Stopped over to see the Xmas fair, the hotel was better than expected. Room was massive, clean and Breakfast was definitely worth getting out of bed for. Very well located, parking was not great but only 800yds away and free.Good drop-off and pick up, well worth the money :)

We booked the Lairg because we did not want to be right in the noisy centre of town. We were welcomed by the owner Rimus, who was very friendly and helpful getting us settled in. The room (No.10) was very spacious and spotlessly clean. Really comfortable bed! Breakfast was great and plenty of it and all the staff were happy...

I cannot praise this place high enough. The staff are amazing, nothing is too much problem, they also give advice and maps for local area, the rooms are spacious and clean. Breakfast is lush. For the price this is fantastic value! Location is good.

This was explained during check in at the lairg hotel where it was marked down in their book. When we went for breakfast we were asked what we wanted from their set...

This hotel is probably the nicest place I've ever stayed in a city. The staff are welcoming and professional. The room I stayed in (room 5) was absolutely charming with the convenience of a a modern bathroom and a beautifully furnished bedroom with antique furniture and all the usual facilities including hassle free wi-fi. Downstairs there is a lovely Victorian...

We stayed here for a week and it was awesome. The room was clean, quiet and very comfortable....the breakfasts were amazing, highly recommend the full Scottish breakfast,....location puts you close to the royal mile either by walking, by taxi or by bus. If you walk there its about 20-30 minutes. Would definitely stay there again!!!

The room was clean, tidy and a perfect size for a couple. The breakfast was good and the staff really polite and helpful. It's also located round the corner from Haymarket station which is handy. We also had an issue with the booking website where it had put our booking through twice. Initially we were charged a cancellation fee for...

We stayed for 3 nights at this hotel in early September. We were on the top floor with no lift.

The hotel seems to have a variety of room sizes. Looking around, some had large four-poster beds. Ours was a small, top-floor room with a tiny bathroom. On the other hand, it was clean and had big fluffy towels. The location; just two to three minutes walk from the Haymarket bus stops, the tram stop and the railway station, couldn't...

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.
