New boutique hotel opens in Edinburgh

A new nine-bedroom boutique hotel in Edinburgh intends to combine the traditional features of the Victorian property in which it is located with quirky, contemporary touches.

Owned by independent leisure company G1 Group, Murrayfield House is located directly opposite the home of Scottish rugby, Murrayfield Stadium.

Each of the bedrooms - which can be booked individually or as part of an exclusive package of the whole hotel - features vintage photo frames and daily complimentary gifts, including miniature whiskies and home-made macaroons.

Nikki Greenhaulgh, business development manager of G1, said that the intention was to create a home from home within the hotel.

"We want to make people smile as soon as they walk through the door and instantly feel relaxed. That's why we put the extra quirky touches into each room to make guests feel welcome and really love their experience here.

"Original features, including high ceilings and ornate cornicing, have been blended with modern designs to create the lavish yet welcoming setting here at Murrayfield House."

G1 owns three other hotels in the city - Central hotel, Grassmarket hotel and Bank hotel - as well as more than 40 restaurants, bars, clubs and cinemas across Scotland.
