This is a wonderful place to stay. The staff were all really helpful, the bar was great value, the rooms perfect and the food was fantastic. Kids loved it. It was in a safe and convenient location which worked very well for us.

My daughter has recently moved to Edinburgh and I needed to find an inexpensive place to stay near to her. My budget was limited and therefore I did not expect state of the art decor etc etc for what I could actually afford. With that in mind, The Ellwyn Hotel provided me with a comfortable clean bed in a large... More

we went as a group of ladies to catch up on family. The lunch was nice with huge portions. I had the scampi with salad which had everything one could want in it. Prices very reasonable, and service good. I didn't really see much of the small hotel near Portobello. The small bar was at the frontand the conservatory was... More

We stayed in this hotel for one night and thank goodness it wasn't for any more. The bathroom was very much in need of an update with a grotty stained carpet and mouldy shower. The bedroom again was like something from the seventies and very basic. The bed was the most uncomfortable bed I have ever slept in - very... More

We recently visited Edinburgh for the new year for my daughters birthday. The Ellwyn was a great little hotel with bags of character and situated just a five min bus ride to princess street. Great price for our large family room. The staff made us feel very welcome and the hotel bar was a fantastic taste of local Scotland with... More

The Hotel is a must. I have not been to Scotland if I do not stay in the Ellwyn Hotel. The staff make the property and visit desirable. I would not stay anywhere else in Edinburgh. It is easy to get to and the parking is ample. Right in front of the building. Great neighborhood with shops, cleaners, supermarkets. The... More

We drove past and saw what looked like a cute B&B and decided to stay as we could park right outside. Parking in Edinburgh not easy lol. We couldn't find anyone to book in, finally found a lady who was serving behind the bar, she apologised, short of staff that day. She was very nice and gave us a reasonably... More

We stayed at the Ellwyn for 3 nights, we had booked a double room with a travel cot and on arrival they had given us a family room. It was bright and spacious (could have been a bit more modern with decor etc) but it had everything we could have required. Clean, bright and spacious. They gave us a travel... More

I am a frequent visitor to Edinburgh and I always stay at the Ellwyn Hotel. It is a small cosy hotel, with a relaxed and informal atmosphere. The staff are fantastic - nothing is too much trouble and the home cooked breakfast is always tasty and very generous. I have always been made to feel very welcome by the staff... More
