Luxury serviced apartment brand Cheval Collection has continued its expansion beyond London, with the addition of a third property in Edinburgh.
Cheval Abbey Strand Apartments at Holyrood is housed within a 500-year old building next to the Palace of Holyroodhouse, the official residence of Queen Elizabeth II in Scotland.
According to the group the residence “brings together a rich past with a contemporary lifestyle; historic fireplaces and age-old walls fill the nine apartments’ characterful spaces”.
There are four open plan studios, four one-bedroom apartments, and one two-bedroom apartments sleeping up to five guests, overlooking a new physic garden “inspired by some of the earliest recorded gardens at the Palace”.
The property joins Cheval The Edinburgh Grand, and Cheval Old Town Chambers, both of which joined the group this month.
Commenting on the news George Westwell, CEO of Cheval Collection, said:
“We are thrilled to welcome Abbey Strand Apartments at Holyrood into the Cheval Collection portfolio, alongside The Edinburgh Grand and Old Town Chambers. These three historically rich buildings in Scotland’s capital perfectly complement our existing London offering and we are very much looking forward to continuing our ever-evolving journey, together with The Chris Stewart Group.”
As reported by Business Traveller earlier this year, the group’s Cheval Gloucester Park property in London’s Kensington district has recently undergone a multi-million pound renovation project, including the addition of a 12-seat cinema room.
