Hotel description The Principal Edinburgh Charlotte Square

Business hours of reception: 24 hours

The Roxburghe Hotel is one of Edinburgh's finest and most elegant hotels, residing in an unrivalled city centre location. Re-opened in 2000 after a 12 million development, the hotel now offers a high level of comfort at one of the most fashionable addresses in Edinburgh. Most of the rooms provide a wonderful view of the Charlotte Square, the well-manicured gardens and the castle.

Our delightfully appointed en suite bedrooms, including a suite, ensure a relaxed stay. They are equipped with hairdryer, TV, phone, internet access and work area with desk. Barrier-free and non-smoking rooms are available.

We take care of your culinary needs as well. The Melrose Restaurant offers a varied selection of regional and international specialties. The nice bar is a place to meet people and have a tasty drink in the evening. Relax in our wellness area.

The hotel also features spacious conference facilities. The attractive rooms can accommodate up to 300 people at a time and come with the latest conference technology. This is the perfect venue for successful events.

We are currently undergoing a top-to-toe refurbishment. More than 100 of our bedrooms and suites have already been given a smart, new look - and it's these rooms that guests will stay in when they book accommodation. For the next couple of months, we'll be tackling many of the ground-floor spaces, including the hotel restaurant and bar. Whilst these are closed, we will serve a complimentary breakfast as room service or take-away from the lobby until the end of March 2017; dinner will be served in the lounge area and also available as room service. Reception hours: Every day: from 12:00 AM to 12:00 AM

The best hotel we have ever stayed at - excellent in every respect, apart from the breakfast

The only negative comment I can make on this excellent hotel is that breakfast was not included in the price and it cost sixteen pounds which I think is too expensive.

I was not able to answer many of the questions related to how it appeared on the web site because I never saw it - my PA booked it. I have just given an intermediate marking in those cases
