The Glasshouse is a beautiful hotel in the heart of the city. We stayed in the executive suite, it was modern, clean, beautiful, had a lovely view over the gardens with a little seating area at the patio doors, floor to ceiling windows, fantastic shower, and the most comfortable bed I've ever slept in. We had dinner in the snug... More

My wife and I have just stayed at this hotel for one night. It was a Xmas present from our son, and his girlfriend, and was room only. We travelled from Fife by bus, and the hotel is only a short walk from the St andrews bus station. We visit Edinburgh regularly, and the hotel is ideally situated in every... More

We had an amazing two nights at this hotel for our wedding anniversary. We travelled by train from Kent and this hotel is an easy walk from the station.

We had a three night stay here whilst coming to Edinburgh to see Wicked. The location is perfect for The Playhouse, you couldn't get closer. The reception staff were professional but not very friendly. The bell boys, maids and waiting staff were lovely. Our room was upgraded from a standard room to one which is on the roof garden. This...

We have stayed at the glasshouse several times. The last few times were via an Itison discount deal. With this deal you got a high tea and breakfast. The high tea was a bit different, with the selection of items being a bit tricky to eat, overcooked or just not quite hitting the spot. The breakfasts were nothing special, for... More

What an amazing weekend at the Glasshouse Hotel for my wife's 40th Birthday. On Arrival we were upgraded to the Bowmore Suite which was fab with a massive balcony. The staff were superb and could not have been more helpful. The room itself was lovely and had a seating area which was great for pre dinner drinks. My wife's parents... More

We stayed here a couple of years ago for 3 nights and it was a great experience. We had a room on the top floor so our doors opened out onto the roof top garden. The bed was the comfiest I have ever slept in. The hotel is also in an excellent location, right next door to the play house... More

Had a lovely mid week stay at The Glasshouse. When we arrived we were told that we had been upgraded to an executive room which was beautiful.
