Breathtaking”

We booked the newly refurbished Penthouse Suite, as a special treat. From the moment the concierge, Barry, opened the door entry, for us (we entered by lower ground, @ train station), showed us to & gave a tour, of the suite, we were spoiled. We enjoyed a meal in the Grand Café, where the staff were also professional & friendly. The meal was just, as we'd ordered. A group of friends joined us in the room, for drinks, we were brought ice refills & lots of glasses. Reception staff couldn't have been more helpful. The accommodation & facilities are luxurious, stylish & comfortable. The dramatic setting is 2nd to none. Breakfast was all we could ask for & served 'til 1000, which is ideal, on breaks. Only slight gripe was that the shower wasn't hot, but the bath was fine. We're just about to book again for his birthday. Highly recommend.

Queen suite with view”

Absolutely superb hotel, best I've stayed in the UK. Great location right next to Waverley train station. Lift access to the reception from back entrance. Kindly took our bags as we were early to check in and went and enjoyed the city. Stunning room once we did check in. Room 614 I think! Described on here as queen suite + a view. Corner room. Huge room, big comfy bed, large TV, modern bathroom and a lovely quirky circle booth in the corner. Amazing views on both sides. Got drinks to the room, came quickly and was surprised upon leaving that they were very reasonably priced. Had breakfast the next morning, great selection of cooked breakfast including crispy bacon, lovely hot chocolate too. Upon checking out again asked if our bags could be held, was not a problem, staff more than happy to help. Collected later that day. Don't normally review places but can't recommend The Scotsman enough. And for what we paid for that room + breakfast it was a bargain.

2nd Stay at the Scotsman”

This was the second time I had stayed at the hotel in the last 5 months and it was as fabulous as the first time. We had a suite this time on the 6th Floor, with this room we had complementary drams of Whiskey, Water, Biscuits and the use of Nespresso Coffee Machine. The weekend we visited Edinburgh was the weekend of the Storm. Although the travel up was fantastic with lovely blue skies albeit very cold by the end of the day the winds were starting to increase. The room was immaculate with extra quilts, and Robes and Slippers which were used. After our meal out we returned to the room and could hear the wild weather outside. The following day I realised that we were unable to travel home by train due to the line being closed. I then contacted reception in order to book another room for the evening. The staff were so accommodating, booking us in for Breakfast (which was amazing) and also booking us into the Grand Cafe for a late lunch. Everything about this hotel is amazing and I would recommend it. I cant wait to return.

Fantastic Stay at The Scotsman Hotel”

The Scotsman is perhaps one of the best hotels I've ever stayed at. The room was luxurious, clean, spacious and the bed was very comfortable. I couldn't have asked for a better room. The staff were friendly and helpful, especially the receptionists and Ivor who gave me some useful directions. I ordered room service twice, once in the late evening and once for breakfast. Both were quick, delicious and great value. I would highly recommend The Scotsman Hotel and can't wait to return.

Great location and beautiful room!”

This was my seventh time going to Edinburgh in a mini break and this is definitely the best hotel I’ve stayed in. The room was beautiful and the bed massive and so comfortable. It’s a great location set between the old and new town. Having GHD straightener and hairdryer was a great bonus to have in the room to save on packing space. The shower was pure luxury. We had a view over the bridge and Waverley station which was lovely at night time.

Wonderful hospitality ”

This hotel was a true highlight as a midpoint of a UK roadtrip. The rooms were beautifully designed and comfortable, with thoughtful amenities, and sparkling clean. The real highlight was the hospitality from the staff. They were so helpful in helping us to book tours when our previous bookings had been cancelled and went over and above what I’d expect from a hotel when it came to ensuring the stay was as comfortable as it could be.

We got a great price but even if we had paid higher, this hotel is so lovely it is really hard to beat. We only stayed one night so booked a standard room, but this turned out to be very large and spacious, huge TV and a sofa. Facilities were excellent, plentiful breakfast in the morning, free newspaper delivered. The Grand Cafe/Bar was just gorgeous and lovely food. Staff were great, very pleasant to be around.

Comfortable stay”

Stayed in mid September and enjoyed our stay. The room was a good size, very clean with a comfortable bed and lovely shower. What I noticed most about the room was how quiet it was during the night. There was no traffic noise which may relate to where the room was located and no sound proofing issues from adjoining rooms. Breakfast offered a very good choice though I did found the cooked breakfast a bit heavy and slightly greasy. We also booked afternoon tea and were disappointed it was in the Grand Cafe as it was on subsequent days but was instead in the Hide lounge which didn't have the same ambiance and my wife was disappointed tje Proseco was warm. The staff were all.llvelt and very helpful so apart from a little nit picking, we really enjoyed our stay and would recommend to others. Location is perfect.

Absolutely beautiful hotel! Stunning decor and loved the staircase. We had a deluxe suite which was spacious and spotless. The bed was comfy. The bathroom was large too. There was free scotch on arrival and daily bottled water and a newspaper. The little touches make it feel even more special. There was no view sadly as we were on the 2nd floor which is practically underground with Edinburgh being so hilly. The grand cafe is stunning and they have a pianist playing. I felt like I’d stepped back in time. Check in was quick and easy and the staff member was helpful and friendly. The location was superb. It was in the middle of the new and old town.

A very lovely experience. Rooms are beautiful and every need thought of, from hair straighteners to a daily paper. Room was really very clean - and after it had been ransacked by our toddler on night one, that is really saying something so thank you! large comfortable bed, beautiful decor and spacious. Our booking requests for a baby cot and bath in the bathroom were accommodated - thank you! Restaurant staff at breakfast for us were stand out, and a credit to the hotel. They couldn’t do enough for our young son to ensure he was fed and happy, and were so friendly! Reception area and lift was a little grubby and receptionist was a little stern on check out, but these are the only very minor negatives. The cafe is worth a visit. Again, lovely staff who provided crayons and milk for our son so we could enjoy our drinks! This was our first trip anywhere with our baby, we were nervous travellers and this hotel made us able to relax, so we will be back! Thank you Scotsman team for your care and attention to detail in room!

Great Hotel ”

Excellent location, staff were helpful and friendly. Rooms were great, only criticism would be that the bar closed at 12:00 for residence. Didn't understand that at all!
