...the best place to stay in Edinburgh. This Hotel is excellent, the staff are all fantastic & the breakfast is beautiful & filling. This was our 2nd New Year we'd spent at this hotel. An imposing building with lots of charm, the library is amazing.

Beautiful building in a very exclusive and quiet part of town. The views were spectacular, there cannot be many hotels in Edinburgh which have uninterrupted views to the castle from some of the bedroom windows. The public area are stunning and the breakfast room is one of the most impressive areas in which to start your day (great brekkie choice...

Briefly: Clean and nice rooms. Ask for room 14 -- even if you have to pay a little extra -- it is special and has a panoramic view of this beautiful town. Breakfast is rich and diverse (relative to other UK hotels, do not expect the richness a mediterranean breakfast). Kind and helpful staff. Unique library and bar. Unique decorations....

We have stayed here 3 nights in June 2014. We got a lovely and huge double room with sea-and cityview. The building is old a little bit, but it is very close to the city centre, 5 mins walk. There are nice restaurants and pubs around 5-10 mins walk as well. The breakfast was simple, could do it better with...

We booked this hotel because of the pictures and reviews, and we were very pleased with our decision. It is about a 25 min walk from the railway station or a £7:00 taxi ride. The house was built for the owner of the Scotsman news paper so the ground and first floors are old and spectacular if you like sweeping...

Ok, So I booked this place after trawling round the internet looking for somewhere nice for my girlfriends birthday. It looked great. Upon arrival I was impressed. Once in the room I found a grubby mark on the sheet and the window looked like it needed a lick of paint. I would have stayed there myself but as it was...

Second time we have stopped here. Lots of positives, comfortable rooms, free tea coffee and water. Friendly, helpful staff. Things that could improve, bar should be open after 11pm for residents and breakfast service need to be better organised.

Great place. Friendly Staff. AMAZING Scottish breakfast! The guest house looks like an ancient home with a very grand staircase. The only con is that parking is a bit too far. Its about a 5-7 min walk away.

Staying in West End

Neighbourhood Profile
West End
Prevailing winds meant that most cities that grew in industrial Britain had their most desirable neighbourhoods to the west – upwind of factory fumes. Edinburgh was no exception, with its wealthiest citizens settling in its West End and leaving behind grand Georgian townhouses, private gardens and genteel crescents. These backstreets remain as dignified and sleepy as ever, and most of the action here lies along the district’s busy main roads. Lothian Road connects to southern Edinburgh and harbors a vague entertainment district: three theatres and the city’s main indie cinema. All attract a select crowd, the sort who appreciate the Saturday Edinburgh’s Farmers’ Market around the corner. The West End’s other great thoroughfare, Shandwick Place, is dominated by trams trundling out to the suburbs and airport, and shoppers picking up last-minute items before hopping aboard.
