Popular Activities and Sights Nearby

Just minutes from the Edinburgh Castle and within a mile of several popular attractions, this hotel offers a great location for people who want to see the sights. Within a mile of the hotel guests will find the National Library of Scotland, Greyfriars Kirk, Royal Commonwealth Pool, Festival Theatre, and the University of Edinburgh.

Dine in Style at the Hotel Restaurant

The hotel's Polo Restaurant seats up to 28 people comfortably, making it a great choice for travelers who don't want to venture too far from the hotel for meals. It is also available to reserve for larger groups, parties, and other events. The restaurant menu changes on a regular basis, but the food comes highly rated among prior guests. Sample dishes include caramelized red onion, mozzarella, and basil tart; chicken parfait with Highland oatcakes; roast rib of beef with red wine jus and seasonal potatoes and vegetables; and pan-fried chicken with sage and onion stuffing and seasonal potatoes and vegetables.

Inside the hotel guests will also find a bar lounge that serves beer, cocktails, lunch, and dinner daily starting at noon. This is a great choice for guests looking for a more casual dining experience, as the menu features items such as macaroni and cheese and fajitas. Room service is available from either of these restaurants during limited hours.
