The Heriot

Grandeur at its finest in The Heriot...

Named after the founder of the nearby George Heriot's school, this second-floor suite looks south over the Old Town towards the glorious 17th-century building that is Heriot's today. It is easy to understand why it is thought to have inspired Hogwarts!

Entered from a dramatic black and gold hallway, the Heriot's sitting room is panelled with ancient oak panels from St Giles' Cathedral and has walls hung with tapestry. Striking antler furniture feature in the dining area, inviting you to enjoy breakfast.

A sumptuous four-poster bed, complete with a grand gothic headboard, is lavishly draped with embroidered green and gold velvet hangings. Off of the bedroom is a walk-in dressing room with dressing table and masses of wardrobe space. The gothic chapel-like bathroom is a final hidden delight.

The Heriot's bathroom features a free-standing roll-top bath, a dramatically painted ceiling and gilded and mirrored gothic panelling.

Enchantment awaits in The Heriot...
