£15m Spend on Queensferry Hotel

Queensferry Hotel

The Shore Grill & Fish House has been unveiled as part of a £15 million investment at The Queensferry Hotel.

The Shore, an open-plan bar and restaurant offers customers striking views looking out on the Forth and the new Queensferry Crossing. Internal highlights include brass details paying homage to the Forth road and rail bridges and a carved wooden ceiling with a nautical theme.

Sixty-four new bedrooms and a function suite have also been added at the hotel, which will reopen as The DoubleTree by Hilton Edinburgh Queensferry Crossing this autumn. The Cairn Hotel Group, who operate 33 hotels and 28 bars across the UK, will retain ownership and management of the property.

General Manager Stuart Douglas said, “We are really excited about The Shore and our launch is well timed to capitalise on the huge influx of visitors that the opening of the Queensferry Crossing will attract.

The new restaurant and the hotel’s rebrand as a DoubleTree by Hilton in the next few months will be hugely positive for the local area and the substantial investment reflects our belief in the potential of the hotel.”
