Elegant Georgian accommodation in the centre of Edinburgh

Unique Qualities

• Boutique hotel set in two Georgian townhouses, once home to 19th-century essayist Christopher North
• Intuitive service designed to make guests feel at home
• Bar and restaurant capture local flavours, with traditional Scottish cuisine and malt whisky

The hotel in detail

Comprising two magnificent Georgian townhouses in the heart of Scotland’s capital city, Nira Caledonia is a quirky blend of architectural grandeur and modern interior design. Far from showy or grand, expect an easy going, yet smart and comfortable feel where an emphasis on providing the best of the region is reflected in the restaurant with locally sourced produce, a superb selection of single malt whisky in the bar and indulgently comfortable accommodation.

The rooms and suites at Nira Caledonia are bright and airy, some with floor-to-ceiling sash windows that flood the rooms with light. Each one is beautifully decorated in sophisticated shades of brown and cream with rich, eclectic furnishings and splashes of colour in scatter cushions. The overriding factor here though, is the warm and friendly service specifically designed to make guests feel at home and totally pampered.

Nira Caledonia is superbly placed, just a ten-minute walk from Princes Street. Take a walk around New Town to appreciate the wealth of Georgian architecture with its cobbled streets, impressive pillars and sandstone block facades. Then, head towards the old part of the city to see the castle, the cathedral, galleries and the boutiques along the Royal Mile.
