We stayed here,for the first time, for 3 nights in August.Overall impression was superb. The staff are wonderful....charming,polite,knowledgeable...and good looking! We were made to feel very special during our stay,which is what being away from home is all about.The breakfasts were among the best we have ever had. We cant wait to return.

Thoroughly enjoyed my brief stay at this beautiful hotel in a prime spot in Edinburgh. Could not fault my stay as everything from the delightfully cosy bed, to the lush jacuzzi, and charming staff made my visit first class. An example of just how helpful the staff are, was when I had to call to ask if someone could remove... More

Hey Lola C We'll this is the first time I've been referred to as "Spider-Man" .

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this charming and well located boutique hotel. Outstanding service, knowledgable and friendly staff, great selection for breakfast. Situated in the Stockbridge neighborhood, we explored the weekend market, had a pint in some cozy pubs and dinner in several excellent restaurants all a short distance from the hotel. We do a fair bit of walking,... More

We've just returned from a lovely two night stay at the hotel. We had one of the petite rooms in the basement and whilst it was a little on the small side (could've guessed from the name!), it was more than adequate for a couple of nights and was beautifully decorated. The little garden terrace was a nice bonus although... More

Hello lauraclair. Lovely little review. Right let's talk pillows. Such a big thing to so many people, myself included. I often take my own pillow on holiday with me so I know how you feel. If on your next stay you let us know, I'll get super soft pillows for your room. Thanks for mentioning all the great aspects of... More

Beautiful traditional hotel with very helpful staff, that could help us with recommendations to restaurants and also places to visit , such as Edradour whiskey distillery (Scotland's smallest distillery, well worth a visit!) Nira Caledonia had a tasting breakfast menu, which also became a quite nice restaurant at the evening. The rooms were nice and clean, the only withdrawal were... More

Hello idme Thanks for a nice little review, you are right, it was a hot summer in edinburgh , (hardly every happens) but due to the hotel being a listed building we do not have air conditioning , we do have a great little bar though where a cold gin and tonic will keep you cool.

The furnishings in the room were very smart, as were the features in the bathroom, but for 300€ a night (peak season) it was a ridiculously small space for a couple. There was one tiny wardrobe, about 50 cm wide, with 6 hangers. There was no space to keep 2 suitcases, instead they provided fold.out stands to put them on.... More

Hello Damovski Well this is difficult! Let's address this and see where we end up. It's hard to know which room you stayed in as you don't mention but it's clear it was one of our "petite double's". Now with out sounding rude, these are small rooms hence the name. I'm always slightly annoyed when guests have a choice of... More

Just back from a 2 night stay in Edinburgh. The Nira Caledonian is a fantastic little hotel right near the centre, prefect for sight seeing. Being a listed building it has lots of character and is decorated to a really high spec. We stayed in the petit room which was small but had everything you needed and more. The room... More

My family and I stayed at Nira in July on our UK trip from Australia.
