Appaling
I have visited countless places and stayed in many hotels and B&Bs however I have never seen anything as bad as Edinburgh Thistle. Yes, great location, cheaper than many other hotels in the area but it comes at a cost of ruining peace of your mind. Not worth it. They did not clean our room, they did not give us a cooked breakfast and they refused to give us a refund. We arrived at our room to discover that the bed linen was not changed, the pilows had yellowish stains on them and there were dust pieces in the bed. I was embarrassed to tell the receptionist as she was extremely friendly. She insisted that the room was cleaned and blamed the washing machine for not washing the linens properly. The next day we received no room service. I made a complaint to another friendly receptionist who apologized and said he will make sure that they clean our tomorrow. Unfortunately, they never cleaned the room during our stay except for one day. The first morning they refused to give us cooked breakfast saying that we should have ordered it a night before (no one told us). We agreed, ordered breakfast for the next 3 mornings and had breakfast elsewhere. The next day we did get breakfast. And that was it. The following morning we were told that they didn't have enough food in the kitchen to give us a cooked breakfast. When I asked for a refund they said they will give me a 15% discount on our next stay. The offer was a bit daft what guarantee we would have. This hotel is a bad joke.

Very happy stay
Very happy with the hotel, room was spotless and quiet the staff were lovely and it was great value for money and only a 10 minutes walk to the Main Street which has everything you need. Will definitely be staying here again.

Excellent location.
A lovely, unique Georgian hotel. Excellent location, in a quiet location, yet a short walk away from princes street, waverley station and the castle. Extremely friendly, helpful staff. The continental breakfast was limited. Staff are happy to prepare you a cooked breakfast at an extra cost, reasonably priced. Would definitely be back again.

Very good 8.0
Not too impressed but comfortable
Attic room with 78 stairs too top, very hard work. Bathroom scruffy with rust on shower tray, not particularly a good look! Window wouldn't stay open. Blind would close but had to roll it back up as no string to pull it! Bed was comfortable. Overall could do with an overhaul and general tidy up

Edinburgh at Christmas
Thistle hotel was lovely to stay in, staff friendly & very helpful. They took time to ask if they could be of any help etc, ordering taxis and advising on bus routes. Continental breakfast covered all our needs, more than adequate. Recommend this hotel.
