We caught a train up to Scotland, great experience, and wanted a hotel close to station so no taxi required. This one is perfect with its own lift straight onto the street behind Waverley station. Lovely hotel, we stayed twice in June. First 2 nights...More

Stayed in a triple room. Rooms were lovely. Clean and spacious. Staff very helpful. Spa and pool were great. Would definitely return. Very central for sight seeing and restaurants but still quiet area with a lovely feel. Good value for money for location.
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.
