Kimpton Hotel Charlotte Square
Address: 38 Charlotte Square, Edinburgh EH2 4HQ
Overlooking one of Edinburgh’s prettiest private garden squares, Kimpton Charlotte Square Hotel consists of seven interconnected Georgian townhouses. Outside is where you’ll find the New Town, a UNESCO World Heritage Site that’s delightfully removed from the city’s tourist hubs. But it’s inside where things really get interesting. The newly renovated interior blends handsome woods, plush fabrics, and rich pops of color—and, yes, just a touch of tartan—to luxurious effect. And with a magnetic inner courtyard and an acclaimed Middle Eastern restaurant, it’s no wonder the hotel has become a natural meeting point and a sociable heart of modern life.
Chateau Rhianfa Hotel is a stunning Grade II* listed Victorian home, modelled on the 16th-century French Renaissance château of Chenonceau. It has a film set location, (it starred in ITV’s Cold Feet) standing amidst spectacular gardens on the Menai Straits with commanding views over the towering peaks of the Snowdonia mountain range.
The look is cool, clean and modern, with subdued tones specially chosen so that the art punches out from the walls. One space in particular—called, appropriately enough, Oriel (meaning gallery in Welsh) is probably the most artsy lounge we’ve ever come across. Well-proportioned bedrooms and spacious suites come with uber comfy, super king-sized beds and impeccable bathrooms, while the Blas restaurant specializes in fine dining based on locally sourced ingredients. The Pembrokeshire sense of place is carefully name-checked on every menu.
