The Apex Hotels group opened their first hotel in Edinburgh. Opened as a lodge 190 years ago, the property was converted into offices in the 1880s but is now back as to its original four-star vocation. The Waterloo Place hotel has 187 rooms and is equipped with five meeting rooms, a "health suite" with a swimming pool, gym, and sauna and steam room. For dining, guests can visit Elliot's bar or the hotel's restaurants, which also offer private dining. The hotel opened in 1819 and is listed as a historic monument. It has been renovated and refurbished according to its architecture of Georgian origin and retains its large reception rooms. During the renovation, the group researched the history of the building. Originally called Hotel Waterloo, it was designed by Scottish architect Archibald Elliott and had some notable guests: author Charles Dickens stayed at the hotel in 1861, and former Prime Minister Charles Gray, 2nd Earl Gray, was rewarded for the liberation of the city at the Waterloo Hotel in 1834. The story of 13-year-old Alexander Smith at the time was also revealed. In 1831, he was convicted of stealing a silk handkerchief in the lobby of the Waterloo Hotel and was sentenced to seven years in the colonies. It's a fantastic project, and it's been great working with architects and contractors to help breathe life into this magnificent building. The opening of the Waterloo Hotel was not just another step forward for the group; it is also of great historical significance to the city of Edinburgh. The company has by far invested £ 30 million in this building which will undoubtedly be an important hotel within the portfolio. It will help revitalize the downtown area. This place joins with new Apex four-star hotels in Edinburgh, London, and Dundee. Enjoy Apex Hotels Promo code!
