Royal Garden Apartments

New Town, Edinburgh

Picture this. Elegant grey-stone exteriors and rows of French windows against the Edinburgh sky. You’ve arrived at sophisticated Royal Garden Apartments. Pops of gold and bronze finishings adorn the pristine walls inside, and lush velvet sofas invite you to lay back and relax. But don’t get comfortable just yet, there’s much to explore. Start off with a walk through history at The Scottish National Portrait Gallery (just one minute away). Or make your way to Edinburgh Castle and let the fairytale views inspire you. Feel peckish? The crowds will be your guide as you hop in and out of quaint bakeries, lively pubs, and eclectic eateries. Wherever your adventures take you, Royal Garden Apartments provides the perfect base for your stay.
