Edinburgh’s Nira Caledonia hotel has refreshingly clear ideas on interior decor: no tartan, no stuffed deer heads and no prints of Bonnie Prince Charlie.
Part of a row of gorgeous Georgian townhouses in the New Town, the boutique hotel prefers to blend Bohemian chic with contemporary comfort.
Amid the plush pelmets, rich textures and original cornices, you’ll find flat-screen televisions, Nespresso coffee machines and iPod docking stations.
Warm, heartfelt service and a cool, quirky style are the icing on the cake.
We’re not the only ones who think that Nira Caledonia is the bee’s knees.
It won the Best City Hotel in Scotland award at the latest Scottish Hotel Awards.
Enjoy all that Nira Caledonia has to offer with today’s Big Deal on an overnight stay with dinner and breakfast in a Petite Double room.
Available seven days a week, the offer is for two people to enjoy an overnight stay in a gorgeous Petite Double room with late check-out to 1pm.
The offer includes a two course dinner from the table d’hôte menu as well as a bottle of house wine to share.
Individually decorated and with original period features, the Petite Double rooms have free Wi-Fi, a flat-screen multi-channel television; DVD player, iPod docking station and a Nespresso machine serving a range of Grands Crus coffee.
The beds feature 2000 pocket springs with deep sumptuous fillings and the pillows are duck feather and down. Add in a quiet New Town address and a good night’s sleep looks very likely.
Fresh, Scottish ingredients
As well as a full Scottish breakfast, this offer includes a two course table d’hôte dinner for two in the hotel’s Blackwood’s Bar and Grill.
The chefs use natural, fresh and often organic ingredients which have been farmed, caught, raised or bred in Scotland.
Many of the options make clever use of the kitchen’s charcoal-burning Josper grill which imparts a subtle smoky tang.
The menus change regularly but typical main courses might be the Loch Duart salmon fillet with sautéed potatoes plus a tomato and herb sauce or the pork loin steak served with chunky chips and a wild mushroom and thyme sauce.
