Had a wonderful 1 night's stay at this beautiful hotel. The staff were excellent, efficient and friendly. The room was amazing and the food was delicious. Could not fault this hotel. So Close to Edinburgh but in such a quiet location. Would not hesitate to return there and would highly recommend this hotel to anyone staying in Edinburgh.

My wife and I celebrated our 40th birthday here in May with 50 of or friends and family. The hotel were so helpful throughout and the food for dinner was exceptional. No one in out party had a negative thing to say. Very much exceeded our expectations and helped make a great weekend for us. Room excellent too. Brill.

We stayed at the Bonham Hotel at the start and at the end of a Rick Steves 10-day tour of Scotland. Both the rooms we had were large. The hotel identifies itself as a "Luxury Boutique Hotel". I might classify it as a very nice business hotel. All of the hotel's staff are very polished. The hotel is located near...

We have just returned from Edinburgh for a fabulous weekend, watching the BBC concert and Tom Jones, as always the Scottish hospitality was second to none. We had read so many good reviews about this hotel so it was all the more disappointing when we checked in, the hotel itself is obviously every "foodies" paradise, they have concentrated heavily on...

Beautiful quiet hotel close to Princes Street but tucked enough away. The staff at the front desk were very helpful and from around the world. They had excellent restaurant recommendations. The breakfasts are amazing and very hearty.

I've stayed in the Bonham a few times for work, after a colleague recommended it as an alternative to the other hotels we usually use - I never looked back!! For the price you get so much more than elsewhere. From the moment you walk in you feel relaxed, the decor is lovely and the staff polite and efficient. Rooms...

We booked for the Queens Garden Party in Jul 14. The room was nice, the staff were very efficient and friendly, and the location for the town centre is very good. The room was a little too warm being on the top floor, however this did not detract from the beautiful 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.
