Stay in style at one of the city’s luxury hotels as you explore the famous streets and attractions of the Scottish capital.

Like Edinburgh born author Robert Louis Stevenson’s famous novel Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde, the iconic centre of Edinburgh has two distinct sides. The difference here being that both the Old and the New Town are absolutely lovely.

Old and New

Often considered a masterpiece of city planning, construction of Edinburgh’s New Town began at the end of the 18th Century. Cultural highlights include the Scottish National Portrait Gallery on Queen Street and the Royal Botanic Gardens on Arboretum Place.

For an unforgettable luxury city break, book yourself a 5 star accommodation in Edinburgh.
