It's really clean, in a fantastic old Georgian house, great wi-fi and a lovely breakfast cooked to order. Our room was right at the top - large room with a large comfortable bed. Bit of noise from cars driving over cobbles at night but didn't disturb me and I'm a light sleeper. Views over the Firth as well. The ensuite...

Thank you for your review and glad you enjoyed your stay. Most of our rooms enjoy a good view - either of the garden at the back or over the river Forth from top floor at front. All rooms have heavy curtains and also still have original wooden shutters.

This is a nice small hotel with a good location. It's a quiet place, always tidy and nice. Room number 2 is in front of the street with a nice view and shared bathroom. The breakfast and the service received are both very good.

I live just outside Edinburgh so it's very unusual that I spend the night in town, usually because the price of hotels are prohibitive, with a concert and a couple of drinks wanted I found the Terrace on line and decided to give it a go. A few things I look for in a hotel, location, cleanliness, friendly staff, a...

We booked the hotel as it was near to the Playhouse and we weren't disappointed. The staff were very friendly and nothing was too much trouble. The whole hotel was immaculate with lots of original features and the breakfast was cooked to perfection.

We chose this hotel because it was inexpensive, not far from the railway station and within walking distance of all the Edinburgh sights, shops and important attractions. It's a family hotel, with a nice, slightly old-fashioned, atmosphere. The rooms are small, and they don't all have en-suite facilities, so you need to make sure of that if it's important to...

sorry we made a mistake with your booking. it very rarely happens but we hope you were satisfied with the full refund. I take full responsibility for allocating you basic rooms instead of ensuite. most of our rooms are ensuite and if you should care to come again - the views over the river Forth from top floor are good...

I've been staying at the Terrace Hotel for 4 days in March. It was the first time I was visiting Edinburgh and I was very pleased with the position of the Hotel, which allowed me to see all the principal attractions of the city by walking to them. The Hotel is only 15 minutes walk from the City Centre, therefore...

glad you enjoyed your stay. we are just 400 metres along from Leith walk with its cinemas restaurants and shopping including John Lewis. In the other direction we are 10 minutes walk from Holyrood palace and park and Parliament and the beginning of the 'Royal Mile'.

My wife and I stayed here for 2 nights whilst she was working in the city. Lovely little hotel in a gorgeous building ruined by a very frosty service from start to finish.

Staying in Broughton & Calton

Neighborhood Profile
Broughton & Calton
Lying where grandiose New Town townhouses give way to malls and utilitarian housing, Broughton and Calton have long been transitional neighborhoods with a mixed identity. It’s here that Edinburgh’s gay village found a home in the 1980s. But gay culture is anything but overt along bustling epicenter Broughton Street; even if polished pubs, hip bistros, smart delis and art galleries all speak of affluent good taste. The top of Leith Walk is more ragged. This major thoroughfare boasts a famously gritty gay club, as well as a strip of good Indian restaurants. Regal Georgian and Victorian townhouses preside over largely deserted streets in Calton, where only the occasional restaurant or hotel brings much life. Even so, a steady trickle of idlers and picnickers pass by to climb Calton Hill for its wide-open lawns, wonderful city views, and curious monuments – an Athenian-style temple among them.
