Good Hotel Guide Review
A kilted doorman ushers guests into this city-centre landmark, one of the great Victorian railway stopovers, today a luxury hotel (Rocco Forte Hotels). Guests come to be impressed: there are grand public spaces, sleek, modern bedrooms, a Michelin-starred restaurant and an award-winning spa. Most of the bedrooms have views of Edinburgh Castle; all have a bathroom of Italian marble. Indulge in afternoon tea under the glass dome of the Palm Court or choose from more than 400 whiskies in the bar. Eat an informal meal in buzzy Hadrian’s brasserie. In Number One, Scottish dishes are cooked with a French twist. Set out for a day of exploring in good time: the hotel’s iconic clock has been set three minutes fast since 1902, to ensure no one misses their train.
