We chose the hotel because of it's location in a beautiful neighbourhood, within easy walking distance of the city's many sights, along with it being a stunning Georgian boutique hotel. We were not disappointed with the architectural splendour of the building or the tasteful and elegant interior design. We were greeted warmly and very kindly checked 3 hours earlier than... More

Stayed in a suite and although Edinburgh is packed with things to do and see, I could happily have spent more time just chilling with my feet up in our room. I think I've become jaded staying in 'great' hotels over the years where what's missing is character and personality and this is Nira's trump card. The weather scuppered plans... More

My wife and I stayed at Nira Caledonia for 3 nights (25th-28th Jan) and we are so glad we picked this hotel. We did initially book a different hotel but changed our minds a week before due to some of the reviews we read. Picking Nira Caledonia was a great move. The hotel itself is beautiful, set amongst the stunning... More

I was so excited to come to this Hotel. I booked it a few months in advance as a surprise for my partner.

I booked into the Nira at short notice having decided to stay in Edinburgh for the night rather than taxi home and was very pleased that I did. My (single) room was smallish but absolutely fine, very quiet (the hotel is on a smart residential street at the Stockbridge end of the New Town), clean, well decorated and with a... More

Have been looking at this hotel for months, and finally booked a night away. Was specifically asked what room I would like to then be given another room which was quite disappointing and made me negative from the beginning. Don't get me wrong the room was beautiful (minus the chip in the bath) however don't ask what room I would... More

Stayed in one of the Jacuzzi suites - absolutely amazing stay. Staff are excellent and extremely helpful and attentive.Only recommendation would be that the mini bar is restocked daily when room is serviced.

My wife booked this hotel for us and we absolutely loved it. If you book directly through their website, they give you a free bottle of champagne when you check in. The rooms have little espresso machines, sound dock, tea maker and little mini bar. Every evening around 530 PM, they bring you fresh water to your door. The breakfast... More

I have stayed at this hotel before, and again this time round the service was the same. Nothing is to much effort, the staff are helpful and happy, the manager we met last time has moved on but the service has remained the same, quite often if a manager changes the standards change, but not with this hotel.

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.
