                  The staff were very courteous and helpful. The proximity to all the main attractions was excellent.

                  The problem with parking could be an issue for some people,but it would not prevent us from returning.

                  Food very good, service good. But the bar was only attended by staff when you needed them and closed on a Sunday

                  No lift and limited bar facilities.

                • Older travelers
                  8.2

                  The staff were excellent, could not have been more friendly or helpful.

                  Perhaps a little bit quiet for some people, but fine for us.

                  Friendly; excellent room; good meals.

                  Nothing - very happy with my stay.

                • Couple
                  9.2

                  The rooms was very comfortable and the hotel staff was very helpful and cheerful. We arrived at 7:30am in the morning. Although the check-in time was 2pm, was provided a room around 11:30am. Meanwhile, was provided with a complementary breakfast.

                  the corridor outside our room was being painted so that was a bit inconvenient. The breakfast spread was the same everyday.

                  I loved the room 10. The view out over the garden. I loved the proximity to everything, the staff were very friendly. We were at my daughter's Graduation, and it was a great treat to be there. The breakfast was excellent.It is a wonderful building and beautiful interior.

                  I would have liked to have gone on e mail, but I did'nt think that it was easy, because it was always busy. I am not sure I liked the computer situation.

                  The Royal Scots Club is central in Edinburgh, it is very comfortable with well appointed rooms excellent, helpful staff, made the stay most enjoyable.

                  Being a historic place is appealing to me, its good location and after re-furbishment, its modern interior made it feel smart and sheek.

                  very nice room.

                  Had to go ask where bar/ dining room was.

                  The hotel's staff is excellent.

                  The room is small. I did not have space enough for my luggage

                  Everything about the hotel was excellent - location, meals, staff, service - which made my city-break stay a memorable experience and I shall most definitely return with my husband for a longer break.

                  Extremely luxury and big room, decorated classically. All the facilities were well placed and easy for use. The most importing thing is the price is low for this grade of room. Must go!!
