Hyatt is opening its first hotel in Scotland later this year, pre-empting the opening of the Hyatt Centric Edinburgh Haymarket in 2025.
In this case, it is not a new hotel but the existing SCHLOSS Roxburghe Hotel, pictured below.
It will join Hyatt’s luxury collection brand ‘Destination by Hyatt’. It is just one hour’s drive from both Edinburgh and Newcastle.
SCHLOSS Roxburghe (‘Schloss’ means castle or palace in German, it isn’t clear why the hotel capitalises it!) dates back to the 12th century and was formerly owned by the Duke of Roxburghe. Whilst it is an existing hotel, it is getting a signficant refurbishment that will triple the available rooms.
“The estate’s luxurious guestrooms and suites will be spread across three areas: the main historic house with 20 individual rooms and suites, the Estate House with 58 rooms and suites, and 61 cottages that overlook the estate’s lush grounds, each to be fitted with personal kitchens, snug living areas and secluded patios.”
The Estate House and the first 12 cottages will open this year, with the remaining 49 to open during 2023 and 2024.
There will be two restaurants, three bars, two lounges and a 600sqm spa facility featuring two saunas and an outdoor infinity pool.
The hotel is not yet on the Hyatt website, but I imagine we will see it there shortly given the planned opening “later this year”. It sounds quite impressive and I’m sure we will get to take a closer look soon. The website for the existing hotel is here.
