94DR

Description

94DR is a 6 bedroom luxury, spacious, self-catering Edinburgh Townhouse with on-site parking and bags of social space with its own private south-facing garden.

Although the world may be different, our commitment to service through style, informality, and relaxed luxury remains unchanged. So it’s in the spirit of chartering a yacht, reserving a fully catered ski chalet, or planning an exclusive use country house, that we’re planning our path forward. Our concept is simple when you book 94DR for groups of up to 12 and it is yours exclusively on a self-catering basis with the option to add any of our food and service packages.

We have designed a range of packages to suit the needs of all groups. Whether that’s being totally spoiled and looked after by us and our small team of housekeepers, chefs, and host, or free to cater for yourselves. We will be guided by what’s right for you.

Our vision has always been to create a small friendly place with a BIG personality. We wanted a place for you to feel at home, even when your miles away from your own. 94DR is where flamboyant energy meets relaxation, where classic meets modernity, where luxury meets experience.

Whether you’ve called us your Edinburgh home since the day we first opened our doors over 14 years ago or you’re looking to join us for the very first time, we want to extend our warmest welcome and start by saying: we can’t wait to see you.
