AMAZING stay. Great place to stay and very hospitable. Amazing location, in new town and ten minutes walk to old town - doable for any age. Great rooms and very comfortable beds. I would recommend this townhouse to anyone and I do hope to come back soon. The price is very much so worth the stay and would gladly come... More

I stayed here with my partner, we had a brilliant time, the location was fantastic and the staff were really friendly and helpful! I would definitely recommend this hotel to a friend. The room we were in wasn't quite as nice as all those on the website but still very nice, clean, comfy and cosy!

Upon arrival the owners were extremely friendly and gave us a mini tour of Edinburgh via his map which we found extremely helpful! The bed was very comfortable and... More

Stayed for two nights, excellent location and well kept rooms with comfortable bed and well functioning bathroom. Room was very warm, but we opened the window during the night, so heat was not a problem. However, there was very regular loud noise during the entire night from a nearby glass dump (this was in a rear facing room). I slept... More

Thank You for your kind review of Edinburgh Townhouse. We are glad that you enjoyed your stay here with us. I must apologize for the outside noise which also woke me on the night in question. I have addressed this with the owner of the restaurant who's staff should not have been disposing of bottles at 3am. Our sincere apologies... More

We booked two rooms for a family visit. Great location and central for all attractions with 10 minute walk to Waverley railway station. Very clean and comfortable facilities with a warm welcome provided. Recommended and we hope to return.

The place was in a magnificent location (just off George Street) it was clean and beautifully furnished and the owners were incredibly helpful and friendly. It only took 5 minutes to get anywhere in the city and for such a reasonably priced stay, is was perfect! Well worth a visit!

We stayed here when we came up for the xmas markets. Its in an ideal location in town close to all the excellent pubs on rose street. There are a few stairs to walk up but this didnt bother us. The staff were very welcoming and even gave us a map which became very handy when we were exploring. The... More
