The Royal Yacht Britannia, Scotland’s best visitor attraction, and its sister ship Fingal, Scotland’s first luxury floating hotel, are celebrating after both being recognised by the annual Tripadvisor Travellers’ Choice Awards.

These awards reflect both venues now being in the top 1% in the world in each respective category.


Whilst The Royal Yacht Britannia has consistently been awarded this accolade by Tripadvisor, it is the first time that Fingal has received this prestigious award, having just opened last year.


The luxury floating hotel also continues to retain the top spot of the capital’s best hotel on Tripadvisor, and similarly The Royal Yacht Britannia is also its top paid attraction when it comes to ‘Things to do in Edinburgh’.




Tripadvisor’s annual Traveller’s Choice: Best of the Best Awards’ compiles reviews and ratings across the travel site to reward and celebrate venues of outstanding merit and customer service.


Commenting on this unique double achievement, Britannia’s Chief Executive Bob Downie said:
“The true test of quality is that perceived by your customers and our most important asset on both ships is the quality of the relationships that our great team have with them. I am particularly pleased for our crew on Fingal as this recognition comes not long after it was named as Scotland’s Best New Hotel 2020 at the Prestige Hotel Awards, a fantastic achievement in the first year of opening.”
