Why Choose us?

Ten Hill Place Hotel is owned by the Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh and was opened in November 2006. All profits from the Hotel go back into training surgeons worldwide.

Caring for people is fundamental to what we’ve been doing since 1505, when the Royal College of Surgeons was first founded. Over the years, we’ve been pushing the boundaries of surgical care and medical excellence for the benefit of everyone, and that passion for precision and innovation is reflected in every highly polished corner of every room of our hotel.

Located in a historic part of the city mere moments from the centre of town, Ten Hill Place Hotel at Surgeons Quarter offers you an experience like no other. When you stay with us, every little thing is taken care of to ensure your stay is as relaxing as it is enjoyable.

There is one more excellent reason for choosing Surgeons Quarter. Our success helps fund the availability and development of surgical care around the world; helping you sleep soundly in more ways than one.

Green Tourism 

We are all increasingly mindful of the impact we have on the environment and the need to act responsibly. Ten Hill Place Hotel plays its part by participating in the Green Tourism Business Scheme, an initiative driven by Visit Scotland, Scotland's national tourism body. We are delighted to have held the Gold Award in Green Business Tourism since 2008.

We took a decision on removing plastic water bottles from bedrooms and leaving Scottish wildflower seeds for guests to take away and plant, contributing positively to the ecosystem. 

We encourage our guests to think green when they are staying with us, and to help us maintain our standards. Any green suggestions are always gratefully received.
