Motel One

Morgan McDonnell Architecture Ltd

A new 208 room hotel in the heart of Edinburgh's Old Town - the UK's first Motel One. The project involved the transformation of 5 previously disparate listed buildings into a coherent hotel design that would reflect the contemporary image of Motel One. The hotel is accessed via an existing entrance at the junction of Market Street and Cockburn Street. The ground floor level allows generous front of house facilities, which include lobby, lounge, reception, bar and breakfast areas, all providing a vibrant active frontage to both streets. Carving a five storey light well out of the centre of the building allowed us to increase the number of rooms we could accommodate, bringing daylight deeper into the plan.
