The Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh is an internationally respected institution, a thriving global network of 25,000 medical professionals, pioneering in the advancement of surgical breakthrough and patient care since 1505. But today, our remit of care has expanded. We now offer cutting-edge hospitality, operating multiple venues in Edinburgh’s iconic old town, in an area we call Surgeons Quarter. Visitors can now meet, celebrate and stay, all in one Edinburgh city centre location. So while we continue to lead the way in surgical practice, we’re now applying the same world-class standard of care in hospitality.

Explore our venues


Surgeons Quarter is one central destination consisting of four venues. Each one shares its location and history with an unrivalled passion to deliver world-class service and style.  We’re an independent organisation, which allows us to offer a more flexible, personalised experience. This is exemplified by the importance we place on attention to detail – something that can be traced back through our history books – meaning we understand how delivering on the little things is just as important as the big things. So whether you’ve come to Surgeons Quarter to entertain important guests, to stage an event, treat yourself to a well-earned weekend away or to sample Scotland’s renowned local produce, you can be assured that each and every detail has been taken care of.


Beyond making your visit as comfortable and enjoyable as we can, there’s a higher purpose to what we do. We believe that everyone should be entitled to the very best surgery available to them. That’s why we share the success of Surgeons Quarter in the development and availability of surgery around the world. It’s our way of honouring the progress we’ve made through the centuries, and ensuring further progress is made in the future. So while we’ll make you feel great during your stay, you’ll feel better still, knowing you’re helping make a difference to the lives of people who don’t ordinarily have access to surgery.




 We push ourselves to excel, providing the best outcome for patients, and now providing unparalleled hospitality in Edinburgh's   historic world heritage centre.


 We’re obsessed by detail, and strive to make every visit to Surgeons Quarter a memorable one. We love what we do, and we   hope we let that show.



 We deliver an outstanding experience in all our venues due in no small part to the attitude and care of our  staff. We pride    ourselves in knowing we are working for an organisation who ultimately delivers surgical care around the world.   We also pride ourselves on our sustainability and have collected consecutive Green Tourism Gold Awards for our hotel facility.



 We offer an eclectic range of venues with character and history. Our venues encourage learning and sharing of knowledge. And  the local produce served is put together with flair and imagination.
