We stayed here at 21212 in room 21 for one night to celebrate our wedding anniversary and it was simply fantastic. The staff were excellent from the moment we arrived she took time to show us around. This restaurant with rooms is quite quirky and the rooms have a beautiful distinctive style which we loved. Spacious rooms with a sitting... More

We stayed for one night to celebrate my 30th birthday. The location was perfect as being so central we were able to pop into town to see a show before dinner. The room was beautiful and had a lovely view over the city. The service was outstanding. The complimentary champagne and decanter of sloe gin were an unexpected welcome surprise.... More

This is a restaurant with rooms. While we were not particularly impressed with the food which was a matter of taste (see restaurant review), the accomodation was very good. We had a beautiful modern room with an outstanding bathroom. The shower was huge and like showering under a waterfall. The staff was very attentive and freshly made tea and coffee... More

We stayed for the weekend and dined in the restaurant once (that was enough - see my review). I booked this hotel 8 months in advance for the Edinburgh tattoo through Mr and Mrs Smith and paid up front. Now I take responsibility for this but didn't specify a room when booking stupidly assuming that the rooms we on first... More

Dear James C I am sorry that you did not enjoy your trip to 21212 and while we appreciate constructive criticism, I would like to correct some factual inaccuracies from your review. As you state you did not request a specific room whilst others did. All the rooms are generously proportioned and all fall within our 5 star rating. In... More

My wife and I booked in for two night (Sun and Mon) and were amazed at the size and luxury f the room. We dined elsewhere for various reasons but would be keen to sample the restaurant menu when we return, which we most certainly will!

A one night stay in room 21. All in all I would've rated this place excellent, except for two problems (first one minor, second one major). Firstly although when booking I requested a quiet room as we are both light sleepers, our room was at the front of the building facing a noisy road. Fair enough, as these requests are... More

Dear CD555, I'm so sorry to read your review on your recent stay with us here at 21212. We set the bar very high for ourselves and are hugely disappointed if things are not perfect.

Everything about our 1 night stay at the 21212 was lovely. I booked the hotel months before as a surprise for my partner's 30th Birthday.

We were offered champagne on arrival which we accepted even though it was mid afternoon. A good start to our stay in this beautiful hotel. We had room 2 overlooking the garden. Well designed with a huge bathroom containing a walk-in shower (almost a wet room) and a large bath. Having two sinks is definitely a bonus. This hotel is... More
