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.

I booked an executive room for Ā£278 for one night. That consisted of a small room in the loft ( see pictures), 5 floors up with no lift. The view from the window was just of a building on the other side of the street. The window sills were falling apart ( see picture). Well at least it had a tv but unfortunately it didn't work. I called reception but the phone didn't work. Evidently there had been a fire recently which had knocked out the communications. So had to walk all the way back down 5 floors to tell reception. They managed to get the tv fixed. Due to the fire there was no breakfast room so we had to eat in our room. I didn't like the breakfast. The poached eggs tasted of vinegar. The bacon was brittle - probably charred in the fire. I love haggis but the haggis that was served for breakfast tasted so horrible, I had to leave it. I would have marked this hotel with 1 out of 5 but the staff were very pleasant. We were told that the rooms in the part of the hotel which had been burnt were much nicer. This was the worst hotel I have stayed in for many years and the worst value.

Booked this as a very last minute deal. Comfortable and clean with an excellent breakfast. Staff were very helpful. I paid a last minute price and this was good value. Would recommend. Relatively convenient location.

The hotel is a short walk from the Old Town and from the Gold or Royal Mile. It is a quiet and well kept hotel that is not located on a busy roadway. We were given a lower level room with nice wood floors which was fairly roomy. The hotel did not have a lift (at least on the day we arrived) and their restaurant was closed due to a fire in an abutting building. The furnishings seemed quite nice and the staff was pleasant.

We had booked 2 nights in a Petit Double room for our final 2 nights following a group tour of Scotland. We learned that the hotel had experienced a fire from our fellow travellers and contacted the hotel to find out if this affected our reservation. We were advised that they had a room for us in the building that was not affected by the fire if we wanted to stay even though their restaurant would be unable to provide a breakfast buffet. They would however provide a limited room service menu. After some consideration, we opted to stay. We were so happy we made this decision. Upon check-in at their make-shift reception desk, we were upgraded to an extremely spacious jacuzzi suite - which was amazing! We were greeted with a complimentary bottle of wine. The bed was very comfortable. Loved the L'Occitane products! We enjoyed a delicious room service breakfast in the comfort of our room. All staff we encountered were very friendly. Hopefully it won't take long for them to recover from the fire! I would not hesitate to recommend this hotel!

I still check out their instagram daily just for the reminder of how awesome this hotel is. Our travel agent picked this and it's the only place I want to stay when we travel back t Edinburgh.. or anywhere. Seriously, this hotel is perfect. We stayed in a petite double and wished we had booked a king but the room was still spacious enough for the two of us with 15 days worth of clothing, luggage and souvenirs. This is a "boutique" hotel. Before we arrived, we requested champagne and strawberries at check and it was set out perfectly. The nespresso machine was used multiple times a day. I now have an obsession with L'occitine beauty products. Nothing compares to their breakfast. The Jam options alone are worth the stay! We only enjoyed breakfast in the hotel but their other menu items looked great. Very convenient to other sites in the city. About a 15 -20 min walk to Edinburgh Castle. The decor is beautiful and the beds comfy. Next time, we will get a garden room for sure. Quiet. Just lovely and I can't wait to book again.
