Welcome to The Glasshouse Hotel

A five-star luxury hotel in Edinburgh city centre. When the 160-year-old Lady Glenorchy Church was converted into The Glasshouse Hotel in 2003, Scotland exchanged one iconic piece of history for another. With 77-bedrooms, this is a standout among luxury boutique hotels and is considered one of the best places to stay in Edinburgh. This historic hotel in Edinburgh features cosy-contemporary interiors, warm Scottish service and consistently spectacular views of the city centre, Calton Hill or the hotel’s two-acre rooftop garden.                                                                                                                                                                                             

The Glasshouse: Refurbishment Works

Please be informed that we will be carrying out refurbishment works to our Main Reception and Snug Lounge throughout January 2018.

Snug Lounge works will commence on 3rd January, and last for approximately 2 weeks. During this time, guests will still be able to enjoy use of the area, however at a reduced capacity.

Reception works will also commence on 3rd January, and last for approximately 3 weeks. During this time the hotels main entrance will remain in the same location, with reception, check in, and check out being located on level 3, directly next to the lifts. We will ensure that you arrival experience is not affected by this temporary solution.

The refurbishment works will have no impact on guest bedrooms, or other areas of the property. Thank you for your understanding and we look forward to welcoming you to The Glasshouse in the New Year.
