Located in Edinburgh’s city centre is the Crowne Plaza Edinburgh – Royal Terrace with stunning views towards the Firth of Forth. The hotel is part of an impressive terrace of prestigious Georgian townhouses with many of the original features. We have recently undergone a renovation. Each space at the Royal Terrace has been sympathetically designed to achieve a fine balance of modernity and tradition. A Celtic thread weaves through the interiors, with subtle indigenous design motifs informing the design narrative. Thistles motifs and highland wall linings provide cultured Hibernian undertones to the lounge bar. The restaurant provides a refined contemporary setting drawing inspirations from Edinburgh’s royal botanical gardens, sunflower walls and an alfresco feel provide a light, bright atmosphere which compliments the darker, amber tones of the adjacent lounge, lobby and bar. Our rooms are warm and contemporary creating a relaxing space for your Edinburgh stay.

Neighborhood
Broughton & Calton
Lying where grandiose New Town townhouses give way to malls and utilitarian housing, Broughton and Calton have long been transitional neighborhoods with a mixed identity. It’s here that Edinburgh’s gay village found a home in the 1980s. But gay culture is anything but overt along bustling epicenter Broughton Street; even if polished pubs, hip bistros, smart delis and art galleries all speak of affluent good taste. The top of Leith Walk is more ragged. This major thoroughfare boasts a famously gritty gay club, as well as a strip of good Indian restaurants. Regal Georgian and Victorian townhouses preside over largely deserted streets in Calton, where only the occasional restaurant or hotel brings much life. Even so, a steady trickle of idlers and picnickers pass by to climb Calton Hill for its wide-open lawns, wonderful city views, and curious monuments – an Athenian-style temple among them.

Stayed at this hotel in the past but not since it had it’s refurb. The hotel was in need of a small facelift and they’ve definitely done a good job. I stayed in a King Deluxe room which was a very large room and had a lovely high ceiling. Access to the club lounge was

Despite the recent renovation, the lobby, lounge and bar area struck me as a bit dingy. The room and restaurant were however much fresher and light in appearance. Service was friendly, the staff were helpful. Our room was in the basement, which although quiet, wasn't as nice

The first feeling will be somewhat uncanny if you are not accustomed with such old buildings in Europe. Soon you will start enjoying it. I must say that i had some hiccups at first. The basement rooms were not good at all. So always try to get rooms at the upper floors and

Let’s be honest when booking hotels nowadays you tend to get a whole bunch of similar hotels at a similar price. What sets some apart from others is the staff. Myself and my pregnant wife stayed at this hotel for one night for our wedding anniversary and I have to say the
