Royal Terrace Hotel

4 star rating 18 Royal Terrace Calton Hill

Edinburgh City Centre Lothian EH7 5AQ

From the stone cherub peeing in the fountain to the mature, peaty character of the Aberlour Suite, this four-star hotel captures both the playfulness and elegance of a weekend in Edinburgh New Town.

The stone cherub tinkling in the fountain should offer a glimpse of both the opulence and sense of tradition that defines this luxury Georgian Townhouse in the New Town district of Edinburgh.

Whilst the hotel is likely to appeal more to more conservative travellers than the brasher Malmaison in Leith, there’s a quiet strength in the design that is significantly more in keeping with the royal character of the capital.

In many ways it’s the difference between a cognac and a fortified wine. Check out the glass bathroom in the Aberlour Suite – a bright, spacious room with a standalone bathtub in the centre of the room with views to the Firth of the Forth.
