IHG has announced that two new voco-branded hotels will open in Scotland as soon as restrictions are listed.

voco Grand Central in Glasgow is one of hotels that IHG’s inherited with the acquisition of Principal Hotels. It has 230 rooms and is attached to Glasgow Central railway station.

Two new Voco hotels opening in Scotland

Over in Edinburgh, voco Edinburgh Haymarket – situated very close to the conference centre – will be the first new-build hotel to become part of voco in the UK.
