Excellent room with a very comfortable bed. The room was very clean and spacious. The service was very good without being obtrusive. The breakfast was really good quality with plenty of choice. This hotel is excellent value for money.

Two night stay. Centre of town. Full of character and well maintained. Very comfortable. I recommend for both business and vacation. For business use breakfast should start at 7am or 7.15. Would have liked stronger coffee. Nonetheless highly recommended.

We stayed at the Royal Scots club some 14 years ago and thought the place was wonderful, it’s changed, for the better. With up-graded bathrooms and the big high ceilings it is a real pleasure to stay there. The staff are friendly and efficient and very helpful when it comes to information about Edinburgh. Some people may find it a...

A very interesting, characterful environment. I enjoyed a comfortable room and the service of pleasant staff in a very convenient location at a sensible price due to the reciprocal arrangement with my Club in London.

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.
