I stayed in The Bonham on a business trip. It was very atmospheric and traditionally decorated; completely in keeping with the surroundings. Clean with attractive furnishings in my very lovely room. Dinner was good as was breakfast.

Julie Vass was most accommodating while I was planning a large group dinner in the Events Room at The Bonham. She was so timely with all of her email responses to me. This really helped ease my worries since I was sending a group from the US to Scotland and would not be able to travel with the group. She... More

We stayed at the Bonham for a weekend in Edinburgh. The setting is perfect for the city, Drumsheugh Gardens is 5 minutes from the western, quieter end of George Street. The hotel itself is a converted Victorian Mansion overlooking a nice city centre green. We were given room 102 which overlooks the gardens at the front so the view was... More

Having stayed at the Bonham hotel on a number of previous occasions over the pat 6 years, we did not think twice about booking a room when we needed accommodation for an overnight stay in Edinburgh. Despite the £200 price tag, we did not worry about the standard of the hotel due to our previous stays. How wrong could we... More

I was impressed as soon as we stepped in to the place. Beautiful old house, loads of old staircases, beautifully restored. Free upgrade to junior suite due to an error with Expedia. Great customer service. Breakfast lovely too. Lovely views and free wifi a bonus. Easy walking distance to George street and St. Andrews square area, as well as princes... More

Just spent 2 nights at the Bonham in Edinburgh, Dunsheugh Gardens. I had a great room facing the street with a lovely view of the garden and the spire of St. Mary's Cathedral. I had a single room and expected a narrow, small room with a twin bed which is common in the UK. Instead I found I had a... More

We stayed at the Bonham for three nights on their best of Bonham deal as a base to watch the British Open at St Andrews. The staff could not have been more helpful especially Lee on the reception desk. The food and service in the restaurant was excellent. The hotel is conveniently located to walk into the centre of the... More

We had a lovely room at the Bonham! The room was not large, but just perfect for the amount of time we were there! The staff was very friendly and accomodating as we checked in early and they stored our bags all day and had them in our room when we got back! The breakfast was served in a lovely... More

We came here in last in 2000 when it had recently opened as a trendy Boutique Hotel setting standards. Little has changed except new competitors. It is in need of a refurbishment slightly more than the repainting which was going on when we were there. It has new owners early this year and perhaps they will be reviewing its position... More

Staying in West End

Neighborhood Profile
West End
Prevailing winds meant that most cities that grew in industrial Britain had their most desirable neighborhoods 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 theaters 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.
