I went with some friends for a dinner out and I loved it. The food was tasty and the terrace outside is wonderful. I ordered a glass of red wine which was pretty good too. The manager of the bar/hotel came outside to check and ask if everything was ok; very nice gesture. I recommend the nachos!!!

I was visiting Edinburgh for my son's PhD graduation and this hotel couldn't have been in a better position as it was near where my son lived but also within walking distance to the University through the "Meadows". The staff were very friendly & polite & nothing too much trouble. The rooms were spotless & very well decorated & had... More

We are a family of 4 (2 teenagers). Stayed 1 night. Room was just above pub but it was not noisy. Very nice family room, big, high ceilings, clean, bay window with sofa. The only issue was bad TV reception during world cup. Could not watch or listen to TV. We did not ask why...as were too tired. Parking is... More

Good evening, Thank you for taking the time to write a review. It will be small consolation but had you asked for assistance still would not have found a solution on this evening as the TV issue required a professional engineer to access our rooftop - it was remedied as quickly as possible and I hope it did not hamper...

I haven’t written my review yet, even if I visited this hotel in September last year, as I still wasn’t sure how to evaluate and I wanted to be fair. We visited as a group of 10 friends for 4 nights and the first impression was great, we mostly liked our rooms (even if there was a huge difference in... More

The saying ... Don't judge a book by its cover definitely applies to this hotel. On arrival with my two children I wasn't certain what to expect. I can honestly say that I was pleasantly surprised.

Stayed here with my partner for one night on Saturday 31st May. The room was clean, staff were very friendly and funny. We had dinner at night and it was very nice and the drinks were not the most expensive I have ever had. Bed was comfy enough, good TV channels. No problems whatsoever. Would visit again.

I hadn't stayed here for over 10 years and we were pleasantly surprised at how nice the Links was this time. It was always nice but I have to say that both Bowral generally and Links House were better than ever. The rooms aren't opulent, rather quaint and homely in the nicest way. Our room wasn't large but it was... More

Staying in the area for work week this was ideal. No parking.... But that was not an issue for us. Spacious room ver clean and comfortable. Really quiet... No traffic noise. Bar food was good, with varied choice. Would return.
