Superb room with balcony, great location in the old town, just by Greyfriars. Relaxed unobtrusive staff, fine food and wine. Very enjoyable. Hotel is an old building and a bit of a warren hence need to wait at reception to be guided to room -...More
I visited HDV for lunch as part of a gift I had received. The service I received was excellent and the food was very nice. I opted for the moules and fries and then the pear and almond tart. I was decidedly unimpressed with desert....More

Few Edinburghers live in the Old Town, but its labyrinth of dank alleys and steep streets suggests this was not always the case. Today, it’s mostly visitors, tartan-flavoured souvenir shops, and pipers that you’ll find on its cobbled streets. This is the place to get a feel for Auld Reekie (Old Smelly), as the town was once nicknamed, and stroll the Royal Mile, the thoroughfare that links the castle with the
royal palace – two of Edinburgh’s great set-piece attractions. But there’s lots more exploring to do here down dozens of little alleys, or wynds, while at night the city’s busiest clubs erupt along the Cowgate which is closed to traffic for this purpose.
