Description

Having been home to The Scotsman Newspaper for almost a century, The Scotsman Hotel is an undisputed landmark in Edinburgh.

Located at the city's historic North Bridge, The Scotsman Newspaper building was built in 1905, with a design engineered to dominate the Edinburgh skyline. When it became The Scotsman Hotel in 2001, renovation transformed the majestic listed building into a luxurious five-star property, whilst carefully preserving the Edwardian grandeur of its past.

Today, The Scotsman is one of Edinburgh's most stylish boutique hotels, combining modern luxury with the building's historic features, including ornate ceilings and a magnificent Italian marble staircase.

The hotel's restaurant, North Bridge Brasserie, is located in the former reception room, with original features from oak panelling to imposing marble pillars still in place. Afternoon tea is served either here or in the Drawing Room, a beautiful and traditionally-styled dining space. Both are elegant settings, perfect to indulge in this relaxing and refreshing Edinburgh afternoon tea gift.

Served with a glass of champagne, the menu spans a traditional selection of sandwiches, freshly-baked scones with jam and clotted cream, a sweet platter of cakes and biscuits, and a wide range of coffees and teas.

Available year-round to give a taste of summer whatever-the-weather, Champagne afternoon tea at The Scotsman is a refined and memorable experience.
