Let me begin by saying that I booked this hotel because it is supposedly a five star hotel. I also stayed at Gleneagles and The Old course Hotel during my trip to Scotland and the Marriott Del-ahoy. Gleneagles and the old course hotel were both outstanding and are true Five star hotels. The Marriott Del-ahoy is a four star resort... More

We stayed at this hotel last year for 6days. The location was perfect! We could walk everywhere we wanted to go. The room we had was amazing - room 81 (glenturret suit) couldn't fault it at all! Could have spent all week here without leaving! The staff were lovely and happy to help with anything! Would definitely recommend this hotel... More

Recently stayed at the Glasshouse, Autograph Collection Hotel in Edinburgh and could not say enough awesome things! Learned how to drink scotch from the staff. Heated bathroom floors. Great location! Great views from the balcony of the room and the common area. Breakfasts had variety and high quality. Roof top deck had great views. Staff was attentive to every need... More

My husband and I stayed at the Glasshouse on our first night in Edinburgh while on our honeymoon. We normally shoot for much more budget friendly hotels, but we wanted to treat ourselves and celebrate our marriage in style! The Glasshouse was well worth the splurge! The hotel staff was friendly, respectful, and helpful. We arrived very early on the... More

Excellent place, with parking in Q-park conveniently located nearly, though parking not exactly cheap.. We stayed two separate nights before and after a trip to see friends further north. Location is a short walk up the hill to Princes Street, opposite a John Lewis store. We had an upgrade to a suite (worth asking for) on our first stay to... More

Upscale hotel in a good location. Our third floor room had a spacious balcony and a wonderful bathroom. Though the bed was a little soft for me, my wife loved it. Modern decor. The third floor has an outdoor garden area with a view of the ocean. We found all of the staff members to be extremely helpful and friendly.... More

Booked one night on points and second night with "real money" for a city break here. Location very convenient, walking distance from Waverley station in Edinburgh. After an initial mix-up about the two separate bookings (all too common it has to be said at most hotel chains), things went very well. The room was both modern and plush, clean but... More

very posh hotel, they bowed at us on arrival. Very helpful staff. Room gigantic, and bath tub like a jacuzzi! Very comfortable, massive balcony and great views. Bed huge, and everything was immaculately clean! Highly recommend and would stay again.

Nice hotel and unusual garden space in the heart of Edinburgh but didn't get the chance to use it due to the heavy rain.Inside the hotel is nice and clean but quite dark and the lack of communal spaces made the hotel lack atmosphere.In house dining opportunities were disappointing so we opted to eat out as the central location offers...

Very clever landscaping of the hotel roof garden against the dramatic background of Calton Hill makes you forget that you are in the centre of Edinburgh, a few minutes walk from Princes Street and Waverley Station. The rooms are comfortable and beautifully furnished in a contemporary "boutique hotel" style. A great welcome from the concierge and reception staff - all... More
