I recently had the opportunity to visit Edinburgh for the first time and after much research, decided to stay at The Scotsman. The hotel proved to be one of the nicest parts of my trip.
From the welcome of the concierge Ivan to the gracious staff at check-in, the staff in The North Bridge Brasserie, and the overall team in general, I can't recall when I've encountered a staff as warm and friendly as here.
The hotel itself is a beautiful building and will appeal to anyone who has an interest in architecture. The hotel is also immaculately clean. The room I had was large, with a very comfortable bed and a large bathroom. There were various tartan designs throughout the hotel, including my room, but done very tasteful and subtle, which gave it a very elegant ambiance - warm and comfortable.
The food in the North Bridge brasserie was very good, and the service there as gracious as the hotel.
This is one of the finest hotels I've ever stayed in and one that I would love to experience again. Thanks for a marvelous stay!
