Stayed here for one night in September with my husband. Room was extremely noisy because of an air conditioning unit on a roof right outside the room. This was turned off when we complained but then it was turned on again so we had to complain again. The view from the room was a dirty area where the staff go... More

Stayed one night, the room was clean and tidy rather small but good for the price, Only complaint I would have was the shambles of a breakfast, rather than having the breakfast menu as advertised there was no continental breakfast only a full breakfast was available and it was a buffet. Only to descover no food left!!! I asked twice... More

Me and my girlfriend stayed here for one night for a short break away. The room itself was nice, but not £100 a night nice, but saying that breakfast was included in that price but again that was average to say the least. The biggest flaw was that the shower in our room was wasn't at all powerful and not... More

Booked this as a stop on the way from Southern England to Caithness and was attracted by a mix of value plus off-street parking close to Princes Street. With a 15 to 20 minute walk into Princes Street and several busses available, it was perfect. The room was a little noisy with the window open and the room itself a... More

Got married here last year. Came back for a meal for our first anniversary. Thank you to the general manager and all staff for making it special by giving us the honeymoon suite for our meal with music, candles and petals. Food was excellent and our own personal waiter too. It was lovely going back into the garden to reminice.... More

Because the Minto is on a bus route it is handy to Edinburgh down town. 4 of from New Zealand shared a family room there and found it very comfortable. Helpful receptionists, and friendly staff. We would recommend it to our fellow travellers.

We had two nights in this dated, old fashioned, in desperate need of decoration hotel. The room was large and quite adequate but the toilet was filthy and had not been cleaned since the previous occupancy. The receptionist quickly dispatched a cleaner but really, should this have been? The parking was wholly inadequate and even though I am registered disabled... More

Dear Jim M Thank you for your review following your recent stay here at The Edinburgh Minto Hotel. It is disappointing for all of us when we get things wrong, and I am sorry that it appears perhaps our lovely independent hotel is not quite for you. Indeed my team did all they could on the day to assist you... More

While my stay at the Minto Hotel was not unpleasent my room was not particularly well kept and the bathroom had a lot of cobwebs and dirty marks on the tiles that had clearly gone un-noticed for quite some time. The carpet did not look to have been vacuumed and the bedding was quite poor. Having seen the room my... More

Had a single night stay on the last Saturday of the festival period. Room good, breakfast good. Staff very helpful: info on buses to the centre, even changing notes for us to be able to get the exact fare. We managed to leave a wallet/purse in the room, having knocked it down the back of the desk. The staff clearly... More
