We stayed at The Bonham 6 years ago so wondered if things would still be as good. I'm pleased to say that the same high standards are evident. We had a lovely room on the 3rd floor with fantastic views across the city to Leith. Breakfast was exceptional- the buffet had so much variety, including fresh fruit salad, meats, cheese,...

We joined the Bonham Hotel for their special Hogmanay set menu. I can't but give them 5/5 because everything was wonderful. Food, service, ambiance and value was excellent! The Bonham has a lovely relaxed atmosphere but staff remain attentive. They are warm, friendly and couldn't do enough for us. What impressed me most was the chef preparing my sister a...

My friend and I had the gin fizz afternoon tea, we booked for 2pm and arrived at 1:45pm only to be initially reprimanded for being early...? Well excuse me! The cocktail was nice and superb coffee. The room has nice decor and furnishings but very cold for a snowy, icy day. The finger sandwiches were fresh and tasty but the...

The hotel has very comfortable rooms and is very quiet - always a bonus in a large city. It’s location is great for all the attractions and restaurants. We did not eat in the restaurant as it looked a bit impersonal - although we did have breakfast there, which was good but things like a Cappuccino coffee were extra, which...

We've stayed here about 3 or 4 times over the last few years and have never been disappointed. We've stayed in the smallest rooms right up to the suites and they are all really comfortable.

Short stay. Had a lovely evening meal in the restaurant. Biggest and best chips ever! The breakfast was also excellent. The room itself was nothing special. Very small and would have been much cosier if there had been curtains in the room rather than just a blind. Bathroom was quite dated. In saying that it is a very stylish hotel...

Staying in West End

Neighbourhood Profile
West End
Prevailing winds meant that most cities that grew in industrial Britain had their most desirable neighbourhoods to the west – upwind of factory fumes. Edinburgh was no exception, with its wealthiest citizens settling in its West End and leaving behind grand Georgian townhouses, private gardens and genteel crescents. These backstreets remain as dignified and sleepy as ever, and most of the action here lies along the district’s busy main roads. Lothian Road connects to southern Edinburgh and harbors a vague entertainment district: three theatres and the city’s main indie cinema. All attract a select crowd, the sort who appreciate the Saturday Edinburgh’s Farmers’ Market around the corner. The West End’s other great thoroughfare, Shandwick Place, is dominated by trams trundling out to the suburbs and airport, and shoppers picking up last-minute items before hopping aboard.
