The Edinburgh experience in a hotel

This hotel is the former location of the newspaper the Scotsman. It has now been turned into a chic boutique hotel with amazing views out over North Bridge in the city. We stayed for three nights during the Edinburgh Fringe, and were impressed with all the features of this hotel. The rooms are packed full of features, yet retained their charm of ages. The breakfast service is discrete and the buffet is plentiful and topped up frequently. The small bar has a wide selection of drinks and some real ales of which we sampled. read hotel review
