This is by far the most unusual, interesting, and magical hotel I have stayed in. The staff were excellent and very helpful. The suites are so unique, we stayed in the Guardroom and I would highly recommend it. It really takes you back in time....More
I was so excited to eat here, having heard so many good things about it. We had reservations for the secret garden, which was charming. Unfortunately the snobby staff and mediocre food took away from what could have been a magical experience. For the price,...More
This was recommended to us by a friend and I would like to recommend the world eat here! The tables were beautifully set with flowers and long white candles atop brass candle holders, the building with tons of character. You felt like you were walking...More
Me and my partner visited this restaurant for an evening meal on his birthday. Whilst we had a lovely evening we felt and the food was nice we didn't feel that it was good value for money. We do not mind paying more for good...More

Few Edinburghers live in the Old Town, but its labyrinth of dank alleys and steep streets suggests this was not always the case. Today, it’s mostly visitors, tartan-flavoured souvenir shops, and pipers that you’ll find on its cobbled streets. This is the place to get a feel for Auld Reekie (Old Smelly), as the town was once nicknamed, and stroll the Royal Mile, the thoroughfare that links the castle with the
royal palace – two of Edinburgh’s great set-piece attractions. But there’s lots more exploring to do here down dozens of little alleys, or wynds, while at night the city’s busiest clubs erupt along the Cowgate which is closed to traffic for this purpose.
