The Guardroom

Gaze down at the Royal Mile from The Guardroom...

The Guardroom Suite is located in the former private townhouse of the Sempill family dating back to 1595, with romantic rooftop views over the Old Town to the historic New Town. The dramatic black and gold entrance hall lined with Guardsmen's uniforms leads to a red and gilt salon-style sitting room and lavish four poster bed. Oak panelling distinguishes the bathroom, with a marble floor and roll-top bath for two. To reach the suite, climb the original stone turnpike stair to the 2nd floor ... the views are worth every step.

Succumb to the lavish ambience of The Guardroom.
