“Great location!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 22, 2013

Excellent location for exploring all of Edinburgh. The rooms are a little dated, but comfortable. The only disappointment was the lack of lunch and dinner options (and no room service) at the restaurant.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a view. And upgrade to one of the bigger rooms if you are traveling with someone...

I am sorry you stayed with us juts before the re-launch of The Broadsheet Bistro which now serves a full Scottish breakfast buffet, lunch and dinner. We also offer delicious afternoon tea and a Light Bite menu to suite all tastes.
I hope we get the chance to see you again soon where you can sample the Scottish fayre in our restaurant first hand

Fraser Suites is strategically located in the heart of the old town. A short walk to most of the attractions including some great restaurants. A park is located near by as is the train station. The reception staff were very polite and helpful, as were the restaurant staff. Room was good but not great. Bed was comfortable and well presented on arrival. The cooling air conditioner in the room did not appear to work, and as a result the room was always warm, which is good if you were staying here in winter, but in summer it lead to a warm nights sleep. Breakfast buffet was light and satisfying but not overly filling. The wifi is free, and speed was good. My only minor complaint is that I was having to constantly sign in via their internal login every 30 - 45 minutes. The fitness centre was good and had basic essential equipment in good working condition. There is a guest laundry which I wish I knew about before sending our clothes away to be washed *sigh*. Very good hotel in a great location!

Thank you for the lovely review. We are thrilled that you enjoyed your stay. Our breakfast buffet has since been improved, we offer a sumptuous variety of both hot and cold items which is available daily on the Broadsheet Bistro.
I am sorry the internet kept asking you to sign back in, we are working with our providers to ensure guests remain online longer.
We look forward to welcoming you again soon

My wife and I stayed for a few days in June 2013 and the quality of the hotel really added to the trip. The room was beautiful and very clean. The location which is just off the royal mile was perfect for getting around the city but was not noisy. Finally the staff were excellent. They were all polite and very friendly and the team on the front desk especially a girl called shay really went the extra mile when it came to offering advise about the city, phoning around restaurants to help with dinner reservations and even sorted out some parcel tape when my suit bag broke. We would definitely come back.

We stayed 3 nights at the Fraser Suites in May. Our room was tastefully decorated, clean and comfortable - modern amenities with old world charm. We had requested a room with a view and Room 615 delivered. The location could not be more perfect.

Room Tip: For a good view, request a high floor room.

My husband and our recent college graduate daughter had an excellent two night stay from Friday to Sunday - May 30th to June 2nd in their junior suite which had an adequate pull out sofa bed in the separate living room area. We were very comfortable in this clean and modernly appointed suite that had an extraordinarily comfortable double bed and beautiful bathroom with what we all agreed was one of the best showers ever. The hotel itself is charming, warm and nicely decorated with soothing colors. Staff were very friendly, helpful and responsive to our needs. The location is simply ideal - right in the middle of the Royal Mile, but yet discretely located off a beautiful street just a half block away from the magnificent St. Giles Cathedral. The end of the street over looks the city below and has extremly steep steps to take you down to the heart of the modern part of Edinburgh. The free wi fi connection was excellent. We would return without hesitation to repeat our wonderful experience and recommend this place to anyone who wants a large bed and breakfast feel but the spaciousness of a small hotel.

Room Tip: Ask for a room away from the main street to have more privacy and less noise at night.

The only window only opened the height of the room card, no air conditioning... We were so uncomfortable it was hard to sleep, as the open window allowed in all the street noise with the steamy air.
When we asked for traditional Scottish cuisine restaurant recommendations the Front Desk clerk said, There is NO such thing as traditional Scottish food!! Oh my gosh...
The King Suite booked we find out does not exist. And their Junior Suite is appropriately named, as it was small.
Little things: 1) only one bar of soap that had to be shuttled between the sink and the shower.; 2) housekeeping used the shower mat/floor rug to clean the shower and left it dripping wet for us to have to use and step on the next day...gah! 3) a small, portable fan was their solution for no a/c. And it is only the 8th of June. Can you imagine how miserable these rooms will be in July or August?
My recommendation is book the Radisson just one block away!

Thank you for your feedback.
I am sorry that you were uncomfortable during your stay. We are restricted to how far the windows open for Health and Safety reasons. We do have fan towers in every apartment and can provide additional cooling upon request.
We are located just off the Royal Mile in Scotland's capital. There is an abundance of restaurants who all serve Scottish fayre. We have also just re-launched our in house restaurant The Broadsheet Bistro which also serves several Scottish dishes. For you not to have been given this information is very alarming indeed.
In every room we provide a welcome pack of guest amenities, soap, shampoo, conditioner and shower gel to name but a few. Guests who require extra provisions can call 24hr reception at any time .
We have several room categories to suit all tastes, however we do not and have never sold a "King" room on any of our online agents or direct.
We apologise that these issues compromised the enjoyment of your trip. We hope we have the chance to redeem ourselves and change your perception in the near future.
