We stayed here on a dinner bed and breakfast deal and would definitely go back. We had a suite, it was gorgeous, spotless and cosy. Beautiful big bathroom, double shower, free standing bath. Seating area, large wall mounted tv, table and two chairs, large triple wardrobe and dressing table. All tastefully decorated and welcoming. The staff were lovely, very friendly.... More

My family and I rented one of the function rooms for my Son's Christening in December. The room was decorated lovely, the food was amazing and the staff could not do more to help! The rooftop outdoor area is very cool with a TV, seating and blankets to keep warm. We had a great time and would like to thank... More

Found this little gem during the summer, bar area is never too busy serves a good selection of drinks and cocktails at reasonable prices. Great place for having a catch up with friends. The Place do a BBQ in their outside area during the summer, will definitely be visiting it again this year.

Hotel was great! Fab location within walking distance of shops, bars, theatre etc. The rooms were twin - very spacious with double or queen bed each. Dinner was included which was delicious! Full breakfast served in the morning, also delicious! Staff were so attentive, couldn't do enough for us. A real credit to the hotel. Would definitely return.

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.
