Best hotels in Scotland & Europe

The Moxy hotel , Edinburgh Airport

The Moxy hotel is a brand new hotel which has just opened at Edinburgh Airport.

Moxy Hotels brand celebrates its third Scottish launch in two years.

The hotel chain, a Marriott International brand , the 230-room Moxy Edinburgh Airport opened on 23 January and will create 36 jobs.The hotel’s design will be book-themed, inspired by the Scottish capital’s Unesco’s Cities of Literature status.

This will be the brand’s sixth UK site and is set to be followed by a second Edinburgh hotel in the Fountainbridge area in 2020. The chain’s first city-centre location in the UK was launched last month, when it opened the doors to Moxy Glasgow Merchant City and there is also a Moxy Aberdeen Airport.

The Edinburgh Airport hotel will be led by Fiona Mackenzie, who was recently been appointed to the role of “captain”, the brand’s take on a general manager position.

Ayrshire-born Mackenzie has more than 15 years of experience in the hospitality industry, including at prominent sites such as Turnberry, One Devonshire, Inverlochy Castle and Cromlix.

Mackenzie said: “Edinburgh Airport is the perfect location to launch Moxy’s playful spirit and bring something different to the plethora of hotels that are here. The brand has quickly gained a reputation for offering something edgy and distinct. We intend to stand out from the crowd.”

En suite rooms at the Moxy (there are 230 of them in total) have everything you could need of an airport hotel, sleek lighting, clean lines, free wifi and most importantly, supremely comfortable beds. All of which could be experienced later. Now it was time to dump the bags and get back to the blossoming party, in part being fuelled by Copperhead Gin. Named after a notorious alchemist in search of the elixir of life, the ‘alchemist’s gin’ as it’s labelled is based on five essential botanicals – angelica, juniper, cardamom, orange peel and coriander seed. Those subtle flavours make for a nicely refreshing Gin and Tonic. Already available in a number of hotels in the Capital, watch for Copperhead popping up in more venues around the city quite soon. “Anything can happen at Moxy…” was the reply when I asked about the ethos of the place. Within reason obviously. The millennial-focused boutique hotel brand, designed for ‘today’s hyper-connected, techy global traveller’ ensures a great atmosphere and fun vibe. That said, Bowie, Conan Doyle, James Bond as well as a whole host of famous faces from across the decades feature in the books and LPs randomly scattered around the shelves.
