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.
Blythswood Square

Blythswood Square Rating: 4.5 Pearls

The elegant and luxurious Blythswood Square hotel, housed in a grand Georgian building, overlooks its namesake square. While interiors are glitzy and modern, plenty of the building's original character and historical features have been retained. Rooms are sleek and contemporary, and while some are small and dark, all have attractive marble bathrooms and free Wi-Fi. The large spa with an impressive thermal suite and the chic cocktail bar add to the Blythswood's sophisticated ambiance. However, the quality of the breakfast service is reportedly inconsistent, which detracts from this pricey hotel's otherwise luxurious atmosphere.
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.
Fonab Castle Hotel

Fonab Castle Hotel Rating: 4.5 Pearls

The luxurious 26-room Fonab Castle Hotel is a luxury property located on the scenic shores of Loch Faskally. Built in 1892, the hotel tastefully blends tradition and modernity -- its beautiful, contemporary interiors include a cozy lounge and two restaurants, a fine-dining establishment serving multi-course gourmet meals, and a more relaxed brasserie with stunning views over the water. The hotel’s sleek and modern spa has a sauna, steam room, pool, and fitness center. Spacious, upscale rooms and suites are located in both the main castle building and an abutting modern annex, offering chic decor and such amenities as flat-screen TVs, Nespresso machines, and designer toiletries. A large, vaulted-ceiling penthouse with an egg-shaped soaking tub is also available for guests seeking extra indulgence.
Murrayfield Hotel and House

Murrayfield Hotel and House Rating: 4.0 Pearls

A charming, 45-room, upscale boutique hotel in a pleasant residential neighborhood, the Murrayfield Hotel and House is within walking distance of Murrayfield Stadium. Intimate and cozy, its clientele is mostly couples, rugby fans or not. Its restaurant, the Bothy, serves inventive Scottish cuisine, and its lively bar broadcasts live sports on TV. The bar also presents live music, and a seasonal outdoor beer garden. Rooms are neutral toned and elegant, with plush beds, free Wi-Fi, and flat-screen TVs; higher-end rooms have deep soaking tubs, minibars, and "nooks" with free whiskey and Scottish goodies on hand. Outside the city center but accessible to public transportation, the hotel is relatively inexpensive compared with other upscale properties in the city center. The Murrayfield also operates a nine-bedroom town house on the same block as the hotel, which guests can rent in its entirely or by the room.
Fraser Suites Glasgow

Fraser Suites Glasgow Rating: 4.0 Pearls

Fraser Suites Glasgow is an upscale serviced-apartment property located in Glasgow's Merchant City area, within walking distance of the city center. Even the smaller apartments are spacious, and all have comfy lounge areas with well-equipped kitchenettes. Top-floor apartments have great city views, although some of the lower-floor apartments can be noisy due to a bar next door. While units lack air-conditioning, it's rarely needed in Glasgow's mild summers. Amenities are limited, as to be expected with serviced apartments, but there is a small gym on-site and some rates come with free breakfast.
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.
