Inside the sister ship of Queen's extraordinary yacht Britannia -which has now been transformed into floating hotel | The Sun

THE SISTER ship of the Queen's extraordinary yacht Britannia has been transformed into a floating hotel – and is already open for bookings.

While the Britannia is a popular tourist attraction, anyone wanting to get a taste of life on a royal vessel can book themselves a night on the Fingal instead.

Situated in the same port in Edinburgh, just a few steps away from its sister, the Fingal is rated among Tripadvisor's best small hotels in the world.

The luxury floating hotel is now permanently berthed on Edinburgh’s waterfront, also providing perfect access to Scotland's capital.

The Fingal's website promises "a hotel with all the glamour and style of a superyacht, but with an old-world elegance that is completely unique".

The cheapest rooms on the yacht are the classic cabins, which offer bed and breakfast for £275 per night.
