We were at the Crowne Plaza for the Bay City Rollers' Fan Fest 2014 on Sunday, 20 July 2014. We did not have a room but we experienced the surroundings and ambiance of this fine hotel. The buffet served at our event was moorish and everything a class act. The only reason I did not give it 5 stars is... More

The service was excellent. However, there is only so much service for a hotel with shockingly small rooms and (perhaps) the thinnest walls of any place I have stayed. You can literally hear every word in the adjacent rooms. Upon arrival the room was not cleaned, but that can happen. The location is excellent. It is just small and noisy.

This is a very smart hotel in the centre of Edinburgh. The rooms are beautiful. The location fantastic - very close to Princess Street and the castle. We walked up from Waverley station very easily. The pool and steam room made for a good cool down after a good shop on Princess Street. The club lounge is a lovely touch.... More

We stayed at this hotel earlier this week (Family of 4). I had chosen this hotel because of the swimming pool - the children used it every day. The rooms were fine, breakfast was very good, all of the staff exceptionally friendly and helpful. All in all a great stay and we would definately stay here Again. If I was... More

This is a great hotel with great people, great location, and all one could ask. About two blocks from Princes Street and the gardens between the Old City and the New City. Great public areas for a cup of coffee or tea and to read a local paper. Pubs on Rose Street just a stroll away.

The hotel is on Charlotte Square and is a 10-15 minute walk from Waverley Station or a £4 cab ride. The hotel used to be owned by MacDonald, but IHG have scooped it up. The reception is large and airy with lots of welcomes from the doorman to the front desk. I had to wait several minutes for the front... More

The Roxburghe is a fantastic hotel in an excellent location. The rooms are clean, air conditioned, well appointed and comfortable. The bathrooms are spacious and nicely decorated. The staff is outstanding - eager to serve and very helpful. It's easy to reach off the tram from the airport and within easy walking distance of the castle and the Royal Mile.... More

The Roxburghe is in the centre of town, with Rose Street, full and pubs and restaurants at your doorstep. The rooms are quite large and comfortable. An added touch is a sleeping tissue, given to you on the first nights stay, infused with oils to help induce a good sleep, which actually works. Breakfast range is good and includes black... More
