Chose because it appeared to be in a quiet part of the city although not too far from centre. beware of rooms facing the road. It is cobbled and the traffic albeit light speeds along and makes a lot of noise. Also the Hotel is not double glazed and the windows ill fitting (can only speak for my room) I...

My husband and I went to Edinburgh for a two night break and stayed at the Crown Plaza. It was a lovely hotel, the staff were all so friendly and welcoming and the chap who welcomed us on our arrival was so pleasant. He went out of his way to help us at one point when we needed to print...

We stayed here for 2 nights for bed and breakfast with 1 night an evening meal included. The staff are superb - so friendly and welcoming. The evening meal was excellent! Compliments to the Chef on the taste and presentation! Between the 4 of us, we ate the beef, lamb, seabass and salmon and every dish was perfect, as were...

We stayed last weekend. Reception and Concierge were excellent, couldn't do enough to help us, booking restaurants and arranging taxis. We had dinner on the first night the food was excellent couldn't fault it. Our rooms were on the ground floor lovely size and spotlessly clean. We would definitely recommend.

A really nice hotel in a good location about a 10 minutes walk from Prince's Street shopping. The main attribute of this hotel is the staff as they all did their best to ensure we had a good stay. From the check-in to the check-out it was most evident that the staff would do their best for every guest. We...

We actually stayed Feb 2016 for my mothers 40 birthday, I don't write reviews on all of the hotel I've stayed in but I really should. The first thing I noticed about the hotel was the style of the building; it was absolutely gorgeous. It wasn't your typical hotel, it's more like someone's house. Perhaps it was formerly. The other...

My partner and I stayed at The Crowne for 2 nights. We had a 3 course meal on our first night which was delicious. Our first night was spoiled by an extractor fan continously droning on throughout the night. By 02.00 & no sleep my partner phoned reception - no answer.

I enjoyed the one night that I stayed here. Was upgraded (never happened before despite being previously a Platinum IHG Rewards Club member but now only Gold) at check-in. The room was spacious with the luxury of two double beds. Sleep was lovely. The bathroom was very good too with plenty of lighting and ample hot water in the shower....

Stayed there for my husband's birthday weekend. The hotel itself could do with a bit of care and attention (or money spent to update it). The rooms were small and we could see the light shining through the false ceiling from the room next door. The staff were brilliant; they cannot do enough to accomodate you. The food was also...

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.
