“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.”
Written by Louise Farquhar
“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.
