About this location

The Edinburgh region

Cornwall Street offers spectacular views of Edinburgh Castle and is very convenient location from which to explore Edinburgh being within easy walking distance of both Princes Street and the Royal mile. There are a wealth of architectural gems and tourist attractions in the surrounding area as well as a great choice of restaurants, bars, cafes and shops.


Edinburgh is world famous for it's fringe and international festival which take place in August as well as the splendid Hogmanay celebrations, but it is a year round tourist destination with plenty to see and do in every season. Most of our visitors find that one trip is simply not enough.
