Stayed at the Terrace for 2 nights what a great find, Rooms spacious, clean and very comfortable. Staff very pleasant and accommodating. Breakfast was very good. The hotel is situated within easy walking distance of the town centre and theater district. We had great few days exploring this beautiful city and this was complimented by our stay at the Terrace...

I have been to Edinburgh three times and I finally found a quiet, comfortable place to sleep! This location is just far enough away from the action that you can sleep soundly but just a perfect distance that you can walk comfortably to the Royal Mile as well. The shower was hot with great water pressure too. I won't stay... More

Found this place on one of the discount hotel booking sites, can't remember which, & very pleased we did! Great location by Calton Hill & a stone's throw from the Holyrood Palace end of the Royal Mile / excellent base for sightseeing which is what our 3-night trip was all about. Facilities excellent too: clean, well-serviced room & en-suite toilet... More

Beautiful building, friendly staff, very clean rooms, excellent breakfast. Nice and quiet in the rear rooms overlooking Carlton Hill walks. Car parking is even reasonable, if you follow the rules. Wonderful interior stairway and cupula, there is no lift.

Have stayed here on 3 occasions now and have never been disappointed. Michael the owner is a delight and couldn't do more for you. The rooms are huge with lots of space and the breakfasts are lovely, we will always come back here when visiting Edinburgh as the location and friendliness add to our holiday.

When I was looking for somewhere to stay for one night I was ideally looking for somewhere which was relatively cheap (for Edinburgh!) and pretty central. The Terrace Hotel is a fantastic find, it's excellent value for money, walking distance to Princes St/Royal Mile so you probably won't need a taxi at any point unless you're feeling lazy ;) The...

Hotel has everything you need for a comfortable stay in Edinburgh. For breakfast there was a large array of choice and was tasty. The rooms were large and comfortable. I would definitely stay here again.

Many times B&Bs and smaller hotels are advertised as being »family run«, but very rarely they really are. The Terrace is one of these rare examples. Michael and his wife are heart and soul of this lovely hotel and they are there for you 24/7, all three shifts, round the clock. The location is very good, in New Town, but... More

The Terrace Hotel is located in a row of impressive Georgian style houses at the base of Calton Hill. Its about a 15 minute walk from the train station and makes for a great location close enough to walk to any amenities in the Old Town or New Town yet away from the crowds and bustle of the Royal Mile....
