Scottish hotel opening

May is expected to see the debut of a new IHG brand ‘voco’ in both Glasgow and Edinburgh.

Voco, inspired by the meaning ‘to invite’ or to ‘call together’ in Latin, has added to the charm and existing grandeur of the Grand Central Hotel in Glasgow, by the railway station, with a bold branding and a distinctive new identity.  With 230 rooms, extensive meeting and event spaces, a locally inspired welcome treat upon arrival, and dedicated resident experts known as voco hosts, the new voco Grand Central in Glasgow will be a stand-out for leisure and corporate guests alike.

The second Scottish opening is the voco Edinburgh – Haymarket, and the first new-build, to open in the UK. Located in the West End of Edinburgh, the hotel will offer 150 rooms and suites, all-day restaurant The Blossom, and Edinburgh at the Bar, a self-description.

Voco currently has ten franchised hotels open across Europe, including Cardiff, Oxford and Reading in the UK.
