Ravelston House

Ravelston House
  • Architect: Douglas Flett Architects
  • Value: £350,000

This project involved the phased refurbishment of Ravelston House in Musselburgh.

Two residential properties above the business were converted into seven en-suite hotel rooms. Structural work over two floors including removing structural walls and installing steel beams was undertaken to accommodate the change in floor layout.

Each of the hotel’s 7 en-suite bathrooms were fitted with slate wall tiles, ____ floor tiles, high pressure showers and heated towel rails.

The new, luxurious hotel rooms were fitted with air conditioning, pine wall cladding, sash and case windows, TV wall mounts, built in desks and wardrobes. Case goods in the hotel rooms were manufactured to the client’s specification, making efficient use of space.

Additionally, the works included the refurbishment of all corridors throughout the building.

Another significant aspect of the project was the renovation of all of the hotel’s public areas. This

included the formation of a new restaurant, reception area, bar, function suite and private dining area.

All works were undertaken in phases to ensure the Hotel could continue to operate as normal with minimum disruption business.
