    The Grosvenor Hotel originally started life as two Victorian Villas, The Glefinnan and The Roslin Hall, they began trading as hotels around 110 years ago and were then joined together to create  The Grosvenor some years later. The building has striking Victorian architecture and many of the bedrooms still retain their elegant Victorian proportions and features as  does the ground floor hallway.

    The Grosvenor Hotel was brought into the Richardson Group in the Autumn of 2012, taking the total number of hotels in the Group to five.
