The restaurant service was shocking, tables left after breakfast in an untidy state. Food not replenished on buffet tables, orange juice that looked and tasted like water very diluted. An order for porridge took over 30 minutes, and customer left due to the long wait. I ordered a bottle of wine from menu, after at least 5 minutes I was... More

Stayed for 4 nights as part of a course being run in one of the conference suites. The conference room was large with huge mirrors on 3 walls and a great view out of the first floor windows. The staff were really nice and helpful but unfortunately there were a number of little things that let the hotel down, despite... More

Stayed only one night in a room on the 3rd floor. Very cozy & in a good location opposite a park with a small view across to the water (from our room anyway). They offer a Herbal Sleep enhancer pack on your pillow which I have never seen in a hotel before... loved it! Have even taken it with me... More

Very nice hotel, reasonable location just in outskirts of high street by walking distance to Main Street and shopping centres. I had a lovely large room with a 4 poster bed, and two bathrooms - felt very spoilt. Gym unfortunately not up to much, small room with no windows and not much equipment- pool looked nice but was small.

Lovely to hear you enjoyed your stay with us and enjoyed your amazing room with the four poster bed, very special! The gym is small but functional, and we have some fantastic parks nearby for next time if you wish to get out and explore on foot with a run or a walk, perhaps up the beautiful Arthur's Seat, maps...

We stayed here for one night. I used the pool facilities and Steam room and it was almost deserted on a Fri afternoon. Room was very comfortable and the breakfast was also very good quality and plenty of choice. Staff were all very pleasant. A nice walk over the hill (10 mins) takes you straight to Princess street.

My fiancé and I stayed here a couple of weeks ago for his birthday. I upgraded and was able to use the club room where a good selection of hot and cold drinks were available. This was a nice touch and sampled some canapés before dinner. My only small gripe was that we were the only guests having dinner ....... More

After walking all day it was a nice surprise to check in to our room and see all the nice little touches to make it feel comfy and homey. Essential oils on the pillow for helping you sleep, hot chocolate, free bottles of water, cookies, chocolate, and luxurious bedding. The views over the Forth are wonderful! Highly recommend.

We stayed at this hotel for a one night break in April and enjoyed it very much. The location was good as it was close enough to walk to Rose Street night life but quiet enough that sleeping wasn't an issue. Bar service was good and breakfast was excellent , great choice of continental or cooked. I would recommend this... More

This is not a modern hotel. That was a good thing as it would have felt out of place if it had been. It is in a quite location about 10 minutes walk from Waverley Station. Reception was extremely busy when I arrived and there was only one receptionist. When I finally got to the front of the queue she... 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.
