We came for the Edinburgh Festival (mostly for the music and dance show). The suite was beautiful, the style and decor intriguing. The location isn't as good, but bottom line its definitely worth it and we will come back.

I spend a lot of my life in hotels and will certainly not be staying at the Bonham again. No real problem with my basement room (other than the beastly smell in the corridor outside which was successfully disguised when I complained but not eliminated!). My beef is with staffing levels and training. When I returned to the hotel at... More

Only one night at our favourite hotel in the world ,in our favourite city in the world, but a delightful break in a v stressful period for our family with our little Edinburgh grandson awaiting a stem cell transplant: batteries recharged to face next stage! Great view, lovely breakfast, quiet but handy location- thank you. We'll celebrate with you when... More

We stayed here with our Rick Steves tour last month and tacked on extra days here at the beginning and the end of our trip as well. The location was good: in a quiet neighborhood still convenient to the main sights. We upgraded our room to a junior suite (I think that's what it was called) as there were 3... More

Spent almost a week there recently; while I would have preferred something closer to the old city, it is a pleasant 10-15 minute walk with some nice restaurants along the way. The hotel makes up for this distance; we had a lovely, spacious room with a beautiful view; the service is impeccable and super friendly and the breakfasts each morning... More

We stayed 2 nights and found the service friendly and helpful. Our room was very comfortable with a super bathroom. I was initially concerned that it wasn't central but it's an easy 5 minute walk into the centre of the city. The breakfast was great. We didn't have dinner so can't comment on the restaurant. The only negative thing about... More

We had an Itison voucher for a chateaubriand and bottle of wine between 2. It would be hard to find fault with this, both for value and quality. Given that Edinburgh was in full Festival frenzy, the restaurant at the Bonham was a haven of peace and excellent service. The steak was superb and the wine better than average. We've... More

Great historic town house in EDI, fully modernise, with huge rooms and good restaurant. Have been using the Bonham for a few months, when available. It has become my preferred hotel for EDI business trip. Quiet, comfortable, very spacious. Can't go wrong.

Not my regular hotel in Edinburgh where I stay a lot as its a fair hike into the city. The hotel is a mix of new and old rooms in a converted building on the Leith basin. The staff were exceptionally helpful in accommodating me in swapping rooms (ask for one on the estuary side if you are a light... More

We stayed over new year with a package that included dinner and a ticket to the street party. The hotel and the room was great,very quiet with spotless rooms. The food was good too, but some of the staff were new to the job and it may have made our stay perfect once they were up to speed.its not cheap... 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
