We really liked the location! It was away from the center of town which made it so much more relaxing! The bus stop right across the street in front of hotel. There were numerous bus lines available that took you to anywhere in the city w/very little confusion! (Plus the Scots really help you when you need it!) We really enjoyed the English breakfast! (Try the Black pudding! It tastes like a black bean veggie paddie!) The owner and his staff were very accommodating and nice!!
On arrival staff very warming and attentive . Modern hotel , loved our room with castle view . Excellent hotel and staff fantastic .Breakfast was amazing with beautiful views . This hotel is overall extremely inviting and made our stay extra special .
I had an excellent stay in The Carlton hotel. It is perfectly located for sightseeing with a plethora of restaurants right outside the front door. Our room was perfect for us, with a beautiful view across the city. I couldn't fault it at all and I am looking forward to my return!
Everyone says hello; from the receptionists (Shay), to the cleaner (Marcel), to the other guests. Staff appear to enjoy their job and take pride in their work. From the first appearance (elegance) to the minor details (designer soap and posh umbrellas), our time at the hotel was excellent. Very happy hotel.
I've been to Edinburgh on numerous occasions but The Scotsman is a new one for me. The site of the former print offices of the newspaper of the same name it is on nine floors with the entrance on North Bridge on the fourth, a spa in the former printing rooms on the lower floors (including a stainless steel pool) and even a penthouse suite. The marble and oak paneling has been retained where possible especially in reception and the stunning breakfast room/restaurant. The location is perfect, being 5 minutes from either the Royal Mile or Princes Street without the tourist hustle and bustle of actually being on either. Waverley station is right outside the ground floor exit albeit four floors below Reception.
We were greeted on arrival by the Concierge who took care of our bags and directed us to check in with a welcoming yet businesslike informality that immediately put us at ease. Indeed all of the staff we encountered had the same easy charm. As we were heading off, the concierge offered some recommendations for restaurants and even offered to book tickets online for the Castle so that we could avoid any queues.
Our standard room was of a reasonable size, although it had a view of rooftops (which is not as awful as it might be in other cities), it was very well laid out with good storage and a decent sized bathroom (including a bath and two showers). There was even a hatch which let into a cupboard so that shoes could be returned cleaned or breakfast/newspapers delivered
We came from London and our apartment was so small. The friendly staff showed us to our room and we couldn't believe the size. So comfortable and clean. Can highly recommend the helpful staff and the location is so central to all the action. Thank you stay edinburgh. Your the best
I stayed with my mum and sister for a girls weekend in the City. A great location 5 mins walk to the bottom of princes street. A gorgeous period property which had wonderful design and style. Very comfortable and the owner was so helpful and accomodating. Lovely touches like providing milk for tea and washing up liquid in the kitchen. Under floor heating in the bathroom was brilliant. Would definately stay there again. We stayed in the Eton suite.
