We stayed here overnight with a deal the hotel had on their site and we had a lovely stay! The staff were very welcoming and the afternoon tea with prosecco was delicious! We found the hotel was about a 20 minute walk from the centre so it was handy. Rooms were lovely and the bed was something comfortable!! We will...

When you can't afford to pay £500 to stay right in the hussle and bustle you go for the second best option something that's nice comfortable accommodation that states it's 10 minutes walk from Edinburgh castle... maybe if you're Hussain bolt! It's a 30 minute walk to the castle easy! We arrived after a long drive to find the car...

A great little hotel that provides for an excellent stay in Edinburgh. Its location was within walking distance to the Castle and city centre but for those who might find this difficult there was a good number of local buses with a bus-stop only about 100m from the hotel. The rates offered include options for breakfast at only £1/person/day but...

Nice location within walking distance of Princess Street. Lovely rooms and spotlessly clean really nice beds, bedding and towels. Had a really nice breakfast and the selection of food available was very good. Afternoon tea was a bit disappointing as I wasn't sure what the filling in one of the sandwiches was and the only cake was a slice of...

From the moment we arrive we felt relaxed and at home. The reception staff welcomed us and made everything seem like it was under control. The room was spacious enough for my wife, 4 month old son and i to stay in. We choose this hotel as we called up regarding a query on the sterilising of baby bottles. They...

Nice little Hotel handily located just off the City Centre (about 15min walk). Our room was small but clean, apart from the previous occupant's cakes in a drawer, it also lacked storage so our cases were stored on the floor. After banging into the corner of the bathroom a couple of times whilst needing the loo during the night, I...

Booked this hotel as a treat for family to have a few days away. On the website it looked really nice. Although the beds were comfortable, rooms were decorated nice enough and shower rooms were ok, there were some issues that would make us think again of using this hotel in the future. The room I stayed in was very...

The breakfast was well cooked and good, the afternoon tea was good but why was this stay half the price of any other hotel at the same location,so close to the centre . I will tell you why.

We had a single night in this hotel and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The room was clean and warm with good facilities. The afternoon tea with prosecco was excellent as was the breakfast. The best way into town from the hotel is to either walk (15 mins) or the bus stops at the end of the road and is quite...

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.
