We stayed at the Thistle Hotel from 03/03/12 to 05/03/12. The hotel itself is a beautiful Georgian building in the West End of Edinburgh's New Town. It's only a few minutes walk from Haymarket Station so I would recommend that you use this station if travelling by train. The room was large & spacious with a generous sized bed and small bathroom but the lack of bath was no problem as we would not have used it. There was also a large flat screen tv.

Continental breakfast was included in our room rate and was also very generous. There is a choice of juices, tea or coffee, choice of cereals, toast, pain au chocolate, fresh fruit, yogurts and warm croissants!

The staff were all very friendly & helpful and when we checked out they kindly offered to have our bags while we finished off our visit.

Edinburgh is a beautiful city which we really enjoyed visiting. Whether you want to go sightseeing or shop there is something for everyone. I would recommend this hotel to everyone as it is well placed for everything Edinburgh has to offer and has the added bonus of the character of the building as well as being in a quiet street which ensures a good night sleep!

My young son and I were made to feel very welcome during our recent stay. John on reception was so very kind and helpful in arranging a room with a dvd player for my young son to use during our stay. The hotel was very clean indeed and had a cared for feeling to the place. I really would recommend this hotel and i would like to thank the staff for making our stay so enjoyable.

What a delightful experience the hotel and its staff provide - such lovely people, spacious rooms, the atmosphere is lovely. Would have no hesitation recommending this lovely hotel and will definitely be back. A short walk into the city centre and its quiet location makes this hotel ideal for business or pleasure.

Not to be confused with the chain of hotels under the same name, this delightful establishment is full of character and helpful staff. The location in a quiet and pleasant street is a relatively short distance from the City Centre. The building is traditional with tall, clean, spacious rooms. Nothing is too much trouble for the staff and the breakfasts are fantastic. I use the hotel regularly on frequent business trips and recommend it without reservation.
