We were an Anglo-French couple on a trip around the UK, we booked online a double room for a 2 night stay and got instead an box room with just enough space to squeeze in a small double bed. This bore no resemblance to the rooms advertised on the Best Western Cumberland web site – so be warned. In the...

The hotel is two lovely old Victorian houses linked together. It is in a good part of town about 10 minutes walk from Haymarket station. Another 10 minutes gets you to Princes Street. In the other direction 10 minutes gets your to Murrayfield Stadium. Bus service is also good if you don't want to walk. We had our rental car...

The room was freezing. We complained about it in the morning and were told that if we had a problem through the night we should have got up in the middle of the night and come and told someone, the woman was very unapologetic. I expect that if i want to turn the radiator on then it will work, not...

Not bad at all. July, $158 US dollars. Close to City center - the Royal mile, Castle, 10-12 minute walk. (Parking around that main attraction is quite expensive - 17 pounds for 4-hour stay, i suggest walking if you can :) However, if you pay that fee - it hopefully goes to a good use, the city needs it) Back...

Although the decor needed updated, which I was informed was in hand, the place was spotless. The service we received was excellent and nothing was too much trouble for the staff. The traditional English breakfast was generous and cooked perfectly to order. I would definitely return to this hotel.

We requested a quiet room, bath preferred and we" got that. Room comfortable, no dined on the two night we stayed, at the "Skerries, next door. First night excellent but pricey, second night not so good but still pricey, We thought £4.50 for a bottle of sparkling water a bit high!

Thank Dargie

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.
