Stayed at the Bonham last week for a short break. From start to finish I have nothing but praise for the quality of service, the staff and the food. Check in was excellent and in fact we were able to access our room earlier than expected. Room was lovely, as was the bottle of bubbles and sweets. Dinner in the... More

Stayed at Bonham for short break during Edinburgh Christmas Festival. As usual service was excellent. Friendly reception and made to feel very welcome. Rooms good size with White Company toiletries. Location - easy to get to Haymarket train station in approx 10mins walk or Waverly train station in approx 20mins walk. Taxi to either station under £10. Good shortcut to... More

We stayed here for 3 nights and the hotel is really nice. The staff are all very welcoming and friendly and the breakfast was ace! The full Scottish breakfast was very nice. I highly recommend The Bonham, you won't be disappointed. Plus it was really close to the city centre!

Having stayed with this small chain (Townhouse) and specifically the Bohnam previously on numerous occasions. We were disappointed that the service experience, room, breakfast and hotel itself have deteriorated to a lesser standard. The check in was poor and we felt like an inconvenience rather than a paying guest! (We actually booked direct too!). The room itself had a good... More

New favourite hotel in my old favourite city. Stayed in lots over the years, but this ranks as the best! Breakfast is a treat, our room was fab and the staff ab fab. Really central with only 10 mins walk to Princes Street or George street.

Decided to re-visit The Bonham for a sleepover in Edinburgh as we were going to see Billy Connolly at the Usher Hall. Last time a few years ago it was ok but this time it was SAD. Whoever owns it has neglected it and needs to get the painters and decorators in! Our deal was a dinner bed and breakfast... More

We had a couple of nights at the Bonham. Room was comfortable, quiet and clean, bed enormous. Location great just a few minutes off the west end of Prices Street. Plenty of local small bars and good eateries. Breakfast quality and choice was good. Staff were most helpful and friendly. We will definitely stay again.

I stayed at the Bonham for 2 nights whilst attending a convention. Having stayed previously I am a big fan but have to say I feel a little disappointed on this occasion. I had a standard room(previously I have had petite) the decor was a bit bland and my bathroom was due a make over (peeling paint around the window... More

An excellent Hotel conveniently situated for central Edinburgh, every thing in easy walking distance. My room was on the third floor at the rear and offered an amazing view of North Edinburgh across the Firth of Forth to Fife.

Just returned from another lovely night's stay at The Bonham on the 'Best of Bonham' offer which includes prosecco and sweets in your room. What a lovely atmosphere this townhouse hotel has - right in the centre of the city but oh so peaceful! Quiet efficient staff, comfortable spacious rooms (ours had a fantastic view over the city to the... More
