We stayed at the Frederick House hotel on 22nd July. Other than some complaints about the bed not being overly comfortable it was a lovely place to stay.
The reception staff were very pleasant and helpful. The hotel was clean and the rooms very spacious....More
You can't beat the location and price of the hotel. It is a short walk from the train station and two blocks from the central park area. There are numerous excellent restaurants nearby.
The room in which I stayed was a bit gross. The carpet...More

Location is excellent and the room was big. The room was dark dismal and bland with little natural light, bed was a standard double, dark purple aubergine feature wall with the rest of the walls a mustardy nicotine color, ceiling faded cream (needed repapering) carpet...More
The standard of the rooms is very good, but it really isn't a hotel - it's serviced rooms. Breakfast is served at the cafe across the road and was the worst I've ever had in living memory - bad enough having to cross a busy...More

Suits and shopping bags rule the streets of New Town, until after dark when strappy dresses come out to play. This is the city’s central business district with its smaller offices, clothes boutiques, and many of the city’s flashiest restaurants and ritziest clubs. The architecture along roads like George Street helps give it a swank and formal feel: it’s a planned Georgian development of regal townhouses, geometric
squares, and self-important statues. But it’s also a very wanderable neighbourhood, with a healthy bustle at almost any time of day and fine people-watching in places like St Andrew's Square which fills with picnickers around lunch. You’ll also find a series of cheerful basement bistros on Hanover Street, while dark Rose Street has something of the feel of an undiscovered back alley and is chock-full of characterful pubs and small independent shops.

I can't answer this. "Ensure" is a verb meaning to guarantee, e.g. "the management ensures that the phones work". You've used it here as an adjective, and I don't know what you mean. Do you mean secure? Insured... More
I can't answer this. "Ensure" is a verb meaning to guarantee, e.g. "the management ensures that the phones work". You've used it here as an adjective, and I don't know what you mean. Do you mean secure? Insured? Presumably the whole hotel is insured by the owner, but I don't think that will benefit a guest in any way. The rooms are reasonably secure in that they have keys (like all hotel rooms).
My basic feeling about this hotel is that it is quite overpriced for what it is (which is sort of a two-star hotel somehow awarded four stars), especially since there is no restaurant, no bar, no real lobby, and no charm. It is central, clean, inoffensive and has comfortable beds. The question is what you want to pay for that.
