Perched on the end of a world heritage site at the heart of Edinburgh's beautiful New Town, One Royal Circus is sitting on an extremely prestigious address. Not that you'd know, there are no flags or plaques to mark the spot. Ring the doorbell to be greeted like an old friend, and enter the beautiful high-ceilinged entrance hall, where you'll be instantly blown away by the elegance of this boutique guesthouse. The property is exceptionally well-decorated, with stylish contemporary furniture sitting alongside original Georgian features. It's impossible not to feel chuffed when you're told recurrently to make yourself at home, knowing that most of us can only dream of a home half as beautiful! The modesty of this inner-city pied-à-terre makes it even more attractive. Guests are given a tour of the property on arrival, handed over a front door key, and left to their own devices. Staff mobile numbers are pinned on a clipboard in the kitchen, should you need further assistance.
