Description Sheraton Grand Hotel & Spa
Situated in the dramatic shadows of Edinburgh Castle, the Sheraton Grand has been a popular gathering place at the heart of the city for many years, and following complete refurbishment, there could be no better time to rediscover this unique destination.
From the moment you set foot inside the granite-floored lobby, you will feel perfectly at home. The Library, with its welcoming fireplace and refined colour palette, offers a haven of tranquillity, while Link@sheraton ™ makes it easy to catch up with friends or connect with the world outside.
Drawing inspiration from the grand cafés of Europe, our new restaurant and bar, One Square, serves a deliciously inventive range of classic British dishes all day long, from laid-back brunch and indulgent afternoon tea to relaxed late-night dining. Thanks to its tempting drinks list, and inviting outdoor Terrace, One Square is fast becoming the venue of choice for hotel guests and locals alike.
Of course, if you’d prefer a quiet night in, our stylish bedrooms won’t disappoint. Blending contemporary comfort and subtly Scottish materials, these feature mood lighting, media hubs and glass-walled bathrooms. Guests staying on our luxurious Club Level have exclusive access to the Club Lounge – where they can savour a complimentary breakfast, and help themselves to a drink or snack.
While much has changed, some things at the Sheraton Grand have always been hard to beat, from One Spa's iconic rooftop Hydropool, soothing Thermal Suite and Spa Treatments, to the breathtaking views of the Edinburgh skyline.

Stirling Castle is located in Stirling, on top of the Castle Crag. The western face of the rock drops 80m down, but the site is naturally well defended form three sides. Historically, the castle guarded a desirable crossing on the river Forth and effectively, the access to the Highlands from the south.

The castle is approached via fortifications of the Forework: the Gatehouse, the curtain wall, ditch and several towers. Majority of the important buildings inside the walls date from the 15th and 16th centuries. The most important ones are located around the Upper Square: the Palace, The Great Hall, built as venue for state occasions, the Chapel, and King's Old Building. Other attractions include the basement Great Kitchens, the Nether Bailey and the Tapestry Studio.
