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

Staff were lovely and helpful. The room was spacious, clean and had a wardrobe, tv and fridge as well as ensuite with toiletries provided. All was clean and tidy, and housekeeping kept it that way daily. It is located just under Clifton Hill and pretty easy to get to as it's not far from buses or the main train station.... More

I stayed here for two nights in a twin room. I say a twin room but the beds were so close we were practically sharing. However, as we were good friends, that didn't bother me too much. The beds were very soft, which meant that I didn't sleep very well, but that is a personal thing - I prefer harder... More

Visitors seeking traditional Scotland will love the look of this property. The lobby features a high ceiling, cosy armchairs and a real fire. Just the spot to curl up on a winter's night with a "wee dram". In contrast, our room was fresh and modern. There was plenty of space and the bed was very comfortable. My only criticism would...

The hotel is in a great location if not on one of the steepest hills in Edinburgh, the staff are excellent on check in and check out. We were in the old section of the hotel which was an adventure getting to the room but as the preservation rules protecting the building I am sure stops putting doorways through its... More

We stayed in this hotel for one night in late June 2014. The location is not far from the train station but much quieter then those just by the station. The room was very nice and clean. We would join a two-day tour to highland next day, so we asked the front desk if we could leave our luggage in... More
