Manor's hotel plans for the city support the recent announcement by Scotland's Minister for Tourism, Fergus Ewing:
Edinburgh intends to drive up visitor numbers and spend per head through the development of the city's hotel and hospitality offering. The Edinburgh Tourism Strategy plans to increase the number of visits to the city by one third, increase the value of visitors' spend by 10% and reduce seasonality across the sector by 2020.
Manor is in the process of developing an upper three star hotel of circa 120 guest rooms with an internationally branded hotel which will be perfect for business travellers as well as tourists. Rooms will be well equipped with a 24-hour complimentary business centre, offering Wi-Fi and secure printing from every guest room.
Visitors will have ease of access as the hotel overlooks Waverley Station and is opposite the City of Edinburgh Council building and their multi-storey car park and will prove popular for visitors to the Scottish Parliament. Situated just off The Royal Mile tourists will find it an ideal location for both Holyrood Castle and the famous Princes Street.
Manor has planning permission for a 250 bedroom hotel which likely to be a redesigned as a 200 guest room focused service hotel from the stable of Manor’s international hotel operator.
The hotel sits within a new leisure quarter offering café’s restaurants and retail facilities, opposite the Haymarket railway station and sits above a 380 space car park. It will be served by the new tram system connecting it to Princes Street. The development is close to Edinburgh’s International Conference Centre and adjacent to the city’s financial quarter, with good access to the airport and the main western road system.
