Just called in for a pint or two in this nice pub/hotel. Apparently the hotel part is very good. The rooms look nice, but I've only seen photos. There is a table in the bar strictly reserved for people waiting to check in. Its a proper pub with a well stocked bar running the whole length of the room and...

We stayed at the Inn on the Mile for my wife's 30th birthday. When we arrived, I had pre ordered a bottle of prosecco to be in the room, which it was. The hotel had gone the extra mile and put chocolate covered strawberries in the room also; lush touch! The room was very clean, fresh in decor and comfortable....

The Inn on the Mile is almost exactly midpoint on the Royal Mile in Edinburgh. You can't get a more centrally located hotel. Everything is walkable from this charming hotel. Also, with only 9 rooms, you get exceptional service. The rooms are all very modern and clean, with very comfy beds. They even had yummy treats in the room for...

Stayed here for one night as part of a business trip. It's like a restaurant with rooms so the reception desk is just to the side of the main bar. Having checked in, the staff were very good and accompanied me to the room to point out all the room features. One word of warning - I was on the...

Staying in Old Town

Neighbourhood Profile
Old Town
Few Edinburghers live in the Old Town, but its labyrinth of dank alleys and steep streets suggests this was not always the case. Today, it’s mostly visitors, tartan-flavoured souvenir shops, and pipers that you’ll find on its cobbled streets. This is the place to get a feel for Auld Reekie (Old Smelly), as the town was once nicknamed, and stroll the Royal Mile, the thoroughfare that links the castle with the royal palace – two of Edinburgh’s great set-piece attractions. But there’s lots more exploring to do here down dozens of little alleys, or wynds, while at night the city’s busiest clubs erupt along the Cowgate which is closed to traffic for this purpose.

“Go for exec room as not big a difference in cost, we used a comparison site rather than booking direct. We were top floor and no noise.”

“We stayed in room 2. The view was fab and the bathroom was the biggest by far compared to the other 2 Rooms on the floor. We had a free standing bath and a walk in rain shower. The are white company toiletries and god straightened so it's well equipped. Room 2 is classed as a superior room, however it was well worth the money and would defiantly recommend to those wanting to stay in Edinburgh. There are a lot of stairs but as to be expected in a beautiful building such as this. There is no lift due to the hotel being a grade A listed property so if stairs aren't your thing, opt for a lower room number such as 1,2 or 3. ”
