Mr Paterson has more than 20 years of experience with a stint as manager at the Dakota, and in banqueting and food and beverage management at Edinburgh’s Carlton hotel and Westerwood hotel.

Tynecastle Park Hotel is scheduled to open early next month. It includes the transition of the Skyline restaurant to a seven-day operation and the introduction of six new dedicated meeting and conference spaces.
