Fodor's Review

The cattle grazing on the hotel's 20-acre grounds let you know that you've entered a different world, even though you're five minutes by car from the Royal Mile. Inside this 1687 mansion, baroque opulence reigns in the well-restored public rooms; there are plenty of gilt treasures to relax among as you sip a whisky. Guest rooms are individually decorated, mixing antiques with the latest amenities for total indulgence. The romantic Rhubarb restaurant created by James Thomson—the man behind the Witchery—is suitably sumptuous: expect theatrical decor and a menu starring the best Scottish produce, such as hand-dived scallops, venison, and partridge.
