6 Gloucester Place, Edinburgh
- Boutique hotel in Georgian townhouse
- Luxuriously decorated rooms
- Desirable New Town location
- Part of UNESCO World Heritage Site
Part of a beautiful row of Georgian townhouses, the Nira Caledonia hotel sits on the border of Edinburgh’s New Town and Stockbridge areas. Surrounded by cobbled streets and neo-classical elegance, it is part of central Edinburgh’s UNESCO World Heritage Site.
While the building’s Georgian heritage is part of Nira Caledonia’s charm, the hotel’s stylish decor is elegantly contemporary, bohemian even. Free WiFi, iPod docking stations and Jacuzzis are the order of the day rather than tartan and stuffed deer heads.
A short walk from Princes Street, Nira Caledonia is well placed for exploring the city centre and offers luxurious, boutique accommodation in one of Edinburgh’s most sought after areas.
Stylish New Town hotel
Although individually decorated, the rooms at Edinburgh’s Nira Caledonia hotel share a certain lavish theme. Period features such as original cornicing are standard to most rooms along with flat screen TVs, WiFi, iPod docking stations, Nespresso coffee machines, luxury toiletries and 24-hour room service.
From the comfortable, intimate single rooms via the executive rooms up to the suites, the rooms become progressively more luxurious.
Some of the rooms have access to a private garden while the three Jacuzzi suites are quite stunning and understandably popular with couples enjoying a romantic break.
If you are looking for unique accommodation that blends Edinburgh heritage with 21st century comfort than Nira Caledonia on Edinburgh’s Gloucester Place should be top of the list.
Scottish restaurant in Edinburgh’s New Town
Blackwood’s Bar and Grill is at the heart of Nira Caledonia in Edinburgh’s New Town. Scottish ingredients take pride of place on the menu, many of them cooked on the kitchen’s charcoal burning Josper grill, a method which imparts a delicate smoky flavour.
Fresh and often organic, popular ingredients include beef raised in the Highlands; rare-breed pork and lamb from the rolling hills of the Scottish borders and fish from the Highland lochs and North Sea.
With over 25 Scotch whisky blends and single malts, the bar also focuses on local flavours.
As well as dinner, afternoon tea is popular at Nira Caledonia. Think along the lines of a delicious selection of sandwiches, freshly baked scones with clotted cream and jam, a selection of cakes and chocolate, all served with freshly brewed tea or coffee. For that extra touch of decadence, a glass of champagne is always a civilised way to round off afternoon tea at the Nira Caledonia hotel in Edinburgh.
What’s on in Edinburgh
The Nira Caledonia hotel is a ten minute walk from Edinburgh city centre and ideally located to see all that this great capital city has to offer.
The August festivals and Edinburgh Military Tattoo are hugely popular as is Edinburgh’s Hogmanay or New Year celebrations. All year round attractions include Edinburgh Castle, the Palace of Holyrood House, the Royal Mile and the city’s attractive shopping options, including a branch of Harvey Nicks.
Alternatively, ask the staff at Edinburgh’s Nira Caledonia Hotel to organise a game on one of the nearby Championship golf courses or perhaps a distillery tour of the Highlands.
