Best Luxury Hotels in Edinburgh

For the eaters and drinkers, there are more pubs, bars and restaurants than you can shake a bagpipe at. From elegant fine dining to rustic and wholesome catch of the day, the city is a food lovers dream and of course, everything should be washed down with a wee dram.
