1 Princes Street Edinburgh EH2 2EQ 0131 556 2414
Not only the best five-star hotel in Edinburgh, but perhaps the finest luxury hotel in any Scottish city. They get it all right here, as they have been doing since 1902, with sublime service and a can-do culture at the heart of all aspects of the hotel, from their Michelin starred restaurant, Number One, through to the whisky bar that they added in 2013 (one of Scotland's finest) and on to the switched-on front desk and concierge staff. They cater for everyone here, including families with a cute 'Kiddie Concierge' service that lets wee ones 'check in' and then enjoy a treasure hunt around this grand historic hotel and all its nooks and crannies. Be sure to book a room or palatial suite with a sweeping view of Edinburgh Castle – there are many to choose to from. Downstairs a swimming pool and spa awaits, the latter boasting a range of superb ESPA treatments and some of the most skilled therapists in Edinburgh.
