New Edinburgh hotel scheme given the go ahead

Osborne House Edinburgh

Planning permission has been granted for a new hotel on Osborne Terrace in Edinburgh.  

The new scheme will see the 1970’s office building within the Wester Coates area converted into a 157-bedroom hotel, with a restaurant and bar on the ground floor.

The project is being headed up by York-based S Harrison, which acquired the four-storey building in 2018.

The development is one of five that the firm is working on in Edinburgh, including a new 72-bedroom hotel on behalf of Malmaison and Hotel du Vin Group.

Designed by the modernist architecture studio Morris and Steedman, Osborne House is located close to the Haymarket tram stop and only a short walk from Princess Street.

Ann Scott, S Harrison’s managing director, said: “Replacing the dated elements of Osborne House, which has been largely unoccupied for the last three years, with a vibrant new hotel will not only create employment opportunities, but reinvigorate this tired old building and give it a bright new future.

“Our successful track-record for hotel development has been recognised by the local community and planners, and we look forward to bringing the scheme forward.” 

S Harrison is currently converting Buchan House, a historic Grade A listed building on St Andrew Square, into a new 72-bedroom hotel with Malmaison Hotel du Vin Group.
