Dark, gothic and thoroughly theatrical...if you can get a room – the Witchery is the place to indulge yourself

Hidden in a collection of buildings on Castlehill, the Witchery by the Castle has just nine fabulously original and indulgent suites. Frequently described as one of the world's most romantic destinations and as one of the seven wonders of the hotel world by Cosmopolitan, each has its own unique quirks and charms.

Whichever suite you choose you'll find glamour, indulgence, luxury and roll top baths for two.

Rates from £335 per suite per night include a bottle of Champagne, cookies, mineral water, turn down service, newspaper and breakfast. Choose between our renowned breakfast hamper served in your suite or a traditional Scottish cooked breakfast served in the candlelit splendour of the Original Witchery Dining Room.

The Witchery Suites are not suitable for children.

In a world of identikit could-be-anywhere hotels, thank goodness for the Witchery.

The Turret

The Turret is the Witchery's latest suite, open in July 2013. One of the largest of the Witchery's suites it takes its name from the historic stone turret that forms its entrance.

The Turret is entered from a tapestry-lined lobby which leads to a large sittingroom with panelled walls in lacquer red. An even larger bedroom is hung with tapestries and features a super-king sized bed. Double doors lead to a large bathroom, lined with historic oak panelling. The bathroom features a central silver bateau bath and twin wash hand basins and a spectacular gothic floor.
