No smile or welcome when you walk down. The other man and woman were great, fantastic manners and reception staff were amazing. The hotel is in... More

The thistle hotel on manor place was a great place to stay. My wife and I enjoyed every minute of it. The bar was excellent and the staff did everything possible to make our stay perfect. The room was amazing and the location was perfect. I have already booked again for my next trip up.

The staff were fantastic at this hotel, especially Neil the manager and Linda the housekeeper. Everyone was very friendly and helpful. The room was very spacious and clean and located just a 15 minute walk from the shops in a quiet area. Me and my partner really enjoyed our stay!

Stayed for 2 nights and thoroughly enjoyed it, the hotel is situated in s quiet street and a 10 minute walk to Princes street and there is three decent pubs just round the corner, The staff are friendly, professional and were very helpful. The hotel itself is clean and tidy and our room was very nice. I would definitely return

I travelled alone for this trip - Booked a single room which was comfortable, clean and well decorated if not a little small though this is the first time I booked a single room. The hotel itself is very traditional and authentic. I felt very safe and comfortable as lone traveller and plan to return with my partner at some... More

The Hotel is a lovely old city house. Very British interior. Good atmosphere. Our room was a huge suite with a great bath tube. Really nice staff! Good breakfast and very good service by the breakfast and at the reception. I am sure we will stay there again next year.

This place was all around fantastic. My wife and I stayed here during our recent European vacation, and loved every night of it. Location is great, but do expect about a 15 minute walk to downtown Edinburgh area. Our room was very spacious, very clean, and quiet, but could get a little cold at night from thin windows. Wi-fi was... More
