DO NOT STAY HERE Please do not waste your money to a business who is only concerned about making money and not protecting people! I booked a reservation in June, there was no option for free cancellation at the time, I now have tested positive for COVID so unable to attend my reservation, they will not allow us to change our dates, even though we offered to pay more! Because we paid the cheaper rate this is not allowed! They are not helpful and very rude, very hypocritical when they send a text saying it’s their main priority keeping everyone accommodated and safe during COVID what a lie! I am so frustrated not that we can’t change it but how unhelpful and rude they were, when you’ve worked frontline for 2 years and you can’t amend your dates

Lovely little hotel in a great location, not directly in the centre but a 2 min walk from the high street which was perfect for us. We only noticed on the last day that there is a Alchemist bar round the corner. The staff were super friendly and the rooms were spacious but cosy, warm and very clean. (It was freezing in Edinburgh so we were glad to get back into a warm but comfortable room! You can turn the radiators off though but I usually find hotels quite cold) We didn’t even eat or drink in the hotel but there was an option for breakfast. We just preferred to go out and eat and experience the city. I would definitely book again if I went back to Edinburgh 😊

Excellent hotel with great location next to everything we needed. Rooms were very nice and clean with very comfortable bed. Our room came with breakfast which was also very nice! All staff were extremely helpful and polite. We will certainly be back!

We stayed at the Parliament House Hotel twice within a few short weeks and enjoyed our visit both times. We spoke to various people at Reception, who were all welcoming and eager to help, and extremely friendly and keen to assist in any way they could. The location is superb, close to Waverley Station and the major tourist sights (Calton Hill is right next to the hotel) and shopping areas of Edinburgh and there are plenty of nearby restaurants. It makes this hotel incredibly good value as a result. Breakfast is excellent and goo value if it isn't part of your room rate, there is a selection of pastries, toast, cereal, fruit and cooked to order hot dishes, from a cooked breakfast to porridge. The two different rooms we had were large, and comfortable and very COVID secure as housekeeping does not visit during stay, but you can get fresh towels etc. If you request it. The rooms contained fridges, hairdryers, kettle and wardrobe. The bathrooms had a shower and bath and good-sized sinks, but the first room we had had a very noisy extractor fan and the second room a shower curtain that kept clinging to you as it wafted in an unidentified breeze, which was annoying. The website is very informative, including places to eat locally and Reception are happy to keep bags after you check out. There were a few downsides to Parliament House Hotel. Both beds felt a bit lumpy, and the pillows were awful, either too shallow or gave you a crooked neck. If you arrive by car you can pick up and drop off outside the hotel, but the car park is round the corner in an underground private car park. It’s a bit of a pain to drive to, Reception talked me through it well, and even though you can get a discount from Reception that you can use when you pay at the ticket machine, the price is quite steep, not that the hotel has any control over it. One end of the street that the hotel is on is quite steep so walking to the hotel from that end can be a bit tricky if it’s wet or you are loaded down with bags. Inside the hotel is a bit of a warren of corridors and staircases and the lift does not cover all the areas so if you have mobility issues you would do well to mention it when booking. The rooms were a little dated, with a worn armchair in one room, and the heating is very warm. There is no air conditioning and the sash windows in both rooms only opened a small amount. On our second stay, we received an email about the COVID protocols without an explanation or header, which felt impersonal and unwelcoming, unlike arrival in person. This may put off some people. Other than these points our stays at the Parliament House Hotel were excellent and we would definitely look to stay again when in Edinburgh.

Pros: -location close to train station and walking distance to most major tourist sites -staff. From the minute we arrived, every staff member couldn't be more accomodating and friendly. Very professional. -room was well laid out, updated. Lighting, bedside plug-ins, kettle and coffee supplies, fridge, plenty of drawers and counter space. -bathroom was very good and always nice and warm. Great rain shower head as well as second removable shower head. -lobby was intimate but not too small. Had fireplace, comfortable seating and was a good place to meet for drinks at the end of the day. No bar, but staff would serve guests. -everything tastefully decorated and clean. Cons: -we had 2 rooms, one was a great size, one was a bit small for a multinight stay. If staying for more than a couple of nights, better to book a bigger room. -we were traveling in off season but Edinburgh is a busy place. With the climate conference just ending and a rugby weekend happening rates were high. In line with other hotels though, just a bit of sticker shock. Overall: highly recommend for location, comfort, and staff attentiveness.
