I took my wife here last year as a surprise getaway. Having not stayed many places in Edinburgh I wasn't sure exactly what to expect. We entered the hotel and it was just beautiful. It had a very lovely atmosphere to it. The staff were very helpful, pleasant and polite. Someone even parked my car in their car park for... More

Having initially encountered a little mishap with our booking, the receptionist was quick to rectify the error. Our room was upgraded and our drinks on the house for the night. Our meal in the Grill was lovely and the service was good. The reception staff displayed perfectly how to rectify mistakes and make guests feel welcome. We very much appreciate... More

First impression as you enter the hotel reception is good however very disappointed with the condition of the spa facilities, tiles hanging off the walls, rotten wooden surrounds, needs refurbished! Lunch was mediocre at best and for £54 per person not value for money.

Staff were courteous, pleasant and attentive. We stayed in one of the refurbished rooms which was beautifully furnished and extremely comfortable. A lovely glass of prosecco on arrival from my son Scott was a special treat.

There is nothing wrong with this hotel. Rooms have everything you need. Great shower, comfortable bed, good location, nice people, etc. etc. However, thinking back to this hotel there is nothing that stood out (except for the bill with 250 euros per night). Nothing was exceptional and to be frankly that is what I expect when I pay that amount... More

Being a frequent hotel stayer you appreciate good staff and the Roxburghe are particularly helpful, they cannot do enough for you. The hotel boasts great facilities and they are even... More

Staying in New Town

Neighborhood Profile
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.
