Lovely hotel with very approachable and personable staff. Luxurious enough to make you feel like you're having a real holiday treat without being over the top. The beds are large and comfortable, and the room we were in had stunning views across the Firth of Forth. Immaculately clean, the rooms also have everything you may possibly need and more besides,...

Three couples stayed at the Royal Scots Club on June 21-22, and we were all pleased with the accommodations & location. Two ground floor double rooms were spacious with large bathrooms; the third room was on the second floor and had a great view of the Firth of Forth, but its size made it less desirable. Breakfast was expensive but... More

What a great place! Historical itself and walking distance to Old and New Town attractions. The room was fresh and very clean as well as quiet. The front desk staff, especially Paul, helped us find tickets and transportation. The breakfasts were very good, and the bar staff very friendly and personable. The price is great for such a good location.... More

She was very efficient in booking us in and directing us to our room (num 20) which was very spacious as there was 2 adults and three children. We were there for a 1Direction concert at Murrayfield She booked us a... More

Everyone was informative and professional. The room we were allocated had a great view towards the forth of firth. Our room only had a shower room en suite - so specify a bath if this is an issue for you. However, this was perfect for us. The location of the room was quiet and the bed was very comfortable. There... More

The value is excellent. We booked our room on hotels tonight and paid $125 for a family room. We liked it so much we stayed the... More
