Edinburgh hotels change hands

Speciality Hotels Ltd, a division of the Applied Capital Group of companies (AC Group), has bought the Braid Hills Hotel and the Ellersly House Hotel in two separate transactions for an undisclosed sum. Between them the businesses employ over 100 people and have in excess of 130 bedrooms and suites, plus associated bars, restaurants and function suites.
The Braid Hills Hotel will continue to operate under the Best Western banner. It had been family owned for many years prior to its acquisition by the AC Group. The Ellersly House Hotel, an Edwardian mansion located in Murrayfield, is set in mature gardens close to the National Stadium, the Zoo and Haymarket Station. It was formerly owned by Duddingston Leisure.
