I stayed at the Roxburghe Crown Plaza for 2 days prior to a bus tour starting. I was with my Dad and sister and had the most enjoyable stay! Check in was a breeze and the staff very helpful and pleasant. Our rooms were clean and although the single room was a little on the small side, it was all... More

I know that the concept of value will differ from person yo person and possibly from time to time. We spent an average of £300 per night here and it just didn't feel like value for money. This is an old, well established hotel in an excellent position close to Princes Street. The staff were efficient, professional and friendly -... More

Stayed here during the Edinburgh Fringe, great location, great staff and a fantastic hotel. The fire alarm went off during our stay and even that was handled in a prompt professional manner. I highly recommend this hotel.

Stayed here for the book/fringe festival. The location of the hotel is one of the best, directly on George street and across the street from the book festival. We checked in and were quickly helped out by the concierge, who was great. The room was lovely and it's one of the most comfy night's sleep we've had in a while... More

I stayed here overnight with my son when we came up for the Edinburgh Festival. Wonderfully efficient and helpful staff, reasonable sized room overlooking the courtyard, lovely bathroom, delicious breakfast. The Roxburghe's location on Charlotte Square makes it ideal for the Book Festival and window shopping for clothes on George Street, as well as being an easy walk from Prince's... More

Wanted to rate as excellent but had to rate as very good in all honesty. Two nights here as part of a tour and overall not bad. Staff were helpful (although flustered on arrival as there had been a mix-up with my room). Breakfast was marvelous. Dinner slightly less so but quite good. Location could not be better. However, this... More

We stayed for five nights at this hotel and we wouldn't change a thing. All the staff were genuinely friendly, helpful and accommodating, the room was well-appointed and very comfortable, the breakfast was impressive....all together it was a very pleasant experience. We would certainly stay again when we return to Edinburgh.

Quick stay this week - excellent time and really helpful staff, especially Craig the Concierge. Recommend it for location, free wifi, food, staff and cleanliness. Great for the Festival - very central!

Having visited Edinburgh a few times over the years I've been able to try out a few of the big chain hotels, and this trip was the first time we had stayed here. Overall, the building is well hidden away due to the lack of in your face signage, I guess keeping in line with the architecture of the local... More
