    Leading luxury apartment collection extends Cheval Old Town Chambers

    Cheval Collection, the luxury hospitality company operating serviced apartments across London and Edinburgh has completed the extension to its Cheval Old Town Chambers property as part of a long-term strategic vision for growth.

    Cheval Old Town Chambers has fully opened its stylish extension developed by owner Chris Stewart Group which includes 24 new apartments, a brand-new reception area with a dedicated retail offering, and a lounge available for guest use. Located in Edinburgh’s Old Town and opening directly onto the famous Royal Mile at 329 High Street, Cheval Old Town Chambers now offers 74 apartments.

    The converted A listed property also includes a new 140-seat ground floor bar and restaurant, similarly developed by Chris Stewart Group. Called Luckenbooths – named to reflect a row of historic commercial buildings that once existed adjacent to the building – it is managed by leading Edinburgh based restaurant group Bon Vivant.

    Opposite St Giles’ Cathedral and only a five-minute walk from Edinburgh Castle, Cheval Old Town Chambers boasts one of the best locations in the heart of the city, sited within a UNESCO accredited World Heritage Site. The building dates from the 18th century and has been carefully restored over the past two years. The apartments offer unique views onto the Royal Mile and the cathedral or northwards towards Princess Street Gardens. Each apartment’s interior has a distinctive character, with all original features complemented by sleek contemporary designs.

    Mohammed Almarzooqi, Managing Director of Cheval Collection said: “After a challenging year we are delighted to now have additional stock in such a vibrant capital to enable us to meet demand as the hospitality sector begins to recover. As a brand we continue to evolve and adapt with new properties in high- demand locations and look forward to continuing our partnership with Chris Stewart Group.”

    John Phillipson, Chief Operating officer of Cheval Collection, said : “We are thrilled to have completed this additional extension as part of our longer-term vision to grow our offering in the UK. Cheval Old Town Chambers can now be directly accessed from the Royal Mile and will benefit from a more prominent position. We hope to appeal to domestic and international guests looking for fully serviced apartments as an alternative to traditional hotel accommodation.”
