A perfectly acceptable hotel to stay in - the bed was comfortable, the rooms were clean and the staff were helpful. The décor is a little dated but in no ways does this affect the stay in the hotel. No lift is available if you are on a top floor which can be a hindrance if not able to carry... More

GOOD: 1.The staff is friendly; 2. Luggage room if you have afternoon flight; 3.Relatively close to main attractions. BAD: everything else. Dirty,no lift,poor furniture. Above all, what really annoyed us was the PLASTIC CUPS??? RITZ - Edinburgh, CHANGE YOUR NAME!!! (example - Hostel Backpackers,etc.)

Shocking hotel, the room we was in there was no lighting in bathroom, TV was broke, no heating and it was freezing. We complained and was upgraded to a superior room, which we was really grateful for. However there was nothing superior about the room at all. The wall paper was peeling off walls it was in a bad was.... More

But, wonderful! So central, warm and those beautiful floor to ceiling triple drapes. We loved this place with it's quite friendly lil' bar full of interesting Folk. A very old building adapted to us! We loved our short stay.

horrible place. the place used to be a B&B but after it stopped serving breakfast it decided that it is a hotel. let me highlight the experience: 3rd floor room - no lift ans narrow staircase. the room smelled like mold and the floor was covered in an old dirty looking cheap carpet. the floor squeaked like it was going...

Looking online at this hotel, the impression was that this was a lovely place with charm. It was a bit embarrassing, as I was the one who booked it, when myself and my mum arrived and went upstairs to our room. The wallpaper was shoddy and falling off the wall in some places, some of the panels in the bathroom... More

Well I'll start with the positives I suppose.. Fresh towels and that's about it. Well first off I'd like to mention the cleaners are thieves; I left loose change hanging around the room as a test of trust. I left the room in the morning to go shopping and later on my return the change had gone. More expensive items... More

Very quite place, the buildings are a little too old but not too bad (probably they need some maintenance), the position is good and also the price was good for the period (new year's eve), reception very helpful.

Very disappointed with this hotel. Clearly no money has been invested for years. When we arrived the lady implied the lift was not working, in fact there was no lift! We booked a deluxe double which was very shabby, the cleanliness of the place was very poor. The bedroom itself was tiny with stains on the carpet, furniture was broken,... More
