Great visit with the Rocco Forte group in Edinburgh. The hotel was comfortable and modern, in a traditional sense. Great stay, highly recommend it. Only wish was that there was more time to appreciate it.
Wonderful location in the main shopping street, with all the elegance of a by-gone age. Classic interior with great views and easy access to Edinburgh Castle, the architectural delights of exploring the Old and New town easily on foot, and options for getting away from...More

Glaswegians tease Edinburghers that their High Street is only half one, since buildings only line one side. But what they don’t say is how extraordinary the views are from Princes Street as a result. From here you look onto expansive and decorative public gardens beneath the mighty basalt cliffs on which Edinburgh’s Castle stands proud above the rest of the dramatic old town skyline. Yet many of those on Princes Street look
the other way, as they’re concerned with chain store shopping or catching the tram or a train at main train station Waverley. But it’s not all utility here; the Scottish National Gallery rewards purposeless wandering, and December’s huge winter market in the gardens begins a season of revelry which ends with Hogmanay, Britain’s largest New Year’s street party.
