All Guestrooms Feature:
The Heights Restaurant:
They have a reputation for not getting on with each other. Or rather, they did. Heights Restaurant proves that beautiful surroundings (and stunning views of Edinburgh Castle) can go hand-in-hand with equally sensational Scottish cuisine. And yes, there’s the proof – in the shape of The Heights’ 2 AA Rosette award. So the swathes of marble, wood and glass aren’t the only things that draw admiring comments…!
Metro Bar & Brasserie:
At Metro, natural materials and cool colours are the backdrop to an array of tempting dishes. This is classic eating with a hint of gourmet flair – heavy on flavour, but light on fuss.
And if you can’t find something tempting from the delicious menu, maybe you’re not that peckish after all!

Edinburgh knows how to welcome travelers with grace and charm. She also knows how to kick up her heels and enjoy a nice shot of Scotch Whisky after a festival. The hill that Edinburgh Castle stands upon has been Scotland’s remarkable silent witness since the Bronze Age. Today her streets are filled with cutting-edge galleries and museums, tributes to the love of literature and music, fine cuisine, quirky shops, theater, and an extravagance of festivals. Four ancient streets, called the Royal Mile, are the main thoroughfare. Running through medieval Edinburgh with her 66 alleys, tumbling shops, cobblestones, and tight homes the Royal Mile takes you to New Town. Here you’ll stroll through fine gardens, perfect Georgian architecture and broad squares. The mix of time, while lost in time, is a heady brew. There may be no finer city than Edinburgh Scotland, to participate in the gifts of the past with an eye to a brilliant future.
