4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

We were going to the Fringe in Edinburgh and wanted to book a nice hotel. However, I am one of these people who like to research were I am going and, therefore, spent quite some time trawling all the sites, reading hundreds of reviews on lots of hotels, checking prices and locations. I eventually settled on the Roxburghe - could... More

Excellent service from the beginning. No request went unheard. We checked in early and our room was ready. This seemed to be common as I watched others check in early while we were there for 4 days. We had a junior suite which was a newly upgraded room with a balcony and mini bar (small frig). Very nice room with... More

First of all, let me say we didn't actually stay in the hotel, we attended an event. We were at the Edinburgh Vegan Festival and we were so impressed with our dealings with the hotel staff and I was keen to share my comments. I thought the staff here were so incredibly nice and professional. We had left and struggled... More

We arrived at hotel at 2 pm and had our car parked for us. We were upgraded to a beautiful room overlooking Edinburgh castle in 5th floor. Staff were extremely courteous and couldn't do any more for you. We also had a late check out arranged so we could spend more time in Edinburgh. Fabulous will be back. Saw fireworks... More

What a wonderful way to finish our Insight Coach Tour of Ireland and Scotland by staying at this beautiful Hotel. We were very lucky to have had a room in the new section on the third floor. It was a beautiful large room with a lovely bathroom and plenty of room for my friend and I to put our suitcases.... More

The Roxburghe certainly looks nice now and is pretty comfortable. It's let down in odd small ways. For instance, I ordered a newspaper in the morning which didn't turn up, twice - when I asked, the receptionist said another guest had probably stolen it - a curious attitude. The thing which really disappointed, and isn't worthy of a hotel of... More

The hotel is situated in the heart of the city and, whose entrance forms part of a beautiful Georgian Terrace. The staff are extremely professional and helpful providing you guide of what is best in the city. The rooms are elegantly acquitted and the corridors are maintained to the highest standard. The location is in the "New Town", surrounded by... More

The situation on Charlotte Square is perfect. If you arrive by car, someone will deal with it (£25 a night parking). The hotel has not lost its Georgian feel, but has been thoroughly modernised. Excellent service - on arrival, we noticed the window of our room had been visited by a delinquent seagull. We mentioned it to the man who... More

Ideally situated for the centre of Edinburgh, the hotel definitely needs attention to cleanliness, housekeeping need to look at skirting boards, and windowsills, paintwork needs to be addressed by maintanence, hopefully if we stay again this will have been rectified.

Staying in New Town

Neighborhood Profile
New Town
Suits and shopping bags rule the streets of New Town, until after dark when strappy dresses come out to play. This is the city’s central business district with its smaller offices, clothes boutiques, and many of the city’s flashiest restaurants and ritziest clubs. The architecture along roads like George Street helps give it a swank and formal feel: it’s a planned Georgian development of regal townhouses, geometric squares, and self-important statues. But it’s also a very wanderable neighborhood, with a healthy bustle at almost any time of day and fine people-watching in places like St Andrew's Square which fills with picnickers around lunch. You’ll also find a series of cheerful basement bistros on Hanover Street, while dark Rose Street has something of the feel of an undiscovered back alley and is chock-full of characterful pubs and small independent shops.
