Eh hello Markh1966 You my friend can come back and stay any time, what a great review. Reading it this morning with my coffee made me smile.

We stayed at the Nira Caledonia and we loved it. It is located in a posh residential area (Stockbridge) close to restaurants, wine/cheese boutiques, as well as the local Stockbridge Market. The area is nice and quiet. The hotel is a series of townhouses with rooms located in both the upper and lower floors. I would highly recommend splurging for... More

Hello HMTraveler I suppose that your title is exactly what we are, a lovely boutique hotel. We are just a small 28 bedroom property, we are a listed building , we can't have air conditioning or elevators but we can give amazing service, stunning food and over all that feeling of personal attention and a real nice experience.

We stayed at this hotel over a long weekend and were not disappointed. From the moment we got there, the staff made sure we felt welcome and comfortable. They were very attentive to our needs, so much so we mentioned it was perfect ice cream weather and 5 minutes later we heard a knock on our room door with two... More

Stayed here for 3 nights in an Executive Double (6-14), set up with twin beds. Room was of adequate size and felt modern. Highlights: - Staff! Everyone was very helpful, friendly and professional. Assisted with everything we asked for (with a smile) and everyone was always up for a small chat. Never felt stiff. - High-quality decor/furniture/towels - Jacuzzi and... More

Where to start since there are so many negatives? Reception so small you have to push other people out of the way to get to the stairs (there is no elevator). Rooms very small even the executive for which I was paying more than 220 GBP a night. The promised turn down service and complimentary water never came on any... More

We wholeheartedly endorse the many other positive reviews for this hotel. My wife and I ended up visiting Edinburgh on a last minute lark. We found this hotel on Trip Advisor and were not disappointed. Our room was very small, but very tastefully appointed. The bathroom was cramped (like being on a cruise ship), but had a spectacular shower with... More

We were in Edinburgh and celebrating my husbands 50th. What a find the Nira is, would really recommend it. On a quiet side street but within walking distance to centre and parking outside. Very relaxed feel - it has the character of a traditional building but with modern / comfortable / fittings. When we arrived we had been upgraded to... More

Hello PipF2014 A treat is about right, a little oasis of calm and personal service in a sea of bland chain hotels, is exactly what we strive to archive . We do try to upgrade if possible and my hand written cards are a nod to proper old school service from years ago in all hotels. I'm glad you both... More

Had a lovely stay there. The service was great, the staff were very friendly and the room was excellent. One minor criticism would be the jacuzzi having a bit of scum frothing from the tap and maybe the pump was a little low on power but other than the everything was really great.

Hello donnie745 Love that you enjoyed the service and the rooms, that's really the key things any hotel should get right. Just so you know I've spoken to the "scum" that frothed around your tap in the jacuzzi and gave it a telling off and told it not to come back ... I real terms though, this is probably the... More

I can't rate the Nira highly enough! Stayed for 1 night for my husband's 40th but wish it could have been longer. It's located on a lovely quiet street - you wouldn't think you were only 10 minutes walk from Princes Street. From the moment we arrived we felt very special - not least because of the upgrade to a... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Nira Caledonia is surrounded by the cobbled streets and Georgian elegance of New Town, a short stroll from Princes Street, Nira Caledonia is a central yet peaceful Edinburgh retreat. Amid the plush pelmets, rich textures and original cornices you'll find flat-screen televisions, Nespresso coffee machines, complimentary Wi-Fi and iPod docking stations. You'll find warm, heartfelt service and a cool, quirky style. Each of our sumptuous rooms and suites is unique, with its own opulent character. Many have vast floor-to-ceiling sash windows, others open out onto a private garden and some feature a relaxing Jacuzzi. All have new ultra-comfortable beds and pillows of goose feather and down. As a protected Grade A building we don't have a lift, but our porters are always on hand and we offer 24-hour room service. The cuisine at our restaurant is natural, fresh and often organic, with ingredients farmed, caught, raised or bred in Scotland and with over 25 Scotch whiskey blends and single malts, our bar also focuses on local flavours. With a friendly touch - and a touch of theatre - we welcome independent-minded travellers who prefer to go their own way. Come our way. ... more   less
