    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

    Georgian development of regal townhouses, geometric

    According to google maps we are 15 minutes walk from Waverly Bridge. There is a good public transport link from the train station to the hotel. The local bus services 23 and 27 will get you here in under 10 minutes.
