We have just returned from Edinburgh for a fabulous weekend, watching the BBC concert and Tom Jones, as always the Scottish hospitality was second to none. We had read so many good reviews about this hotel so it was all the more disappointing when we checked in, the hotel itself is obviously every "foodies" paradise, they have concentrated heavily on...

Beautiful quiet hotel close to Princes Street but tucked enough away. The staff at the front desk were very helpful and from around the world. They had excellent restaurant recommendations. The breakfasts are amazing and very hearty.

We stayed here for one night as we were four ladies wedding dress shopping. Quirky little place. Very comfortable and clean. Staff really helpful & friendly. Well priced. Excellent breakfast. Will certainly stay here again.

I've stayed in the Bonham a few times for work, after a colleague recommended it as an alternative to the other hotels we usually use - I never looked back!! For the price you get so much more than elsewhere. From the moment you walk in you feel relaxed, the decor is lovely and the staff polite and efficient. Rooms... More

We booked for the Queens Garden Party in Jul 14. The room was nice, the staff were very efficient and friendly, and the location for the town centre is very good. The room was a little too warm being on the top floor, however this did not detract from the beautiful hotel.

Stayed several times, love the decor of the rooms. Have eaten in the restaurant, food is to die for and unbelievably well priced for the quality! I have also had afternoon tea here, and I can honestly say it is one of the best afternoon tea's I have had (and yes I have had a lot!). The staff always go... More

We are not first timers in Edinburgh so have visited a few hotels nearby but this was the best so far. Great location to walk to Princess St and the Castle. Very quiet area with a couple of busy bars nearby. The room was spacious with a great view (at the rear on floor 2) tastefully decorated with a very... More

The warmth of the elegant Victorian wood panelled dining room of this stylish boutique hotel mysteriously has a smooth, unruffled effect on the staff. Discreet and attentive service with the ability to anticipate your needs is the secret ingredient required to ensure a sublime, early morning dining experience. To poach an egg perfectly requires skill and my full Scottish breakfast... More

The Bonham is a boutique hotel in Scotland with a very contemporary spirit. It occupies a series of Victorian buildings in the West End of Edinburgh, whose soaring natural proportions have allowed us to create a truly dynamic set of rooms and public spaces. At The Bonham hotel in Edinburgh, we have used bold colour, rich texture and contemporary art and photography to build an environment that is fun, upbeat, welcoming and with the unmistakable buzz of being part of a great Scottish city.There are 49 boutique rooms and suites at The Bonham, each individually styled so that, among them, you will almost certainly find the one you have been waiting for. ... more   less
