We recently stayed at the links hotel in Edinburgh, myself and my family were impressed with the overall hotel. The rooms were large and spacious, very clean and had all the needed amenities. The hotel has a restaurant and bar attached which had a fantastic atmosphere and also very convenient! The offer 20% student discount off food and drink too!...

We had booked here for a night in Edinburgh with my mum and sister. We were going to a show in the playhouse. The reservations staff were so helpful and gave us a very reasonable rate! I was a bit concerned before I arrived in case we were too far out but the location was great, we could walk to...

Wow! Five stars, thank you! I'm thrilled you enjoyed your stay with us and that you were able to take advantage of our location, it really doesn't feel as though we are as close to the city centre as we are. The best of both worlds! I hope you can visit us again soon. Bet wishes, Amy

Edinburgh is not a big city and this hotel is located within easy walking distance of the city centre, tourist attractions, theatres, restaurants and shops. Best of all it provides easy access to the beautiful Meadows and Links. Staff were all welcoming and helpful and the room was amazing (room 102). We would definitely stay there again.

Had a two night stay at The Links hotel and although it was a little pricey it was definitely worth the money. Everything about this hotel screams quality, from the rooms to the ample breakfast. The staff were always friendly and full of useful information about the local area. Access to the hotel was also particularly impressive, off the train...

We stayed here 28th August for the Edinbrugh tattoo. I emailed staff about a few general enquiries and they were quick to respond. The hotel has a lovely beer garden overlooking a park with a cycle track. The hotel offered a place to store luggage as we arrived too early for check in. The reception team are fantastic. They gave...

Stayed here Thursday 25th August- was a little pricey but we expected that due to time of year- and also had been advised at time of booking it was expensive due to the festival. We chose to stay here as we stayed here when we first met over 15 years ago- and loved the place then. We arrived late at...

Thanks for your review! It's lovely to hear that our hotel is so special to you! Since first receiving your review we have checked the mattress in your room and found you to be quite correct.

Thanks very much for taking the time to leave us a review! Having spoken with the staff member who served you last night it seems that there was a misunderstanding. Our staff member initially thought that you were asking for a full replacement pint, taking into consideration the wasp she decided to charge you for a half pint instead of...

On arrival one of the rooms appeared not to be booked, having proof of booking we were told it was a glitch in the computer system. After a bit we were taken to a room which was small but adequate on the surface. Arriving back after midnight to find curtains didn't close as they were partly detached from the rail....

We spent one night here and were ready too late to have breakfast. The room was clean and quiet. Check in and out was smooth. The location was very convenient because we were visiting friends in the area. The "family" room was a king size bed for the adults and a double pull out sofa bed for the kids. The...
