Hotel, room and restaurant were great value and I would highly recommend. Room was on the 9th floor so nice and quiet. Glad of this as there were building works opposite the hotel at the back. Room was lovely and clean. Large bed, elemis products in the bathroom, large tv and DVD player. Pool was a bit chilly but nice...

Although we came simply because we were attending a weekend conference, we added an extra couple of days because the hotel is in such an excellent position for the station and for seeing the sights - and are very glad we did. The room was spacious and well equipped (no view, but very quiet). The breakfasts were simply the best...

However, our room was more of a bunk room, dark, and a view of garbage and a wall, the sofabett was a small folding bed where you could feel every feather. After complaining, we got a slightly better room with a decent sofa, but with...

The breakfast had a huge variety of choice ranging from cooked to continental style. The facilities were excellent. The location was central. We all thoroughly enjoyed the...

Overall I liked this hotel and would go again. Substantial breakfast, comfortable room and good spa experience. Good value. The only drawback was not the hotel's fault, but noisy drunks in the street outside at night.

This was our fist visit to Edinburgh. We were upgraded to a luxurious suite that was totally unexpected. We were only there for one night. We would have loved to stay for a week. We had a great experience.

My wife and I spent 4 nights here recently. Hotel is in a great location close to all major sights and shopping areas. We had dinner in the restaurant on our first night from the fixed price menu and while the selection was limited, the quality was very good and offered good value. We were in room 817 which was...

Staying in Broughton & Calton

Neighbourhood Profile
Broughton & Calton
Lying where grandiose New Town townhouses give way to malls and utilitarian housing, Broughton and Calton have long been transitional neighbourhoods with a mixed identity. It’s here that Edinburgh’s gay village found a home in the 1980s. But gay culture is anything but overt along bustling epicentre Broughton Street; even if polished pubs, hip bistros, smart delis and art galleries all speak of affluent good taste. The top of Leith Walk is more ragged. This major thoroughfare boasts a famously gritty gay club, as well as a strip of good Indian restaurants. Regal Georgian and Victorian townhouses preside over largely deserted streets in Calton, where only the occasional restaurant or hotel brings much life. Even so, a steady trickle of idlers and picnickers pass by to climb Calton Hill for its wide-open lawns, wonderful city views, and curious monuments – an Athenian-style temple among them.
