Our refurbishment of the 12 bedrooms in the Stair Arms Hotel has proved to be a big hit with the guests.

Here are some of the recent reviews on TripAdvisor:

  • “The hotel is in the middle of being renovated and all the rooms have been done. Must say they are lovely and done to a high standard.”
  • “Once in the room I was shocked at how lovely the room was. Recently renovated I could not fault the room.”
  • “Tastefully renovated bedrooms, spacious and comfortable, with en suite shower and bath.”
  • “Stayed the weekend while attending the Celtic Dragon MCC motorbike rally. Rooms have all been refurbished to a very high standard and a reasonable price being charged!”
  • “The hotel is being decorated and all bedrooms are finished and look beautiful.”




Management and staff are equally enthusiastic about the stunning results. Consequently, we are now updating the hotel’s public areas. This includes reception, lounge, dining room, a new coffee lounge and bar area.

We’re delighted to be working with this historic family-owned and managed establishment in Pathhead, Midlothian. It is situated on the A68, the main Edinburgh to the Scottish Borders route.

Select were chosen to refurbish all 12 bedrooms and, as you can see from the reaction above, the transformation was breathtaking! We consulted closely with the Ramsay family in the selection of all the case goods furniture which was manufactured in a tasteful grey oak finish.

Old carpets were replaced by plank effect LVT flooring. The new Hotel Executive beds come with a deep divan base upholstered in faux leather for easy cleaning and blend in with the room decor.

The Super King beds are manufactured with a zip and link facility which allows them to be split into two separate single beds. They are tastefully complemented with coordinating scatter cushions and a bed throw.

The padded headboard, complete with a bedside unit on each side, has a grey oak finish to match the room’s other elements. Sculptured black out velvet curtains hang from every window.

Each room is furnished with a two-door wardrobe, armchair and a dressing table which incorporates a pull-out tea tray. The ceiling pendant and matching bedside lamps were selected to further enhance the décor scheme.

Select supplied everything you can see in the picture above, including the wallpaper. The refurbishment was overseen by Select's own highly-trained personnel and the installation was completed with the minimum of fuss. This allowed this busy and popular hotel to continue working as normal while the work was being carried out. The images above show one of the rooms before and after the process.
