Our Inspector's view

Gleneagles Townhouse is n the heart of Edinburgh on St Andrews Square. Previously a bank for over 200 years the stunning original features have been retained to showcase the luxury and opulence that you'd expect from a hotel bearing the name Gleneagles. Bedrooms cater very well for the modern traveller but retain the charm and character of the building. The rooftop bar offers commanding views of the city and across to the River Forth and into Fife. The main restaurant is simply stunning and can not fail to impress, while the spa is located underground in what was the bank's strong room.

About the area

Discover Edinburgh

Edinburgh is one of Britain’s most spectacular cities and both Old and New Towns have UNESCO World Heritage status. At its heart, the Old Town is a treasury of architecture stretching back to medieval times with its labyrinth of narrow lanes (‘wynds’ or ‘closes’). While the New Town's splendid district of squares, crescents and gardens are surrounded by impressive Georgian town houses.

It isn’t just a magnificent, bustling city, it’s surrounded by countryside – offering visitors the best of both worlds. Dominated by hills and the sea, with the rolling Pentland Hills to the south and the broad expanse of the Firth of Forth estuary to the north, it benefits from a rugged and varied landscape. So much so, the city has its own miniature mountain, Arthur’s Seat, which looms over the Old Town and the Palace of Holyroodhouse, dwarfing even Castle Rock and its crowning fortress, Edinburgh Castle.

A couple of miles east, Portobello is Edinburgh’s seaside area, with a long stretch of golden sand that attracts droves of city dwellers on sunny summer days.
