Edinburgh - Old Town

Why We Like It

  • The #1 hotel in Scotland(!). (So says Conde Nast Traveller, and who are we to argue?) Afternoon Tea is a can’t-miss.
  • Unique rooms give a nod to the hotel’s past life as a publishing house (former home of The Scotsman newspaper).
  • There’s a marble bathroom, stocked in-room minibar, plus semi-secret hatch for private room service deliveries.
  • Print Room bar is popular with the locals. Channel your inner JK Rowling and pen notes for your next novel as you sip.

Had some issues checking in, but was quickly sorted and changed to a different room. Bed was large and medium-firm with great pillows. Shower was amazing, overhead rain-style head.

No view from room. Awful common areas. Brusque staff.
