The hotel benefits from a private car park and all the rooms have been recently refurbished and are equipped to a very high standard, with all rooms offering En Suite facilities, Broadband Internet and Digital TV. The hotel is ideally situated within the vibrant and cosmopolitan Leith district of Edinburgh (where the Royal Yacht Britannia is docked). However, the city centre is only a five minute bus journey away.
The hotel was built in 1897 by a glass merchant who would use the tower to search for the merchant ships coming into the Port of Leith. Today the tower has been transformed into a beautiful suite which has been tastefully decorated to match the character of the tower. The suite has the luxury of a Jacuzzi bath within a fully tiled bathroom.
The new, traditional style Gosford Bar was built in 2007 guests can enjoy both real ales and malt whiskies while watching televised live sporting events. The hotel also has landscaped gardens to the front, where meals and beverages can be served.
