This is a lovely hotel hidden away on a side street about a 20-25 min walk from the Royal Mile. It's perfect for travellers who want a good nights sleep and don't mind walking or taking the bus to local attractions. The room itself was quite big for a single and very clean. I LOVED the Tunnocks tea cake left... More

On a weekend away for my partners birthday, Edinburgh as we've never been seemed nice enough. We booked for the zoo as well so were looking for a nice hotel for a few nights. We weren't disappointed! Even though our sat nav had trouble finding it, we checked in and were shown to a cute basement room which I loved!... More

We wanted an overnight stay in Edinburgh during a trip to the UK. We looked online and found this lovely hotel. We were looking for a hotel with a shortish walk to the city centre(30mins top) with onsite parking for our hire car. The Salisbury hotel had all that and a great room with a view over the houses to... More

It was a great location, close to the University of Edinburgh and hiking at Arthur's seat. We had great service. Charming hostess in the cafe and friendly helpful staff. Not to far for walking into town and the Royal Mile.

Great little hotel! Lots of stairs. I would stay here again. I was staying for work so didn’t get chance to eat in the hotel. However my room was lovely. Clear and tidy with good space. Bathroom was clean and cleaned. I loved that in the bathroom they had given me cotton pads and buds lovely little touch! Good location... More

We stayed here for two nights and were given a warm welcome. Although our room was small (as was the bathroom), we were very comfortable. Only family rooms appear to have a minibar and one would have been welcome to keep drinks cold. The included breakfast is continental although you can order a cooked breakfast for a payment and the... More
