I was a bit hesitant to book this one earlier. but the pictures looked good and someone recommended it to me too, so I was a bit ok. Once I reached, this looked like a old heritage building just at entrance of a small street. The entrance is small but decent. Just what should be the minimum. the hotel does... More

After reading the conversation between the duty manager and you I can only say, that she explained you our cancellation policy and the reasons why we can't offer you a refund for last minute cancellations in a polite manner. She has the authority to act upon cancellations as it is expected from her, following the guidelines we use with every... More

First, the good: this hotel has everything you *need* from a hotel: you get a bed, there's a roof and the location, right next to York Place, is great. Now: onto absolutely everything else.

Plentiful continental breakfast with attentive staff. Housekeeping staff do a great job as the room always looked lovely and tidy on our return. Clean towels each day. Shampoo & shower... More

The room was really cold, the heating in our room was not working and when we asked for and extra duvet they said NO. The hotel has no lift, and the stairs are really dangerous, especially if you are with big luggage. The room was cosy but really small for 2 people, you almost can not move. The position of... More

For readers of this rev, we are an Aussie dad and son sightseeing in Edinburgh. The Regent House Hotel had pros and cons for us: PROS Located 10 min walk to central Edinburgh and 30 min walk to most city attractions. Yet the hotel is in a quiet street and our room on the top floor (room 24) was very... More
