Visited the restaurant this evening with my husband and had a lovely meal served by helpful and attentive staff. The restaurant offers a relaxing atmosphere - just right for an end of week meal! Give it a try, I'm sure you'll agree!

Myself and my girlfriend arrived for a weekend away in Edinburgh and we stayed at the Ballantrae. We arrived on the Saturday morning where we were told on site parking was available, however, there was very little and we had to park next door. Unsure, if this would have been possible if it was a week day and the business... More

The hotel is situated only 10 minutes from the city centre and many of the sights of Edinburgh are reachable on foot. The booking office for day trips is a mere 5 minutes away and the tram to the airport stops at the end of the road. The rooms are very spacious, with excellent bathroom facilities. We were upgraded to... More

I enjoyed my stay in this boutique hotel, but also my first visit to this conveniently located hotel. The building itself is a listed building which is interesting. Suitable to anyone needing to get started with visiting Edinburgh. The receptionists provided me with very good customer service, especially assisting with my heavy luggage to take upstairs, since there are no... More

Considerably longer walking back up! First impression from outside hotel was very nice. Once inside and booked in we where shown our room which hubby had surprised me by upgrading to... More

I booked the hotel last minute, and got a bargain price. The location is great; just over 10 minutes walk from Waverley station. I arrived early, and the staff were really helpful, letting me leave my bag until I came back to check in later. When I came to check in, my bag had been moved to my room for... More

Where to start... firstly the hotel is nothing like what is shown on the photographs, I am assuming that the room and bathroom shown on website are of the sole deluxe room in the hotel? The standard rooms are shabby, dark, with tired decor and mismatched broken furniture with threadbare carpet covering the broken or missing floorboards. The general quality... More

We booked in for an overnight stay in an executive suite and were delighted to have been upgraded to the honeymoon suite when we arrived. The receptionist couldn't have been more helpful :) our room was massive, huge bathroom with a lovely deep bath. It's so close to everything you need and after a lovely night out we had a... More

Some of the communal areas look a bit tired but the bed was comfortable & the room was clean. Staff were friendly & helpful. Breakfast buffet was adequate. Good location, near all the attractions but nice quiet location.
