A lovely family run hotel we received a very warm welcome! The lounge is so relaxing sitting around a large flamed fire. Breakfast was good too! Only negative is if you travel by car the parking is expensive and a hassle! Certainly worth a visit!

Not a bad location within 15-20 mins of most things in foot. Staff are welcoming and friendly. The breakfast was very nice. The bedroom was ok, comfortable other than the bedding was a little low down the bed but that was a minor thing. Overall, a pleasant place to stay

The hotel was warm and inviting when we got there, the staff were friendly, the room was lovely. When we got into our room it was a little cold and the heaters are 'smart' heaters and it was 'locked'; the receptionist ensured by the time we returned from dinner the room would be the correct temperature which it was, lovely...

From the airport No 35 bus, 60p - make sure you have correct change - get off at the stop just after Fountain complex and you're almost at the hotel. We were on a deal, and it was very good value. Our room was big yet others were complaining how small there's was, so I am reluctant to generalise. Some...

Not quite what we expected, didn't get the prosecco with the afternoon tea, was told it was going to be put in room but wasn't. We bought off living social had to pay extra £40 for going on a Saturday.

We booked this hotel on a package deal and so price-wise for Edinburgh it is very reasonable. The afternoon tea/prosecco was a lovely extra. However, we were charged £20 for an "upgrade" to a twin room, but the tap in the bathroom was very loose, there was no bath mat which made the floor slippery when wet, the window wouldn't...

Having just visited this hotel with group of 6 I was quite impressed. I had been keeping my eye on reviews for it ever since I booked and was worried by all the negative comments. On arrival it looked clean fresh and welcoming and we were greeted by friendly staff. All our rooms were decorated to a high standard and...

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.
