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....

This is a very nice guest house within easy walking distance of everything. A stones throw from Holyrood and Calton Hill. Its on a very quiet posh little street. The rooms are big and pretty and the service is friendly. Breakfast was good. I'd stay here again.

We enjoyed our stay here last week, really good breakfasts, comfortable room and very friendly and helpful staff. Hotel suited us well for its situation near East end of Princes Street . Internet accessible in our room, which had a open outlook. The interior of the hotel is beautiful .
