Virginia
Reviewed 15 March 2016

Outstanding B&B with truly superb staff! Well maintained with a wonderful breakfast. Within easy walking distance to many restaurants and other attractions. Had a room on the 4th floor along the back of the building with an incredible view. Would highly recommend this B&B!

Took my parents away for the weekend and they are sometimes difficult to please when it comes to hotels, however this one really did manage to please. The building itself is beautiful and stunning, it's not quite the traditional hotel experience but I think that made it. The feel is very relaxed and it's almost as if you running the...

Reviewed 11 March 2016

So, I booked us into this hotel, on the back of numerous good reviews, and enthusiastic customers stating 'boutique hotel' etc. We booked in for three nights, aiming to see a lot of the sights in Edinburgh, and then have a little haven to come back to. Admittedly I did only book as a double room - I guess this...

Reviewed 11 March 2016

This was honestly one of the most beautiful hotels I've stayed in. The architecture outside and in the public areas inside are all stunning. The rooms themselves are rather more basic and modern, but I still liked mine. The welcoming staff at reception upgraded me for free on arrival as there was obviously a larger room available. There was a...

I found this lovely spot via Expedia and we loved it. Lovely building which is being well kept by the team there and good value for our 2 nights. Check in was easy and we had a great view of the castle. The room was smaller than I would like but other library and bar rooms are available to relax...

It's a lovely building and could be a really nice place. Unfortunately the shower didn't work properly during two nights and was never fixed. The staff at breakfast ignored us, which was odd as this has never happened before. I requested a couple of the services and each time I waited ages and then when I checked again they said...

We had the best weekend and this hotel really made it. Extremely quiet, fabulous staff who were so friendly and helpful, great location and lovely breakfast. We would recommend this hotel if you wanted to be close to the city centre but not near any noise.

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.
