Hotels are appearing in a wider range of places than ever before and the Scottish tourist season is lengthening. In the Borders, Edinburgh developer New Land Assets lodged a detailed planning application for a retail development which will include a 71-bedroom Premier Inn. Edinburgh Marina Hyatt Hotels will operate a new 187-room spa and conference hotel which will include 98 serviced apartments. And one of the largest regeneration projects going on in the UK, the St James Centre in Edinburgh, due to open in 2020 with 850,000 sq ft of retail space, will include a five-star W Hotel and a Roomzzz Aparthotel. Demand for rooms near the Hydro has soared as its reputation for major events has risen in the five years since it opened. This has added to the demand from conferences at the Scottish Event Campus, formerly known as the Scottish Exhibition and Conference Centre. The campus generates £400m annually for the Glasgow economy.’

    This is certain

    Come Indie, Scotland will see a massive increase in GDP and employment.

    Only the dead hand of Westminster and the two Brexit Parties can stop it.

    They are trying hard to do us down to keep the SE of England parasitically rich.
