At first I wasn't sure if I'd like this hotel/b&b however upon being shown the room all my doubts disappeared. Room was clean, had a hairdryer that wasn't in the bathroom, several mirrors and a dressing table area. The room was much larger than we needed but decorated in a traditional fashion for the Georgian property. The room was a...

The hotel was just perfect! The decor and interior was so traditional throughout and then you get to your room and it was such a modern style. The room was comfortable and quiet, normal amenities Kettle, heater, hot water bottle, iron etc. It was cozy, had free view on the TV for evening movies. Breakfast included was fantastic and their...

Stayed here for one night. Very clean and warm with friendly staff. Although only a 20 minute walk from main shops/city centre, it was situated in a fairly quiet area with a tesco express and m&s food shop nearby. Tea/coffee facilities were in the room, along with towels and some toiletries (body/hair wash and soap). There were various tourist info...

Very nice and clean accommodation although could do with a bar. Four poster room with nice en-suite, TV, wifi etc. Just a little bit too far from the main golden mile and shops, although would be better in the warmer months. Haymarket buses and trams are just a minute's walk over the road. Quiet and homely, would recommend if happy...

I had a basement room which was homely, comfortable and warm, it felt like my own space, private and quiet as the other basement room wasn't occupied. Convenient for rail, tram and sightseeing. Quality of breakfast was very high and a good selection was on offer. Staff were friendly and polite.

We've just returned from a five night stay at the Lairg. After reading previous reviews we were a little apprehensive. We are aware people have their own opinions & expectations. Personally we enjoyed staying in The Lairg. There was a variety of breakfast options and the full Scottish breakfast was plentiful and served hot. The staff were very pleasant and...

I've given the Lairg a five star rating based on value for money. We had a three night stay in December. The room was clean and warm with a good shower and comfortable bed with cotton linen. The staff are efficient with little or no interest in interacting with guests. But that is a small point. I would return to...

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.
