The Edinburgh-headquartered hotel group, traditionally known for its warmer welcome policy, will offer locals and guests the chance to cool down.

Apex Hotels has pledged to help keep Scots cool if this week’s heatwave makes its way north of the border – with free iced coffee when the temperatures hit 18˚C.

The headline-making heatwave, which could see the mercury push up to 18˚C in Scotland, has seen temperatures begin to soar already down south.

Angela Vickers, is CEO of Apex with a portfolio including hotels across Edinburgh, Glasgow and Dundee: “After what feels like a very long winter, we’re delighted to hear that spring is making an appearance, and we hope the mini-heatwave makes its way north of the border.

“While we all love to bask in the warm weather, we Scots are known for complaining of being ‘too hot’ when the temperature rises – so we’re prepared to combat that with free iced coffee for guests, and locals who pop into our Glasgow, Dundee or Grassmarket hotels, should the weather get a little too hot to handle. Our guests have come to know us for our warmer welcome but in some cases only a cold treat will do so, if the heatwave makes its way to Scotland, we are very happy to oblige.”

Anyone who pops into, or is staying at, Apex City of Glasgow, Apex Grassmarket or Apex City Quay Hotel & Spa in Dundee when the mercury hits the right temperature will be entitled to a free ILLY Crema Caffé from any of the hotels’ bars.
