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.

Firstly, the staff are nice and the finish is boutique and expensive. Nothing had to say there. We were given a lovely big room with an amazing view to the rear of the building. The decor is modern and it feels very executive.

Now for the downside. If you are on the top floor t

The only real drawback was not realizing that there is no elevator and we were on the top floor which meant lugging our heavy suitcases up two flights on arrival (after a long train trip from London made longer by track work) and then lugging them down again on departure. The roo

Hi can I check what difference is in the superior and executive rooms?
Good afternoon, Superior rooms are the smaller of our rooms in the hotel and are located on the 1st and 2nd floor. Executive rooms offer our guests that little bit more space to relax, unwind and pamper in the comfort of the luxurious surroundings and are located on the 2nd and 3rd floor of our Georgian Townhouse. Kind regards, Reception
