In hotell-expensive Edinburgh this is what you need for a good bed in the beutiful Town. Good beds, quiet and on a nice street. Its walkable to the city or choose one of many buses. Buy a day card for the bus and you can go many times a day. Breakfast is OK. Standard Continental with a small buffé -... More

My husband and I decided to stay there after being recommended to do so. The experience was just as had been described. The guest house is about 15 minutes leisurely walk away from the main attractions of the city centre. The iconic arthur seat view from our rooms window was a delightful surprise. The lady who owned the house was... More

As this was hotel was the only one we found with vacancies we were a little anxious. Our fears were unfounded and we would definitely return. I don't know what the main hotel is like as we were in the newly built annex at the back. The en-suite room was plenty big enough, warm and comfortable. They don't do cooked... More

Having read the not so positive reviews on the hotel here prior to our trip, I wasnt expecting too much! And I guess probably because of that, I was pleasantly surprised when we checked in to our room. Which was surprisingly big and spacious one with more than enough space for our luggages and ample space to walk around freely.... More

My friends and I arrived late two weeks ago and we received one of the warmest and biggest welcomes ever. The lovely Irish lady was most charming (so sorry, forgot her name now but she didnt have a typical Irish name anyway).We apologised for arriving so late but she did not seem to mind at all. The lobby was bright... More

I am writing related to my supposed to stay visit on 7th August booked through the awful booking.com which provided a very poor customer service. To start with this shouldn't ever be called Minto House Hotel!!! It is an awfully old fashioned house with no double glazing, very old and dated paint and extremely messy from the very first time...

I've stayed here a few times during Edinburgh Fringe. It's great value for money compared to other places in Edinburgh during the festival and it's in an excellent location. I've always found it to be really friendly and clean. The family that run it are lovely.

Had a great stay from the start, the hostess was super welcoming and helpful. Our room was clean , spacious and freshly decorated. Breakfast was simple but nice all the same. Free wifi was nice to have as well. Hotel was just across the road from a bus stop that ran regular buses into the city center. Overall had a... More

The room was basic and breakfast was only served for an hour and the lady running it seemed very stressed. Family room was quite cramped and the bathroom was verging on poor. Not worth the amount paid.
