After reading all the good reviews about this hotel we were expecting alot more for our money. we had booked the delux room which we found very average. The tv was an old portable with only 4 channels and was very small and hard to see while laying in bed! we didnt go away for the weekend to watch tv... More

This hotel is everything the best reviewers have said. It is elegant but friendly, is in a quiet road but very convenient for the centre and easy walking distance from the station. The owners are quietly determined that everything should be perfect for their guests, and breakfast is a work of art - and delicious!

We had a lovely stay here. The owner was really friendly, helpful and professional throughout. The hotel is immaculate and very well presented. Breakfast was a work of art and a good choice is offered. Its on a quiet Georgian street, about 10 mins walk to the Old Town (Royal Mile etc) & just around the corner from loads of... More

If like me you have read all of the reviews and are struggling to make your mind up...let me do it for you. I read them all, decided that I would make my own mind up....a beautiful stunning Georgian Terraced Town House that has been sympathetically resorted in absolute exquisite detail. The owner is an extremely pleasant lady who explained... More

Its been a while since I stayed at Dukes, but the experience left me with such a bad memory I thought it would be quite theraputic to talk about it! My sister and I booked a room here as it was very reasonably priced. The accomodation was ok, but the bathroom (top floor) had an extremely low ceiling. Would have... More

We recently stayed in room 4 for 3 nights but only had one good nights sleep as we found the mattress too hard and the pillows too soft. The bathroom was so tiny, barely more than a cupboard.We had to sit sideways on the loo for fear of burning ourselves on the heated towel rail next to it. Although the... More

Not only would I never book this hotel again, I felt compelled to write a review which I have never done before. Be aware that UK hotels describe the first floor as the ground floor which makes the 2nd floor actually the 3rd floor. This was our mistake but it becomes an issue when you must go up the attic...
