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.

We had an issue with a rental and desperately needed a hotel in in the area. The Courtyard by Marriott was full so they sent us up the street to the Glasshouse. It was an appallingly high rate for one night which did not include breakfast of an sort. The room was small with

Dear Judith R, Thank you for sharing your feedback. I'm sorry to read that the stay and our facilities were not according to your expectations. All our rooms are however furnished with wood material, with exception of the garden furniture that I'm glad to inform is expected to be replaced this year. We are glad however that the bed meet the expectations of comfort. Kind regards, Andre Sa Castro Front Office Manager
