The property is lovely, the rooms large and stately, the food excellent, the neighborhood delightful, but what sets this hotel apart is the extraordinary care, friendliness and service by it's youthful and exuberant staff.

This was my second visit to Nira, and after my first visit last July I was excited to have another excellent stay however I was more than disappointed this time. As a returning guest I had hoped there would be some kind of pleasant welcome like I had previously! But this time staff were quite cold and seemed to lack... More

The Nira Caldonia hotel far exceeded our expectations on many levels e.q. professionalism of front desk (who personally walked us to our room), the beautiful and comfortable room, furnishings throughout the hotel were exceptional and location to the tourist hot-spots we wanted to see in Edinburgh. Moreover, the quality of food in the restaurant was exceptional and the waiter/Chef shared... More

This elegant small hotel in New Town is a 15-20 minute walk to Edinburgh Castle and the Royal Mile, which my husband and I found perfectly convenient during our 3-night stay. Staff were helpful and professional throughout, and the hotel itself is stylish and elegant. Our room was immaculate, our bed comfortable, and we found it perfectly quiet--very important to... More

Our arrival really set the tone for our stay, as we were kept waiting for some time on check in as the small reception only had one member of staff. We booked a Suite which was located in the next door building which frankly was just a large room with a sofa rather than offering any separate seating area or... More

We chose this hotel based on the trip adviser reviews and I wasn't disappointed. Came for a city break with my wife and from that point of view this hotel is perfect, located in a beautiful and quiet part of the New town it is nevertheless only a ten minute stroll through Georgian splendour to the centre of Edinburgh. The... More

Lovely small hotel in a fabulous location. Rooms very comfortable albeit a little small. Very relaxing with exceptional service from staff. Hotel food was good and bar choice and service is excellent. A request for some essential supplies supplies ( required a trip to a local 24 hour shop) was met with enthusiasm and delivered personally within a few minutes.... More

Nira Caledonia is located in an old house in stockbridge, at some 15-20 minutes walk from the castle. We had an executive room and a single room. The single room was nice and comfortable, but very tiny. The executive room was under the roofs. It was large, but with a weird decoration: some kind of pink fake 18th century paper... More

Having read reviews on TA about this hotel we had very high expectations indeed; sadly we were left extremely disappointed. I initially contacted the hotel to enquire about the style of the rooms and the lady I spoke to, Sara, was extremely helpful and kindly offered me a complimentary upgrade from a suite to a jacuzzi suite (the highest category...

It's a strange hotel that has no heart. What I mean is the hotel has neither a functioning reception area (it's a desk in a corridor nor a bar! No bar, you heard me. They have a small restaurant, which is good. The rooms are nice, nothing special but nice. The area is very good. Away from the bustle. Staff... More

Staying in Stockbridge & Dean Village

Neighborhood Profile
Stockbridge & Dean Village
Just downhill of New Town and attractively straddling a river near the elegant Royal Botanic Garden, it’s small wonder that Stockbridge became one of the city’s first hip neighborhoods. It’s now one of Edinburgh’s most desirable, though many bohemian touches have fallen away as its residents have matured and the area has gentrified. Some second-hand shops cling on, but mostly residents display refined tastes in basement bistros, gastropubs, coffee and antique shops, boutiques and delis and at the Sunday farmers' market. A pleasant ten-minute walk away, along a leafy riverside path beside the gurgling Water of Leith, lies Dean Village. This sleepy neighborhood of medieval half-timbered houses still retains much of the village feel it had when watermills plied their trade here. Beyond, the wooded riverside path feels even more remote as it climbs to the sculpture gardens of the Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art.
