“Lovely hotel in excellent location!”
Reviewed February 17, 2014 via mobile

Just back from a weekend staying in the Fraser Suites in Edinburgh. Have to say this is a beautiful hotel in an excellent location- situated in the old town it is just five minutes walk from the Castle and Optical Illusions, as well as handy for shopping, bars and restaurants. The room itself was lovely, nice decor and a brilliant shower! Lovely toiletries provided also. There was a fridge, microwave and cutlery etc as well as tea coffee making facilities. As we did not eat here I cannot comment on the food but a nicer hotel in a more convenient location I think would be hard to find!

My wife and I booked a last minute stay here while on business travel to the UK. The hotel is centrally located near the castle, old town, and shopping. The staff was very helpful during our staff and shared recommendations, offers of help, and just friendly discussion. We enjoyed the morning breakfast. However, the evening dinner was very poor - we wanted something convenient, but I would recommend other places before eating here again. And finally, they seemed pricey. I would likely look elsewhere for a return trip to Edinburgh.

Thank you for your feedback after your stay with us. Delighted to hear that the staff impressed. Our in house restaurant has undergone some changes since your stay with us, a new menu has been launched and the décor modified. I am sure if you visited us again you would see significant changes and enjoy the home made dishes we now serve.

Stayed at the Fraser suites again after enjoying our stay there a couple of years ago. What can I say, staff are very polite, friendly & helpful, rooms comfortable & clean. Location Central, just off the Royal Mile so convenient for exploring Edinburgh.

Just returned tonight from a one night stay at Fraser Suites. We travelled in a party of eight and we were all equally impressed. Centrally situated and certainly value for money. We have stayed in higher rated hotels with prices to match that have been no better. Contemporary boutique style, it has a quiet, relaxed feel, and staff were a pleasure. Special mention must go to both Gary and Shay on reception, a credit to the hotel and both certainly deserve recognition for their help and their friendliness, and with that, made our stay all the more enjoyable. We will return again.

Thank you.

Room Tip: For a quieter room avoid those on street above reception.

Absolutely beautiful hotel - ideally situated! Could not have picked a better location for what we wanted. All staff were friendly and helpful. Stayed in a junior suite and it was the perfect size for a couple with a kitchenette, small sitting room, lovely bedroom (linen and decor was beautiful) and a gorgeous shower. Only complaint is that there was an unsightly bracket on the wall in the bedroom - there was obviously a television there previously.

Beautiful hotel, friendly staff and great nights sleep. Will definitely be returning again.

For our second 24 hour stay in Edinburgh, we chose the Fraser Suites as we wanted to visit Edinburgh Castle and it is very conveniently located, only being a 5 minute walk away. We booked a junior suite and I must say that it was very compact but comfortable and clean. I was a bit disappointed with the condition of the quilts, which were a dirty grey colour and some suspect looking pillows (please replace). The linen however, was very clean and the bathroom was spotless, with some very nice complimentary shower gel, etc.

We weren't told that the hotel was undergoing works and we were woken up at 8am by workmen right outside our window, with their music playing and having a very jolly conversation studded with expletives. They were hammering new lead or something on the roof. Had to get up for breakfast anyway, which is served until 10am. Today, it wasn't being served in the restaurant as it was being decorated, so we went into a temporary room, where the poor waitress had to keep going outside and back to the kitchen to get the food.

Breakfast was pretty poor, I'm sorry to say. The croissants were like bullets and on the cooked breakfast, I had a fried egg, half a field mushroom, a potato cake, which looked like it had been inflated with air, and just over half a slice of just cooked bacon. I ate the egg!

On the plus side, we had a very good rate.

We welcome all feedback and thank you for taking the time to post your review.
Since you stay all duvets and pillows have been replaced as part of our continuous improvement program to ensure guest experience is at it's best.
I am sorry that breakfast was not satisfactory, I have passed on your comments to the F&B Manager who has subsequently received and revised the breakfast offering which I am glad to say has been received very well.
I hope we have the chance to welcome you back again to Fraser Suites Edinburgh.

The Fraser Suites is a good hotel right in the middle of the popular High street. The hotel had just been remodeled and shows very nicely. We did have a problem with parking because when we arrived by car(rented) we were told that we could park right outside the hotel. However 15 minutes later I went out and found a $68 parking ticker on my rented car. I was upset over this but the hotel made up for it by upgrading our room the second night and comping our dinner. So good for them and i would grade the staff FIVE stars!
So I only mention this to warn you not to park your car in front of the hotel. Actually you do not need a car at all. We parked it in the garage and it stayed there the three days.

Lovely review, thank you so much for taking the time to feedback on your experience. We are deeply sorry your were misinformed regarding parking, being located in the old town of Edinburgh within in a World Heritage site we do not have any parking in the property. You can park outside but for a limited time and it requires a pre paid ticket.
I hope it did not spoil our stay too much and that you enjoyed your visit to Edinburgh regardless.
