THE SEmpill

An extravagantly velvet-draped four-poster bed is the centrepiece of this large suite with its red velvet bedroom, separate sitting room and panelled dining hall.

Named after the aristocratic Sempill family who purchased this property in 1743 as their grand Edinburgh residence. Now in the Witchery's trademark style, it is full of interesting antiques, objects and fantastically indulgent finishes such a velvet-upholstered bedroom and leather panelled walls.

The Sempill Suite has a similar layout to the Guard Room and Armoury suites, with a dining hall, sitting room, and bathroom with a large bedroom at the rear.  It has a ground floor door and just four steps to reach the rooms.

The décor includes a gothic panelled hall with Paisley-lined walls, a sitting room panelled with antique leather and an oak four-poster bed in the romantically dark and dramatic red bedroom hung with masses of antique velvet.
