Style of hotel and ambience

Feel welcomed at the hotel Howard, built in 1829. Each of the rooms is elegantly and individually furnished and features modern amenities including complimentary Wi-Fi. A butler service cares for you and fulfils your wishes. The Georgian dining room provides a private dining experience where you can taste modern Scottish dishes.

Special features of the hotel

A key feature of the service at The Howard hotel is the butler - actually a collection of butlers, who take care of everything from car parking to ironing to late-night room service to theatre bookings. You will find them very useful, whatever your reason for being in Edinburgh. The Howard also has its own intimate restaurant, The Atholl. This was originally intended as a dining room just for guests, but proved so popular with local residents - especially for our famous afternoon tea - that it has grown into a properly sophisticated, luxury restaurant. It only seats 14, however; so don't forget to book.
