    New Town
    Suits and shopping bags rule the streets of New Town,
    until after dark when strappy dresses come out to
    play. This is the city’s central business district
    with its smaller offices, clothes boutiques, and many
    of the city’s flashiest restaurants and ritziest
    clubs. The architecture along roads like George Street
    helps give it a swank and formal feel: it’s a planned
    Georgian development of regal townhouses, geometric

    I think you have directed your question to me by mistake. I was a guest at this property and am not the owner. They have their own website which has an enquiries box you could use.

    Hello, I'm coming down from Canada for the World Cup of Rugby 2015. I'm seeing couple of games in Newcastle, and would like to visit Scotland to see the beautiful country. Since I might only be in Edinburgh for a day or so, would your location be close to the castle and old part of the city via train\bus. Thanks Clinton
