About Masquerade Party

The Roxburghe Hotel, 38 Charlotte Square, Edinburgh, EH2 4HQ

A cosmopolitan clubhouse in Scotland’s historic capital city.

Overlooking one of Edinburgh’s prettiest private garden squares, The Principal Edinburgh Charlotte Square — formerly The Roxburghe Hotel — consists of seven inter-connecting Georgian townhouses in the heart of the New Town, a UNESCO world heritage site.

As the newest Principal hotel, it has undergone a multi-million restoration and refurbishment: all of our bedrooms and suites have been given a smart, new look, inspired by the golden age of travel and a genuine sense of Scottish hospitality. Guests familiar with PRINCIPAL will find familiar touch points, including the red bedside telephone, tuck box of treats and a vintage post box.

Our beautiful internal courtyard, The Garden — an oasis of calm with a glass roof — is now open from breakfast through to the wee hours.

Free, superfast Wi-Fi with a maximum bandwidth of 100Mb is available throughout the hotel.

Stayed for one night already, and love it! Came here from another hotel, they looked after us well, the hotel rooms are really quiet, and nicely decorated. The breakfast is great, the staff is really friendly and easy to talk to. The menus look great, haven't been to the restaurant but I know i'm going to have a good time! Definitely remommend this place 10 times over.

Beautifully appointed hotel right in the heart of Edinburgh. Room was quiet even though the windows looked out over George Street. Breakfast in the glassed over courtyard was great. We were well looked after :)

A very nice looking hotel. I went to a comic art event there. The hotel reception staff were very polite and explained exactly where in the building the event was.

Cannot rate our stay at the Principal high enough! The accommodation was first rate. I have to say though - it was the staff who made our stay so great! They couldn't do enough for us!! When we come back to Edinburgh we will be staying at The Principal again!!!

Quite and posh place. From the first look you won't see it as the usual 4 start hotel but service and amenities are actually 4 star worth and that's what matters. Environment is good and quite. Good selection of all amenities are present. Also it's a really good place for office meeting good wifi connection. Big projector big enough room for big team events.
