Magda, and Sheila Receptionists were top class. A friendly smile to greet you and advise on where to eat for a change from the MP's Bistro within the hotel also very good. Hop on hop off busses a must. Location if this hotel was excellent and a fair price paid. Would definitely stay here again.

I stayed here for 2 nights whilst in Edinburgh on business and enjoyed my stay here. The hotel has a lovely feel to it, including the winding staircase to get to my room, and is within a few minutes walk to all of the attractions in the city centre. The room was of a good size and immaculately clean. All... More

We spent 3 nights at the Parliament House in Rm 101, a triple room on the lower level. It was very comfortable for three of us, and we all slept well! The room was very clean and neat, but we were a little put off by the handicap-style bathroom. Although it was big, there was no tub; only a shower... More

This is the second time we have stayed at this hotel, it is ideally located for the centre of Edinburgh. It's a mixture of traditional and contemporary. Rooms are well proportioned and so is the en-suite. The hotel was very clean and tidy. All the staff we encountered were fantastic. They were warm and friendly as well as polite and... More

My wife and I spent a weekend here recently and I'll start by saying it deserves 3.5 stars but it's not possible to rate by halves. The staff are courteous and efficient and the location is excellent, which I suppose is why it costs £190 for a Saturday night. The problem is, there are a couple of areas that need... More

Checked into the well situated and quiet Parliament House in July after fleeing the austere Motel One. What a relief to enter their old-world-charm lobby and be greeted by experienced and gracious front desk personnel. They let us put our suitcase in their storage while we went to Inverness on an overnight trip and then checked in the following day.... More

We booked for an overnight with friends and we were not disappointed it was an ideal place to stay, really central to all Edinburgh's main attractions. Room was clean, the beds were really comfy and we had a great nights sleep. Staff were helpful and friendly. Would highly recommend.

The hotel is ideally situated on a quiet street about 10 mins walk from Waverley Station. Also only 15 minute walk to The Royal Mile where there are numerous bars.,, oh and Edinburgh Castle at one end and Holyrood Palace at the other. Princes St and Park are also reached in 10mins. We had a massive room with amazing views... More

We enjoyed a late last minute stop to conclude the Edinburgh section of our holiday. The reviews seemed very mixed but bottom line is we had to catch a train from Waverley Stn in the morning and at £89 it was ideally situated just off the main drag up a short steep pathway. Talking metres here not miles as indicated... More
