City hotel

Very disappointed with our stay. General cleanliness of hotel poor. Stains on decorative cushions on bed, hair in bath, plug hole dirty in sink and just generally not spotless. Confetti under bed, dust everywhere. No air con in room and it was a boiling hot day. Had to wedge windows open with books as rope on sash window broken. Considering the amount we paid for 1 night, we will not be rushing back. Radiator covers not attached to wall and fell over at one point when I accidentally brushed against it. Breakfast portions enormous and not very tasty. Tea and toast cold, food salty and generally disappointing.

Beautiful hotel

Pros: Fantastic location, gorgeous rooms, very pleasant staff. Overall a fantastic stay.
Cons: Rooms were a little small and glasses were not removed from room during house keeping.
Location: Everything in Edinburgh is walking distance from here. Botanic Gardens in right behind the hotel.

Thanks for your feedback, great to read you liked our Stockbridge location. As a listed and protected building we are not allowed to change the structure of our building and therefore do not have an elevator for the same reason sometimes the layout of our rooms is a little different. Despite the small issue with housekeeping we certainly look forward to welcoming you back. Chris and the Nira Caledonia team.

Das Hotel ist mit ein wenig laufen verbunden bis zu den Sehenswürdigkeiten, allerdings hat gerade das uns sehr gefallen, so hatten wir tagsüber für kurze Zwischenstopps oder nachts immer Ruhe! Das Personal war sehr freundlich, hilfsbereit und ist auf jeden Wunsch eingegangen. Wir hatten das Zimmer ganz oben und von da aus einen wunderschönen weiten Ausblick über den Norden von Edinburgh! Wir kommen sicher wieder!
