Iconic overnight stay with bonus cinema
A lovely Monday night treat at the Scotsman. Being Scottish, I’ve always wanted to stay in this iconic building and it did not disappoint. Friendly reception staff and all staff we met were pleasant and helpful. Our room was very comfortable and beautifully appointed. We did not get a view but overlooked one of the amazing lanes that intertwine the city. We booked into the new picture house and had a lovely 2 course dinner before heading down the stairs to watch Downton abbey in the beautiful cinema. Sat in the front row and put our feet up. Bar was open throughout for refreshments. We did not have breakfast but had a wonderful peaceful sleep. Thank you for an amazing night away.

Well worth staying
Beautiful room and bathroom with lovely treats - marshmallows, whisky drams and macaroons. Excellent housekeeping service who quickly delivered our pillow choices and some conditioner as there wasn't any in the bathroom.

Amazing stay at the Scotsman Hotel
Absolutely fabulous stay late June 2019. Room amazing. Staff very friendly, helpful and knowledgeable. Ideally situated in centre of Edinburgh.

Mid week trip to Edinburgh
There were one or two issues in the room such as the taps very difficult and almost impossible to turn off. The room itself was a little sad. Also also there was no protective cover on what looked like a sensor on the bathroom ceiling.
