Reasonably priced Hotel

Posted 13-Jun-2015
Nice hotel, lots of stairs no lift. Noise does travel up the central stairwell especially at pub closing time. We were on top floor and it was loud. Safe requires key obtained from front desk. Older building do not expect todays standards. Price was right short walk to Princess Street.

Lovely Georgian Townhouse in the heart of Edinburg

Posted 03-Jun-2015
Pros: This Georgian Townhouse was in excellent condition. Loved the fact they kept all the original features
Cons: easier way to get luggage downstairs!
Location: Just a wee bit out of the way for me - we had to take a taxi to th castle although we could have walked to Princess St and taken a tram.
The staff were very courteous and helpful. We were situated on the top floor - a long way up for a couple of tired ladies.... However the room was worth the climb. Very comfortable Twin beds!!! Well laid out and very clean. Enjoyed the continental breakfast The manager was quite interesting as he told us about the history of this hotel

Good value hotel.

Posted 10-Mar-2015
The hotel was close to city centre and Haymarket train/tram station. Given how much I payed for the Hotel it was well located and good value. On arrival I was warmly greeted by the receptionist and this held true to all the staff.

Weekend in Edinburgh

Posted 10-Mar-2015 on Hotels
Went to Edinburgh for the weekend, stayed here for 2 nights, very pleasant stay, the continental breakfast was more than enough to set us up for the day. About a 10/15 min walk to the city but easy enough to find and a pleasant walk in. Room was very clean and comfortable, cleaned and bed made while we were out for the second night we stayed. Hotel staff very friendly and helpful.

Thistle hotel, Edinburgh

Posted 25-Feb-2015 on Hotels
I booked the Thistle hotel for my mum, my daughter and myself as a present for my mum's birthday - she had never been to Edinburgh. The hotel was about 10 minute walk from one of the airport bus stops: West End. It was in easy walking distance of the main attractions and we even walked to the botanic gardens in the other direction. So, it was very well situated. The staff were very helpful and carried my mum's bag up to her room when we arrived as there is no lift and we were on the second floor. My mum experiences pain in her hips when climbing stairs but the one thing she would say about the stairs in this hotel is that the treads were very shallow and so less uncomfortable to climb than most stairs. We had the continental breakfast which was very filling. It was self serve and the following were on offer: fruit juice, cereals, yoghurts, pastries, toast, ham, hard boiled eggs and tea and coffee. We had a room with three single beds. It was a really large room with duvets and a top cover as the main bedding with extra blankets and pillows in the wardrobe if needed. Heating was by radiator which we were free to adjust to suit. Shampoo, shower gel and hand soap were all supplied. Plenty of tea, coffee etc and it was no problem to request more. No free Wi Fi but it was available at a charge of £10 for the duration of your stay. We were very satisfied and enjoyed our stay there.

our Scotish Hogmany

Posted 08-Jan-2015 on Hotels
The staff were excellent, friendly, cheerful and helpful. The room was draughty from the window. The electric rad did not work. The basin tap in the bathroom was loose. I understand from a member of staff that the rooms are being re furbished. We hope to return for the Tattoo later this year, if we do we will be back.
