The four-month old Tune Hotel Haymarket, Edinburgh, has been named the New Hotel of the Year in Scotland by the Scottish Hotel Awards 2013.

Group CEO Mark Lankester, said, To win in the New Hotel of the Year category is totally unpredicted. The award actually raised the bar for our hotels and goes to prove that we have been doing the right thing in providing international standard, high quality accommodation at very affordable prices. We are not only leading in the budget or value category but in fact comparable to the other starred hotels. The key differentiation is in our pricing and giving our guests the best value for their money that has always been our promise.
