    The Best Western Edinburgh Capital Hotel has evolved over time from a 20th century mansion house to a contemporary hotel that evokes a sentiment of glamour from a by-gone era. The original core of the mansion house is still at the heart of the hotel but has been concealed by a series of extensions to the building. Note that in 2013 the hotel became an independant, no longer part of the Best Western chainAn ongoing refurbishment programme, carried out by Hotel Renov8, of the hotel includes the majority of bedrooms, the reception area, the main bar and Westview restaurant. The interiors of the building have been brightened and refreshed with contemporary finishes, whilst remaining sympathetic to the history of the building with quality materials and furnishing used throughout the refurbishment.

    Ashbank Design Studios were asked to create a greater connection between the entrance hall and the reception area to encourage guests to flow through the space to the bar and restaurant beyond. The designers used a controlled palette of materials and finishes, including black glass, mirror, walnut, metallic gold and bright turquoise off-set with a white interior which has delivered a spacious, crisp and welcoming interior.

    The new dining chairs, supplied by CS Contract Furniture, were chosen for their classic style, generous size and solid construction and the tub chairs in the bar area were specified due to their comfort and art-deco quality.
