We stayed from 5-10th August and we had a very beautiful Georgian room with excellent bathroom, lots of room and good sheets etc. The bar is good and the breakfast was more than adequate. Access to the station is excellent

The staff was very helpful and available. The restaurant serves good food. The location was perfect but the cleanliness of the bathrooms was subpar for the price we paid for our room. We would probably look around for a better place next visit.

Broughton & Calton
Lying where grandiose New Town townhouses give way to
malls and utilitarian housing, Broughton and Calton
have long been transitional neighbourhoods with a
