We stayed at the Terrace with another couple in mid August. Position is excellent with close proximity to restaurants etc and easy walking distance to the Royal Mile. In fact, we watched the Tattoo one evening and then walked back to the Terrace. Rooms were clean and spacious and the brekkie was excellent. The only down side was carrying two... More

This is an excellent place to stay in a quiet area of the City. It is very comfortable and everybody is very friendly. The breakfast is very good and is served by a delightful young lady. There is parking outside, which is a bonus.

We stayed for two nights at the Terrace Hotel. It is a beautiful old building and an easy walk into the Old Town. Our room was large, very clean and comfortable.The breakfasts were excellent and host/staff very friendly and helpful. Great value for money!

Just stayed the one night but absolutely no complaints at all. Our room was large and comfortable, and the breakfast was good. I guess parking may be a bit dicey during the week as it's predominantly resident's permit places or meter but this didn't effect us at weekend. Like most places we visited in Edinburgh the welcome and service was... More

Just spent two nights at the Terrace Hotel and what a pleasant stay it was. I had a room on the very top floor which is a bit of a hike up four flights but I was warned before arriving so no drama there. Room was comfortable and clean if a little basic but the free wifi worked very well... More

We stayed here for four nights whilst visiting the Edinburgh Festival and would most certainly recommend it. It is situated just out of the hustle and bustle of the city centre, but is in easy walking distance. There are lots of good restaurants closeby, particularly Cafe Marlayne (5 min walk). The rooms are spacious and well appointed in this lovely... More

Lovely BB on a cobbled street in a quiet area of Edinburgh but close to all attractions. Walking distance to pubs and restaurants. Rooms really clean and nice with excellent breakfast choices. Excellent value for money compared to all the chain hotels.

This is such a charming hotel, and you notice it as soon you walk in the door and meet the lovely Michael. Location is perfect; we stayed here for the Edinburgh fringe and were so close to all the action, whilst still set against the drop back of Arthur's seat at the castle. Breakfast was fantastic and was so worth... More

I only met Michael, he was lovely. Made me feel very welcome. Great location, only a short walk to the Royal Theatre & Princes Street. Clean & comfortable room with a nice view of the garden. Good brekkie. Would stay again. :)
