The Witchery by the Castle offers a range of opulent suites in Edinburgh, each one unique with its own special features. Lavishly furnished suites display gothic touches, with large oak beds and 4-posters, velvet-lined walls and flamboyant red and gold décor indicative of the style. There are separate seating areas and large bathrooms with free-standing silver baths. Each of The Witchery’s 9 suites is different, but walk-in dressing rooms, love seats and tapestries set the tone. Some rooms overlook Edinburgh’s Royal Mile, looking down towards Princes Street, or across to the old town. An indulgent breakfast hamper will be served in the room each morning or guests can choose to have a cooked breakfast served in the restaurant at no extra cost.

FAQs when booking at The Witchery by The Castle

  • What makes this hotel a desirable place to stay in Edinburgh?

    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.

  • Which room at The Witchery by The Castle should I choose for the optimal experience of the hotel?

    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.

  • Why should I eat at the hotel’s restaurant?

    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.

  • What wedding and honeymoon experiences does the hotel offer?

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.

  • What is the most convenient way to get to or from the airport?
