Good Hotel Guide Review
Sassy interiors unfurl behind the restrained Georgian exterior of this playful hotel in New Town. A sense of fun and opulence fills the place: there are spirited prints, jewel tones and mirror-ball surfaces; oversized velvet armchairs and a lushly growing green wall. Recently refreshed bedrooms are more restrained (though there remain some design flourishes); most attention-grabbing are the amenities they’re packed with: fluffy bathrobes, slippers, a stash of DVDs, a pre-loaded iPod, and wireless speakers so you can play your own tunes. Join locals on a night out in the popular, cocktail-dispensing bars or buzzy restaurant: steaks, sharing platters and a menu of modern dishes offer good choice. Next morning, detox juices and breakfast baps kick-start the day.
