My family chose to have our Christmas Day meal at the Family Carvery being offered by the Doubletree Hotel, and we had an excellent experience. The staff were very helpful, the food excellent both in terms of quality and choice, and an activities room for the five boys with us meant that they fully enjoyed the experience. As Grandad, I...

I stayed here on business and got a great rate (<£70 0per night, breakfast an extra £10). First impressions were good. Reception staff were friendly, check in was quick and I got a warm cookie! The room was ok (bit of a weird shape, very long and narrow) - clean and pretty well equipped. Breakfast was excellent, with one small...

Views of the Castle which was nice Bit noisey early in the morning due to bins being collected, but it's a City, so what do you expect Breakfast is well worth it, top quality and great selection. Service is top notch,...

Good hotel let down by a few issues. Firstly the hotel is in a good location walking distance to haymarket station and right next to Edinburgh Castle with some stunning views. There are many shops and cinema close by too. Rooms are big and fairly modern but quite dusty in places. Main issues were with poor breakfast quality, air conditioning...

Large - 140 rooms – business/tourist hotel located in central Edinburgh. The exterior of the building of the hotel is oldish and gives the impression that it has been converted from an old office building – I am uncertain if this is correct. However, the interior lacks a certain amount of charm or architectural merit. Apart from this observation, the...

Dear Marc S, Thank you for taking the time to review the hotel after your recent stay. I am happy to read that you thoroughly enjoyed your stay with us and can confirm that the hotel was converted from a Co-Operative Department store with the building dating back to 1892, 1912 and 1935 as the building is actually in 3...

Great central location, lovely breakfast. The bedroom was extremely dark, not very handy when you want to put makeup on- The little desk mirror was not a great substitute for a decent lamp! Nice view of the castle made up for the lack of light.

We arrived ready for our final night in Europe - with an early flight, they couldn't have been nicer about arranging for the 0230 wake up call, then vouchers for a drink in the lounge b/c of some inconvenience (TV didn't work in our room). My daughter LOVED their portobello mushrooms - still raves about the basil and nut gratin,...

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.
