Just returned from a lovey stay at the hotel. The room was lovely and spacious overlooking the road. A couple of points for improvement was we had to ask for our case to be delivered and chase for the bottle of Proseco as it was 10mins late. The evening meal was delicious, we had the pheasant. Overall very good, but... More

Spent a night at The Bonham when visiting Edinburgh to see a show. An excellent hotel in the city centre. Convenient for all major attractions. The best views from the hotel are from the rooms to the rear as they overlook the dean village towards Fife. The car park is a little on the small side but if you double... More

I like the Bonham, but I do find it frustrating. The location, building and bedrooms are very good, and there is some on site parking if you arrive early enough. Unfortunately, little things that should be givens are wrong. My wife had to come and find me to let me in from the car park as repeated attempts on the... More

Where to begin? We loved this hotel and stayed two nights. Four gals taking a break from family and work and The Bonham was a delight in our Scotland week. From check-in with super friendly and helpful Susannah to drinks served by the very amusing Louis (and everyone else there as pleasant as anyone could be) it created a perfect... More

I recently stayed at the Bonham on a Thursday night treat with my husband and was very pleased when we arrived as the lobby and general feel of the hotel was luxe and modern which I love.

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.
