of TripAdvisor Travelers recommend this hotel
I have seen this hotel on visits before, and we always wanted to stay there. In May, we had a "split trip." A few days in Edinburgh, a trip to Inveness and back. We couldn't get a reservation for both stays, so we stayed at Radisson Blu and The Scotsman on the way back. Unbelievably elegant old world charm. The staff was incredible, the room was huge with a great sound system and tv. Every comfort imaginable...heated towel racks, thick robes. Wonderful spa and terrific facial. Perfect location.
"Lovely for afternoon tea"
We were not staying at the hotel but enjoyed a very nice afternoon tea with champagne here. They gave you savoury and sweet selection. It was delicious and very filling. Afternoon tea is £19 and £25 with glass of prosseco or £29 which a glass of champagne. Very reasonable.
I wanted a special hotel for my visit with my son. He had been to Uni in Edinburgh, and I had worked there. We knew the Scotsman as a newspaper building and we're exited to stay there as a hotel. Staff were friendly; hotel was clean; and beds were comfortable. Large room; good breakfast; free wi-fi, and good, central location. The pool was clean, but I would have appreciated more lighting in the area, but I suppose they are aiming for a calm and quiet atmosphere in the spa and pool area. We ate in the hotel dining room one night: the food was good, but not hearty portions.
"Brilliant location "
Great hotel and about 10 minutes walk from pretty much everything. We stayed in a king size room and it was pretty large with decent size bathroom. One weird point is that the bed was quite short. So if you are 6 foot plus make sure you check you fit !
Perfect location for the Waverley Train Station, it is directly across Market street. Just ring the bell at the door. Very nice, comfortable hotel, and easy walking on the Royal Mile. Good breakfast buffet.
