A hip Edinburgh stay at a brand-new pub with rooms overlooking the historic golf course in Bruntsfield - with full Scottish breakfast and a welcome glass of prosecco

For a plush and polished stay in Scotland’s majestic capital, this brand-new pub with rooms opened its doors late last year on the former Links Hotel & Bar site on Bruntsfield’s Alvanley Terrace. The setting couldn’t be any more fabulous, particularly for golf fans who will be within rolling-out-of-bed distance of the storied landmark that is Bruntsfield Links.

The hotel houses just 22 individually-designed guest rooms, all of which are chic living spaces that pile on the luxe with soothing colour tones, lavish fabrics, carpeted or wooden flooring, and rich drapes. The stunning bar and restaurant have been glammed up with scintillating chandeliers, indoor foliage, sleek flooring (made either from American nickels or wood reclaimed from 19th-century French train carriages), customised artworks (including two murals by Australian street artist Rone), and a canopied terrace with state-of-the-art fire pits. There’s also a creative dawn-till-dusk food and drinks menu, a separate ping pong room, and plenty of projectors and screens for sports broadcasts.
