I stayed at the Place in Edinburgh last week and found the location ideal and the hotel very clean. The staff was very helpful and kind. Breakfast was filling and offered many selections. I would highly recommend.

I stayed at this hotel for my recent Christmas night out when I attended the Edinburgh playhouse. My room was extremely spacious, with large comfortable beds and well presented bathroom facilities. I had a dinner within my booking and the food was delicious. A modern twist on festive food including cauliflower soup, duck breast and fabulous sticky toffee pudding. Breakfast... More

We stayed for 2 nights in October, 2011, whilst the renovations were occurring, and found no problems. Was a bit tricky finding the place, due to lack of signage, but once we did, everything was fine. Due to the renovations, reception was run out of one of the rooms, but we had no problems with this. As our room was... More

This b&b has received mixed reviews and I suspect your experience will depend greatly on your expectations and how much you pay for a room. Not booking particularly far in advance, I got my single room for £37, without a bathroom and excluding breakfast. It was clean and as comfortable as I'd expect at that price and the service was...

My partner and I stayed here for New Year and the accomodation and service were excellent. The staff could not have been more helpful, the room was fantastic and the Hotel bar was well stocked and reasonably priced. The Hotel was close to the main areas and within easy walking distance of everything. Our room was at the top of... More

I stayed in York Place B&B 2010 and was very pleased. So i returned in September 2011 and it was really disappointing. The whole B&B was under a new management who is turning it into a hotel. So i stayed more or less on a contrustion site. The once beautiful breakfast room was gone, breakfast was in a hotel on... More

I stayed here last week and here is my experience. Staff were really friendly, bed was comfy and shower was powerful.... so far so good right? Here are the negatives, initially it was small things like the sign on the front door is a A4 piece of paper - which makes the place look like a dive from the outside,... More

Room 5 was given- review given by WickmanUK in Aug/TonyT in July/Robin0 in June says it all! I threatened to report them to environmental health because of the state of Room 5. The reception did move us to a cleaner... More
