The Witchery by the Castle
Bewitched by The Witchery Everything you’ve seen and read about Edinburgh is true - it is a truly beautiful city! It’s like going back in time when you walk down some of the ancient cobbled streets close to the drama of the castle on the rock, and staying at The Witchery can only intensify and expand this fantasy. These elaborate, decadent suites close to the Royal Mile are a surprise and a delight, which is why they have become so popular within the luxury accommodation category of Edinburgh. The suites are located above the Witchery restaurant, and in the adjacent seventeenth-century Sempill’s Court. The restaurant has been going for some 4 decades and has to be one of the most visually beautiful restaurants, ever. Designed according to the ‘more is most definitely more’ philosophy, the nine suites are like movie sets, dressed with fascinatingly eclectic clutter; all jewel-coloured velvets, silks and brocades, carved wood, gilding and candle-light. Beds are dramatically draped or four-postered (or both); chin-deep bateau baths are perfect for sharing. Behind hidden doors - a dining hall, sitting room, dressing room or study…. so you probably won’t want to leave the comfort of your suite – perfect for a glamorous, romantic weekend away. This is an indulgent treat kind of weekend, as prices start at £335 per suite per night, including breakfast served in your suite or the stunning candle-lit dining room restaurant. You also receive lots of nice complimentary things like cookies, chocolate and a bottle of Champagne when you arrive. Each of the Witchery’s sumptuous suites have their own charms and quirks, but all are lavish, sumptuous, gothic and luxuriously opulent…. Behold, the magic of the Witchery, it will cast a spell on you!
