I'd been to Edinburgh a few times before and stayed in the Balmoral, which was fabulous, and other hotels. I chose the Glasshouse becuase it was also convenient to the train station and had pictures of a wonderful courtyard overlooking Calton hill. I was very surprised that this hotel nestled next to the old playhouse had such an incredible view....

From arrival, we were made to feel welcome. The service received from all members of staff was impeccable. I was made to feel special, I felt like a film star for the day. 5 class service from start to finish. The hotel is beautiful, peaceful, luxurious, just perfect in every way. Can't wait to return in the future.

Stayed here for the first time for 2 nights last week. Amazing beautiful hotel, fantastic staff, great location. Stayed in a Studio Suite that overlooked the garden, loved having some outside space. Well worth every penny, can't wait to go back.

I stayed at The Glasshouse for two nights in March. Having stayed in many 5 star hotels in the past, I have to say this hotel ranks in the top five! The suite we had was reminiscent of a New York City loft! The bathroom was luxurious with a soaking tub and separate shower. (Also heated floors!). And our deck...

Staying in Broughton & Calton

Neighbourhood Profile
Broughton & Calton
Lying where grandiose New Town townhouses give way to malls and utilitarian housing, Broughton and Calton have long been transitional neighbourhoods 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 epicentre 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.
