Good location, not great hotel.
Edinburgh is a beautiful city and the Townhouse was a great location to explore it from. That said, the hotel was extremely dated and strangely organised! The bathroom tap was not correctly affixed, and our request for an iron by email was not acted upon, and when we did obtain one from the receptionist (who was not working when initially asked, although was present at the desk!), it was not in a good state (items of clothing had been burnt onto the plate) so we did not attempt to use it in case it damaged our own clothes!

Was a mix up with getting access to the apartments but was sorted out really quickly. Room was nice and clean but bed was a bit uncomfortable.

Small but comfortable for one person. Brilliant stay for 2 nights. Received the check-in process by email and received a call too from the reception to make sure i understand the process. Very happy with the service.

Simply grand
Fantastic location, the royal mile is a 15 min walk, the room is basic but has everything you need. You won’t regret staying here 😄

Very good 8.0
Overall a pleasant room. I didn't see any staff because of my arrival time but there was nobody around when I left in the morning either. There are no breakfast facilities although they do offer a 15% discount at a nearby restaurant. This was an issue for me as the restaurant opens at 8.30am & I had to start a course at 9am so had to find somewhere open at 8am where I could eat

Perfect Location
We had a late check in due to a delayed flight, the check in instructions were clear and easily followed. Check out was a breeze! Perfect location!

Outstanding location, but very small and cramped
Outstanding Edinburgh central location. Quite clean and modern, but very small and cramped, and the walk up the stairs to the top floor is really difficult and strenuous with luggage.

The hotel reception closes at 7pm. People booking need to know this !!!
