A cosmopolitan clubhouse in Scotland’s historic capital city
Overlooking one of Edinburgh’s prettiest private garden squares, The Principal Edinburgh Charlotte Square — formerly The Roxburghe Hotel — consists of seven inter-connecting Georgian townhouses in the heart of the New Town, a UNESCO world heritage site.
As the newest Principal hotel, it has undergone a multi-million restoration and refurbishment: all of our bedrooms and suites have been given a smart, new look, inspired by the golden age of travel and a genuine sense of Scottish hospitality. Guests familiar with PRINCIPAL will find familiar touch points, including the red bedside telephone, tuck box of treats and a vintage post box.
Our beautiful internal courtyard, The Garden — an oasis of calm with a glass roof — is now open from breakfast through to the wee hours. Inspired by the flavours of the Levant, our restaurant, BABA, is brought to you in partnership with the award-wining team behind Ox and Finch.
The new gym and spa at The Principal Edinburgh Charlotte Square is now open to guests as well as the general public. A full range of spa treatments is available alongside a pool, sauna, steam room and fully equipped gym.
