bold design & distinct comfort

A modern take on Baronial materiality and composition provides the inspiration behind our unique guest rooms. Natural materials such as white oak and textured stone provide a tactile canvas for modern design classics, alongside custom-made furniture and handcrafted pieces. Charming wooden shutters are inspired by the original window fixtures of the historic Old Town and create a warm, homely atmosphere, which is further encouraged by the use of fabric wallpaper and soft woollen accents. Guest room bathrooms have been designed as modern ante-rooms, finished in luxurious marble, featuring solid stone basins and rainfall showers by Via Bizzuno accompanied with amenities by vegan brand, Votary. 

Fabulous hotel and experience

Fabulous hotel!!! The beds are amazing, the top floor lounge is warm with fires when it’s cool and great drinks and food. The outdoor patio has an amazing view with blankets to keep the chill away. The staff is friendly helpful and truly want to make your stay the best it can be. And the location is perfect!! Just up one close to royal mile and one block from park to new town. LOVED IT!!!
