The hotel has a bar but no restaurant, however being located in the heart of the city, you will have no problem finding restaurants offering a authentic Scottish welcome. A favorite restaurant, “Aizle” at Leonard Street, where the dishes are inspired by the fresh daily market produce. The restaurants has a 5 course surprise menu, lovely interior and a warm welcome awaits.
The Glen Golf Club :
Many players compare this course to the Pebble Beach course. It is a must in Scotland with superb green maintenance, on a par with the greatest golf courses in the world. This difficult back-tee course is much more affordable from the yellow and red balls, which can be enjoyed by golfers of all levels. Sea views are just one of the many attributes of this course. The first 9 holes of this PAR 70, 5735 meters in length course were created in 1894, the last 9 holes in 1906.
The Musselburgh Old Links :
Another legendary links, created between 1874 and 1889, enjoy a drink in the clubhouse dating from 1873. You will enjoy the sea views, beautifully designed fairways landscaped around dunes and the rough. The quality of the greens are outstanding, giving a carpet effect!
The Craigielaw Golf Course :
A golfers paradise a links in the purest Scottish tradition, a must in the Lothian region. Again the quality of the greens is irreproachable.
The North Berwick Golf Club :
Similar to the mentioned golf courses, this championship links has hosted in the last 6 years, many international tournaments. Six holes run along the sea, and sometimes at high tide the sea flirts with the fairways, which limits considerably game but provides a charming and lasting golfing memory of this course.
Ideally located, the Motel is only 5 minutes walk from the train station and only 800 meters from the castle. For history buffs, Sainte-Marguerite Chapel, Half Moon Battery and the David’s tower are only a 10-minute walk away.

The Old Town of Edinburgh is a must for history and architecture lovers.
