Resident Hotels | Robb Residential | Greendykes homes

Loan deal: Resident Hotels will occupy a former tax office

Boutique hotel brand, Resident Hotels, has secured a £22 million loan with NatWest to enable it to proceed with the development of its first Edinburgh location. 

Owner Mactaggart Family & Partners (MF&P) announced last year that it would be converting the former tax offices at Meldrum House on Drumsheugh Gardens, into a 166 bedroom hotel.

The £50 million venue will take the group’s portfolio to six including four in London and one in Liverpool.  

Renovation works are underway with an anticipated opening date of Q1 2024. 

The team is exploring the re-use of glass recycled from the original building, whilst already preserving other materials from the existing structure to recycle and repurpose in future schemes.
