If it had not been for the very nice receptionist I would have rated the Minto Hotel as terrible. We were attending a function close by and that is why we chose the Minto. Checked in and dropped of out bags and went of to our function. It was only on our settling in for the night when we returned... More

Good clean hotel with friendly staff, great shower and nice breakfast but our bed was very uncomfy - 2 soft singles zipped together with gap in the middle. Single not wide enough to sleep 2 and if we tried to sleep on a mattress each we didnt have enough duvet so I ended up in the gap. We could also... More

The Minto Hotel is independently owned/managed and this gives it a unique charm not found at the larger corporate hotels. Some people may find these 'charms' unacceptable, but I personally like the trend and quirkiness often found in independent hotels, which often reflect the town or city they are in. We arrived at 6pm and were welcome by the receptionist... More

I booked the Minto as a birthday treat for my friend. A little outside the City but so easy to access by frequent buses and you are 5 mins away. The hotel sits on a nice quiet road, staff are very friendly and the hotel is clean and pretty. Would defo stay again great value for the money.

We would like to say a big thank you to the staff at the Minto for making our honeymoon extra special. It was a lovely surprise to be upgraded to the honeymoon suite (which is beautiful) and we felt very pampered. The staff are lovely and very helpful and the resturant food was good too. We walked into the city... More

I selected this hotel for its location as much as anything. It is out of the city centre but not so far that walking is not unreasonable. The amenities were generally in line with what I would expect from such an establishment. And helpful staff. But a couple of areas where I was a bit disappointed. I arrived the same... More

I booked my room here many months before my stay and received a very generous discount through Expedia. The room was all I expected: bright, well decorated, modern; a good size. I only had breakfast on one of the four mornings but found it not quite to my taste: as a Scot now living in England I had been looking... More

I've just recently returned from my stay at The Minto and I was completely impressed by the whole experience the whole time. Having just arrived in Edinburgh after a six hour train journey I made the short walk to the hotel. I would advise others to use the bus or a taxi to get from Edinburgh Waverley Station to The...

The hotel room is clean, and the staff is friendly. It is also easy to reach by public transport. a slight problem I had was the slow WiFi, which actually totally cut off on day two around 10am. when I left even the Tv signal was off.
