The Witchery Restaurant and Rooms
Edinburgh and The Lothians

A real Edinburgh institution in its fourth decade of operation, the Witchery is a small boutique property comprised of 8 theatrical suites and a beautiful restaurant. Located in the city's Old Town, the Witchery can be found a few steps from the entrance to Edinburgh Castle. The superb interiors transport you back into another era rooms have names like 'Amoury', 'Library' and 'Guardroom' and contain four poster beds with heavy drapes, antique tapestries and rich, colourful fabrics that run from curtains to cushions. Bathrooms look like Middle-Age monasteries as candlelight flickers on rich red and gold-leaf walls. However, stuffy and traditional it is not guests will be blown away by the romantic and luxurious feel of this small hotel. The restaurant is a work of art lavish dried fruit displays and tapestries hang from the walls, golden candle-sticks light up tables of crisp white tablecloths and wood-panelled alcoves give way to floor-to-ceiling French windows. Served-up is Scotland's finest product seafood, beef, lamb and game are all excellent, unless of course you fancy trying the haggis.

To my mind, the greatest reward and luxury of travel is to be able to experience everyday things as if for the first time, to be in a position in which almost nothing is so familiar it is taken for granted.

Client Testimonials

I had a very lovely time and was looked after splendidly. My first visit to India could not have been better, save for being longer! But I shall return at some point and I shall look to you to make the arrangements.
- Matthew Nicklin, North India
Ampersand’s preparation, attention to detail and interaction before and during our trip show exactly why good travel agents have a role in today’s internet booking age. They were a delight to deal with!
- Mr David Wallace, North India
Everything you did for us whilst we were away was hugely appreciated, and Ampersand has been exemplary in every way. I'll always recommend you!
- Mr Richard Stoughton, Sri Lanka
Ampersand provided a bespoke and flexible holiday, tailored to my every whim. Their highly professional staff had only one goal which was to arrange an exceptional holiday and some unforgettable experiences in India. I have no hesitation in fully recommending them and they will be the first company I approach in the future - 10/10
- Anonymous, India
I would recommend Ampersand without any hesitation!!! The best travel agent that I’ve ever had. Everything – from the individual care and attention in planning the trip, through to the efficiency of the agents on the ground in India – was handled brilliantly. An absolutely first-class service all round!
- Matthew Annable, Rajasthan, India
So many highlights to choose from! The hotels were amazing but Maya Villa was a highlight… I loved just hanging out in the hammock reading my book and watching the peacocks chase the cows!
- Krista Weir, Sri Lanka
I thought the Ampersand team was outstanding. We couldn’t have hoped for anything more.

Without question, you put together the best trip I have ever taken. We were shown around like visiting dignitaries, the hotels were fantastic and the itinerary was just right. Everybody I know will hear about how amazing Ampersand is!

We had a wonderful holiday - everything was perfect. Thank you for helping us to make a thoughtful plan to enjoy and make most out of our trip. The places we visited, the guides, the transportation and driver, the hotels selected... Everything was great!
