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 .

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.

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
