Ten Hill Place, the Edinburgh hotel operated by The Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh (RCSEd), is celebrating a record turnover of £2.69 million, after expanding its reach beyond its traditional corporate target market.

The 77-room four-star hotel, originally intended to provide on-site accommodation for the college and its conference hub, says it has achieved an 88 per cent occupancy rate thanks to Edinburgh’s festive and summer seasons.

Scott Mitchell, director of RCSEd Commercial Enterprises, explained: “The hotel provides a real personal alternative to the vast majority of big name city centre hotels and is run by a hugely dedicated team whose hard work has directly resulted in its most successful ever year.

“At its core, the hotel is a platform to generate profits that go directly into improving lives for surgical patients all around the world, even in areas of conflict and extreme poverty. We initially targeted visiting academics, medical professionals and delegates to conferences; but our customer base now draws from the festival season and hogmanay.”
