Most Edinburgh residents won’t have had the pleasure of spending a night in Angels Share, but they’ll have no trouble in directing tourists there. The retreat stands out a mile, not just on account of the majestic building, but also thanks to the kilted gentleman who’s often stationed out front. It’s a small touch, but it’s one which adds to the hotel’s reputation and helps to ensure that Asian and American tourists in particular are drawn to this very Scottish-looking establishment. Named after that part of the whisky barrel which is lost to evaporation – affectionately known as the angel’s share – the hotel can be found on Hope Street in the New Town, with Princes Street just a short walk away. Standard rooms are anything but standard, with Egyptian cotton sheets, flatscreen TVs, iPod docking stations, stationery, fine Scottish toiletries, dressing gowns and a fully stocked minibar. Superior rooms add dramatically more space, while deluxe double rooms boast super king-size beds and a seating area which forms a living space in which to relax and unwind. 24-hour room service without tray charge and complimentary fairtrade tea trays come as standard. Angels Share Hotel is a popular retreat for weekend breaks and, due to its central location, is particularly prized for retail excursions. Hit the town, load up, deposit your bags back at base and then do it all over again. In the evening, the hotel’s Club Room is the place to head for locally sourced food that’s been cooked to perfection. Enjoy a sumptuous meal from the a la carte menu before unwinding at the cocktail and whisky bar which is stocked with an enviable selection of single malts. It’s the perfect end to the perfect day in the perfect Edinburgh hotel.
