The principal team took care of us from the moment we checked-in.. we got a free upgrade to the next category rooms and it was superb...everything is nearby, great location, great staff, great ambiance. Overall a happy experience.
Our room was a superior double and it was the perfect size. We also really enjoyed the full scottish breakfast buffet that the hotel put on -- it had a good mix of warm breakfast food, pastries, and fresh juices to the point where my...More
Upon entering the foyer I mustn't have looked like a serious contender, perhaps a vagabond or street urchin. The many concierge were too busy chatting to tourists or looking down at their important documents on their lecterns, to even raise their eyes towards us. So...More

Suits and shopping bags rule the streets of New Town, until after dark when strappy dresses come out to play. This is the city’s central business district with its smaller offices, clothes boutiques, and many of the city’s flashiest restaurants and ritziest clubs. The architecture along roads like George Street helps give it a swank and formal feel: it’s a planned Georgian development of regal townhouses, geometric
squares, and self-important statues. But it’s also a very wanderable neighbourhood, with a healthy bustle at almost any time of day and fine people-watching in places like St Andrew's Square which fills with picnickers around lunch. You’ll also find a series of cheerful basement bistros on Hanover Street, while dark Rose Street has something of the feel of an undiscovered back alley and is chock-full of characterful pubs and small independent shops.
