It's a service normally only offered by the most luxurious of hotels.

But Art Roch in Edinburgh believes it is the first hostel in Europe to provide a butler for guests.

Guests at the Grassmarket hostel will be able to pamper themselves, with 19-year-old butler Sebastian Gainsburgh offering services ranging from providing breakfast in bed on a silver tray, to a personal tour of the city, or a shoe shine.

They will even be able to choose, while booking, what they want 6ft 1in model Sebastian to wear by selecting either a "smooth" or a "rough" butler - the traditional butler outfit or a kilt and tight-fitting T-shirt.
