Full Description
  • The Principal Edinburgh on Charlotte Square has been welcoming guests since 1848. Overlooking one of Edinburgh’s prettiest private gardens, our hotel is something of a find. Period Georgian features from the domestic homes that form the heart of the hotel combine with gorgeously appointed new bedrooms and suites that reference the golden age of travel and genuine Scottish hospitality. Beyond the front door and the hotel lobby, the Garden welcomes guests and visitors, as civilised a spot as you’ll find in the city; and the hotel spa will pamper the weariest traveller. At the Principal Edinburgh Charlotte Square, spectacular 18th century combined with contemporary solutions and stunning details come together to set the stage for a gorgeous wedding day.
