Visited jenners restaurant for a late breakfast. We didn't want much; tea and perhaps a toasted teacake or something. We saw some "Selkirk" cakes on offer so asked what they were. Woman behind counter said they were over on the table for us to have a look at. My wife went to get 2 but brought back the wrong thing... More

At the moment Jenners (House of Fraser) has some really good bargains on - we got a good bag full of Xmas presents. It is a blooming nightmare to navigate round. I'm glad they've maintained the integrity of the building, but it's like a video game where you have to use certain lifts in a certain order to gain entry... More

The restaurant was poor, food was cold, didn't bother to get a drink as the queue was massive and the food would have been even colder than it was, then me and my dad was rudely accused of jumping the queue! The store itself is also awkward to get around and the toilets were too far to walk from the... More

shop is ok and enjoyed a couple of drinks in the restaurant - difficult to change floors using lifts as the lifts do not cover all floors ie you need to change lifts depending what floor you want to go to

Fantastic retail emporium. Set over many levels with stairwells and corridors and lifts, like moving stairwells in a Harry Potter, you're never quite sure where you will arrive! Huge selection of ladies and mens fashions, shoes, handbags, cosmetics, furniture and bedding, an art gallery, crafts and fabulous restaurant and coffee dock. Truly something for everyone.

Lots of levels, difficult to navigate, needs toilets of various levels, not solely on the fourth or fifth floor. Enjoyed the experience of navigating and going from room to room.

Situated on Prince's Street, and just a stone's throw from Waverley Station, Jenner's is a fantastic department store with something for everyone. There are many different floors with plenty to see and do. Including a huge make up department. The Christmas tree and lights are a must see if you are there during the festive season.

Every time we visit Edinburgh we go in to Jenner's - there are so few stores of this type and quality about. I am surprised to read the review from a wheelchair customer. We found the staff to be absolutely excellent and I am certain if the reviewer had bothered to ask any of the staff for guidance to lifts... More

Unusual, old-fashioned and charming is how I would describe Jenners. It has a maze-like quality so it's quite easy to get lost in the multitude of rooms and floors. Definitely worth a browse for a quaint shopping experience. The cafe is very good too, but extremely busy. I had a breakfast of cheese and tomato omelette with a decent cup... More

Staying in Princes Street and Gardens

Neighbourhood Profile
Princes Street and Gardens
Glaswegians tease Edinburghers that their High Street is only half one, since buildings only line one side. But what they don’t say is how extraordinary the views are from Princes Street as a result. From here you look onto expansive and decorative public gardens beneath the mighty basalt cliffs on which Edinburgh’s Castle stands proud above the rest of the dramatic old town skyline. Yet many of those on Princes Street look the other way, as they’re concerned with chain store shopping or catching the tram or a train at main train station Waverley. But it’s not all utility here; the Scottish National Gallery rewards purposeless wandering, and December’s huge winter market in the gardens begins a season of revelry which ends with Hogmanay, Britain’s largest New Year’s street party.
