The hotel is nice, we had one of the smaller rooms towards the back that was still reasonably sized and with nice furniture and coloring of the walls etc, the room was really ok. The backyard is very calm and you have a view towards trees and a bit open space, at least in the second floor it was an...

I cannot say anything at all about this hotel only its online booking system. Basically don't use it! I booked a room yesterday (Saturday 12 October 2013) using the online system. When I opened my e-mails today I found one from the hotel saying they were sorry I had cancelled my reservation. I sent an e-mail saying I had not...

Thank you for your review. Please accept our most sincere apologies for the fact that the last room we had available for your required dates was sold a mere two minutes before you placed your booking. Unfortunately as the reservations were made at almost exactly the same time our channel management system did not have sufficient notice to update availability....

The hotel is on a quiet residential street but not convenient to Old Town and major tourist sites. Unless you like walking over a mile to reach center of town and the trip back at night is uphill might consider a different hotel. We ended up taking taxis which were 7£...not alot but factor into cost. Room was fine with...

Me & my partner visit several hotels on a monthly basis in various parts of Scotland. We decided to go to Edinburgh, enjoy a nice meal, few drinks & most of all stay in a stunning, clean, comfortable & friendly hotel. Hotels are a big luxury to us and like to spend a little more than average on it. We...

Just back from a short stay at The Salisbury Hotel. Good location with buses into the city centre just a short walk. The room we were allocated was a good size with comfortable bed and had been nicely decorated. However a new toilet roll holder in the bathroom would not go amiss. Also the waste bin in the bathroom needed...

Friendly staff. We had some issues regarding room fittings and noise, the Front Office Manager, Adam, was very quick and efficient in rectifying the issues. The reason we have given The Sailisbury Hotel, Edinburgh an average rating is because the interior of the hotel and the rooms could do with a bit of regular maintenance. Paint is peeling from the...

I stayed at The Salisbury Hotel whilst attending a conference at the McIntyre Centre, and it was very convenient, a few minutes from the centre of Edinburgh and very close to the university. Small hotel with friendly and helpful staff. Rooms are comfortable. Good wifi access. Good gym and the Commonwealth pool are just over the road. The restaurant is...
