A very comfortable hotel well-placed in a quiet and pleasing location close to the private art galleries and within easy reach of Princes Street. Staff were friendly, unobtrusive and helpful. A happy find and very reasonably priced.

Wonderful 3 nights... staff very friendly, the room was great with all facilities we needed...Hair dyer, iron and ironing board, television, kettle etc and the coffee machine was an added extra! The bed was very comfy and free Wifi was a bonus!

Short break made all the more enjoyable by the excellent accommodation, service and location of the Royal Scots. Really could not have wanted more, perfect location just far enough away from town for nominal exercise after the night before but close enough to return to when needed, overall the hotel and the staff made the break memorable 😃😃

We've had a lovely weekend in Edinburgh. The Royal Scots Club is in a great location for sightseeing in Edinburgh, only a short walk from Princes Street. The room was nice and spacious, with a powerful shower! Ideal after spending a day walking! Good quality breakfast.

Excellent location for a home from home break. Throughly enjoyed the food and the traditional high tea. Breakfast was also second to none. The only thing missing in my other halves eyes was a gym / Swimming pool.

If they hoover properly and have a fair breakfast policy, they are the best hotel I have ever stayed in! And I travel A LOT. Love the details, the care and ventilator, ironboard, hairdryer and all the coffee, chocolate, water and tea in the room every day

It is only by chance that my mother and I happened to stay here on our all-girls-trip, but we still haven't stopped talking about how lucky we were. The premises are warm and welcoming and the neighbourhood is quiet and beautyful, yet close to everything. The real attraction, though, is the staff who were very kind and helpful and admirably...

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.
