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.

Spend my husbands birthday here and had a fantastic night. Room was very spacious and the staff had taken the time to put petals on our bed in a shape of a heart as a surprise! Lovely 3 course meal in the bar area and again staff asked a number of times if we were ok. Reception staff even went... More

Our one night stay in Edinburgh was great and the Hotel was great. Good location, parking and the amazing Melanie on the front desk..... Not everyone can be looked after as well as we were but we had an amazing experience and will book again as we go to Edinburgh at least 6 times a year. Clean, tidy and modern... More

I had a single room for one night, albeit on the Ryder Cup weekend which meant the room charge was very high (this excluded breakfast). From a quick check, the normal rate seems to be £60 for the room on a Saturday night. I was charged £135 (!!!) which feels almost larcenous... On the plus side, staff were fine and... More
