ROSL purchased 100 Princes Street, Edinburgh, in 1929. Formerly the Windsor Hotel, the building was designed in 1879 by Robert Patterson and was one of many Victorian buildings to grace Princes Street at the time. In 1972, Boots the Chemist bought and demolished part of the old building, then leased the upper floors of the new building back to ROSL, providing space for a larger restaurant, bar and enhanced bedroom accommodation.
