I hate complaining but on this occasion it's required. I took the other reviews with a pinch of salt but wish I hadn't. This hotel is very old and worn, in itself shouldn't be a problem but it's dirty. You can't clean properly when wall paper is peeling off the wall and the grout is missing around the bath. The...

A friend of mine stayed here and there was an issue with his room. When he approached the landlady and the receptionist it seemed as though they wanted to make it his fault. Regardless of the price, don't stay here. Pay that little extra and be safe.

This place has no hot water but is about a 15 min walk from the city centre. This is probably not one for a relaxing holiday but 100 squid for three nights and two people is cheap as chips hahaja. I'm boiling the kettle to have a bath right now

I genuinely don't know where to start. Hands down the worst hotel I've ever been to. Spanish girl on reception was nice but my god, the large lady was on the most rude people I've ever met, almost confrontational. The rooms..... let's start with the bed, christ it was like an Olympic challenge just to stay in it.... I fell...

This was very cheap for the location so I was not expecting the actual Ritz. There is a very good reason that it is cheap, but I have no complaints. If you are expecting anything other than dated and tired, then more fool you. I'd stay again, it serves its purpose has friendly staff

We booked this hotel on the internet for 2 nights at only £45 a night. The hotel was exactly what I expected, clean but dated, the rooms had everything you could need the bar only sold bottles and cans at Edinburgh prices, £5 for bottle of Magners. The hotel offered a basic breakfast of cereal juice etc which they didn't...

Have stayed in this hotel three times between 2012-2016, its the only place i stay when in Edinburgh. Central location, great staff, cool little bar, and nice rooms. It is a botique old style hotel, so not the most modern looking, but that just adds to the charm. its a great place to stay for the price.

We booked this restaurant for our team Christmas dinner. We pre ordered our food from the Christmas menu. The choice was really good. The food was good quality and it was very reasonably priced. Keep it in mind if you are in the gyle shopping nicer than the food court. It also has a pool table and suitable for coffee...

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.

After a spell housing the Scottish Coal Board the building was converted into a boutique Hotel 50 years ago.Every effort has been made to retain the original features, including the beautiful cornices, rose crowns and staircases, whilst simultaneously providing guests with all necessary mod-cons. ... more   less
