Great little hotel close to Haymarket station and other bus stops. Very reasonable price for room which was furnished well and extremely comfortable. Breakfast was excellent with a choice of hot and cold (poached egg was spot on)! Staff were very friendly and helpful. They asked if we needed maps and gave great advice for nearby attractions and restaurants. Wifi...

Close to buses,tram and train station. Hated to leave. Good restaurants and alternate eating choices nearby. Clean room, comfortable beds. Offered to store our luggage the last day so we were free to enjoy the last day. We plan to stay there again on our next trip.

Spacious, comfortable room in a convenient location. High ceilings in the room, roomy bathroom with heated towel racks and a four poster bed made the stay here very nice. The included breakfast was freshly made and served in a sunny room. The train station is nearby as are the tram lines for access to all areas of Edinburgh. Dining options...

I’ve spent almost a week in the Lairg Hotel, and it was a pleasant stay. Conveniently located in the New Town not far from the Old Town and Dean Village it features old-fashioned comfort and charm. I was lucky to stay at a spacious room with vintage furniture and a garden view. The hotel staff were genuinely friendly, ready to...

This was the first time I had ever gone to Scotland, so I wanted to make sure I got the weekend trip fully packed with plenty of things to do that were near the hotel. The hotel is right near Haymarket (one of the main railway stations in Edinburgh). This was great as it meant we didn't have to walk...

I have booked a single room here for couple of days, but there were some issues with the booking. The owners sorted the problem out quickly and effectively that I am really grateful for. I would like to be back!

This is a typical Edinburgh Georgian townhouse hotel, no lifts, big rooms and good, if basic accommodation. Our room was just off the reception, and was a bit noisy at certain times but peaceful when you needed it to be ( bedtime) It smelt just divine, not sure what they use to clean or scent the rooms but it was...

Really nice hotel. Not the Ritz but quite adequate. It is only 10 or so minutes walk to Princes Street and the Royal Mile. Parking is a bit hit and miss. Breakfast is very good with an adequate selection. Really reasonable prices too.

We stayed at The Lairg, a gorgeous quaint hotel in the Haymarket area. We were delighted with our experience. We arrived very early and the lovely owner, very kindly booked us in upon arrival.Fantastic value. Breakfast was beautiful , and the hotel was spotless throughout. We look forward to returning to this gem. Thank you! Breda & Eoghan.

At first I wasn't sure if I'd like this hotel/b&b however upon being shown the room all my doubts disappeared. Room was clean, had a hairdryer that wasn't in the bathroom, several mirrors and a dressing table area. The room was much larger than we needed but decorated in a traditional fashion for the Georgian property. The room was a...

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.
