Hotel Indigo Edinburgh on a Christmas Mission

This Christmas our Edinburgh hotel is getting involved in Forth One’s Mission Christmas, as a designated drop-off point for donated presents. Mission Christmas is asking people to share the love and buy an extra Christmas present that can be given to a disadvantaged local child, to make their Christmas morning special.

Our hotel in Edinburgh city centre is also offering all those who drop a present off at their hotel a complimentary tea or coffee and a delicious mince pie, as thanks to everyone who helps support this worthwhile cause.

Lynsay Findlay, General Manager at the Edinburgh hotel has personally given gifts to the mission for over 5 years and is delighted that her hotel is now a drop-off spot.

“Guests, locals and staff alike have been getting involved and dropping off presents of all shapes and sizes at the hotel”, says Lynsay.

“Getting a present on Christmas morning is something we all often take for granted, and it’s easy to forget that there are millions of children living in poverty who won’t receive a thing. But every child deserves something to open on Christmas Day and that’s why we are getting behind this cause.  We know that every present in that box is guaranteed to bring a smile to a child.”

Staff at our hotel in Edinburgh city centre are all donating £10 from their Christmas tips this year, that normally goes towards their Christmas party, to buy a present to brighten up a child’s Christmas day.

In 2015 Forth One raised over £773,200 in gifts and cash and supported over 14,200 local children. There are almost 600 drop off points across Edinburgh, the Lothians and Fife.

Our Edinburgh hotel is located in the heart of the Scottish capital within walking distance of both Princes Street and Edinburgh castle.

The Edinburgh hotel boasts 60 individually decorated rooms which are all designed with very best of style and comfort, fitted with double beds with luxurious Egyptian cotton linen. Set within a category A listed building dating back to the 18th century the hotel which was originally five residential properties and still retains some of the original features including a decorative stairwell and unique cupola.

Hotel Indigo Edinburgh Reviews



This hotel is such a great find. Its location cannot be beat and the rooms are incredibly nice. Great amenities (including complimentary mini bar) and great service. Would definitely stay here again!


Newcastle upon Tyne

I stayed here overnight to see Justin Timberlake on his Man of The Woods Tour. We were greeted with the warmest welcome by the receptionist...genuinely helpful and friendly. We stayed in the Suite, which has everything I could possibly need. A FREE (well stocked) mini bar! Robes, Aveda toiletries, slippers, free calls, a very appreciated cafetiere with ground coffee and a lovely selection of teas. 30mins in and a welcome plate arrived with 5 good size desserts...gorgeous.

Room service was excellent and the breakfast was utterly delicious and brought to the room at no extra charge. The room was very large and spacious with a huge double bed, blissfully comfortable. When needed in the evening the staff pressed a button at reception and a taxi arrived within 2 minutes...Outstanding service!

I had such a fantastic stay here that I shall return in November and I'll be re-booking this Suite.


Kingston upon Hull

Less than 10 mins walk from Waverley. Staff were very polite, helpful and friendly throughout our stay. Room was a good size with a great bathroom. Large shower, robes and Aveda products included. Fridge with free cold drinks. Good breakfast with plenty of choice. Both couples enjoyed and would stay again.



Really nice friendly boutique hotel. We didn't arrive until late but the hotel was more than happy to let us check in late. After checking in we also asked for some area recommendations, which again the staff were more than happy to give us. Our room was really nice and very clean, bed was comfortable and gave us a good night sleep. We stayed for two night and did not hear any noise from the hotel or any of the other guest. In a good location with only a short walk to the shops and restaurant/cinema ! If staying on Edinburgh I would highly recommend this hotel!



Stayed for one night, but very impressed. Receptionist was fantastic, very professional, helpful, good looking and immaculately presented. The room was excellent, very clean, bed comfortable and the shower was fantastic, hot and powerful.

Breakfast well worth the money, with attention to detail and served hot. The location is excellent with just a 10 minutes walk from the station and to Princess Street. I will definitely stay here again.

Great boutique hotel and great value for money. Wish I was staying for longer.



Had a one night stay here. The location is great, right beside a Tram Stop, 2 minute walk to St Andrews Square bus station, 15 min from Waverley Train station and short walk to main shopping and restaurants. Hotel was very clean & comfortable. Good Breakfast. Very friendly staff.



Really nice hotel in a fantastic location for train station, shopping and nightlife. Lovely rooms, with complimentary snacks and lovely Aveda toiletries in the room. Bed was really comfortable, breakfast was also excellent and the staff very friendly. Would definitely recommend this hotel to family and friends visiting Edinburgh.



Visited the hotel and stayed 2 nights having stayed at the Indigo in London. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Lovely rooms, great service, very good location opposite the tram stop and bus routes.
Lovely bar and restaurant is on site if you prefer to stay close for dinner!



I stayed at Hotel Indigo for first time last week, the service from the reception, bar and restaurant staff was faultless. The room was very comfortable and the bed was the comfiest i have ever slept in. The Hotel is situated close to the Playhouse and only 5 minute walk from waverley station, there are several good bars and restaurants in the vicinity. A great Hotel in a good area.
