It is the only hotel in the city to boast views of Edinburgh Castle, The Firth of Forth, Leith, Princes Street and Calton Hill... all of which are within walking distance.

The hotel was converted from the Scotsman Newspaper's baronial offices and is now equipped with a state-of-the-art Spa and cinema... while the food served at our North Bridge Brasserie is among the best in Scotland.
