On arrival at the hotel we were awed by the beauty of the Loch Lomond room. Check in was easy and we were shown to our room by the lovely receptionist. The room was vast and had a lovely modern twist. The bathroom looked beautiful with the blue lighting and the waterfall shower. Wasn't till we had spent some time...

Very disappointed, luckily got this as a cheap deal. Our room was on the top floor, up 2 main flights of stair then through a door to the last flight, the smell in this stairwell was horrible, musty, dirty smell! Our room was ok, best feature being the large shower, decor, fixtures and fittings all very tired, bed and bedside...

Stayed for my husbands birthday. Birthday card in room and rose petals on the bed, nice touch. Executive room, good size, lovely bathroom with extra large shower head which was great but sadly lacking in power, possibly due to being on the 2nd floor. Complimentary fresh milk in mini bar which is a touch we always appreciate. Mini bar well...

Very spacious and modern hotel. From all the hotels I've been to of this price range ( £50/£60 ) this one is breathtaking. You even wonder if you are at the correct place. The hotel is relatively small, only few rooms, and it truly adds character to the property. The location is very convenient too, a short 10min walk will...

This hotel is in a great location about 5-10 minutes walk from Waverley train station. We stayed for Hogmanay 2016/17 (which we can thoroughly recommend) and stayed in the Loch Tay room on the top floor. No lifts so don't bring lots of luggage (although the staff do help). It's an old building, well-modernised. Small bar on ground floor (which...

My wife and I treated ourselves to a night away for Christmas to sample the delights of Edinburgh.

Staying in Broughton & Calton

Neighbourhood Profile
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.
