This hotel is in a great location in New Town -- about five blocks from Princes Street, mostly uphill, but easily walkable. It's very quiet and on a pretty street. If you want a formal English hotel experience with butlers serving your breakfast, this is...More
Having stayed before at the Howard and being blown away by the experience we were just slightly disappointed. Still a fab place to go and will certainly return again. We stayed in the Cockburn suite which was lovely in good proportion, however for a 5...More
I came here as a last minute booking with my partner and we weren't disappointed with our decision. We shared a huge bedroom and bathroom, the service was exceptional and cocktails excellent. It only dropped a star on slightly tired decor and average food. I...More
Return weekend family stay and as before thoroughly enjoyable. Again in the Mews which is great for the five of us. Special mention to the breakfast waiter (who's name I do not know) for his welcoming, obliging and attentive way
I stayed with my colleague and admittedly booked a small double, however we get very cramped and we requested a second duvet but had to put the sheets on ourselves. We only had one towel and one robe in the room so washing was an...More

Suits and shopping bags rule the streets of New Town, until after dark when strappy dresses come out to play. This is the city’s central business district with its smaller offices, clothes boutiques, and many of the city’s flashiest restaurants and ritziest clubs. The architecture along roads like George Street helps give it a swank and formal feel: it’s a planned Georgian development of regal townhouses, geometric
squares, and self-important statues. But it’s also a very wanderable neighborhood, with a healthy bustle at almost any time of day and fine people-watching in places like St Andrew's Square which fills with picnickers around lunch. You’ll also find a series of cheerful basement bistros on Hanover Street, while dark Rose Street has something of the feel of an undiscovered back alley and is chock-full of characterful pubs and small independent shops.

According to google maps we are 15 minutes walk from Waverly Bridge. There is a good public transport link from the train station to the hotel. The local bus services 23 and 27 will get you here in under 10 minutes.
