About this Hotel

​Stay in an iconic Edinburgh hotel with a unique 230-year history, within easy reach of Edinburgh Playhouse and the Castle. Once a church, then in 2000, demolished to leave only the front of the building. What was constructed in its place is a hotel with 77 rooms and Edinburgh’s most secret rooftop garden. 

There are no other luxury 5-star hotel rooms and suites in Edinburgh with views this dramatic, with nearly every room benefitting from floor-to-ceiling windows. Some have private terraces only a few feet smaller than the rooms to which they are attached; others have direct access to the two-acre lawned roof terrace beneath historic Calton Hill. They all offer contemporary interiors with clean-lined furniture. Service to your room day and night, shoes shined to a polished conker gleam, whiskies imbued with the character of their Highland home.

Food and drink in a light-soaked luxury five-star hotel. Simple, fresh and local — that’s the approach to food at The Glasshouse Hotel in central Edinburgh. Dine in an elegantly designed glass-walled dining space, The Brasserie, in view of dramatic Calton Hill.

There are few Edinburgh wedding venues promising such a range of choice. Step through the 160-year-old Georgian archway at the entrance to the hotel, once home to the Lady Glenorchy Church, and instantly pass into a bright and contemporary space. Combined with the rooftop garden, and different rooms and pergolas to undertake your vows, and you have one of the most unique and flexible wedding venues in the city.
