We stayed at the Crowne Plaza for one night at the end of the March. The hotel is in a good location and is approximately a ten minute walk from the City Centre. There is parking available on the street which is limited whilst there is a multistorey about five minutes away. The room was very nice and overlooked the...

Reallt nice hotel. We arrived on the weekend so parking outside was free. Room was really nice overlooking the garden. We had dinner, b&b which was lovely although pretty expensive. The staff were really helpful and friendly.

Hotel was in a great location which meant you could walk to most of the sights. Room and bed was large!!! We had room P20 which was downstairs . On arrival the room was very cold and there was no welcome pack in the room to explain how things worked. When we came back from a cold day out the...

Stayed at this hotel for a family vacation, didn't enjoy my stay here. Parking is a nightmare, "club lounge" is a joke, worst lounge I have ever accessed. They need to visit some other properties to see how to run a hotel.

We stayed at this hotel for two nights over easter and it was very much an average hotel. Check in was smooth but they didn't have the forms to fill in to gain access to the pool. The lobby area is very nice and smart. Our room was small but perfectly formed and the bed was very comfortable. The pillow...

Hotel was clean. The people at the front desk had a serious attitude and one woman/girl ridiculed me for not knowing that I had to use my room card to turn the lights on! Maybe in Scotland, but in Canada you use the light switch! Not a room card.

My husband booked a long weekend as a surprise for my birthday. We received a warm welcome from reception when we arrived. Our room was spotless overlooking the garden. Jane in the restaurant was a delight. Friendly helpful always a smile . She is a real asset to the hotel and made us feel that we had known her forever...

The hotel had real potential to be nice but there just wasn't enough staff. Our rooms hadn't been cleaned by 3:45 PM and at breakfast, in the club lounge, there weren't any cups, glasses, mugs. knives, forks, bowls etc... It was as if no staff had been there yet alone clean it. The pool was alright but it seemed rather...

My 8 year old son and I arrived for an overnight stay and were greeted by a lovely chap at reception, (not sure of his name but very handsome redhead). He was extremely welcoming and very helpful and was not wrong when he informed us we were staying in a lovely room (P1). The room was huge with a kingsize...

Another corporate visit to Edinburgh and not to my normal venue, so was interested to see what the Crown plaza was like. Set on a cobbled street close and a lot closer to the centre than I had realised, this was a perfect location for my business (close to Tram) and indeed for a few drinks and food. Although quite...

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.
