A Brel with a bit of character

Posted 27-Apr-2015
Nice location, quiet and surrounded by lovely buildings. Easy walking from princess street. Didn't have an evening meal so can't comment. Recommend it without question.

Relaxing boutique hotel in heart of Edinburgh

Posted 22-Apr-2015
Pros: We found the staff at the hotel to be very friendly and approachable. Overall, it's a very relaxing place to be in a busy city centre.
Cons: The breakfast selection was good and I liked the fact that it is cooked to order but the continental buffet could offer more choice.
Location: Located on Drumsheugh Gardens, the hotel is 5/10 minutes walk from Princes Street and a little further to the Royal Mile, Holyrood and the Castle.
Having previously stayed at the Bonham on one of their Edinburgh Zoo packages, we had no qualms about returning for our second trip to Edinburgh. The hotel is a lovely, quiet and relaxing boutique hotel in the heart of Edinburgh and close to many of the sights and attractions which you might want to see whilst you're in the city. We arrived at around 12:30pm, knowing that we were early for check-in and we might not be able to access the room straight away. Luckily, our room was ready and the check-in was effortless and the reception staff very friendly and welcoming. The room was a Standard room although, coming from London, the space was incredible. Having stayed in two different rooms, it's clear to see that the hotel tries its best to make the rooms as comfortable as possible. We were on the 1st floor (Room 108) and the space was very generous. The room had a lovely large bay window, letting in plenty of light and a nice view too. The bed was very comfortable and quite soft and the overall cleanliness was very good. During our stay, we enjoyed afternoon tea in the hotel's bar (The Consulting Room) and I felt it good value for money for what you get. It was a lovely start to the stay. We enjoyed breakfast each morning (well cooked, although the buffet was limited compared with larger hotels) and we also ate lunch in the restaurant one day. The set menu at lunch and dinner is the same but you pay less at lunchtime!

Traditional hotel great location :-)

Posted 05-Apr-2015
The Bonham hotel was a great place to stay, spacious, comfortable and the staff were super. As it's an old building it's a bit like a maze to find rooms/ reception/ how to escape. The room was pleasant, clean and huge, with all the facilities you'dyou'd ecpect. Free parking definitely a bonus in city centre, the location was ideal for us as it's a short stroll in to town. The only downside was all the dark stair carpets, we kept feeling like we were going to lose our footing on the many flights of stairs!

Lovely hotel let down by restuarant service

Posted 09-Mar-2015
Good sized room and nice fresh decor in a grand old building. However our stay was let down by disinterested Staff at breakfast and limited buffet selection which was not replenished. First thing left at our table was the bill even before the food came which didn't set a good impression. Moreover we were then ignored by numerous staff wandering about seemingly busy but apparently not doing much so we had to then ask for toast which every other table had received. When we eventually got the cooked breakfast, the food was nice but overpriced at £8 with only one slice of bacon on the plate. Check in/out was also slow and didn't feel like staff were really interested in much. Would only stay again if price was right.
