Property Description

Located on the cobbled streets of New Town, this romantic boutique property combines the luxury of a top five star hotel with the intimacy and peace of a cosy townhouse. Amid the plush pelmets, rich textures and original cornices you'll find flat-screen televisions, Nespresso coffee machines, complimentary Wi-Fi and iPod docking stations. You'll find warm, heartfelt service and a cool, quirky style. Each of our sumptuous rooms and suites is unique, with its own opulent character. Many have vast floor-to-ceiling sash windows, others open out onto a private garden and some feature a relaxing Jacuzzi. All have new ultra-comfortable beds and pillows of goose feather and down. As a protected Grade A building we don't have a lift, but our porters are always on hand and we offer 24-hour room service. The menu in Blackwood's Restaurant is overseen by Executive Chef David Scott who has revamped regional favourites. In particular, the restaurant will showcase the Josper grill, a top-quality oven which imparts a distinctive charcoal flavour to all the handpicked ingredients cooked on its coals and ensures that their natural moisture and flavour remain intact. At Blackwood's all ingredients are farmed, caught, raised or bred in Scotland. The menu's delicious dry aged beef has been raised according to the centenary traditions of the Highland Drovers. Seafood comes from the Highland Lochs and the North Sea with smoked salmon sourced by a Slow-Food-supporting supplier in Dunkeld, on the banks of one of Scotland's most famous salmon rivers. Providing guests with an opportunity to enhance their knowledge of Scottish whiskies, the bar stocks all the major malts available. Many, such as Glenkinchie and Caol Ila have aged twelve years and sit alongside all the great names of the local industry: Glenmorangie, Macallan and Laphroaig. Niche Scottish beer is also well represented by 'Innis and Gunn' beer, famous for maturing over 77 days in a whisky cask, while Hendrick's Gin, distilled and bottled in Scotland, is infused with local juniper, coriander and rose petals.This 28-bedroom hotel is just a 10-minute stroll through some of Edinburgh's most celebrated architecture to the centre of town at Princes Street. Go the other way, however, and you will be met by a charming selection of speciality shops, charity booksellers and bustling cafes and bars, many lining the picturesque riverbank in Stockbridge.
