First impression of the hotel was that it was very nice. My opinion didn't change throughout our stay. We arrived as a group of 30 (25 children, 5 adults). Check in was quick and pain free. The owners and staff were all very friendly. The hotel is very clean and tastefully decorated. The bedrooms varied in size but most were... More

Stayed here for a one night business trip earlier this month. First impressions were good, lovely frontage and location. Decor inside the reception and corridors is nice and has a warm cosy feel. Inside the rooms is a different story, whilst not bad, the rooms are average and a little shabby and could do with the freshen up. I was... More

The staff were very helpful. It was in a great location, very scenic. The breakfast was great. Everything was clean & nice. The shower was hot & had good pressure. I would definitely stay here again. :)

Spent couple of nights at this hotel with my wife and thoroughly enjoyed it 5 mins walk from the Playhouse and 10 from Waverley station so it's not exactly right in the noisy city centre which suited us fine You can walk to all pubs etc in Rose St and stagger back in my case in 15 mins An older...

My husband and I stayed here for 2 nights over the Bank holiday weekend. It is in a quiet area of the city about 15 mins from the station. The Hotel, staff and breakfast were all very good and the price is reasonable however don't stay in room 6. It is quite small with low ceilings and seems to be... More

My husband and I spent three nights here in the middle of May and were pleased with our choice. My email queries were answered quickly and we were greeted warmly upon arrival. Check-in was a breeze (something I appreciated after our trans-Atlantic flight). Our room was spacious. We were on the lower level so didn't have a view but the... More

On arrival, we were advised our room was on the 3rd floor and there was no lift. There was also no offer of assistance with our case even though they could see us struggling with it. This was the first of many disappointments. We were told on the plus side that we had a view to die for - this... More

This sorry place hadn't booked our room and sent us off to a hotel which they said was across the street and turned out to be half an hour walk away. Then lied to the booking website saying it was our decision to stay in the cheapest place possible. I have travelled all Over the world and have never been... More

Location is excellent, an easy walk from the train station, either through a lovely park or along a bustling street. Staff were very friendly, welcoming and helpful, a real asset to the hotel. As expected for a three star hotel the rooms are not the most modern or fancy, but were large, warm and light with a lovely view over... More

Staying in Broughton & Calton

Neighborhood Profile
Broughton & Calton
Lying where grandiose New Town townhouses give way to malls and utilitarian housing, Broughton and Calton have long been transitional neighborhoods 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 epicenter 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.
