I stayed her for two nights in April. The hotel is a short 5 minute walk from the tram stop in which we travelled from the airport. We arrived very early (approximately 9am) our room was understandably not ready yet but we were told by the helpful receptionist that she would ask the cleaning staff to do up our room...

Spent a night here and can't say I'm disappointed. Lovely room, cracking views. Breakfast really nice. Only problem I can say is the temperature in the room through the night was unbareable as it was far too hot and had to open the window mid way through the night. But all in all a nice please note experience

What a lovely place to stay in Edinburgh. Close to the station and easy to find. Friendly, helpful staff. Room was lovely with a view of the castle and the breakfast was really tasty. An excellent place to stay. We will definitely visit again.

Beautiful building and character. The staff were pleasant. The room was well decorated, the bed was comfy and was fairly clean although I found a receipt which wasn't ours by the side of the armchair, the sealant in the shower was layered up (which we found was probably to stop the shower leaking (which it did every time we used...

Hotel was clean, comfortable and really well located for walking into the city (and Dean Village a hidden gem). Nice to have reasonable metered parking close to the hotel and nice communal areas with free coffee. Stylish and nice décor with helpful staff. Good choice for a traditional Scottish breakfast although I am not sure the French couple opposite understood...

Outstanding B&B with truly superb staff! Well maintained with a wonderful breakfast. Within easy walking distance to many restaurants and other attractions. Had a room on the 4th floor along the back of the building with an incredible view. Would highly recommend this B&B!

Took my parents away for the weekend and they are sometimes difficult to please when it comes to hotels, however this one really did manage to please. The building itself is beautiful and stunning, it's not quite the traditional hotel experience but I think that made it. The feel is very relaxed and it's almost as if you running the...

So, I booked us into this hotel, on the back of numerous good reviews, and enthusiastic customers stating 'boutique hotel' etc. We booked in for three nights, aiming to see a lot of the sights in Edinburgh, and then have a little haven to come back to. Admittedly I did only book as a double room - I guess this...

This was honestly one of the most beautiful hotels I've stayed in. The architecture outside and in the public areas inside are all stunning. The rooms themselves are rather more basic and modern, but I still liked mine. The welcoming staff at reception upgraded me for free on arrival as there was obviously a larger room available. There was a...

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.
