The room was grand and spacious but also managed to retain a cozy feel. I stayed in a room with an open bath tub and it was the best tub ive had a soak in... felt super luxurious. the staff were super welcoming and helpful on arrival, and made my stay really comfortable.
Amazing hotel, we didn’t want to leave. The staff are lovely and friendly. The art work and vibe to this hotel is very cool. The room we had was beautifully decorated and the bed was super comfortable. It’s definitely worth booking the breakfast , it’s one of the best full Scottish breakfast’s I’ve ever had. The location is just perfect for being in the heart of the city. Thanks so much for such a lovely stay, we can’t wait to come back.
Recently booked a long weekend break in Edinburgh and found 24 Royal Terrace through research on Tripadvisor - was not disappointed in the slightest. The room (number 11) was a beautifully grand Georgian room with high ceilings, bold art work and a divine free standing bath as a key feature in the middle. My husband, who is 6ft, was in heaven that he could (for the first time in his adult life) fit fully in a bath and have a relaxing soak! All the staff were friendly and happy to help - Tony helped by running us a whisky tasting experience with a days notice! A very interesting virtual tour around Scotland through the medium of whisky and (obviously) very tasty. The hotel is situated a 15 - 25 min walk from the train station (just depending if you walk over Calton Hill or around) and about a 10 mins walk to the Playhouse at the bottom of the road. Great location. I would recommend a stay at the hotel for it's uniqueness alone, but the whisky experience was just the cherry on the cake. Thank you.…
Great hotel with a lovely ambience, fantastic artwork, great location, comfortable beds and a great experience. Parking was no problem and the breakfast was 5 star. Room decor is great, good showers and handy for the playhouse. Whiskey bar also impressive.
It is difficult to know where to start on what is great about this hotel… the ambience and the artwork… the well stocked bar… the well fitted and comfortable rooms …the superb breakfasts… or the friendly and efficient staff. The location is also excellent as well. Highly recommended will certainly stay again.
I've stayed at the hotels on a number of occasions for work and leisure. The hotel is perfectly placed in one of the nicest locations in Edinburgh. There is free street parking between 6pm and 08:30am (Mon-Friday) but not too sure what the weekend charges are for street parking. There is plenty of street parking outside the hotel either way. Access to Arthur’s seat and the lower end of the royal mile is a 10 min walk. Access to Princes St, St James quarter St Andrews Sq is about 10 min walk in the other direction. Carlton Hill is directly behind the hotel and has amazing views. If you are arriving from the airport, you can take a tram to St Andrews Sq where the hotel is about 20minute walk. In Spring 2023 you will be able to take the tram to Picardy Place Stop where the hotel is a 5-10minute walk . The hotel is welcoming and nice and quiet. Breakfast is great with plenty of choice.…
A wonderful small hotel with a small but efficient team of staff. The hotel had all the benefits of not being partbof a large organisation. It felt like staying with friends rather than the bland corpoate alternatives. It is so close to the main features of the city centre, with a great arrangement for parking in Q-Park. We will definately go back.
An excellent little hotel, beautifully decorated and appointed, elegant rooms, very clean and fresh. Terrific artwork. Lovely breakfast. Overall great value for money. Someone with impeccable taste and attention to detail has spent a great deal of time and money on restoring and maintaining this townhouse. Very helpful and welcoming young man on duty -Jonathan? Bit of a climb to third floor - but worth it. An extremely well stocked bar downstairs and cute little red minibars in room. Looking forward to our next visit.
Gorgeous room, super comfy bed, beautiful bedlinen, super-soft dressing gowns ...... I could go on! Staff were incredibly friendly (lovely girl on reception who greeted us on arrival and made us feel so welcome) We arrived over 3hrs early and were just going to park car and go back later, but she advised us our room would be ready in half an hour anyway! Fabulous location too, AND ..... the breakfast!!!!!!! OMG! So delicious, toast was incredible too - I didn't eat again until after 7pm! Would definately stay again!
What a special place is. Set in an extremely quiet part of the city but only a few minutes from theatres, shops and restaurants. The building has been restored to a great condition with original high ceilings and cornices etc. In Edinburgh for a long weekend, a short walk took us from Waverley station to the hotel. On arrival cheerful staff met us, booked us in and showed us to our suite which was absolutely lovely. Situated at the rear overlooking the original gardens, we felt as though we were staying a country house not the middle of a bustling city. Plenty of space in the room with a king size bed, sofa and nice en-suite. Just adjacent to the small reception area is situated the bar, which is very trendy looking and cosy, with a fabulous collection of bright coloured paintings (as have the walls throughout!). A fantastic selection of whiskies is on hand as well as the extremely knowledgeable Tony who is more than happy to pass the time of day. No rush or hustle and bustle here! A cheery night porter is on hand every night to help with any queries after an evening out and serve a wee nightcap. Breakfast is served in the bar. Be warned! The portions are enormous. Self service for croissants, yogurt, cereals etc. We tried a number of the cooked to order hot dishes and they were all served promptly and hot. We really struggled to consume all the food on the plates whether it was the full Scottish, muffins with black pudding and Hollandaise sauce or scrambled egg with sausage and bacon. All quality produce and very well cooked. A lovely selection with something for everyone. It is also of note that breakfast is served from 8am through till 12 noon which means a long lie can be enjoyed without racing against the clock to have breakfast. A great idea. All the staff, without exception, were communicative and helpful and because the hotel is relatively small, we got to know them quickly. We had a very enjoyable stay and we offer no criticism. We will most certainly return and we have to say that this was one city break where we left feeling refreshed and relaxed. Forget the big corporate hotels. …
