My sister and brother in law stayed at the Roxburghe for 8 days during July and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. The staff were friendly and helpful even when they had to change rooms....nothing was too much trouble. The stay was made even more memorable by Gavin the head concierge and his excellent team who guided them for all their tours... More

The staff were friendly and really helpful. The hotel is spotless and comfortable. I didn't eat at the hotel, but the food smelled and looked wonderful. There were plenty of people in the dining room. The Roxburgh is in a beautiful part of Edinburgh perfect for visiting any of the attractions. My room was lovely very comfortable and quiet.

Such a charming hotel in a great location in Edinburgh! Right in the heart of the shopping area with some great restaurants and bars very close by! Rooms are on the small side but very comfortable and clean. The staff are also extremely friendly.

We went to the Roxburghe for afternoon tea. The hotel is luxury and the afternoon tea was absolutely incredible. The staff bent over backwards for us and we had the best afternoon ever! We began with prosseco, followed by a tower of sandwiches, cakes and scones with a choice of tons of teas! The perfect afternoon, thank you.

I have had the pleasure of staying at The Roxburghe Hotel before and to be honest I doubted whether my experience then could be matched again.

Staying in New Town

Neighborhood Profile
New Town
Suits and shopping bags rule the streets of New Town, until after dark when strappy dresses come out to play. This is the city’s central business district with its smaller offices, clothes boutiques, and many of the city’s flashiest restaurants and ritziest clubs. The architecture along roads like George Street helps give it a swank and formal feel: it’s a planned Georgian development of regal townhouses, geometric squares, and self-important statues. But it’s also a very wanderable neighborhood, with a healthy bustle at almost any time of day and fine people-watching in places like St Andrew's Square which fills with picnickers around lunch. You’ll also find a series of cheerful basement bistros on Hanover Street, while dark Rose Street has something of the feel of an undiscovered back alley and is chock-full of characterful pubs and small independent shops.
