Exceptional 10.0
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.

Good 6.0
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.

Scotsman Edinburgh such a great place to stay.
Staff friendly helpful. Accommodation was excellent. Breakfast choices good. Central to everything we wanted. Room was cleaned to high standard everyday. We had lovely experience and lots of lovely memories of Edinburgh.

Very good 8.0
Scotsman review
Was only told of optional early check in day before for a price. Check in was not greatly organised and it was mentioned that the room was an upgrade but we couldn’t see what the difference was. The man who showed us to the room was great and very professional. There was no decaffinated tea in the room but lots of coffee options (had to buy our own). Breakfast service was slow and appeared quite disorganised by serving toast very quick before we’d even had a chance to drink some fruit juice which meant it was cold when we wanted to eat it.
