"Enjoyed our stay"
Travelled by train to Waverley Station. The Scotsman was a 3 minute walk leaving from the Market St exit. Check in has two desks, was friendly and quick. Our cases were taken to the room on the 6th floor over looking the old town and we were given a small map of the city. Our room was spacious with no complaints - nice bathroom & shower and very comfy bed. We stayed for 2 nights and enjoyed the spa facilities and my wife really enjoyed a facial and pedicure. The hotel is well located for the old town and a 5 minute walk over North Bridge takes you onto Princes St and onto George St for lots of shopping, bars and restaurants. We really enjoyed our stay and had no complaints. All staff were very friendly. Would stay again - hopefully soon.
"Not a 5 star exsperience "
Excellent location, but would not stay here again. This was a nice hotel but not the wow factor. The worst part for me was the staff. Poor knowledge of the area, the concierge should be able to recommend a destination or at least attempt to help with your query. But I was met with the disappointment of ask someone in the street. Their was no attempt to open doors and help with getting in and out of the hotel. Compared with the balmoral hotel this hotel is what under par, the rooms were small but comfortable overall this is not some where I would stay again. As for the breakfast at £17 ahead don't waste your money. Again poor service, wished I had tried s local cafe. Take my advice skip the breakfast but the evening meal was very nice.
"Beautiful Hotel, superb staff, great facilities, awesome location"
I visited here on Feb 14th and I had asked for a room with a nice view, and they delivered :) The room was spacious, had surround sound, even sound in the bathroom at the flick of a switch, perfect for shower time and a sing song lol There was a separate antique style bath, overlooking North Bridge, large TV, really everything you need for a comfortable stay. The location is the best I could have hoped for - it is perfectly central for seeing all the local sights, and I decided not to drive from Manchester and go the train and the hotel is a 2 minute stroll from the station with a lift from the back of the hotel straight to the lobby (floor 4) I found this out after walking the long way around - typical hey haha My only negatives would be the prices of the chocos etc in the mini bar, c'mon £1.50 for a snickers' I was going to have BinB but it was listed at £17, not too bad but then in the small print an additional £5 tray fee' Why not just be honest and say its £22 for BinB instead of trying to hide the real cost' At £160 per night are you not taking enough of your guests without trying to rip us off' Anyway that said, that's a management thing to fix, so cannot blame the staff for that. The pool was nice and clean too :) I ended on a positive...

"Great hotel... "
Just stayed 2 relaxing nights at the Scotsman hotel,, only a few minutes from the train station . Made welcome as soon as we walked into the hotel..Our rooms on the 8th floor had fantastic views of Edinburgh (room 809 has the best view). All the staff were very polite and professional,,the bar had a good and relaxing atmosphere.. Breakfast was great, the staff were very polite and attentive..wide choice on the breakfast menu.. the hotel has a fantastic spa & gym free to guests..well worth a visit after a day shopping and sightseeing.. overall we had a fantastic time and we'll certainly be back..
