        • Couple
          9.6

          Great atmosphere, location, beautiful rooms and facilities and a truly sumptuous and luxurious environment to stay in!

        • Single
          7.8

          The staff are great. Location is good and the swimming pool is very nice.

          The reception is actually very tricky to find. If you're arriving from the station you can end up doing a marathon trek to just to fine the entrance. It would probably be useful to explain to customers with very clear directions. The breakfast is very nice but very overpriced for what it is. Although I can afford £18.00 it seemed extreme so I had breakfast elsewhere for the remaining days. There was a painting hanging out of its frame in my room above my bed (room 609 i think) which I think is a really poor attention to detail issue. The Hotel is an amazing building and could be marketed as a boutique hotel but lots of small touches let it down and the rooms look a bit tired. The staff were lovely though.

        • Older travelers

          The Scotsman was exceptional. We have stayed at a wide range of accomodation in Edinburgh and the Scotsman's service and facilities are the most outstanding. Staff have an impressive capacity to care for and serve each guest.

        • Older travelers
          10.0

          The welcome we got from all staff made us feel as if we were a pleasure to deal with and nothing was too much trouble for them. My wife and I knew the Scotsman when it was a newspaper so we were curious to see how it had been adapted to a hotel and we were not disappointed.We now live in England and have already recommended to our friends that the Scotsman is the place to stay. We will be back.

        • Family with children
          10.0

          the staff were very friendly and accomidating to every need,spa was sheer luxury and hotel room had every comfort available.

          10.0

          The quality of the room and hotel exceeded our expectations. Staff were extremely helpful and respectful. With the additional luxury of a sauna in the room it just completed the experience of staying at The Scotsman Hotel. We would recommend it to anyone and look forward to going back ourselves in the near future.

          I liked its location . staff were good

          Didn,t like the bar, the guiness was very poor..didn,t like being put into an inadequate room,, although we were given a more comfortable room after telling staff. We bouigh tea and sandwiches in restaurent which were of poor standard..

        • Older travelers
          10.0

          From our initial arrival to leaving the staff were friendly,helpful and accommodating. The facilities are more than adequate and very comfortable. The location is excellent which is an extra bonus!

        • Couple
          10.0

          Great hotel, quick stay but would stay again. We were lucky to have had such a good deal and the room and staff were great. We plan to stay again!

        • Couple
          7.0

          The staff's friendliness.

          The smell in the corridors and they were overheated. The dining room is also overheated and can become a little smelly.

        • Couple
          9.6

          The service of the staff - they were very polite and helpful.

          The only thing I can say that was a negative is that I was not made aware that check out was 11am. I think this is quite eary - even 12pm is better?

        • Couple
          10.0

          Overall staying at the Scotsman was a good and pleasant experience

          Room was very warm and it was difficult to cool it down with thermostat or by opening windows

        • Group of friends
          10.0

          When reserving trough Booked.net, I asked for twin rooms. However the hotel was not aware of this fact, and had one twin and one double.

        • Older travelers
          10.0

          Everything about it is great, but it's the little touches that really make it special - eg the privacy hatch, the weather forecast delivered daily with the paper and the bottled water delivered every night!
