    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

    If you booked it with breakfast then yes, however they offer breakfast in bed for a fixed price. Each room will have a card hanging on the door which you mark off the items you would like then you hang it outside by 2am.
