They were not pleased when I called after them to point out that 4 items were missing . These they replaced grudgingly . Later that... More

We stayed for a week at the Glasshouse during the Festival season (August 2014), when the population of the city almost doubles. The staff at the hotel were uniformly friendly and pleasant. They offered several suggestions on getting around Edinburgh and venues for various Fringe events. Everyone from the front desk to the cleaning crew appeared to be enjoying themselves... More

Having heard great things about this hotel decided to splash out and have a couple nights here. Staff welcoming and were shown to our room which doesn't happen in many places. The room had access on to the roof garden but felt it wasn't a very big room. Would have been good if you could have laid in bed and... More

This hotel has lovely facilities and is in a great location, but is run in a comedic style by a set of nice but not too skilled Europeans. It is supposedly 5 star. I bought the most expensive room they had, and requested an early checkin, which was not ready, we were directed to the breakfast room to wait. The... More

Well placed for Princes Street. Modern interior behind a gothic frontage. Excellent service and ambiance. We travelled up overnight on the sleeper train and were pleased with the pristine, stylish room. Amazing views of Calton Hill to the rear and across Edinburgh to the front. Recommended.

We had a great stay while in Edinburgh for the Tattoo. The hotel definitely lived up to the nice things we had heard through Smantha Brown's Travel Channel program. We had high expectations and, if anything, they were exceeded.
