If the idea of owning your own hotel appeals, then this grand terraced Victorian townhouse in a prestigious area of Edinburgh could be perfect for you.


The West End Hotel is a Category B Listed building, which has its accommodation spread over five main levels. It has been refurbished to an exceptional standard and was developed with a great eye for detail. It could also very easily be converted back into a prestigious private residence, subject to the correct planning application.

The main entrance leads into the hallway, which would be the entrance for guests. To the left is the open-plan bar and dining area which utilises the full depth of the property, and the bar area is capable of holding 25 patrons to the front, while the casual dining area holds 30 covers.

At lower ground level is the communal kitchen for guests staying on a self-catering basis and there is an adjoining dining area for ten people to use at one time. Next to this is a guests’ laundry with coin operated machines.

There is a total of ten bedrooms/dormitories which could sleep up to 66 people. The bedrooms are located at first, second and third floor levels. There are communal shower room facilities on the first floor for guests in the non en suite dormitories.

In terms of storage, housekeeping stores are on the upper levels, there is a boiler room in the garden level extension, under pavement stores to the front including beer cellar. At the rear of the property there is a small townhouse garden and terrace area.


Located in the popular West End of Edinburgh, the West End Hotel is readily accessible to Edinburgh’s tourist attractions and is only a short walking distance from Haymarket area, which forms the south boundary of the famous New Town. Princes Street, with the beautiful backdrop of Edinburgh Castle and Princes Street Gardens, offers some of Edinburgh’s most specialised shops. The two magnificent squares, St Andrew Square and Charlotte Square, are linked by the prestigious George Street and along with Queen Street are home to Edinburgh’s business world. In and around the city centre and especially at the West End, there is an endless variety of restaurants and bars with every possible taste in food catered for. Its theatres and cinemas are within easy reach and are at most a five minute taxi drive away.
