Broughton & Calton
Lying where grandiose New Town townhouses give way to
malls and utilitarian housing, Broughton and Calton

but overt along bustling epicentre Broughton Street;
even if polished pubs, hip bistros, smart delis and
art galleries all speak of affluent good taste. The

Can't fault this hotel. Peaceful, clean, perfect. We only stayed one night but I'd have no hesitation in returning. The only thing I think is excessive is the £9.95 for breakfast, albeit apparently very good but I like breakfast as part of the cost.More

Hi. The tram goes directly from the airport to right outside the hotel. York place is the final stop so you can't miss the stop.
