(06/10/22) Hyatt has entered into a franchise agreement with the 12.18. Group to debut of the Destination by Hyatt brand in Scotland, as well as in the United Kingdom.
Located one hour by car from both Edinburgh and Newcastle airports, the Schloss Roxburghe Hotel & Golf Course has a rich history that dates to the 12th century and was formerly owned by the Duke of Roxburghe.
The charming historic estate and its expansive, stately grounds will be fully transformed into a luxury retreat with 58 rooms and suites, as well as 12 cottages, added to the property’s existing accommodation options by late 2022. An additional 49 cottages are scheduled to open by 2024.

“Schloss Roxburghe Hotel & Golf Course is a property of distinction and an exciting milestone for the growth of the Destination by Hyatt portfolio in the region,” said Felicity Black-Roberts, Hyatt’s vice president of development, Europe. “Our latest collaboration with the 12.18. Group is a testament to the value Hyatt places on nurturing meaningful, strategic relationships with owners to create luxury hotels and resorts in sought-after destinations that matter to our guests and World of Hyatt members. The desire for travel in the luxury segment remains steadfast, and this project is set to cater to luxury travelers, both international and locals alike, in one of the country’s most exquisite locations.”
Guests will find fire-lit lounges and bars decorated with the Duke of Roxburghe’s original tartan, contrasted with contemporary finishes such as stone and wood textures and natural color palettes.
The estate’s luxurious guestrooms and suites will be spread across three areas: the main historic house with 20 individual rooms and suites, the Estate House with 58 rooms and suites, and 61 cottages that overlook the estate’s lush grounds, each to be fitted with personal kitchens, snug living areas and secluded patios.
