Fabulous 8.6 From 45 reviews

Good 6.0
Some good/ some bad
The position of the hotel with lots of road works made the room very noisy. We understand the hotel cannot influence this but it would have been nice to be informed. If the hotel had double glazing this would have reduced the noise level alot. The bathroom door was an issue. It did not close and required a cushion against it to msintain privacy when using the loo. Not ideal. The bed was comfortable and the room pleasantly decorated.

Excellent. Small boutique hotel with wine bar at ground floor. Well appointed and furnished room. Service was excellent and great location. Lots of restaurants / bars nearby. There is no lift and at least two flights of stairs to the bedrooms which might be challenging for the less mobile but otherwise would highly recommend.

My stay at The Winehouse
Great location, beautiful room. Would perfect full breakfast not continental, went to Spoons over the road. Only gripe was that there are no lifts. 70 stairs and 2 landings to get to our room.

Very small hotel wth several rooms, but quality rooms. Good Bar area and fantastic selection of wines and very friendly, helpful staff. Fantastic location and very close to Princess St and The Royal Mile etc, and in the City Centre.

Pleasant hotel. Nice interior and the room was very nicely set out, with plenty of space and touches to make it something special. Friendly staff and helpful when we needed things which was good. However there were a few things that disappointed us during our stay. The breakfast options were not really much of an option- its either a croissant or cheese/ham with a hot drink- didn't really do the job! Plus for a hotel with only 3 rooms- we didn't get any towels on the second day nor were the basics of the room cleaned or changed- glasses/ bins/ cups. I understand the bed is every other day but still after a long day out and about when we finally got back to the room we had to chase them for housekeeping. Dusting also could be improved- sounds picky but the room rate isn't exactly cheap! Very handy location- next to the tram stop to the airport and only a short walk to the main city. Just a few bits that would make it perfect really.

Weekend break
Hotel location is just outside of centre which suits us and a QPark car park nearby. Only 4 rooms but the quality of the furnishing and fittings is exceptional. Staff very welcoming and bar is a pleasant environment to have a fine wine in. Rooms are on the 2nd / 3rd floor so you need to be able to walk a few stairs. Not cheap but neither are the Italian designer items in the room, it looks and feels good.. Breakfast is Continental with an Italian twist which may not be to everyone's taste. However the best recommendation is would I not go back or would I go back ...........................I would GO back
