My wife and I recently stayed at One Royal Circus. It is within easy reach to all of central Edinburgh, including Edinburgh Castle, which was approximately a 30 minute uphill walk away, so take sensible shoes to see Edinburgh at it's best. It is a home from home and very relaxed environment. Not to give a false impression, in our... More

This is probably the best B&B I have ever stayed in, and it is also the most expensive. The rooms are meticulously maintained, and the access to all the public areas meant that you weren't confined to your room if you wanted a change of scenery. Christina prepared a lovely breakfast from a fairly lengthy menu, and the kitchen was... More

This is not your typical B&B this is more, the house is elegant, the service wonderful and the rooms are like best hotel rooms. We were group of people going to a brithday party in Edinburgh and we all stayed at the One Royal Circus, we couldnt have found better place to stay.

The Hotel or B&B is a five bed mansion house in a beautiful crescent in trendy Sotckbridge. Guests are allowed the run of the place which is beautifully designed, with a blend of traditional and modern furniture. The walls are decorated with huge original, 1960's French Poster ads. You can make yourself a cuppa in the kitchen, have a game... More

What an amazing place. All of the reviews we read were right - a typical Newtown Edinburgh property with high ceilings and Georgian windows. You instantly feel at home and are encouraged to slip off your shoes and curl up on the couch in the lounge room with a glass of wine, beer or a soft drink and watch the... More

Home Again. In early November after five years absence we returned to Edinburgh and One Royal Circus. This is our third stay at One Royal Circus (fourth if you count our 2007 trip when we started and ended our three week in Scotland at One Royal Circus). Obviously, we enjoy One Royal Circus and after five years it is just... More

this is the best B&B I have stayed in the past few years! Beautiful designed rooms, excellent breakfast, even Scottish and Continental and great facilities inside the building for our use. I was there during the Fringe festival for four nights together with my family and we will definitely come back again. Thank you Mike, Susan and your staff for... More

My friend and I spent a wonderful couple of days here and LOVED it. I plan to take my husband next time for a romantic couple of nights! Everything was brilliant. The location (5-10 minute walk from the city centre). The building - awesome but oh so comfortable. The ambience, grand but intimate too. The breakfast rooom and lounge providing... More

We stayed at One Royal Circus while taking our son to Edinburgh University. Since he is on a four year course, I will be taking every opportunity to return in order to stay here again! We were welcomed by Carrie, who showed us around the house and said to make ourselves at home - which we did! Great room, lots... More

We really could not recommend this accommodation highly enough. We chose to stay here for our wedding night on the recommendation of friends and family and we were so impressed with the level of service, luxury and comfort. The room was wonderful, with an extremely comfortable bed and an outstanding bathroom and lounge area. There is a lounge for guests... More

Staying in New Town

Neighborhood Profile
New Town
Suits and shopping bags rule the streets of New Town, until after dark when strappy dresses come out to play. This is the city’s central business district with its smaller offices, clothes boutiques, and many of the city’s flashiest restaurants and ritziest clubs. The architecture along roads like George Street helps give it a swank and formal feel: it’s a planned Georgian development of regal townhouses, geometric squares, and self-important statues. But it’s also a very wanderable neighborhood, with a healthy bustle at almost any time of day and fine people-watching in places like St Andrew's Square which fills with picnickers around lunch. You’ll also find a series of cheerful basement bistros on Hanover Street, while dark Rose Street has something of the feel of an undiscovered back alley and is chock-full of characterful pubs and small independent shops.
