The Witchery by The Castle really is a fascinating and unique place to stay in Edinburgh, right in front of the famous Edinburgh Castle. It’s virtually unrivalled for its decor and atmosphere, which is an imaginatively detailed and classy rendition of 16th-century Gothic indulgence, soaked in authentic Scottish history.

A stay at this hotel promises to be a particularly memorable experience every time you come back – which you’ll definitely want to do.
You can spoil yourself a little without stretching your budget by booking a stay in The Guardroom. It's a special experience without being one of the most expensive rooms in the hotel. This room has rooftop views across the old town district of Edinburgh and beyond to The Lomond Hills, with a dramatic four-poster bed and an oak-panelled bathroom. You’ll have a separate dining area and seating room, too, with adjustable mood lighting and a quaint stone turnpike stairway leading up to the room from the ground floor.
It’s actually something of a toss-up between whether The Witchery by The Castle is a hotel with a famous restaurant attached to it or whether it’s Scotland’s most famous restaurant that also offers hotel accommodation. One thing is for sure though, you should certainly sample the fare at the hotel’s restaurant, which shares its name. It serves a wide variety of traditional Scottish dishes and is particularly famed for its Angus beef steaks. The entire menu is a celebration of Scotland’s culinary history, using only fresh local produce.
This is a hotel that also specialises in weddings and particularly honeymoons. It has a variety of discrete areas tucked away that make perfect places to tie the knot, like The Secret Garden, which has a private terrace. The Heriot Suite is tailor made for a honeymoon or a romantic getaway. It too has a grand ornate four-poster bed with gold embroidered velvet drapes, a lounge and a hidden Gothic bathroom with a secret entrance, which has a free-standing roll-top bath. The authentic centuries-old wood panelling is complemented by tapestries on the walls, and you’ll have a breakfast hamper delivered every morning. It’s all part of the ceremony and tongue-in-cheek melodrama that has made this hotel so famous and popular.
