Excellent botique hotel in the Stockbridge area of town. Its set in a converted Georgian townhouse. There are no lifts, and the rooms are quire small. That said, it's a very nice hotel. The beds are very comfortable. The amenities are modern - they even have 2 USB chargers on the nightstand - and they have L'Occitaine soaps and shampoos. Wi-fi is free. There is an excellent restaurant downstairs, and its a 5 minute walk to the pubs and restaurants in Stockbridge. I would definitely stay here again.

Nira Caledonia is a boutique luxury hotel which use to be multiple townhouses at Gloucester Place in Stockbridge, Edinburgh. If you have lived in a townhouse or own a townhouse this hotel is perfectly designed to make you feel at home. For those who dont live in a townhouses its your chance to live it up. There are only 28 rooms and suites which only makes the experience that much more special, cosy and extremely personalised. The staff is beyond warm and friendly they are as genuine as perhaps someone from your family. Every detail of the room is carefully designed and placed to ensure the guests live at the hotel and dont just stay. The bath tub size in suites befits the luxurious hotel and you wouldn't want to miss the glass of bubbly while soaking in.

Nira Caledonian, meaning 'Pure Caledonia' sits quietly tucked away in an unassuming manner on a cobbled Edinburgh street and perhaps that's just the way the owners would like to keep it.

The allure of this hotel lies in its gentle mystique.

Acquired by Shanti Hospitality in 2011, the building once belonged to John Wilson, a famous literary Edinburgh figure and one time friend of Wordsworth.

So there you have it. You are probably beginning to get the picture about why this place is so appealing.

Walking into the peaceful ambiance, you immediately become aware you are in a somewhat 'special place'. There's dark Ralph Lauren furnishings and textiles and newly upholstered chairs in the reception room. There's antiques in ornamental armoires and a salubrious little bar which is well-stocked with a superb collection of gins and whiskies.

The winding staircase reveals a total of 28 quiet bedrooms between the two buildings. Some have large in-room jacuzzis and some have exquisite views and there's 24-Hour room service to boot.

The beds are beautifully upholstered in a variety of thick brocades and velvets. Nespresso machines, free broadband and iPod docking stations complete the picture.

If a peaceful break in a luxuriously decorated hotel is your priority then I recommend you check yourself in and enjoy the quiet before this place gets found out.
