Stayed here for a weekend trip to Edinburgh.
Truly a luxurious hotel. Apart for the warm hospitality, it is literally 10 steps from the main train station and in the centre of the city so ideal for on foot short excursions of the city. I...More
The good part is the building itself is quite beautiful. But it pretty much ends there.
We had a so-so room that definitely did not feel like it was an 5-star room, and that paled in comparison to other Rocco Forte properties. The bathroom was...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.

We headed to the old town for lunch but Hadrians is attached and I was tempted by room service as the menu was reasonable. If the weather is nice you can't beat a stroll to the old town and I recommend the outsider. I would avoid all chain restaurants Edinburgh has so many lovely boutique restaurants to enjoy
