We came to Edinburgh for a wedding of my partners son, and we chose the Minto hotel as it is close to his home, the first night we found our room was a bit small for us , so we asked if we could move , the lady on reception grabbed a key and came up with us to the... More

Could be better. For the money paid I expected a bigger room and to at least have control of the heating! Spent the whole night sweating and uncomfortable. I realise Edinburgh is pricey in general but there are other places close by that are cheaper and very much more spacious! Overall not worst stay ever but not in a hurry... More

The staff are a true credit to the hotel. Amy behind the bar and Melanie at reception in particular. Hotel is clean, tidy & well presented as are the rooms. A full English breakfast was provided and was cooked to a high standard. A throughly enjoyable stay.

My boyfriend and I stayed the weekend at Minto Hotel and it was beautiful. The staff couldn't have been nicer. The receptionist's recommended what to do in the city and where to eat, they couldn't have been more helpful. The room that we stayed in was beautiful, was very spacious, very clean and very luxurious. We had breakfast included in... More

I only stayed one night. From the first moment I arrived I was well looked after by helpful friendly staff who couldn't do enough to make my stay a really good experience. Everyone from Jill the Manager to the Receptionist were welcoming. The food was excellent. I would feel confident recommending this hotel to anyone.

I feel mixed about this hotel. The staff were lovely, really helpful and on check in told us they had put us into a room at the back, off the main road as its regularly used for emergency vehicles. Right enough on our various trips to and from the centre of town (which takes around 20mins walking) we did see... More

Ismet and his team were kindness itself when we had an enforced stay in Edinburgh (a medical emergency). They made us feel so at home and could not have been more helpful. Besides the human aspects, the hotel is beautifully and tastefully decorated and the cooked breakfasts were something special. Having asked for a quiet room, we got exactly that,... More

I recently took my other half to Edinburgh for his birthday. I booked the Edinburgh Minto as it looked modern, trendy and close to the city centre - exactly what I was looking for. We arrived at the hotel after finding it was about a 20 minute walk from the city centre - which is fine if the weather is... More

Staff were really friendly. We could park right outside the hotel and the bus into Edinburgh stopped opposite so very convenient travel. Our room was lovely, really modern and bed was super comfy. Was for a romantic weekend away and we had a fab time. Definitely recommend for good value for money.
