We stayed for one night on a Xmas trip to Edinburgh. We wanted to be within walking distance of the city centre so we could visit the xmas markets and the bars. The hotel is in a very interesting old building but has all the modern comforts one would expect. We didn't eat there but the menu looked interesting Comfortable bed. Nice shower room. We would book here again.

Had an overnight stay here on 6th March. My wife and I have stayed here a few times before, normally for 1-3 nights, and its a great hotel in a good location. Just a few minutes walk from Waverley Station in a quiet street. Staff very helpful and the room was great and very clean. The entrance to the hotel is very inviting with a wonderful coal fire and lounge area. We didn't eat in the hotel so cannot comment on food. We arrived too early for our room to be ready, but hotel happy to check us in and look after our cases until we retuned later. More character than a Premier Inn but price only slightly higher. I'd definitely use this hotel again and recommend it to anyone visiting Edinburgh.

Visited this Hotel for a couple of nights with my Husband.I was looking for a Tradional Hotel for a relaxing break. We arrived by train and the Hotel is just a 5 minute walk from Station. We found The Hotel easily as it is just off Princes Street but in a very quiet street. On walking in to The Hotel lobby/lounge I noticed the lovely cosy coal fire and the fine decor and it was immaculately clean and tidy. WE stayed in a lovely cosy room that had lovely toiletries and even home-made shortbread which was a nice touch and we even had a view in distance of The Sea. We had breakfast and Dinner in Hotel and the food was very nice indeed. I would definitely reccomend this Hotel,it is an absolute gem!

Stayed at the Parliament House Hotel from the 18th to the 20th of Feb. Was a little apprehensive at first due to reading some of the negative reviews. But need not have worried. This is a little gem of a hotel, and well worth staying at if you are planning a trip to Edinburgh. The hotel itself is at the top of quite a steep hill, but we found that if you walked along Princess street and turned left at Calton Hill it was much easier on the legs. It’s in a perfect location for seeing the sights. The hotel is about a 10 min stroll across North Bridge to the Royal Mile for the shops which lead to the castle and other attractions. The hotel itself looks like it was once a house which has been converted and extended. The decor is very quirky and makes a great atmosphere. We stayed in what is probably the older part of the hotel which was great. The reception staff were really friendly and always had a smile when you walked through the door. They were very knowledgeable of the area and gave us some tips on where to go and what to see on our visit. We stayed in room 3, rooms are basic but very comfortable. Soft bed, all very clean so no issues at all. As it’s an old part of the hotel there is some noise from the pipes when other rooms use there water, especially in the morning when other guests are getting ready. But it never affected us or our sleep. In fact it added to the charm of the hotel. If you are of faint mind I’d just like to warn you that some of the rooms back onto a graveyard (ours did), if you feel brave, have a walk round and take a look at this and the graveyard directly across the road. They are fully of local history and well worth a visit. The hotel also leads to the restaurant where breakfast is served. You can also use this for your evening meal if you want. We only used this for breakfast. The food ( breakfast) was fine, no issues at all, great choice of both continental and cooked. If you are considering a trip to Edinburgh and not sure where to stay. I’d recommend the Parliament House Hotel. It’s a great little place with friendly staff and plenty of charm. We would not hesitate to stay here if we were to visit Edinburgh again

I cannot fault the reservation system, the helpfulness of the staff, the quality of the room but it was very disappointing that the food was not of such a great standard. The location is so handy for most of the touristy places and being tucked away very quiet. The Bistro really does not do the hotel justice, although the waiting staff are attentive but obviously run to a tight schedule with serving and preparing tables for the next meal. The choice of food was good, but serving instant decaf coffee for breakfast is not 3*! and hot food on cold plates is so easy to rectify. We felt a few attentions to detail would improve the restaurant significantly (like fresh warm muffins/croissants). The decor looks a bit dated and plastic covered chairs definitely gives the Bistro a rather budget feel. Our room was spacious, clean & well presented, as was the public areas. We were able to book in early (big thank you) and there was provision to leave our cases when we booked out. There’s lot going for PHH - so please bring the Bistro up to the standard of the rest of the hotel!! Ps The lift gives access to most of the rooms.
