Sir Richard Branson officially opens Virgin Hotels Edinburgh

Virgin Hotels Edinburgh was officially opened by Virgin Group founder Sir Richard Branson at the end of last week (March 24), and to mark the occasion an exclusive musical performance from Royal Edinburgh Military Tattoo piper, Louise Marshall, played a selection of traditional Scottish songs on the hotel’s roof terrace against the impressive backdrop of Edinburgh Castle.

After opening in June 2022, the final phase of the launch will see the opening of the hotel’s 222 Chambers and Grand Chamber Suites as well as all dining outlets including, the hotel’s flagship restaurant, Commons Club.

Since opening its doors, Virgin Hotels Edinburgh has earned accolades including being named one of the “Best New Hotels in the World” by Travel + Leisure and voted one of the “Best Hotels to Stay in Edinburgh for 2023” by Conde Nast Traveller.

Virgin Group Founder, Sir Richard Branson, said, “I am thrilled to mark the grand opening of Virgin Hotels Edinburgh – the first Virgin Hotels property to launch in Europe – in this most wonderful city.

“This is an incredible hotel that truly embodies the spirit of both the Virgin brand and the quirks and traits of Edinburgh’s beautiful Old Town – a place where people can come together to have fun, relax and enjoy all that this wonderful city has to offer.”

Virgin Hotels CEO, James Bermingham, said, “We are incredibly proud of what we’ve achieved with Virgin Hotels Edinburgh. From the beginning, we set out to create a hotel that would be unlike anything else in the city – a place where locals and guests could come and feel welcome and inspired, and where they could experience the best of Edinburgh. We’re thrilled to see the hotel officially open and thriving, and we look forward to welcoming even more guests in the years to come.”
