Nira Caledonia in Edinburgh, Scotland

Nira Caledonia is a bonnie lass, but not in the traditional style of Scottish hotels. It’s an edgy home away from home where original wood floors, funky chandeliers, and designer wallpaper combine with sumptuous details, including a 2,000 pocket sprung mattress and a Nespresso machine accompanied by fresh cookies. Each of the 28 rooms is unique – some come with a Jacuzzi tub, some have access to a private garden – but all retain the Georgian sash windows and detailed cornicing from its neoclassical heyday. John Wilson, the literary lion who wrote by the name of Christopher North, built the townhouse, and Blackwood’s restaurant takes its name from the renowned 19th Century magazine he founded.

Stroll north to cobblestoned streets in downtown Stockbridge. Sample Caboc from Mellis, voted the best artisanal cheese shop in Scotland. Browse antique shops and quaint little bookstores. Visit Scottish Parliament. Savor a rare single-malt Scotch and a plate of Perthshire pheasant breast on the bone.

Really lovely hotel within easy walking access of everything going on in centre of city but just far enough out to be very peaceful. Hotel staff could not have been more helpful and room and breakfast were excellent.

I was not going to review the hotel on the premise that if you don't have anything nice to say don't say it. But our decision to stay at this hotel was largely based on the great reviews by other guests. Perhaps we expected too much but We have stayed in much nicer hotels for less. Firstly we arrived early to drop bags off and were warmly welcomed and pleased to find our room was ready. The trip was for our 1st wedding anniversary and we were presented with a lovely hand written note wishing us congratulations and a pleasant stay. All good so far apart from the room being very hot first impressions were good. We were assured the heating had been turned off and a portable aircon. unit was on. We left to enjoy the city but on our return the temperature of the room had not changed much. This was when we also noticed a number of let downs in the room. Frayed carpet, dirty stained valance, bath panel not fixed to bath, petals on the floor I presume for the previous guest, handles missing from the tired furniture. No water which we desperately needed due to the temperature. By the following morning the temperature had become unbearable and we asked to be moved to another room unfortunately the hotel was full so this was not possible. We also mentioned at this time that the turn down service we had been offered had not happened only to be informed this was because our do not disturb sign had been displayed (We did not use the dnd sign at any point) but assurances were given it would happen that evening and we would also receive water. Again Nothing. But I do think they had figured the heating out at last. Breakfast both mornings was good albeit late when ordered in the room. With exception of the young man who greeted us and the night staff in the bar on Friday evening we did not find any other members of staff to be pleasant or friendly. You promised much but delivered little, sorry to say we will not return.

We stayed here for three nights for a business trip and overall enjoyed it very much. The staff was the best part of the hotel, they were incredibly friendly and always willing to help or give suggestions. The building itself is beautiful and so are the rooms, very old world charm and feels like you are back in time. The bed was very comfortable and cozy and the room spacious. The location is very close to Princes Street, about a ten minute walk, which is perfect. You are able to walk everywhere, no need for a bus or taxi. I would give this five stars but had a couple hickups two mornings while we were on our way to our conference. That being said, the staff were great and very helpful! The breakfast was delicious and there was plenty to choose from. I loved the yogurt with fresh berries and the cheeses to choose from as well as the delcious bakery bread that is delivered daily. I would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone!

I arrived at this boutique hotel on foot from the Edinburgh waverly station, took about 10mins. As a SLH member, unfortunately there wasn't an upgrade available until my last night. ( I was there for 3 nights ) I had a great check-in by George, very helpful young man who showed me to my room and explained what I needed to know during my stay. I had the Dean suite room 6/13. Beautiful. it is the main picture on this website., loved it, it was a very cozy room with private garden to the rear,the only negative was if you were in your room between 7-10pm in the lounge area you will,hear a lot of foot traffic as the toilets and cloakroom for guests who are dining is situated just down the corridor from your room. Had breakfast in my room most mornings and it was perfect, excellent poached eggs without a hint of vinegar. Overhaul, I loved it and would definitely stay at this hotel again and in that room. Many thanks to all staff.

Staff was the warmest and most attentive and helpful I've ever encountered. A must stay! We were so happy to be situated in a non-touristy cool neighborhood area of Edinburgh where we felt like locals. The Stockbridge neighborhood is just around the corner. Tons of shops and restaurants. A really lovely stay.
