Stayed here for a long weekend to watch Royal Military Edinburgh Tattoo 2015 with friends. Room and bathroom is clean and tidy. Easy to catch a bus into Edinburgh city centre or take a nice walk instead if there's time to kill. Either way, extremely easy. Hotel employees are very helpful and accommodating. Melanie has been extremely helpful in advising... More

We stayed for 3 days and were upgraded to honeymoon suite as this was free. Lovely spacious room, comfy bed, large bathroom, sofa-huge tv and access to garden. Staff very friendly and helpful which is rare for a hotel these days. Excellent selection at breakfast for £7.50 with well presented and tasty food. Plentiful bus routes into town about 10-15...

Invited to a wedding at this location and decided to stay over and make a weekend of it, big mistake Having been involved in the wedding industry for over 25yrs we were absolutely astounded at the complete lack of co-ordination, professionalism and experience throughout the day. Bride arrived to the full contingent of guests standing around the front door. The... More

Great for being away from the busy town centre but close enough on a 10 minute bus journey with plenty of buses at least every 10 minutes. Never tried the food as we always ate out but when we ordered drinks from the bar, staff were capering in the back, took me 15 minutes to get served on a Saturday... More

After the conclusion of a two week clan gathering tour, my husband and I extended our stay for a few days in Edinburgh. We had experienced a variety of locations and accommodations on our trip. The Minto nicely met all of our needs. In one area however it exceeded all the other hotels we stayed in--the friendly helpful staff. We... More

Clean friendly hotel. Easy walking distance or bus into town. Head receptionist very knowledgeable and welcoming. All staff were helpful. Rooms are small and bathroom is teeny but towels were soft and fluffy. Food and drinks reasonably priced. The hotel is modern and nicely decorated. Great for a short break. Thankyou

Chose this hotel because it offered parking in a relatively central location for our weekend away. There are very limited spaces though so we were lucky to get one. The reception staff were very pleasant but the room was barely large enough for a double bed. That aside the room and ensuite were clean and functional.

The reception lady was very friendly - but that's it. The room was tiny, the bathroom was mouldy. We actually left the hotel after one night as soon as we had booked another one. Interestingly, the reception lady was not surprised and told the manager (?) what was the problem without even asking us - so she already knew.
