Family-Owned and Operated Hotel in a Townhouse

Stay at Newington's Hidden Gem

Located in Newington, just 10 minutes from Edinburgh, the Salisbury Green is an independent bed and breakfast that puts guests far enough from the hustle and bustle of the city, while keeping them close enough to explore all the sights at their convenience. It is a great hidden gem for families on vacation as well as business travelers. It is also one of the many local hotels that's considered eco-friendly, as it participates in the Green Tourism Program that measures environmental and economical impacts on the area.

Explore Edinburgh Attractions

The Salisbury Green is close to a number of Edinburgh's best attractions and sights. Nearby guests will find Royal Commonwealth Pool, Arthur's Seat, Greyfriars Kirk, Palace of Holyroodhouse, and St. Giles' Cathedral. Arthur’s Seat is one of the area's most popular attractions, and tours are available at an affordable rate. Salisbury Green guests might be eligible for discounts to several of these attractions.

Dine at the Cafe Cassis or Nearby Restaurants

Inside the Salisbury Green guests can dine at the Cafe Cassis. The menu offers French bistro cuisine, featuring dishes made with locally sourced ingredients. Menus vary seasonally based on ingredient availability and a variety of other factors, but past featured dishes include escargot, Scottish sea scallops, ribeye steak, and baked Alaska. The Cafe Cassis also offers room service during select hours.

If French cuisine doesn’t suit guests’ appetites, many nearby restaurants offer a variety of cuisines. Notable establishments include Number One, Pickles, Mary’s Milk Bar, Three Birds, and Origano. Guests can find anything from Scottish to Italian cuisine.

Warm, Cozy Accommodations

The Salisbury Green offers 18 rooms equipped with four-post beds, complimentary Wi-Fi, a wall-mounted flat-screen TV with cable channels, and a work area with desk. Some rooms also feature walk-in wet rooms. Concierge is available until 11 p.m. every night to meet guests’ needs. Dry cleaning and laundry services are available on-site for an extra fee.

The Bottom Line

For guests who want a more personal experience while staying in Edinburgh, this hotel is a great option. Sales and specials keep booking rates low, but the small number of rooms available means guests will need to book their stay far in advance to ensure availability. Compared to other nearby hotels, the level of personal service is second to none.
