In Edinburgh for work midweek. Arrived and was promptly upgraded from a single room to one of their doubles. Found myself in a very spacious, very purple room with high ceilings, a lovely modern en-suite with enormous walk in shower and lovely view across to...More
Located at corner of New Town. Walking distance to Old Town. Had a single room with external bathroom which was rather awkward having to get out of bedroom to walk to the bathroom down the hallway. Bathroom was somewhat as big as the bedroom (or...More
Arrived in the evening. This hotel has 4/5 car parking spaces at the back. I was lucky enough to get one, otherwise I've no idea what I would have done. It's very expensive as it's city centre

The hotel is nice, don't get me wrong. But it clearly has aged without any refurbishment being carried out. Having said this, check-in was smooth and the room was clean and tidy.
Rooms are very spacious, as is the bathroom. The main common areas in...More

United Kingdom > Scotland > Edinburgh > 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.
