Romantic boutique hotel Nira Caledonia, Edinburgh

Luxury-Hotel-Edinburgh-Scotland-Adelto-09

Located on Gloucester Place, Edinburgh, amongst the cobbled streets of New Town, this romantic boutique hotel combines the luxury of a top five-star hotel with the intimacy and peace of a cosy townhouse.

Tucked away amongst the striking neo-classical architecture of New Town, Nira Caledonia occupies two buildings on Gloucester Place, one of the most exclusive addresses in Edinburgh. Formerly the home of John Wilson, a friend of Wordsworth and famous literary figure of early 19th-century Scotland, the property is a classic example of Georgian architecture.

One of the greatest things about staying at Nira Caledonia is the short 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.

The 28-bedroom luxury hotel features stunning original cornicing and plasterwork. Lavish suites are all entirely unique, some boasting private garden terraces, views over the Botanical Gardens and vast in-room Jacuzzis.

Designed in a colour palette of black and gold with bold accents of reds and greens, the hotel exudes romance. A cosy restaurant is lit by the soft glow of a chandelier, while the striking architecture on the street opposite is visible through original sash windows. While every room in the hotel is different, they share many design characteristics. High ceilings, dado rails and Georgian sash windows are in each of the rooms, which also feature antique rugs, ornate gold mirrors and modish armchairs.
