Tiny, tiny rooms. Also very hot even though we had a fan on all the time. There seemed a lot of dead space in the hotel, very big lounge which seemed unused and massive reception area. Staff were friendly enough and replaced the blood stained duvet, although they seemed yo doubt that we had this problem yo start with. They... More

Dear Jellycat40 Thank you for your review, although to be honest I am slightly perplexed by its content, it almost makes me question whether or not you did in fact stay here. However I will respond to some of the points raised. Our rooms, due to the nature of Townhouse buildings, do vary and size, and our room types advertised... More

Given I stayed in Edinburgh during the 'Silly Season' the rates were very good, 25% less expensive that a budget hotel slightly closer to town and the Minto is much more persona; & welcoming. This hotel is situated about 20 mins walk from the Royal Mile and surrounding attractions. Having said that Edinburgh public transport is very good for those... More

Great hotel. The reception and bar staff here really go above and beyond, and pay attention to detail, without intruding -- like in a 5 star hotel. Stayed two days and walked to the Kings Building of the University of Edinburgh, a short 10 minute walk; and its about £7 by cab to the castle. There are garden chairs and... More

Limited parking in the hotel grounds but we had travelled by train so not a problem for us. Staff very friendly, knowledgeable and helpful. It is located about 20/25 minute walk from Princes Street/North Bridge. Loads of busses pass the hotel to get into Princes Street, Royal Mile etc. Smallish rooms, very controllable radiators, and not too noisy even although... More

Friendly staff. Room small but clean and cosy. Only suggestion would be to add natural yogurt to the breakfast choices. About a 15 -20 minute easy walk to the centre of Edinburgh. Lots of buses if you are mot up to the walk

I tried to book 3 rooms in the town centre at short notice, without success, the Minto was the closest to the town with parking. The reception and bar area was very pleasant, they were pleased to tell us that there was a new bar menu debuting that night. The rooms we had 3,22 and 23 were very small, the... More

Dear MJ53 Thank you for your review following your recent stay here at the Edinburgh Minto. Although overall it is fairly positive I would like to address your comments in relation to our rooms and your breakfast experience. Due to the nature of our Georgian Townhouse buildings, we are unable to make many physical alterations to the structure, however what... More
