Media Release: Old Town Chambers boxes clever with Valvona & Crolla


EDINBURGH’S award-winning five-star Old Town Chambers has teamed up with Valvona & Crolla to offer luxury food hampers for its guests, providing a delicious continental breakfast or wine and snacks for a quiet night in.

Created by the Italian food and wine emporium, the boxes include a range of tasty treats for guests to enjoy in the comfort of their own luxury apartment.

The breakfast boxes come packed with Valvona & Crolla’s own baked pastries, a selection of Italian cheese and cured meats, seasonal fruit, home-baked bread, butter, jam and fruit juice.

The quiet night in box includes cheese and meat with home baked oatcakes, Parmigiana biscuits and a bottle of Valvona & Crolla signature wine. Each is available to order in advance and costs just £29 for two people.

Gavin MacLennan, general manager of Old Town Chambers, comments: “Our Valvona & Crolla boxes bring the finest continental breakfast to our guests that they can enjoy wherever they choose – whether as a breakfast picnic in one of our king size beds enjoying views over Edinburgh, or in our state-of-the-art kitchens.

“The gorgeous boxes, which are wrapped like a beautiful gift, are ideal for our stunning apartments which offer the luxury of a five-star hotel with the flexibility of self-catering.”
