Great value hotel
A lovely hotel,friendly staff and lovely continental breakfast.

Very good !
Very good. The hotel was clean and in a very good location. The room (mine was a single person room) was absolutely fine (nice room and bathroom). Several nice looking restaurants were within 5 minutes walk (Dundas Street). I went to the 'Olive Branch'. That was very good. Edinburgh is still an absolutely great place.

Good hotel, nice and central but just enough away from the main drag that you can get peace and quiet too. I visit the city regularly and hadn't previously stayed here but will definitely consider it for my future visits.

We had a lovely stay at Regent House once the heating was sorted by Management, the only downside was the Wi-fi, it is useless and waiting for the £250 deposit to be paid back into my bank account.

great location

Fair 4.0
The tiniest bedroom ever -- the ensuite was bigger! The duvet on the single bed was also very small with no overhang. so could not keep it in place. No comfort at all. The staff spoke NO english at all and so could not communicate.

A very pleasant stay
Friendly & helpful staff. The room was clean however a tad small and a little dated. But the stay was very pleasant. Would stay again.

short break
Friendly staff made this a pleasant break for family. Having travelled overnight and arrived at hotel 3 hours early, we were allowed to check in and have our room straight away which allowed more time for sightseeing. Continental breakfast was what was offered and that's what we got. The description of the hotel was very accurate as was it amenities which made our choice of hotel a correct one. I say to all those moaners out there, if you expect the world then book a 5 star. This was a very good 3 star hotel that we will rebook in with in the future and recommending to family and friends.
