I booked into the cheapest room in the hotel, as I was in Edinburgh for training and I work for a charity. I arrived late but soon wished I'd arrived earlier... They were quiet that night so had upgraded me from the smallest room in the hotel, to the most amazing suite!! I couldn't believe it! The room was huge,... More

We booked in here for a two night stay recently, upon first inspection the hotel looked very welcoming, extremely clean and fresh. The booking in process was very easy & staff very friendly and helpful. We where allocated a room downstairs in what I say was the old basement. The room was clean, bright, basic but if your using the... More

Thanks to Colin for arranging our terrific theatre package to see Wicked (which is amazingly good value) once again the theatre seats were great,... More

Where can I start? I booked the theatre package through Colin, the events manager for a few of us back in February to stay and see Wicked at the edinburgh playhouse, as the months went on more people wanted to tag along, I called Colin whom not only arranged the rooms but also the theatre tickets direct from the theatre...

We were lucky enough to stay at The Place for 2 nights in November. Arrival at the hotel could not be easier with the tram stopping directly outside. We were greeted warmly on arrival at reception and they were more than happy to check if our room was ready before check in time, which luckily it was. We were not... More

This is a lovely friendly hotel, the staff are very friendly and helpful. Rooms are nice, not huge but big enough. We ate one night and enjoyed it. Menu not large but what we had was lovely. Good breakfast also . The only downside I would say are the stairs, there is no lift so if you can't do stairs... More

We didn't chose to stay here - it was because my husband had meetings and the hotel had been selected. As I was on maternity leave, I joined him with our 5 month old daughter and we extended our stay. We arranged with the hotel for a cot to be available in our room and it was ready and waiting...
