Lets start with the hotel; My wife and I arrived last night for a night away from the kids, we were greeted by a nice chap who had clearly read my reservation, a good start. Although the check in point is a little strange, a tight squeeze to get past anyone checking in. We were shown to our room which...

We stayed for just 3 nights, but wish it had of been longer. We booked a petite double and it was lovely. Just big enough for us for the couple of nights. We received complimentary champagne and the room had a Nespresso machine with pods provided, a nice bonus. The view from the window was beautiful. The staff were very...

I have now stayed here twice. The first time I forgot my toothpaste, and the gentleman on reception went off and bought me a tube without charge. The second time I forgot my comb, and once again within a few minutes I was provided with one free of charge. I was not made to feel embarrassed by my forgetfulness. This...

Visited here just for the night at the end of February. Lovely staff on reception, let us leave our bags and coats as we were early for check in. Gorgeous hotel in general, inside and out. One of the best hotel breakfasts I've ever had, so much selection! Will definitely visit the hotel if in Edinburgh again.

The room was excellent in all respects except FAR TOO HOT and the heating cannot be adjusted in the room. We were in a room next to a staircase and could hear the creaks of those going up and down it all night. I'm afraid for these 2 reasons we did not get much sleep. A pity because we loved...

The Nira Caledonia hotel is situated in a quiet street around 10 mins walk from the bustling centre of Edinburgh and right next to the wonderful Stockbridge area which has many good quality bars and restaurants.

We found our stay at the Nira Caledonia to be very disappointing. The hotel was lovely enough. We love historic buildings and were delighted to see the lovely Georgian rowhouse. However, our room was very shabby and incredibly and stiflingly hot. I suppose the stuffiness was due to the steam heat, and we noticed the window was cracked when we...

Staying in Stockbridge & Dean Village

Neighbourhood Profile
Stockbridge & Dean Village
Just downhill of New Town and attractively straddling a river near the elegant Royal Botanic Garden, it’s small wonder that Stockbridge became one of the city’s first hip neighbourhoods. It’s now one of Edinburgh’s most desirable, though many bohemian touches have fallen away as its residents have matured and the area has gentrified. Some second-hand shops cling on, but mostly residents display refined tastes in basement bistros, gastropubs, coffee and antique shops, boutiques and delis and at the Sunday farmers' market. A pleasant ten-minute walk away, along a leafy riverside path beside the gurgling Water of Leith, lies Dean Village. This sleepy neighborhood of medieval half-timbered houses still retains much of the village feel it had when watermills plied their trade here. Beyond, the wooded riverside path feels even more remote as it climbs to the sculpture gardens of the Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Nira Caledonia is surrounded by the cobbled streets and Georgian elegance of New Town, a short stroll from Princes Street, Nira Caledonia is a central yet peaceful Edinburgh retreat. Amid the plush pelmets, rich textures and original cornices you'll find flat-screen televisions, Nespresso coffee machines, complimentary Wi-Fi and iPod docking stations. You'll find warm, heartfelt service and a cool, quirky style. Each of our sumptuous rooms and suites is unique, with its own opulent character. Many have vast floor-to-ceiling sash windows, others open out onto a private garden and some feature a relaxing Jacuzzi. All have new ultra-comfortable beds and pillows of goose feather and down. As a protected Grade A building we don't have a lift, but our porters are always on hand and we offer 24-hour room service. The cuisine at our restaurant is natural, fresh and often organic, with ingredients farmed, caught, raised or bred in Scotland and with over 25 Scotch whiskey blends and single malts, our bar also focuses on local flavours. With a friendly touch - and a touch of theatre - we welcome independent-minded travellers who prefer to go their own way. Come our way. ... more   less
