Brooks Hotel is the third property to be launched by husband-and-wife team Carla and Andrew Brook. They opened the 21-bedroom Brooks Guesthouse Bath in 2007 and the 23-bedroom Brooks Guesthouse Bristol in 2011.

Carla, a former marketing consultant, and Andrew, a property developer, bought what was previously the Herald House Hotel in Edinburgh, with a courtyard garden, from a couple who were retiring from the business. As with their first two properties, they have gutted and refurbished the business to a classic British "shabby-chic" look with a contemporary twist.

"In Edinburgh, we wanted to create something of the city, so we have sourced local antiques and combined them with modern, quirky furniture with a hint of Rennie Mackintosh," Carla said.

Carla went on to say that she and her husband would like to open more hotels in the future, but added: "We currently have our hands full with these three."
