A hotel in a great location, with a pool and good parking and with helpful and friendly staff. The hotel bar had a relaxed atmosphere and provided good food. Rooms were spacious - just what we needed for a family break.

Stayed as a large party recently, on arrival one room hadn't been vacated (which we did think a little unusual - if they wouldn't leave how do you accommodate your guests booked in that day!!) fortunately they had another room and a family of four from our party had to be moved, they did get a business class room but...

Perfectly placed on the Royal mile. Nice breakfast and friendly staff. The bed was nice but the room was nothing special and It was noisy outside, got woken up in the middle of the night. Floor five is in need of renovation, the floor looked really dirty and old.

We had two nights here with our son,his wife and son. The room was a good size and had a decent bathroom. Our's sons room,with a camp bed was a bit crowded-a family room might have been better. Breakfast was OK,nothing special. All staff were polite and attentive. One our second day,we arrived back at the hotel at 4.30 pm... More

Beautiful hotel, fantastic location and designed to fit in with the location (Edinburgh's Royal Mile). Bedroom was large, clean and nicely laid out. Breakfast was delicious and the fitness centre good as well. All the Staff encountered were all very unobtrusive and polite. Couldn't fault anything at all.

Hotel is located in a central location of the city and only a few minutes drive from the main central station. The room I stayed in had a double bed with ensuite. Bed was comfortable and room was nice and clean. Could do with some modernisation in decor of the room but I wasn't bothered with that at all. It... More

We stayed at a different hotel two years ago, and resolved to stay here if we came again because of it's location. It has a lovely old fashioned front to the hotel, which helps a modern hotel marry well into it's historical setting. We stayed in the Business class section of rooms on the 3rd floor, which are very comfortable,... More

No matter which way you turn when exiting this Radisson Hotel, you will find wonderful sights, shopping, food and views. We were there during the Fringe, so the Royal Mile was filled with people, vendors, street entertainers...you name it. When we first arrived, we were greeted by staff in kilts. Can't beat that! Our room was comfortable, the beds were... More
