a warm greeting and a welcoming smile immediately on entering the hotel, reception professional and again very friendly informing us of hotel facilities, our luggage taken to a pristine clean room, I think the logistics of preparing and serving all hotel guests in the breakfast lounge could be a nightmare but i found it to be run like a tight ship the staff very much aware of our needs ,finally i found it necessary to have access to my luggage which was being stored until ready to leave and found again the porters very accommodating, nothing was a trouble to them.
Came to stay for 3 nights from York, found the hotel staff welcoming and helpful, very nice having someone take our heavy bags up to our room whilst we had a drink.
Our room was fantastic and clean, had everything we could possibly want. It had a well appointed and clean bathroom which was a pleasure to use. Comfortable bed, but please, please, get rid of those extra cushions that just take up room!
Had room service on the last day that arrived precisely when it was supposed to, overall a very enjoyable stay in a very wonderful city.
"Very central, only ten minutes to Princes Street."
We took a mini break in Edinburgh and this hotel, situated in a quiet street a short walk from the city centre was ideal. Tour buses, town buses were only five minutes away. Edinburgh Castle could be reached on foot and there were plenty of restaurants and bars in the near vicinity too. The hotel has been converted from several houses, therefore the route to our room was a little confusing at first, but, apart from that, excellent. The room was extremely spacious, as was the bathroom, excellent shower, and breakfast, classed as continental, was plentiful. We will definitely return again.

Had a couple of days in Edinburgh for some photography projects and this hotel was ideal. 5 min walk from the main high street easy to find, even tram stops right outside so you could come straight from airport to entrance in about 30 minutes. Staff were very good. Cant fault the facilities and had a slap up breakfast on site. Great value also. All in all cracking find. Recommended highly.

We liked our first three nights at the Royal British Hotel that we returned there two weeks later for the end of our stay! The hotel is directly across from Waverly train station, the tram and bus routes. It is a quick walk to the Royal Mile. Although the hotel itself shows it's age, our small room had been updated and had everything we needed. One real plus was the entire staff! All were kind, helpful and friendly. We will stay here again on our next visit!
We picked this for our trip to Edinburgh Fringe in August. The price was quite high for student accommodation but typical for the time of year. I found it easy to find compared to other reviewers. We were in a studio (17), this was great with flat screen, wi-fi in room, cooker, fridge and en-suite. The only issue was with noise from other people checking in or out early in the morning. The accommodation was close to everything, the Royal Mile being 5m walk away and suited our needs perfectly.
