The Witchery  
by the Castle

Hidden in the heart of Edinburgh’s historic Old Town lies The Witchery, located at the top of Scotland’s famous Royal Mile. The original carved door lintel of this restored 16th-century tenement in Boswell's Court can just be made out with the motto, "O lord in thee is all my traist, 1595." The original winding turret staircase remains as well; the building has had various uses including that as a tea room, rectory to a nearby church and a meeting room for the Church of Scotland.

Guests of this historic, gothic-inspired hotel can dine on Scottish seafood, beef, and lamb at The Witchery’s highly regarded, and lavishly decorated, dining room. The dining room is open daily for lunch, dinner and “theatre supper.” James Thomson, the owner of The Witchery, is Scotland's best-known hotelier and was named "Restaurateur of the Year."

With just nine unique and theatrical inspired suites, guests will feel like royalty in this intimate space. Each room is individually named, from the Armoury and the Library to the Sempill and the Turret. Described by Cosmopolitan as "one of the seven wonders of the hotel world,” each room is completely unique, but all feature antiques, historic fittings and roll-top baths for two.

Just steps away from the Scotch Whisky Museum and the Scottish Parliament, The Witchery provides the perfect location for a uniquely fun getaway. Families take note - children cannot be accommodated at The Witchery; this gem is for adults only!
