Cairn Group completes conversion of Fife Hotel to DoubleTree by Hilton
Wednesday 30th August 2017
Following a £15M renovation, Queensferry Hotel has launched as DoubleTree by Hilton Edinburgh – Queensferry Crossing and the 10th DoubleTree by Hilton hotel in Scotland.
Led by Newcastle-based owners Cairn Group, the hotel is conveniently located on the northern shore of the Firth of Forth and has undergone major design enhancements as it joins 44 DoubleTree by Hilton properties now open across the UK.
Works have included the structural addition of 64 guestrooms, transformation of the hotel’s restaurant to become the Shore Grill & Fish House and refurbishments of meeting spaces and guestrooms.
To support the expanded hotel offerings, the current housekeeping and food and beverage teams will double in size.
“I am delighted to be opening the newly-refurbished DoubleTree by Hilton Edinburgh – Queensferry Crossing, creating local jobs in the village of North Queensferry,” said Stuart Douglas, general manager. “We look forward to greeting guests with a warm DoubleTree welcome as they explore everything the village, and nearby city, has to offer.”
Situated just nine miles away from Edinburgh, the hotel is an ideal base for exploring the nearby capital and village of North Queensferry, as well as a destination for business stays with meetings and conferencing needs catered for.
Hotel features and amenities include:
Guests can fuel their day with a traditional Scottish breakfast in The Shore Grill & Fish House restaurant, which overlooks the Queensferry Crossing. For lunch and dinner traditional and international cuisines are available, including locally-sourced steaks and fresh seafood. Guests can also wind down in The Forth Bar, sipping on after-dinner cocktails, fine spirits or chilled wines whilst overlooking stunning views of the Forth.
As well as 64 double bedrooms and The Shore Grill & Fish House, guests will have access to a 24-hour gymnasium, and, in 2018, will be able to enjoy a full spa experience.

DoubleTree by Hilton Edinburgh – Queensferry Crossing will specialise in hosting weddings, whilst catering to a variety of special occasions from charity events and gala dinners to birthday parties and anniversary celebrations. Conferencing and meeting facilities are also be available, with the capacity to welcome up to 180 corporate delegates or guests.
