The hotel is centrally located, very clean and with modern furnishings. We had a small double room which was rather basic. It was a nice touch that the room was equipped with a portable fan. Bar service was great and prices were a nice surprise.

Broughton & Calton
Lying where grandiose New Town townhouses give way to

have long been transitional neighbourhoods with a
