New tartan celebrates twenty years of The Glasshouse

The Edinburgh Reporter, February 10, 2024

The Glasshouse on Leith Street is a part of the YTL Hotels group, a unique collection in the UK and Asia, with ski hotels in Japan.

To mark two decades of the hotel attracting visitors from all over the world to the capital, a tartan was commissioned in partnership with Gordon Nicholson Kiltmakers. All guests and staff now have the opportunity to wear the Glasshouse tartan which has been officially registered. The design includes hints of both the Scottish heritage of the Edinburgh hotel and the Malaysian roots of YTL Hotels run by Executive Director Dato’ Mark Yeoh Seok Kah who was in Edinburgh recently to host a special Burns Celebration Dinner in partnership with Kilchoman.

The Glasshouse has also partnered with the Shortbread House of Edinburgh to create new YTL branded shortbread boxes which are now available to buy at £7.50 each.

This has become a popular wedding venue with its extensive roof garden. At The Glasshouse in Edinburgh, weddings booked which cost more than £10,000 receive a seven-night stay including breakfast.

Nightly rates in the hotel start at £200 or visit for more inspiration.
