Excellent lovation

Posted 04-Jan-2016
Purchased a two night stay as a Christmas gift for my daughter and partner. They thoroughly enjoyed their stay. Apparently the staff were more than helpful and their room was extremely comfortable. The hotel was in a very good location and within walking distance to central Edingburgh.

Lots of hidden costs not disclosed at booking

Posted 01-Jan-2016
Hotel being renovated, workmen on scaffolds outside window at 9 am. Food overpriced and not upto 4* standard; beautiful decor but overall experience equal to a much cheaper hotel and had a lot of hidden costs only discovered upon arrival and too late to change booking as paid up front. Disappointing visit to say the least.

Nicest Hotel in Scotland

Posted 22-Dec-2015
Stayed at the Bonham for 4 nights during the British Ecological Society Annual Meeting. The hotel was recommended by a globe trotting friend from Australia who has very high standards. The Bonham didn't disappoint, indeed it excelled itself. Comfortable, tastefully decorated rooms, mine had a great view across the city. The best breakfast in Edinburgh and an excellent bar. Easy to walk to different parts of the city and the staff were always courteous and helpful. Can't wait to go back to Edinburgh and stay there again.

Building Work

Posted 30-Nov-2015
Beautiful, clean hotel with friendly staff. The most important thing at a hotel however is to get a good night's sleep which I didn't get. The room was cold and damp, you could hear every noise that happened in the corridor and when I finally got to sleep I was woken up by hammering from builders stood on the scaffolding directly outside my window.

Friendly and relaxed hotel with style

Posted 10-Nov-2015
This is a really relaxing hotel, close to the city centre and the galleries. The restaurant is worth a visit and it feels typical Edinburgh New Town, stylish but relaxed and without fuss.

Not for us

Posted 04-Nov-2015 on Hotels
Stayed 3 nights at this hotel, the hotel was having major building works to the front of the property which were not motioned anywhere on their website. So there was no 'lovely Edinburgh backdrop' as they say on their website, only a builder whistling and drilling directly outside our window at 8:30 in the morning! On the last morning of our stay we were informed that our card details had been stolen from the hotel's reception so had to cancel our cards which meant accessing cash was a pain for our journey home. The room was clean in parts but very dusty in others. The staff were nice, but the stay wasn't at all good for us. We won't be staying there again.

One night in Edinburgh in a lovely hotel

Posted 27-Oct-2015 on Hotels
A quick one night stopover in Edinburgh and this time we chose to stay in the Bonham. The public areas are the really highlight, you really do feel like you are in a quality hotel. Our room was a decent size, but there is no air-con, so temperature control might be a problem at some points during the year. Our bed was huge and very comfortable, and we heard no noise from our fellow guests, so we had a lovely nights sleep. We used the small car park at the rear of the hotel and its cost £15 per 24 hours.

City Centre is just around the corner

Posted 26-Oct-2015
Excellent hotel! The only minor disappointment was parking, which is NOT free as indicated - I paid £15 for 24 hours. It's not that I think the charge is unreasonable - just don't call it 'Free' parking when it isn't!
