We chose this inn to have a pre-theatre meal. MY daughter, my grandaughter and myself all chose a basic selection, scampi, chicken pie and macaroni. I dont think i have ever seen scampi burnt so badly, aswell as so scarce, 5 pieces of scampi is very tight, especially when its burnt beyond recognision. As for the chicken pie, it looked...

My husband and I spent a night here in November on a visit to Edinburgh to do some Christmas shopping. It is about a 5 minute walk from Princes street. No hotel parking but a 24 hour NCP car park is just across the road. The room (up 2 flights of stairs) was large, shabby chic in style and very...

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.

“Room number 1 faces the main street. Watch the world go by! It is effectively on the second floor.”
