Old Town Chambers, luxury five star serviced apartments found in the heart of old Edinburgh, has been shortlisted for the Best Performing Business award, at the annual Edinburgh Chamber of Commerce Business Awards.

The annual awards ceremony, which is in its 5th year, recognises and celebrates top businesses in the capital, with finalists to be announced on the 29th of February at the Sheraton Grand Hotel in Edinburgh.

General Manager Gavin MacLennan, feels it’s an honour to be shortlisted for the prestigious business award.

He said:

“Being shortlisted for the Best Performing Business award is truly fantastic. With Old Town Chambers, we’ve brought Old Edinburgh back to life by opening up views across the city, and closes that have been almost untouched for 200 years.

“Since opening we’ve gone from strength to strength. Occupancy figures have continually risen each year, with a rate of 82% and 100% during the festival season, Christmas and Hogmanay.

“It’s great to see this hard work being recognised by the Chamber of Commerce, and it shows the business is not only performing well, but that we have a great team of passionate people keen to provide our guests with the ultimate luxury experience.

In 2015, a further 14 apartments were added to Old Town Chambers, bringing the total to 50, ranging from studio apartments through to a three bed penthouse and 15th century Townhouse.

Each room combines stunning modern architecture and bespoke interior design with the surrounding medieval closes and inside, 15th century exposed stone walls and art work, giving not only a nod to its historic surroundings, but a place of luxury and comfort for all guests.

Gavin added:

“We’ve done everything we can now, so we just need to sit back, cross our fingers and hope for the best at the awards ceremony next week.”
