Charlotte Baptist Chapel, a grade B listed 20th century church building on Rose Street in Edinburgh, is set to be given a new lease of life as a 4 star boutique hotel and steak and gin bar under new planning proposals to be lodged with The City of Edinburgh Council.
Owner, the Glendola Leisure Group, in co-operation with their sister company Carlton Hotel Collection, plans to convert the former city centre chapel into a 4 star boutique style hotel featuring 22 bedrooms.
Under the new plans, the fully detached 16,486 sq ft building will also house Edinburgh’s first Bar & Beef restaurant, billed as a steak and gin bar. Gordon Street in Glasgow is home to the Group’s first Alston Bar & Beef restaurant, which has received rave reviews since opening earlier this year.
Proposals for the building were shared at a public consultation in the chapel on 29th July, where community representatives, residents and members of the public were given an opportunity to provide their feedback. Local ward councillors were also in attendance.
