More Information

Free WiFi Internet Access**Situated in an elegant tree-lined terrace, overlooking the Firth of Forth, is the Ailsa Craig Hotel. Designed by the renowned architect William Playfair as a family town house for a wealthy merchant, this is a traditional Georgian building, built in 1820, which has been tastefully refurbished throughout, whilst retaining many of the original fine architectural features. The hotel is ideally situated for both business and leisure guests, being a 10 minute walk from the bustling cosmopolitan heart of the City. Access to Edinburgh's International Conference Centre, the Airport and motorway networks is very convenient, and Waverley train and St Andrew Square bus station are close by. Our welcoming en-suite rooms offer the discerning traveller all the comforts expected, including colour television, tea & coffee making facilities, hair dryer and telephone. Most of the hotel's rooms provide wonderful views over Royal Terrace gardens and out to the Firth of Forth, or the tranquility of our own private gardens to the rear. Just a short walk from the hotel is the world famous Princes Street with its magnificent views of the Castle which overlooks the city.
