A very plleasant stay, thank you, a real hidden gem, excellent accommodation food and service. Only a ten minute walk to the Royal mile and a good range of restaurants. We are looking forward to our next stay in November.

Breakfast was always good, with great service. Didn't like the check-in service very much and thought a friendlier welcome would have been nice. The location is pretty good. Would return on our next visit to Edinburgh.

Stayed as a couple for three nights at the end of October, It was in a great location and only a 10 minute walk to Princes Street and the Playhouse theatre. Excellent breakfast served at your table on hot plates.

had a great stay for our first couple nights in Scotland. Great location with clean quiet room. We couldn't eat lunch because it required a coat and tie and none of us brought one but the included breakfast was great and the bar was excellent too.

Very good value for money and great location . I like the building and atmosphere. Wearing a jacket aand tie in the bar and restaurant is a bit inconvenient for non business visitors . I have stayed here many times .

This proved to be an excellent choice for an overnight stay at short notice in Edinburgh. The room was very well equipped, with hairdryer, iron & ironing board in addition to all the expected facilities. A lift from the ground floor provided easy access to bedrooms for those with bags to carry. Breakfast choices were good, as was table service.

As a group of friends we stayed for only one night and were very satisfied indeed. The property is lovely - public areas all comfortable, tasteful and steeped in WW1 memorabilia (fascinating for any historian). The bedrooms were extremely comfortable and with Molton Brown toiletries a lovely touch. Breakfast was excellent and served in a bright and beautiful dining room...

Super food and service for a party of 26. Everybody expressed their delight. I am sure many of us will return in the future. If you are in Edinburgh I can highly recommend this Club. Go on lines and look at the menu options.

Staying in New Town

Neighbourhood Profile
New Town
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.
