“Scots Baronial with comfort”
Reviewed April 20, 2011

Love it! I wanted somewhere convenient for the university and was fed up of trying to find a good (and affordable) B&B that had vacancies.

Mammoth breakfast - can be worked of climbing all the stairs!

Only a couple of downs - reception is in a different building so that when you arrive you have to find your way about the Halls of Residence complex and 'wardrobe' in top floor rooms built in under the eaves hasn't enough height to hang anything other than shirts (I would have sacrificed the huge bathroom to have space for a wardrobe)

this is a good place if you have reason to be on the university grounds. However, the rooms are small and clean. nothing special. very dorm like and ordinary. it is not a regular hotel. they have a very small reception area that is staffed by students. they are very helpful and do answer quesitons but if you need/want a conceirge--this is not the place. there is not even a clock in the hotel room. No pens, paper, etc. there was a desk and a place to make coffee/tea. it is a 10 minute walk into downtown, so that is easy...however, there is nothing much close to the hotel. breakfast was very good and the staff was very nice. eat the blue cheese at breakfast. delicious.

The hotel was chosen from the reviews on this site. It was either a mistakes or we just had bad luck.
The hotel is a bit outside city center, and not very convenient located, and apparently not easy to find, even for a cap driver.
The room was far from clean. Spiders web and dust were easy to find.
The toilet had the height for a child, almost at the floor.
The bed was however good and there was no noise what so ever during the night.
After we had got rid of our luggage, we would have likes to ask some staff how to get to city center etc. There were absolut no one in sight, so we had to find out ourselves.
One of the mornings, we had to wait 15 minutes to get into the breakfast room.......not impressive. The staff in the breakfast room were however smiling and polite.
All in all I wouldn´t stay there another time i Edinburgh, it´s just to far from most.

This is a very comfortable "hotel" but does not have a bar and lacks atmosphere. Breakfast is excellent but on our first morning we had to wait 25 mins outside the dining room as it was much too small for the numbers staying. if you want to leave luggage it has to be left at the central reception area which is a walk up a steep hill (in the rain!). Staff are very pleasant. We asked for a view of the crags and didn't get it - I suspect there are few rooms which actually have one as we've not had any sort of view the two times we've stayed. Good location.

Good location - just a short bus ride to the city centre. Check in staff efficient and helpful. Bedroom was exactly as shown on the web-site. Bedroom and ensuite exceptionally clean. Had the best two nights sleep in ages. Breakfast excellent - nothing too much trouble for the staff. Would definitely recommend Salisbury Green and would certainly stay here again!

Just far enough outside the centre to walk into and with the added bonus of being on the doorstep of Arthur's seat. 20 minute walk to the city with a great and reasonably cheap bus service. Car stayed parked for the 3 days and able to enjoy a wee pint or 2 of 70 shilling. Woul certainly stay again.
