Bonham Hotel, Edinburgh

Conversion, Refurbishment, and Extension

To maintain its position as an exemplary ‘boutique’ hotel within the Edinburgh market and in conjunction with wider development plans to convert and refurbish the existing public areas at Ground and Basement Floors, a feasibility study was carried out to consider the provision of additional accommodation at the rear of the Hotel.

Consisting of 6 new guest bedrooms the proposed development is for a low density, 2-storey building linked to the existing Hotel. Located within an area currently used for car parking, the new rooms are arranged with south facing aspect, and back onto the swept curve of the random rubble stone boundary wall to Lyndoch Lane.

The new ground floor rooms are provided with direct access onto a landscaped garden that would replace the existing parking.

The Architectural approach assumes a reduced level over the gently sloping site, allowing the 2-storey extension to sit as low as possible in relation to adjacent boundary walls, in keeping with the scale of the existing mews properties opposite.

The works proposed form an important element of ongoing improvement and refurbishment works to ensure the Hotel continues to remain attractive to visitors by offering high quality facilities and making an important contribution to the tourist economy in Edinburgh.
