Why choose luxury hotels in Edinburgh?

Famous for its historical castle and beautiful landscape, Scotland's capital is steeped in culture and is a must-see destination. The city has the highest concentration of listed buildings in the world from those around the Royal Mile to the elegant Georgian facades in New Town. Many of these buildings are now luxury hotels and they really immerse you in the rich heritage that is weaved into the cobbled streets. The city plays host to a number of events throughout the year, with its liveliest period being in August during the Edinburgh Festival Fringe, the world's largest arts festival. The festival brings together comedy, dance, music and theatre, featuring many up-and-coming artists as well as established stars. As the winter draws closer it's time to start planning for Edinburgh's Hogmanay, where New Year's Eve is celebrated in true Scottish style with a huge party on Princes Street. Stepping in from the cold, you will be please that you've booked into one of our luxury hotels Edinburgh so you can get warm in front of an open fireplace when you return from the festivities.
