The Witchery Suites

Castlehill, Edinburgh EH12NF 0131 225 5613

We say

Nine indulgent, exuberant and other-worldly overnight suites linked to the Witchery by the Castle restaurant and located close to it in the upper reaches of the Old Town. If anything, the rooms are more theatrical than the restaurant, with extravagant gothic decor, antique furniture, four-poster beds, velvet drapes and roll-top baths with room for two.

Simply Magical! ★★★★★

What a glorious place to stay. It was like stepping back in time and Roxy was the perfect introduction to the magic of the Witchery. He guided us through our stay at the Sempill Suite and made sure that everything was to our satisfaction. He went above and beyond and is an absolute gem - the spirit of the Witchery! What a fabulous set of rooms the Sempill suite is. They comprise a kitchen, dining room and bedroom - all lavishly decorated and utterly magical. A bottle of champagne was chilling on our arrival complete with cookies and chocolate. The continental breakfast hamper was served absolutely on time in the dining room in our suite and Roxy was not wrong when he described it as a feast. Thank you for a fabulous stay. We will be back!

Once in a lifetime ★★★★★

Opulent, over the top, glamorous, possibly haunted and very definitely the most romantic place to stay in the city, possibly the world. You get an entire suite to yourself - a decadent bedroom, huge bathroom, sitting room and kitchen. I have stayed twice, once on honeymoon and again five years later for a birthday trip. It only takes a look in the visitors books to realise that this is a place for special occasions - honeymoons, proposals, wedding anniversaries, birthdays...however if you are of a nervous disposition, like me, don't read the comments about ghostly visitors. It's hard to imagine room for anyone else anyway, in amongst the velvet drapes, cushions, huge baths, bottles of champagne and chocolate. Breakfast is brought to your sitting room in a wicker hamper to enjoy at your leisure. You can opt for a cooked breakfast in the Witchery restaurant, but you'll be charged extra and anyway it's fun to set everything out on the table complete with fresh coffee, cocottes of porridge and ribbon-wrapped linen napkins.
