By train: Glasgow Queens Street to Edinburgh Waverley takes around 50 minutes, it's 3 hours from Manchester Piccadilly and 4 hours 45 minutes from London Kings Cross - after which, it's a 5-minute walk to the hotel. Book trains to Edinburgh.
CHARACTER & STYLE
The hotel comprises an original Georgian townhouse and modern extension, although you'll struggle to tell the difference between the two from the interior as the charcoal grey, aubergine and ruby red colour scheme sweeps throughout.
Staff are young and confident with buckets of enthusiasm. There's a glamorour bar and small bright pink lounge. There's no on-site parking, but you do receive a generous 40 per cent discount at a nearby car park.
