My husband & I returned to Royal Overseas for our 1st anniversary. Again we could not fault it. The service is still excellent. The staff are always helpful and the breakfast is superb. We can't wait to come back. :-)

We got a last minute room deal to stay there last night. It was a lovely relaxing hotel, very friendly staff and everything we needed. Great location for everything we wanted, and were able to leave our bags there before and after checkin and check out till we left Edinburgh this afternoon. Breakfast was excellent, nothing we can fault! Would... More

I have just returned from a conference held annually at the Royal OverSeas League in Edinburgh. I stayed in one of the ROSL's comfortable suites with a spectacular view of the castle. The managers Daniel and Colin were efficient, kind and welcoming. They and all the staff took great care of all our delegates over the course of two days.... More

I decided to treat myself and go to Edinbourgh for a few days and found this hotel right in front of the castle . Everything was so near so handy so beautiful. The staff has been very helpful in every occasion, first rate really. I'm looking forward to going back again, hope next year if they 'll have us again.... More

Visited the ROL on an Itison deal, which included bed, breakfast and afternoon champagne tea. The hotel is superbly located on Princes Street with fantastic views of the Castle and the Old Town. Decor is a bit tired and could do with upgrading, but the place was clean and comfortable, and the staff were extremely friendly. Afternoon tea was excellent... More

My friend & I spent 3 wonderful days in Edinburgh staying here, the location is fabulous, our bedroom looked straight across Princes St. at the castle. The food was excellent and the staff friendly & welcoming. We would definitely stay here again.

We stayed in the ROSL hotel on the 13th & 14th March for my girlfriends birthday. After paying a little bit extra than what was being offered elsewhere we had high expectations. so we checked in and dodged past the painters on our floor who had to move all their equipment so we could get through, not ideal but its...

Hotel is in the middle of Princess street overlooking the gardens and castle, I recommend paying that little bit extra for one of the suites (we had Castle suite), very large rooms with views that will take your breath away. Staff were so very helpful from the front desk to the bar/restaurant. Breakfast was delicious with large servings and plenty... More
