“Another brilliant time at the Bonham”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 10, 2013

This was our second stay at this wonderful hotel and we again had a super faultless visit. Room was great, very peaceful and bed so comfy. Breakfast was yummy and checkout time at midday on a Sunday was just heavenly . We will definately be back. Great location and even greater hotel. Many thanks to all the staff.

I stayed here on Sunday night with my girlfriend for her Birthday and it was amazing. In fact probably the nicest room I've ever stayed in, with beautiful views over the city. She actually said the very same as soon as we got to our room. The hotel staff left chocolates and a message for her also which was a lovely touch. The room rate was very good and well worth it, and we also went for lunch in the restaurant which was also top class. The staff were excellent and the location is ideal. All in all a great experience and I'd rate it up there with the best stays I have enjoyed anywhere, in any city.

So there.

We stayed at the end of January 2013. The whole experience was perfect. Late check out and breakfast in bed!
The eggs benedict are quite simply exquisite.
We upgraded to a superior room with so much space and stunning views.
Can't fault it. Staff were very friendly and helpful.

We stayed here using an Itison voucher and I cannot recommend it highly enough. The staff were efficient, friendly and very helpful. Our room (mini-suite) was magnificent and I cannot tell you how much I enjoyed retiring to it after our superb dinner. We lit the gas fire, put on some music (using the i-pod dock in the room), settled down on the lovely squashy settees to generally relax, watch tv and chat.
The only thing I would say is that the bedroom was a bit draughty, even with the curtains closed, and due to the fact that the room was front facing there was a bit of traffic noise in the morning. Also, the decor was what can be most kindly described as citrus colours - which I did not think was entirely suitable - but it certainly wasn't enough to put me off in any way.
The hotel itself is well situated and within easy walking distance of Princes Street and the other bonus for Edinburgh is that it has a small private car park to the rear.
I loved my stay at The Bonham and it really considered it to have been a proper treat. We would have no hesitation in staying again.

Stayed for the weekend at The Bonham Hotel. Hotel easy to find, just a 10 minute walk from Haymarket Station. Check-in was very professional. The receptionist was very helpful and provided us with a map of Edinburgh.

We stayed in room 211 which was perfectly acceptable for our needs and had a nice view overlooking the north of the city. The furniture was a little tired in places (noticed our table had lots of chips/scratches in the varnish) and the floor didn't look like it had been vacuumed. If you are taking the stairs to your room - there are no signs in the main stairwell telling you which door to use. These are only minor niggles and would certainly not stop me from staying again.

We didn't eat at the hotel so can't comment on the food. The hotel is within walking distance to the city centre and takes around 10-15 minutes. A taxi from the centre of the city to the hotel cost us £6.00. The hotel also stored our bags for us free of charge after checkout. This was very helpful as we could enjoy the rest of the day in the city without carrying our bags around until we caught the train home.

The Bonham is a lovely little hotel and we would not hesitate in recommending it to others looking to stay in Edinburgh.

We stayed here recently for my birthday using an Itison voucher and I cant recommend it highly enough. The staff were friendly throughout and the room & food great. We had a front facing room with a bathroom and it was small but stylish (the bathroom was a bit dated/worn, but I understand they are in the middle of a renovation). We arrived with rose petals on the bed, chocolates and fizzy wine which was lovely and then went down for delicious 3 course dinner and had breakfast in bed the following day – all delicious. The only problem we had was the wine wasn’t cold so we asked for it to be chilled and to have it with dinner – but at dinner they couldn’t find a cold bottle. The manager smoothed it over wonderfully and even with this issue, I can’t fault the service. Overall the reception rooms, restaurant and bedrooms are all stylish and have a great atmosphere together with friendly & professional service makes this a great stay.
