My husband and myself couldn't have picked a better hotel for our long weekend in Edinburgh , we were staying in the Carlton room and it very clean and tastefully decorated with a very comfortable bed. The continental breakfast was very nice and the staff were very attentive. We had a meal in the cafe cassis which is attached to... More

Booked in for an overnight stop as a treat away from the kids. First impressions not great, should have realised that customer care not top priority as I was lead down to the room, struggling with our bags and no offer of help from the porter/ receptionist. No mention of requests for breakfast, newspapers or times for next morning. Only... More

With response to your very negative and untrue review of our hotel I would like to put across the facts surrounding the situation. We always ask if guests would like any help with their luggage. I have checked with the person who was working on reception at the time of arrival, who assures me that help was offered but refused.... More

We have just returned from a four night stay in Edinburgh for the Fringe Festival staying at the Salisbury Hotel and cannot speak highly enough of our stay. The room (Pleasance) was extremely comfortable and quiet and provided everything you could need during a short stay. It provided an extremely comfortable bed, coffee & tea making facilities with biscuits and... More

Very average. Not so close to the the royal mile, not bad but not good. Room was very small, bathroom very very small and somehow shabby (even if new!) Breakfast very average as well. Quite below all breakfasts we have had in Scotland.

Good Morning, In response to the very negative review of our hotel i would like to point out a few things. When you booked your room through 1 of our partner sites, the room is accurately described with room sizes given, it clearly states that our standard doubles are small and compact. we do not hide this from our guests....

We stayed at the Salisbury for 2 nights in August. The hotel is a little bit out of the centre but it was close enough to walk into Edinburgh. A bus station is just a few meter away from the hotel.

We stayed at the Salisbury for 2 nights in June. The hotel is located a little out of the centre but close enough to walk into Edinburgh without too much difficulty.

this was one of the best hotels I have stayed in. The building was elegant, the bedroom and bathroom huge and well appointed. It overlooked a beautiful garden. Every detail had been considered and the staff were friendly and helpful. Everything was on a personal scale. No hotel chain thank goodness!

Stayed for 3 nights in August. A lovely old typical stone Edinburgh property with modern décor - and free car parking! For a city hotel our room overlooking the garden was very quiet. Excellent position for visiting events in town. Good choice of breakfast with pleasant friendly staff. We did not try the restaurant as we were attending a wedding... More

Visited the Salisbury during the Fringe. 2km away from the old city Centre, which is 15 min by foot or 4 min by bus (lots of them!). On a quiet back road, it's ideally located close to all venues but away from the noise. Rooms show recent redecoration, and are kept clean. Very helpful front desk staff. Will go back!

Clean and looking as if recently remodeled, we very much enjoyed our stay. Our room overlooked the garden and was very quiet except during the distant tattoo fireworks, which we assume no one in town can ignore. Salisbury is a side street and likely rooms on that side are quiet as well. The included breakfast was high end continental and... More
