Edinburgh New Town location, butler service, breakfast in bed and afternoon tea in the lounge, this place is a real treat.
On arrival the staff are welcoming and a butler quickly comes to help with your baggage. While the details of your booking are confirmed the butler takes you through to the lounge where you are offered complimentary tea or coffee.
This hotel feels more like entering the town house of someone who likes the nice things in life. The decor is in keeping with the property period with patterned wall papers, dark wood furniture and some character pieces such as the Whisky cabinet in the main lounge, which is locked.
The bedrooms are all en-suite and range from well appointed doubles, to suites that have their own front door and role top baths. The meals are good, the breakfast was from a wide choice of locally sourced produce and the afternoon tea is sublime.
The key to the hotel is its butler service which is included in the price as is any tea or coffee that is delivered to your room. The butler service extends to dinner and breakfast in your room, help with baggage, travel arrangement, nothing seems too much effort.
