If you are looking for something different close to all the best sights of Edinburgh - then look no further than The Glasshouse. Sadly, we were only there for one night but we will definitely return for a longer stay. From the moment you enter the door you feel welcomed and special. We had upgraded ourselves to an executive room and it was worth every penny. Situated at the rear of the hotel it was peaceful and even had it's own balcony but the rain stopped us making full use of that! We ate in the Brasserie restaurant and although it wasn't the cheapest meal we have eaten, it was remarkably good value for a city centre hotel. The quality, flavours and portion size of the food were excellent and the service staff were courteous without being over attentive which can be annoying. Well done Glasshouse - you have made our top ten!

Stayed for the night of the Scottish Food and Drinks Awards. Really nice quirky 5 star hotel!!! Wouldn't hesitate to return. Rooms stunning, and breakfast superb! Wished I could have had longer in this hotel. Might come back before Christmas'
Maybe it was just because we had been traveling all day, but the instant we walked into our room, we both looked at each other and said, "let's just move in forever." The staff was exceptionally kind and helpful and made us feel right at home. The bed, oh my, the bed. Possibly the best sleep I've ever had. The bathroom was gigantic and luxurious. As excited as I was to be exploring a new city, part of me never wanted to leave our room. The room was impeccably cleaned, the AC worked wonderfully, there was even a small fan we could use. The staff answered every need and desire we had above and beyond. Breakfast was amazing - so many options, well cooked, and staff was again wonderful. Throughout the whole hotel they had classical music playing and it was instantly calming and felt like an escape from the hustle outside. My only complaint would be that it's a little difficult to find your way around and we ended up lugging our suitcases up and down stairs because we couldn't find the other elevators (but it was a workout and reminder we need to pack lighter!!). We will for sure be back to move in :)
This is a very beautiful and stylish hotel, with kind and friendly staff. However, I feel a few things fall short of its five star status. The food we ordered via room service was bland and the cooked breakfast was similarly lacking. Some of the service was also a bit muddled. I have heard such glowing reviews about this place, but unfortunately our experience was a little deflating.
Upon first sight, this hotel looks quite 'compact'.......however, it is like a Tardis, very spacious and surprising!! Fabulous roof garden for those sunnier days!! Rooms very comfortable, lovely bathrooms and amenities. Only used restaurant for breakfast as fully booked for dinner!! Good service. Bar comfy. Well located opposite York Place tram stop from airport. Cushty!!!! Easy walk to all sights, Calton Hill directly behind hotel. All in all, a very good hotel!
