Experience luxury style minutes from the city centre and some of Edinburgh’s most iconic landmarks; the Castle, Holyrood, and Princes Street, this 5 star Top Secret Hotel is the most exclusive luxury accommodation option in the city. The property’s façade is in the style of a Georgian townhouse and the interiors contain some original period features that bring a sense of grandeur and elegance. The feeling of a private house is maintained inside the hotel also, with world-class, individual service and hospitality to ensure that each guest is made to feel as special as possible and well taken care of.

Providing an idyllic haven away from the hubbub of the touristy city centre, you will feel utterly relaxed and at ease in the lavish surroundings of the lounge and dining areas and in your own suite. Each beautifully decorated and designed suite has ample room for living, dining and working, plus a state-of-the-art kitchenette and luxurious en-suite bathroom. As well as all this, the hotel is well known for its fine-dining experiences, which can either be enjoyed privately or as a resident. Award-winning chefs rustle up mouth-watering dishes throughout the day, plus there is delightful afternoon tea served at 2pm daily. The drawing room bar is a spectacular centrepiece for the property, with regal furnishings and an intricate crystal chandelier hanging over the comfortable armchairs. Whatever the reason for your visit to the capital, you are bound to have an unforgettable stay here!

Staying so central means that you won’t have to travel too far to arrive at any one of the major tourist attractions and places of interest across the city. There is an abundance of significant historic sites that each tell a piece of the city’s past and help explain its culture and people today. One of which is the Old Calton Burial Ground, an ancient cemetery with a great deal of character and atmosphere and the site of David Hume’s grave, Scotland’s most famous philosopher. The other notable landmark on the site is the impressive black obelisk of the Political Martyr’s Monument.

Take in some fresh, clean air at the top of Arthur’s Seat and pause to admire the breath-taking views before heading to the south-eastern slopes to the village of Duddington. This postcard-worthy village is one of the oldest corners of the capital with parts of the parish church dating back to the 12th century. Venture to the far end of the village for a pint at an authentic country pub built in the 18th century, the Sheep Heid.
