We arrived jet lagged and a wee bit disoriented to the beautiful Nira Caledonia. It was a restful, fun stay for our family. The dinner was exceptional, the room service breakfast an amazing treat and the location was perfect. We easily walked to the castle and Royal Mile and were able to get away from the crowds in the other...

I was enticed to book this place principally due to the attractive terraced architecture and the chance to try something different to the bigger Edinburgh hotels that I often frequent. The set up is a little peculiar as the houses that make up the hotel don't interconnect, so you could end up having to exit onto the street in order...

We booked 2 nights here, for before and after a tour. Very disappointed on arrival to be told they were overbooked (they must have accepted the booking?) and that they had booked us in another hotel (see review of Crowne Plaza Edinburgh, which our taxi driver had difficulty locating due to confusion about the hotel name ). Fortunately our 2nd...

Its nice and calm place , It is situated just 10minutes walk from Princess St (The main shopping/city centre), but located in a residential area, so you don’t get the noise and hustle of the city centre! A carefully thought idea! The hotel is occupied over two buildings, so it gives a real homely feeling as you tap in with...

Stayed in Stockbridge Suite which is very comfortable. Delicious breakfast included in the price. All the staff were friendly and helpful. Particular mention for Neil the barman who made my French Martini. Would love to stay again.

We stayed at the Nira Caledonia at the end of our 9 day trip around Scotland and it was the perfect end to our time there.

Staying in Stockbridge & Dean Village

Neighbourhood Profile
Stockbridge & Dean Village
Just downhill of New Town and attractively straddling a river near the elegant Royal Botanic Garden, it’s small wonder that Stockbridge became one of the city’s first hip neighbourhoods. It’s now one of Edinburgh’s most desirable, though many bohemian touches have fallen away as its residents have matured and the area has gentrified. Some second-hand shops cling on, but mostly residents display refined tastes in basement bistros, gastropubs, coffee and antique shops, boutiques and delis and at the Sunday farmers' market. A pleasant ten-minute walk away, along a leafy riverside path beside the gurgling Water of Leith, lies Dean Village. This sleepy neighborhood of medieval half-timbered houses still retains much of the village feel it had when watermills plied their trade here. Beyond, the wooded riverside path feels even more remote as it climbs to the sculpture gardens of the Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Nira Caledonia is surrounded by the cobbled streets and Georgian elegance of New Town, a short stroll from Princes Street, Nira Caledonia is a central yet peaceful Edinburgh retreat. Amid the plush pelmets, rich textures and original cornices you'll find flat-screen televisions, Nespresso coffee machines, complimentary Wi-Fi and iPod docking stations. You'll find warm, heartfelt service and a cool, quirky style. Each of our sumptuous rooms and suites is unique, with its own opulent character. Many have vast floor-to-ceiling sash windows, others open out onto a private garden and some feature a relaxing Jacuzzi. All have new ultra-comfortable beds and pillows of goose feather and down. As a protected Grade A building we don't have a lift, but our porters are always on hand and we offer 24-hour room service. The cuisine at our restaurant is natural, fresh and often organic, with ingredients farmed, caught, raised or bred in Scotland and with over 25 Scotch whiskey blends and single malts, our bar also focuses on local flavours. With a friendly touch - and a touch of theatre - we welcome independent-minded travellers who prefer to go their own way. Come our way. ... more   less
