Fab short stay in Edinburgh

Posted 21-Jun-2015
Such a lovely hotel in a great area, really easy to walk to the main shopping street and the castle. Only 10-15 minutes but the hotel is nestled along a beautiful street. Only stayed for one night- would have loved to stay for two. Fab service and it was really quite a luxury.

One night in Edinburg

Posted 01-Jun-2015
Pros: Professional staff - knowledgeable, helpful and hard working.
Cons: Spruce up the rooms & public areas - rugs, paint, cleanliness. Offer a little more luxury in the rooms. More attentive at breakfast.
Location: A few blocks from Prince's Street and public transport, but quiet. We walked to the Botanical Gardens which was a pleasant walk.
The hotel is interesting and in a very nice neighborhood. It's off the beaten track, but within walking distance of most of the sights and public transportation. Many of the rooms are far from the lift, so if that's an issue for you, make sure to ask for one close by. The staff is very professional, helpful and hard working. I would say, however, that they are understaffed and are overly reliant on the current staff to pick up the slack. The are clearly other cost cutting efforts at play here. The rugs are worn, the paint is old, the window shade was torn and stained. They do not offer hair conditioner or hand cream, which is pretty standard even at a Holiday Inn. The lighting is dim and insufficient. The grout around the bathtub was extensively stained by mold. We had the continental breakfast buffet which was adequate, and while mostly based on cold cereals, there was also fruit salad, yoghurt and cold cuts. Bread selection nonexistent, unless you specifically ask for toast from the kitchen. Fresh OJ in addition to other juices, but the tea wasn't very tasty. So if you can overlook the tired interior, appreciate a helpful staff and the price is right for you, this could be just fine. I was looking for more.

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!
