Royal Mile Hotels

Where to stay


There are numerous Hotels to choose from both on and around the Royal mile, ranging from unique boutique hotels to the familiar chains and budget options.



The Witchery by the Castle

The Witchery by the Castle is located at the top of the Royal Mile, on the left as you approach Edinburgh Castle. Hidden in a collection of ancient buildings in the heart of Edinburgh's historic Old Town, the Witchery's entrance is though an ancient "close" below a gilded heraldic sign. The Witchery is primarily a restaurant but has eight sumptuous suites.

Radisson Blu


The Radisson sits right in the centre of the Royal mile and boasts 238 rooms ranging from standard rooms to suites and family rooms. Guests get complimentary use of the Pace health club. Externally the hotel was designed to look like some of the more historic blocks on the mile, which it doesn't do particularly well. Inside however it is distinctly crisp and modern.

The Missoni is the newest luxury hotel in the Old Town and one of only two hotels operated by this Italian fashion house. It has probably the most stylish yet useless website I've come across.
