Stayed here recently from 6th - 8th Jan for a weekend away as part of my 60th birthday celebrations. The hotel is in an elegant row of Georgian houses on a wide, cobbled, relatively quiet road with open views at the front, where our room was, to the north and over the Firth of Forth. Public areas of the hotel...

I have to commend the staff at this terrific hotel. From the moment we arrived we were greeted at the door by the concierge, Scott and his colleague Jack. One of our party has a wheelchair. Scott and Jack were awesome and we couldn't have asked for better help in navigating the hotel and setting out the access ramps etc....

Hi Aamir Y, Thanks for the review. Great to get such positive feedback however clearly we have dropped the ball on the food front. Your points are being investigated as this is not the standard of food that I would expect to be serving in this hotel. Thanks again and have a great 2017 Robert

The rooms were average. They are the size of a typical American hotel room. The hotel is in a row of Georgian houses, and the staircase and outside were very elegant. The concierge staff was very friendly, and they provided great eating recommendations, and they were a big help in getting us cabs. The front desk staff was somewhat indifferent....

Booked the hotel months ago to stay in prior to a friends wedding. On arrival we were allocated a basement room. The room was small, dirty, smelled of drains and had the wallpaper peeling off the walls in many places. Having spoken to the front desk, who confirmed they were aware of the state of the room, we asked whether...

Hi Ryan M Thanks for your review and we are sorry that our rooms were a disappointment for you. Whilst our basement rooms are 'below ground', they should be in an acceptable condition. We will investigate and rectify. FYI, we are in discussions with our owners to accelerate a refurbishment programme. kind regards Robert

Had a two night break in Edinburgh just before Christmas. We were very pleased with the hotel. Lovely and clean with good facilities. Although we were given a top floor room under the eaves, the room was still quite spacious and comfortable with great views across the city to the Firth of Forth.

I attended a three day meeting in this hotel and stayed for two nights. On the whole it was a very good experience. So what do you consider for a hotel to hold a smaller meeting (say 10-20 people)?

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.
