“A small 5-star hotel occupying 3 Georgian townhouses in the heart of Edinburgh’s New Town. As elegant inside as out, with antiques, oil paintings and chic furniture. Most uniquely it boasts a butler service who will be at your beck and call. Enjoy great Scottish food in the restaurant. ”

Hotel Overview

“Stay here for a taste of gracious living Regency-style. In three refined Georgian town houses on a quiet cobbled street, afternoon tea is served in the elegant drawing room, breakfast in a room decorated with charming, original Italianate murals, and a grandly sweeping staircase leads to the luxurious bedrooms. And leave the chores to your personal butler.”

See What They Say

“Imagine a 5-star Georgian retreat in the city centre of Scotland's Capital City. Consistently classified as one of the AA's Top 200 Hotels in Britain and Ireland and recently awarded a Scottish Boutique Hotel Special Commendation from the Scottish Hotel of the Year Awards.
During your stay at the Howard hotel, a member of Small Luxury Hotels of the World, you'll be taken back to the time of traditional Georgian pampering, as you relax in one of our eighteen individually characterised bedrooms, which have recently been renovated.
From the moment you arrive our team of butlers will tend to your every need.
For an even more discreet experience, we have three exclusive suites with their very own terraced gardens and private entrances.
"This is not a hotel - its a home from home!" Howard Guest March 2006
The Oval and Cumberland private events suites offer the most exclusive and discreet events venue in Edinburgh.
An ideal location for small intimate weddings this elegant Georgian setting is perfect for your personal entertaining and private corporate gatherings.”
