Property Description

Behind the façade of the 150 year old Lady Glenorchy church, you will find the clean, modern lines of The Glasshouse - a 5 star boutique hotel in Edinburgh, but not as you know it. Boutique Hotels in Edinburgh all benefit from a truly beautiful location and some great things to see and do in town. The Glasshouse is a bit of a one off though... Floor-to-ceiling windows, beds so big you'll slumber sweet, the crispest Egyptian cotton bed linen, baths built to soak in long and deep… A lavender-scented roof garden, acres of sun-splashed patios and cool, shady verandas. Eat and drink wherever you like… Service to your room day and night, shoes shined to a polished conker gleam, whiskies imbued with the character of their Highland home. Everything you would expect on a luxury city break in Edinburgh.
