The hotel occupies a prominent location in the townscape of Queensferry; it rests at the crest of Edinburgh Road marking the old boundary of Queensferry. From the E it is given greater prominence as it is arguably the first building of Queensferry that is seen. Much remodelled in 1870 by addition of baronial details.
