A clean and comfortable guesthouse in an amazing location - 5 minute walk to the main Princes Street and 20 minutes to the Castle. We stayed on the very top floor with the shared bathroom facilities, but never had any problems with this. The bathroom was large, clean and we never had to wait for it. The staff were so...

The Townhouse is lovely - bright, warm and lovely staff. Very friendly and accommodating and really central. It's just off George Street which had amazing Christmas lights at the time of my stay. Princes Street is a couple of minutes away, and the views of the castle from the street are lovely. I'd definitely book again.

Fiance and I stayed at Edinburgh Townhouse last weekend as we were in Edinburgh for a wedding. All staff were really polite, helpful and friendly. The rooms were clean and good value for money we felt. Location was absolutely perfect, right in the city centre, walking distance to pretty much everything! Would definitely recommend a stay here :)

Plenty of tea and coffee, which was restocked each day. The lady on reception was very helpful and knowledgable. We flew from London and took a taxi to hotel but...

Excellent price for a central location. Comfortable room which was clean with comfortable beds. We had a triple room which shared a bathroom with the other room on the top floor.

Thank you for your recent review. We are pleased that you enjoyed your stay with us and thank you for alerting us on Trip advisor of the bathroom light bulb. As you are aware this bathroom is only sensor operated, therefore it is not always that we would be aware of the bulb needing replaced. We have now sorted this....

Staying in New Town

Neighbourhood Profile
New Town
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.
