Learned that Inchgrove was being refurbished. Offered 17a round the corner on Abercromby Place. Just fantastic. Host ,Duncan, top chap. Fabulous Scottish breakfast (although my colleagues defaulted to ,"English"). This man could not have been more helpful. Don't think twice, just book it.

Stayed here on a business trip for two nights. My room was on the lower ground floor which had a four poster bed in the room. Large bedroom and bathroom. The building has recently undergone a 'facelift'. It was clean and tidy. Large breakfast - and a fantastic choice of food cooked to perfection! Included fruit juices, cereals, toast, cooked... More

Firstly the location was perfect for us, we went during the fringe festival and although we love being in the thick of it the majority of the time when you want a bit of peace this place is a real haven and yet only a stroll from the Assembly rooms on George street. The rooms are incredibly comfortable a real... More

We stayed at this hotel the weekend of the "Open" when all the usual 4 star hotels wanted £550 per night room only - robbers! However, by a happy accident we found Inchgrove House, and could not have been happier. The room was large, clean, comfortable and with beautiful decor. The "host" Duncan was delightful & breakfast was truly wonderful.... More

I don't know where the other reviewers stayed, but our Inchgrove House experience certainly differs from theirs. Since there is no sign on the door we weren't even sure we had the right address but fortunately another party arrived by taxi and a lady stepped out of the door then to greet us - never ever introducing herself. We had... More

Great location for easy access to the centre of Edinburgh. Just down from the main shopping streets and within 0.5 mile walk to the Castle/Royal Mile. The main hotel was full so we had 2 rooms in the Annex which is really a separate flat 0.5 miles from the Hotel proper. Easy to walk to from Waverley station. We were... More

I have to admit, when we first saw this place, we thought "is this really a hotel?" The initial concerns were quickly overcome as we saw that the place is beautiful. The breakfast was fantastic but made all the better by Walter & Duncan giving their history of the house and Edinburgh. I'll definitely stay there next time.
