Came for overnight stay. Room very nice and comfortable. Staff very attentive. Great surroundings. Had a great three course meal and lovely breakfast which was included in the deal. Only downside was no parking facilities.

We took advantage of an Itison promotion and weren't disappointed. We arrived slightly earlier than the designated check in time and, although our room wasn't quite ready, the staff were more than happy to store our luggage whilst we went to explore Edinburgh. Check in was warm and friendly and the room was comfortable, well furnished and provided a good... More

Stayed here on a voucher deal which was fantastic value. Our room was on the top floor which did mean quite a lot of stairs to climb, but we were offered help with our luggage. The room was large and very well equipped and very clean and comfortable. Dinner was really nice although the main course was quite small and... More

Stayed here on a voucher deal, 3 course dinner bed and breakfast and a glass of proseco for only £99.00. This was a brilliant deal and we could not fault it especially for a hotel so near the city center. We had a lovely ground floor room with a really confortable bed which had very nice bed linen on it,... More

Rooms were too hot, extremely small and very noisy, no elevator, bad and unhelpful service, website photos are misleading. Too bad because it has the potential to become a lovely city boutique hotel. Not bad for just a cockatil though but that's about it.

Got a deal through it is on voucher, to be fair we only paid £99 for the night, which included dinner bed and breakfast, if I had paid the full rate I would not have been happy!! Room wasn't particularly clean, quite small and was stiflingly hot and stuffy. Dinner was positively mediocre from start to finish, lukewarm starter, a... More

Staff from receptionists to bar staff to breakfast waitresses were all very friendly and helpful. we were allocated a lovely room on the 2nd floor, bed was very... More

Stayed overnight on a sunday with a voucher we recieved for Christmas. Staff were pleasant enough but couldn't help feel as we were using a voucher we didn't get the same level of service as full payers. Asked for a double room and got twin beds pushed together right on the top floor which seemed odd to me as I'm... More

Tasty food, good location, nice setting... but service is patchy at best. Our first meal there we had one charming and attentive waiter. The other two times we have had several staff members ask us the same questions (indicating poor delegation), dirty glasses, and not bringing us requested items. One waiter actually touched my shoulder and gave me a condescending... More

We were looking for a decent place with seafood & steaks. Found Rick's just a few minutes walk from Princes Street! Warm welcome and great atmosphere! Menu was attractive and service was even better! We were delighted to be looked after by a very attentive and professional member of staff called Becky. Had a small issue with one of the... More
