Hearts Hotel: Scottish club to open new Tynecastle Park Hotel inside their stadium

Heart of Midlothian have announced plans to open the Tynecastle Park Hotel inside their stadium. It is planned to be open in early 2024.

Hearts Hotel: The key details

The hotel will be located in the main stand on the second floor and will be the first hotel managed and owned by a football club.

There are 25 bedrooms in the hotel, including family, executive and accessible guest rooms that are individually styled. As well as this, there will be six meeting, conference and event spaces.

Included in the rooms are an en-suite shower and emperor-size beds. Guests can also enjoy a live view of the pitch or city skyline on HD plasma screens.

Ann Budge, managing director of Heart of Midlothian Football Club, said: “Tynecastle Park is set to offer a truly unique hotel experience in our iconic Tynecastle Park Stadium – the home of Heart of Midlothian Football Club. Owned and operated entirely by the club, the hotel is Hearts’ newest and boldest venture. It’s also the only hotel of its kind found anywhere in the UK.

“As part of our ambitious growth plans both on and off the pitch, our in-house hospitality team will take full responsibility for running the hotel and providing one-of-a-kind matchday experience and guest stays. The hotel rooms and additional conference and events space will offer the club an ideal opportunity to host even more events at Tynecastle while appealing to the millions of visitors that Edinburgh attracts each year as the UK’s second most visited city.”

Heart of Midlothian are also trying to attract international guests, including people on business trips and visitors from across the UK, as well as improving the matchday experience for football fans.

Ms Budge said: “As well as our vast supporter base both in the local area and from further afield, we hope to attract international visitors and guests from around the UK looking for high-quality, contemporary accommodation as part of an Edinburgh city break. It’s not just a hotel for football fans. Tynecastle Park Hotel is ideally positioned within a few minutes of the city centre, Murrayfield Stadium and the Edinburgh tram line. Also located on the right side of the city for Edinburgh Airport, this will be a perfect location for all types of visitors, including business travellers.”

The Skyline Restaurant, located on the top floor of the main stand will be available to guests of the hotel as well as non-residents seven days a week.

The hotel is offering dinner, bed and breakfast from £150 to mark the countdown to the opening of the hotel. Guest parking will be available, however it will be limited.
