The Principal Edinburgh Charlotte Square

Overview

Formerly The Roxburghe Hotel. A storied hotel in Edinburgh, The Principal Edinburgh Charlotte Square is sure to impress. Experience a blend of modern hospitality with a traditional Scottish experience.

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 Eastern Mediterranean, our new restaurant, BABA is brought to you by the team behind Glasgow’s award-winning Ox and Finch restaurant.

What Our Clients Say

“First of all, thank you for an extraordinary trip - epic even. Most of our group, myself included, travel extensively around the world and we all came away saying this was one of the best trips ever. You and Bill - and the rest of the crew - did a fantastic job. ”

- Patrick Rona, Singapore

“There are no words to thank you for setting up such a wonderful week for our golf trip to Scotland. What started out as a golf trip, turned into so much more because of Scotland for Golf. I doubt if other companies can provide the personal touch and laughter we experienced all week. Those special touches will not be forgotten. I have so many wonderful memories and pictures. I cannot thank you enough for your kindness, patience and humour. I had such a lovely time each time that you drove us from place to place and shared your favourite sites and stories with us.”

- Penny Reynen, USA
