We stayed in this hotel in February. We were in the club rooms they were immaculate. The staff really made our stay from Jamie on reception who was so friendly to the bar staff and the Manager in the restaurant who couldn't do enough for us. The bar had a great atmosphere and lovely cocktails.

We were warmly greeted by the concierge into this beautiful, Georgian terraced hotel, situated in Charlotte Square. Check-in was slick, with the Receptionist extremely knowledgeable and efficient and friendly. We paid for an upgrade and when I was told our room was in the newer part of the hotel, I was initially disappointed, as I prefer the more traditional style.... More

I stopped here Saturday night for the International Rugby going on and with most of the hotel. The location is great and overall appearance of the hotel is very nice. The rooms were reasonable size and big enough for what we needed. The staff were really friendly and helpful. My only bad point was the breakfast. It was all set... More

My stay at the Roxburghe was one of the best experiences I have had at a hotel in many years. I had booked a twin room for my brother and I for the 6 Nations rugby. We arrived in Edinburgh a few hours before the advertised check-in time but were given access to our room without any fuss and with... More

My husband and I have just spent the weekend at the Roxburghe and fully enjoyed our visit. Check in was very good and we were able to access our room early which we were not expecting to. Our room was beautiful, spacious, warm and the bathroom fully equiped. Only issue was noise at night on George Street, but this was... More

Have returned from a Saturday evening stay at this hotel. Initially booked through lastmin.com under the secret hotel for nearly £120 so about a £40-50 saving. Once I received details of the hotel, I looked it up and was pleased it was a four star with leisure facilities. The pictures on the website looked lovely too. I noted a few... More

the location is superb its a ten minute walk from the station or around £6 in a cab. A few minutes from a bus stop and a fantastic location for the castle and surrounding area. Our room was huge and very comfortable it was at the back of the hotel so we had no view but it very quite. The... More

we have several times booked for afternoon tea at this hotel and not been disappointed, until last week. The place was busy but something that a place of this size should be able to cope with.

I have stayed nationally and internationally and this hotel has been by far the finest hotel I've stayed at for more than one reason. The hospitality is simply the best I've ever have experienced.
