Our room is down the hall through piles of laundry. Our room has no windows, and a dirty carpet. We have two skylights that can noisily open part way for ventilation, and to listen to the pigeons. We are leaving as soon as we can.

Upon arriving at the Royal Ettrick we were directed to one of the 'windowless' (how did that get through planning?) rooms described by others. I say directed - Duncan had clearly not undertaken any customer service training (or if he had he had failed to take anything on board) and we found ourselves - as medical professionals- adopting an approach...

Good location for Edinburgh Fringe. Local bus to city centre nearby. Rooms ideal for short stay. Hotel staff very courteous and friendly with helpful information about the locality. Expensive at this particular time of year due to the Fringe as are most places near Edinburgh centre. Breakfast was good but could offer more fresh fruit like fruit cocktail daily.All areas... More

Hotel set in a quiet area of Edinburgh, general areas of the hotel are good, bar area nice, and the outside area on a sunny evening is nice. I booked a single room, so expected it to be small, but it was smaller than I thought, although the room was clean and tidy. Full breakfast was very nice, I didn't... More

Staff were very friendly and helpful, I was visiting as part of a large group and they couldn't have been more accommodating. The food was delicious and very reasonably priced. I would definitely stay here again.

I was in a top floor room. There was Plaster falling off the ceiling, crack in the wash hand basin, damp in the bathroom and around the window, shower tray panel broken and a crack in the wash hand basin. The carpets aren't the cleanest either. I didn't feel I got value for money for the price of the stay.... More
