Point Hotel Conference Centre

Door open days


Designed as an extension to St Cuthbert’s Co-operative Association’s department store in 1937 by the architect TW Marwick (whose father designed the neighbouring building) the Modernist elevation was the first glass curtain-wall to be built in Scotland. The architect Andrew Doolan converted it to a conference centre in 2000, adding the Penthouse on the 5th floor which offers spectacular views of Edinburgh and the Castle. The conference centre has won numerous design awards.
