We stayed at Hanover House Hotel over New Years. Our room was great and was a good size. We had a cooked breakfast every morning which set us up for the day. The location was perfect, it was in walking distance to the centre of edinburgh and this made our trip very easy and stress free. Jasmin was also friendly... More

This is not a hotel but a guest house/bed and breakfast. The location is fine but this alone does not justify the cost. In December we found our accommodation to be very cold and on check out were not permitted to leave our luggage to be picked up later!

This is not a hotel but a guest house/ B&B with limited resources. Although clean the whole place is badly in need of painting and maintenance. We were greeted on arrival by a person whose English was limited and hard to understand. The "en suite" was a corner taken off the room with Saniflo plumbing, which made quite a din... More

A bit of a mixed review for this stay. We payed quite a large sum of money for our room and honestly did not feel that it valued up to the amount that we payed. Ok welcoming in, but on first impressions it felt as though we were staying at a B+B and not a hotel. Sort of felt like... More

Great place, traditional new town house with original features. Friendly but unobtrusive hosts, good breakfast selection - hosted an early breakfast for us, as we wanted to get away early. Some of the decor was a bit tired but that's reflected in the value price! Would stay again. Thanks.

We had a really nice 4 night stay at the Hanover House Hotel during our visit in mid August 2014 for the Fringe. Jasmin is a lovely, helpful host who cooks a lovely breakfast. Our room (no. 2) was good, not massive, but big enough for us two, the bathroom was particularly small, shower only which wasn't great for my... More

We stayed for two nights in August to attend The Fringe. Hanover House is in a great location for getting around Edinburgh as it is very close to several bus routes and actually within walking distance of Waverley Station on Princes Street if you don't have heavy luggage. Jasmin was very welcoming and helpful getting our cases upstairs. Breakfast offered... More

I stayed here for 2 nights on 24th and 25th July. I really loved the peace and quiet after a noisy night spent in the Isle of Bute. The bed was so very comfortable and I slept well. The breakfasts were wholesome and Jasmine cooked whatever you wanted. Jasmine and her husband were vety helpful and friendly. Next time I... More

We can't agree with the many of the other reviewers! We had travelled a distance from Cornwall and were greeted by Jasmine who didn't even ask us where we were from or how our journey had been,quite odd for a guest house owner! The interior,despite being a hugely attractive house with terrific Georgian features, is quite tired and shabby and... More
