Situated in one of Edinburgh's finest Georgian streets this is a rare combination, the charm of a country house hotel with a cosy club atmosphere. Founded in 1919 as a tribute to those who fell in The Great War The Royal Scots Club is proud of its heritage. Courtesy, personal service and warm hospitality are at the very heart of the Club.

Neighborhood
New Town
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.

Even the basement rooms are very decent, large and bright with modern showers, great location and decent breakfast for £12.50, sometimes the floor boards are a little squeaky but its an old building and perhaps part of the charm, grandiose furnishings add to the ambience

Beautiful hotel but no welcoming atmosphere, restricted to where you can go, most rooms appear to be in the basement, it is also a private club, and there is a dress code, close to restaurants and shopping

A special place that has all the advantages. Always a privledge to attend. A quiet nights sleep is guaranteed. Very easy to move between floors and access facilities. We always feel welcome. Well done to staff.
