The  Balmoral Hotel

The Balmoral Hotel Rating: 5.0 Pearls

The 188-room grand railway Balmoral Hotel has been a part of Edinburgh's skyline since 1902 (courtesy of its famous clock tower, which runs three minutes fast to ensure guests never miss their trains). The large, majestic luxury hotel has a range of rooms, from compact, comfortable Classic Rooms to large multi-room suites. The five restaurants, including one with a Michelin star, and bars offer a wealth of choices, and include a brassiere, a tea court, a lounge, and a Scotch bar. Packages can be purchased, but generally expect to pay for the extras here.
23 Mayfield

23 Mayfield Rating: 4.5 Pearls

The 23 Mayfield is a luxury bed-and-breakfast housed in an immaculately presented Victorian villa set about a mile south of Edinburgh's historical center. Period interiors are particularly impressive throughout, extending to eight charming rooms with hand-carved mahogany furnishings and, in some, views of Arthur's Seat. Breakfast is a real highlight and one of the best available in the city, while a cozy candle-lit lounge provides a superb setting for a nightcap. While rates are justifiably toward the higher end and the location isn't ideal for exploring the city on foot, this is certainly one of the finest guesthouses on offer in Edinburgh.
Prestonfield

Prestonfield Rating: 4.5 Pearls

The 18-room luxury Prestonfield House is an opulent boutique hotel on a historic, 20-acre country estate in southeast Edinburgh. The epitome of Scottish luxury, the Prestonfield overflows with fine antiques, oil paintings, and lush fabrics to create a quirky, theatrical feast for the eyes. Each guest room is individually designed and furnished. The common threads are decadence and quality, which carry into the menu at the hotel's destination restaurant, Rhubarb, and the endless fascinating nooks and crannies in this unforgettable hotel.
Menzies Glasgow Hotel

Menzies Glasgow Hotel Rating: 4.0 Pearls

The Menzies Glasgow Hotel is an upscale, chain hotel comprising 129 rooms and 12 apartments located west of Glasgow's center. While the immediate surrounds aren't very attractive, proximity to the motorway makes for easy car access and the city center is easily walkable. Apartments are especially nicely finished, with some charming period features like exposed brick walls plus kitchenettes; Sky Sports channels will certainly appeal to some. While rates aren't too much cheaper than some more central hotels, the on-site health club with a huge indoor pool makes this more than worth a look.
Grand Central Hotel

Grand Central Hotel Rating: 4.0 Pearls

The 226-room Grand Central Hotel is an upscale, landmark property integrated into Glasgow Central station dating back to the late 19th century. After a period of decline, a huge renovation project relaunched the hotel to its former splendor. Rooms are generally spacious and, while there is evidence of some wear, largely nicely finished -- especially a batch of more recently renovated rooms. The champagne bar is a stunning place to enjoy a spot of luxury while the restaurant also serves an impressive menu. Although lacking a pool or spa facilities, its prime central location and reasonable room rates makes this hotel one of the city's more attractive options.
The Dunstane Hotel

The Dunstane Hotel Rating: 4.0 Pearls

The 38-room upscale Dunstane Hotel is a family-owned boutique hotel built in two luxury Victorian townhouses, circa 1852, that face one another across an Edinburgh street. The owners come from the Orkney Islands, and take pride in infusing elements of their heritage into the property, creating a quirky, classy atmosphere with plush fabrics, elaborate period-style wallpaper with a twist, and, of course, fine Scotch whiskey. Individually designed and decorated guest rooms combine modern luxury and period character.
Channings Hotel

Channings Hotel Rating: 4.0 Pearls

The Channings Hotel is a four pearl townhouse with 41 rooms spread over five floors. The property consists of five Edwardian townhouses, one of which was once the home of the great Antarctic explorer, Sir Ernest Shackleton. Packed with memorabilia from the infamous Antarctic exhibition, period pieces, and humorous art, this hotel has a traditional but informal vibe. The rooms are chic and contemporary with a serene color palette; some bathrooms have separate soaking tubs and stall showers. Guests rave about the friendly and welcoming staff, but the hotel is quite far away from the city center -- at least a good 15-minute walk. For the price, this quaint hotel delivers good value for Edinburgh and is full of character. Wi-Fi is free.
Hotel Indigo Edinburgh

Hotel Indigo Edinburgh Rating: 4.0 Pearls

The 60-room Hotel Indigo is an upmarket boutique occupying a row of period Georgian properties in the New Town of Edinburgh. Interiors are colorful, hip, and contemporary throughout, especially in the impressive bar and restaurant. Rooms follow the same smart, funky decor scheme and offer flat-screen TVs along with sleek walk-in showers -- though internal soundproofing can be an issue. Overall it's a standout property with a particular attention to design. Price-wise it's usually somewhere between the pricier Twelve Picardy Place and cheaper The Place -- both nearby. Wi-Fi is free throughout.
The Scotsman Hotel

The Scotsman Hotel Rating: 4.0 Pearls

The Scotsman is an upscale historic boutique located right off the Royal Mile, in the heart of the Old Town. The building is a former printing house, and many of the original features are preserved, including an Italian marble staircase, ornate ceilings, and oak paneling. Luxurious amenities include a relaxing spa complete with an indoor pool, a large fitness center with classes and personal trainers, and a wonderful brasserie. But the individually decorated rooms have inconsistent quality and decor -- while some have beautiful wood paneling, ornamental fireplaces, and great city views, others have blander furnishings and lack wow factor. However, they all have luxurious amenities, such as Egyptian cotton linens, Highland Aromatic toiletries, and flat-screen TVs.
