CHARACTER & STYLE
A neo-classical building with Art Deco touches, this hotel was formerly the head office of the Royal Bank of Scotland and has been lovingly restored to retain its 1930s features, from its chequerboard floor tiles to its marble staircase. There's a modern sense of glamour through the bold use of colour, abstract art and designer lighting.
There's a basement gym (formerly the bank vaults) with classes and personal trainers available. The Register Club doubles up as a lounge and dining area with plush leather and velvet seating. Staff are friendly and personable.
