The Team

We recruit the best possible staff, who do their utmost to know all our Members’ names. We believe that cheerful, well mannered staff add immensely to what we have to offer. From the moment our Members arrive, to the moment they leave, they know that they have been in a very special little world that has been a well loved, well kept secret in Edinburgh since 1882.

In short, we believe that the lengths we go to gives our Members more.
