We spent 3 nights of pure bliss in October 2012 in the Inner Sanctum room. It was a treat to ourselves as we were married on the second day of our stay at the Lothian Chambers which is the registry office situated about 5 minutes walk away.
We were welcomed into our room by the famous 'Roxy' who has been at the Witchery for years and is a perfect example of someone who is passionate about his work and certainly knew how to make us feel special. He informed us that our room had been inhabited by numerous celebrities including Catherine Zeta-Jones who apparently was proposed to in the room by Michael Douglas. Might sound a bit corny but it did make the experience even more exiting.
We didn't actually eat in the Witchery restaurant as we were committed with friends elsewhere but on the subject of food the breakfast supplied to our room each day was of very good quality and with plenty of variation. As well as lots of fruit and croissants the were things like carpaccio of beef with cheese....all excellent quality. The room has a raised eating area which directly overlooks the Royal Mile and we spent some time people watching. It is quite amazing to watch people looking at the hotel and we felt somewhat like celebrities ourselves being residents.
The hotel couldn't be in a better place and although on the face of it it is expensive, for a special occasion it really would be hard to better.
Going back to our room briefly it was amazing and spacious. The night before our wedding we had 9 people all drinking champagne and there was loads of room for us all.
One thing to bear in mind is that there is no parking at the hotel.We parked at the sister hotel at Prestonfield and that looked as amazing as the Witchery. They then arrange a taxi to the hotel and return journey although the cost is down to you. Think that may well be a future destination.
Thanks for a great start to our marriage.
