We stayed one night here while we took our German friend on a tour of Edinburgh. Being right on the Royal Mile itself made it ideally situated to see Edinburgh's fascinating city centre. There are only nine bedrooms which means the hotel is never overcrowded with tourists. The rooms themselves are beautifully decorated and the fittings are all luxury quality....

We had one night in Edinburgh and chose this hotel due to proximity to the train station. We were greatly impressed with the staff, room, and area. The hotel rooms are above a bar/restaurant and the bar manager checked us in, helped with our bags to the next floor and gave us a tour of all the amenities in the...

We were thrilled to be in this hotel until we found out that the room was at the top of seemingly endless stairs. I could just about manage it, but my husband could not. Thank you, Dougie, for finding us another hotel so quickly and getting us there. We certainly enjoyed the beer and the atmosphere and the nap!

I love the location of this hotel, it's the best spot in Edinburgh - right in the centre of the Royal Mile. The building from the outside looks so full of character, old and quirky, fits in completely with thestyle and history of Edinburgh.

This is easily one of the best hotels I've stayed in. Every last design decision is tasteful and sophisticated. The bathroom was incredible with a free standing soaking tub and speaker system where you can attach your phone. The food at the bar/restaurant was great and there was excellent live music the night we stayed. Would love to go back!

Only had a 1 night layover in Edi. This property was perfect. Quick hike up from Waverly and the corner of Main and Main. Easy access the next day to the rental cars. Wish I had been staying an extra day or two. Many thanks to Douggie and the rest of the staff!!

Staying in Old Town

Neighbourhood Profile
Old Town
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.
