The Roxburgh hotel has had a refurb, very masculine. It's also changed its name to the Principal. Unfortunately no street sign to warn visitors who booked into the Rox. And gmaps take you to hoardings in rose street with no entrance. Refurb looks good at...More
The hotel has been undergoing extensive renovations and our suite was a capacious first floor room overlooking charlotte square. The designers probably need to have their fees slashed but it was comfortable bed and people don't go to Edinburgh at festival time to spend it...More
Three colleagues and I went for a lovely spa day at the Roxburghe. Started off with glass of prossecco and trays of cut fruit, us lying on the day beds in a relaxing atmosphere. Swim, sauna and steam, then full body massage. I have had...More
Overall good day. All the staff in the 'Spa part' of the Roxburghe Hotel were very friendly and helpful. Particularly Jenna, who could not be better at what she does. Amazing massage and perfect manner. That said, the staff we encountered upstairs in the main...More
We stayed here for 2 nights and we were so glad we did. The location is perfect, right next to Rose Street and a 5 minute walk from all the main city attractions. The room itself was beautifully decorated and the bathroom was fantastic.
I spent one night in what was apparently a newly refurbished Superior Double room, and it was indeed very tastefully done, and plenty of plug sockets - one of my bugbears! Bathroom was also very nicely decorated and suitably equipped (toothpaste and brush available from...More
Afternoon tea was fabulous, loads of choice and the staff here were great. However the real let down was Dani who works in the spa.

Swimming pool, sauna, steam room quite dliapidated and requires significant refurbishment and not what you would expect for this star standard hotel.
Changing rooms even worse with skirting boards coming off in toilet and quite dirty.
The spa day and treatment was fine but far...More
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 clubs. The architecture along roads like George Street helps give it a swank and formal feel: it’s a planned Georgian development of regal townhouses, geometric
squares, and self-important statues. But it’s also a very wanderable neighbourhood, with a healthy bustle at almost any time of day and fine people-watching in places like St Andrew's Square which fills with picnickers around lunch. You’ll also find a series of cheerful basement bistros on Hanover Street, while dark Rose Street has something of the feel of an undiscovered back alley and is chock-full of characterful pubs and small independent shops.
