Mercure adds Edinburgh hotel

26 Feb 2008 by Mark Caswell

Hotel group Accor has added a Mercure property to its portfolio of Edinburgh hotels.

The 139-room Mercure Point Hotel will join the Ibis Edinburgh Centre, the Novotel Edinburgh Centre, and the forthcoming Novotel Edinburgh Park (opening this April) in the capital. It is the second Mercure-branded property in Scotland, the other being the Mercure Ardoe House Hotel and Spa in Aberdeen.

Mercure has signed a 20-year agreement to manage the rebranded hotel, originally known as the Point Hotel Edinburgh (the “Point” part of the name refers to the triangular shape of the Victorian building in which the hotel is housed). The property is located on Bread Street, with views of Edinburgh Castle.

All rooms have wifi internet access, and there are six meeting rooms as well as the award-winning Point Restaurant. The hotel itself was this week named “Edinburgh Hotel of the Year” by Hotel Review Scotland.
