Hotel was clean and comfortable and in a quiet, tidy area of the New Town. The rooms were a decent size and the top rooms very quiet. Internet reception was a little patchy in the top floor rooms, but reception was strong in the dining area and we greatly appreciated not being charged for internet use, so definitely no grounds...

A very nice hotel, the girl who checked us in (Ella I think) was very pleasant and acknowledged us throughout our stay. We had breakfast and dinner in the hotel both days. The food was lovely and the waiter (Diamtar I think) who we seen both at Breakfast and Dinner is an asset to the hotel. Very friendly even though... More

While vacationing in Scotland, my husband and I made a quick trip to visit Edinburgh and booked a room at The Thistle. Room was very spacious and comfortable. During this time, temperatures were very high for Scotland, but the staff made every effort to make us comfortable. They opened the windows for us, and even provided a fan for us!... More

We just returned from a 6 night stay at this great find, on a nice quiet street. From the moment we walked in, we were amazed by the old time and beautiful stairwell going up to the rooms. There is no lift here, so potential guests who have trouble with stairs may want to look elsewhere. There is extensive and... More

This is a comfortable and nice little hotel, with big rooms and a friendly atmosphere. The staff do their best to make your stay a good one, always helpful. However, the prices were too high for what is basically an upgraded B&B.
