Great team of friendly staff, nothing too much trouble and all with good humour, not got a 5 as the room was noisy, part location (my fault) and part the rickety windows that were part open due to the listed status

Recently stayed at the inn on the mile and was blown away by the luxury rooms in a city centre location. The staff were more than hospitable and even let us leave our luggage there all day so we could continue sight seeing before our evening flight.

This Inn is located directly in the center of everything you need when visiting Edinburgh. Close to the train station, easy access to the tourist sites up and down the Mile, as well as a quick walk over to New Town and other parts of Old Town. Staff were fantastic, helpful, and friendly when eating or drinking in the pub.... More

This is an amazing location for touring Edinburgh, especially if you are wanting to walk the city. It's only a few minutes from shopping, restaurants, and best of all, the castle! We had a room on the top floor with a wonderful view of the clock tower next door. There are a lot of steps, so be prepared and travel... More

This hotel was perfectly located in the center of the city. It is an old bank converted into a very contemporary hotel. It is situated above a restaurant/bar. We were in room 2, which had perfect views of the city from 2 sides. The room was gorgeous- all white. We were surprised by the chocolate covered strawberries waiting for us.... More

I stayed here for a week in September while on a business trip. Must say I was a bit apprehensive after reading some of the reviews on Tripadvisor about the noise etc. Everything turned out well and I had one of the best experiences in all my (many) travels. My room was one floor above the pub which I read... More

Delayed review as was earlier in the year that I stayed here with my partner. Was last minute booking so didn't know what to expect with a room above a busy pub but was pleasantly surprised. Couldn't hear one bit of noise from pub below or street in the room. Bed was huge and comfortable, bathroom and bedroom but spotlessly... More

We stayed in the Inn on the Mile at the end of September, and I found the room one of the best rooms I've stayed in in terms of presentation.

what a great small hotel. Right on the Royal Mile - so convienent for everywhere - very comfortable rooms (although you have to like going up stairs!) and a friendly bar. Perfect for exploring the city of Edinburgh. oWould be great for Edinburgh during the fringe.

Do you like sleep? The pub below the hotel is very loud until 2AM. This is probably to be expected bc we did choose a hotel located above a pub. Plus it is not bad if you get to sleep in, right? Well don't count on sleeping in because starting at 9:30 AM the cleaning lady will be slamming doors.... More
