    Stayed here for 4nights and were apparently in the superior double room. The room itself was clean but the bed was two single mattresses pushed together so not to comfy. The toilet also randomly flushed itself every so often so if you're a lite sleeper this is no good. Not really value for money either

    We had a lovely stay at the Salisbury Hotel. Clean, up-to-date room with everything we needed and lovely little en suite shower room. Very comfortable bed. Staff were lovely and friendly and made us feel most welcome. Super continental breakfast, no complaints at all.

    Brilliant staff and comfortable clean room. Had room with garden view and it was nice and quiet. Breakfast staff in the morning were most helpful and the choice of breakfast was very good. Note you pay extra for a cooked breakfast. Would really recommend the Café Cassis in the basement of the hotel. Again wonderful staff and superb meals cooked... More

    This is a lovely hotel! The location is perfect, we were in Edinburgh for the weekend for the theatre. The hotel is close enough to the centre without the busyness & noise. The bus stop is less than a minutes walk away with very regular busses to and from the centre. All the staff were very friendly & helpful. Our... More

    We chose this hotel as it was near Queens Hall and had parking. Also a short walk into the city with many interesting shops, pubs and restaurants on the way. The room was clean and bed comfy. Opted for a superior room but was a bit disappointed as quite small and could hear music from bistro in basement. We did... More

    Easily accessible from the airport, we got the airlink bus £4 each and then a cab from the city centre for £5 as we were not sure where we were going. On arrival the staff were friendly and the hotel is clean and modern. The bus ride to the city centre is about 10 mins and costs £1 and buses... More

    It was a fantastic hotel with brilliant staff or who were really helpfull and friendly as they let us leave our bags after checkout as we were not travelling back until late evening.

    We received a warm welcome. Stayed in The Salisbury room, which was wonderful. Super King four poster in a large room with georgian features. We were able to park in front of the hotel. A short walk to bus stop where we caught a bus to Princes Street. Approximately 30 mins walk back. Would recommend this hotel without hesitation.

    The hotel was in a great location with bars, shops and restaurants just a short walk away. Rooms are decorated to a good standard and although they are small and compact they have a sense of grandness. Staff at the hotel were great, extremely friendly and always willing to help/advise. Breakfasts was a wide variety of continental and traditional Scottish... More
