Everything was perfect from the location to the staff (concierge, Paddy, in particular) to the comfort of the room. We were on our honeymoon and were immediately greeted with champagne and chocolates. We had breakfast every morning in the brasserie, which was delicious, and the high tea was the best we've ever had. They have an outstanding gluten free menu available at every meal, and it is just as delicious as the standard menu. We loved everything about the hotel and recommend it to anyone and everyone. Doubt we'll ever stay anywhere else in Edinburgh but The Scotsman again.
Hotel in a great area near the Royal Mile. Hotel staff very efficient friendly and terrific to deal with. Hotel itself is a little tired and could do with some updating and "sprucing" up. Overall a good experience with a fair price. It did exactly what we wanted it to do.
I cannot express enough what a great stay this was. The hotel staff was amazing (great greeting, dinner recommendation, conversation). Stayed on a business trip, but would come back for a family holiday. The pool looked great. The location was great - lots of things to do in the area.
We thoroughly enjoyed our weekend at the well positioned Edinburgh hotel. Lovely room very quiet and spacious. The breakfast was extremely good lots of variety to suits all tastes. Staff were friendly and attentive. We also enjoyed cocktails in the fresh and funky bar.
With narrow, winding streets and alleys, this mediaeval district is a contrast to New Town. Acting as the main artery, the Royal Mile begins at Edinburgh Castle and ends at the Palace of Holyroodhouse, the Royal Family’s residence. Many tourist attractions are found in Old Town including the National Galleries, Royal Museum, and St. Giles Cathedral.
