Myself and My wife stayed her for a few days after our wedding to relax. Service was exceptional. We had a complementary upgrade as we were on honeymoon and the suite was huge! They even left a note to wish us well. The breakfast was great plenty of choice. The spa was really quiet so we had the whole pool...

I love this hotel and always try to book here for business or personal visits. Staff are first class and it's worth getting up early for the great breakfast too. Next time, i'll try the leisure facilities. Fantastic location in Edinburgh.

We stayed for 2 nights. We arrived by train and it is a 5/10 minute walk. The check in was quick, friendly and efficient. Our room was clean and spacious (basic room). The bathroom was also spacious with a bath and a large walk in shower. I would only say that such a beautiful shower would benefit from a large...

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.
