“Great stay in a charming place.”
Reviewed July 18, 2011

Although we only stayed for a night we were very impressed by the Royal Scots Club. The staff were professional & friendly & the room was huge & comfortably 'old fashioned'. Four poster bed & en suite bathroom spotlessly clean.

Superb breakfast in a lovely dining room overlooking Queen St Gardens - couldn't ask for a better location. Highly recommeded - we'll be back.

Room Tip: Not the height of luxury but superbly 'grand'. Ours was a tad 'tired' but spotless.

We had a very enjoyable stay here, we got the last rooms and although it is slightly old fashioned, that only adds to its charm. The rooms are en suite which is a necessity, I believe these days. The staff were friendly and courteous and the breakfast was excellent. It is very handy for all the attractions of the city and I would thoroughly recommend it to all.

First stay at club at a very reasonable rate comared to equivalent Edinburgh centre accommodation. It was also the venue for a conference event I was attending the next day. I did not eat in or use the bar in the evening, so not sure how busy they get. Room was very comfortable and quiet, even for facing the street. Breakfast was the best I have had for a long while, and so nice to be served something fresh rather than scrape congealed pre cooked food off a self service buffet. There is an inevitable decor of military patriotism that has to be accepted, but adds to the sense of comfort and luxury. If anyone found this offensive it would not be the place for them.
Less succesful as a conference venue due to the warren of steps and rather unco-ordinated buffet.

This is one of those hotels you discover in a City and you really want to keep quiet about. Other reviews say it all, good but not flashy rooms, nice welcoming staff, very nice atmosphere, excellent food, hearty breakfast and great location.

We would definitely stay here again, just don't want it to get to popular and hard to get into.

We loved our stay at the Royal Scots Club. The hotel was well-appointed, and the rooms spacious. The dining room served a full Scottish breakfast that nourished us for hours. We had no complaints and will stay again.

Stayed 2 nights b&b and had a free upgrade to a double room which was very spacious and clean. I was on top floor and there was a view towards the coast across roof tops from the huge sash window. Bed was extremely comfortable, temperature just right, very low noise levels. Breakfast was very well done - particularly liked the loch fyne kippers. Friendly reception staff, plenty of 'atmosphere' and only a short hop to the city centre
