Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

What a great find We travelled to Edinburgh by train and the Hotel is less that 3 mins walk Lovely welcome on a cold Edinburgh day. Our room was great with alovely big bed and excellent bathroom. We ate out as we were going to the theatre and meeting family. The breakfast was amazing. a beautiful selection of fresh fruit, cold meats, lots of different breads and pastries. Then we got to the cooked breakfast menu.... WOW it was amazing so much choice. I had eggs royale and Sue had kippers bothwere excellent. The service was first class and all at a very resonable price. We will be back

Another excellent stay at the Parliament House Hotel. We enjoyed our visit over to Edinburgh and having the Parliament House as a base is just ideal. Staff are lovely and always willing to help or just chat away. The whole hotel from the reception area to the bedrooms are so well kept, simply stunning. We’ll be back!

Clean, very comfortable and great location at the Parliament House Hotel. Restaurants, bars and The Edinburgh Playhouse right on its doorstep. Staff very pleasant. Will definitely be back! The hope on and off buses are just around the corner, which is very handy.

A beautiful hotel that's very convenient for a short walk from Waverley station. We stayed for a weekend and almost everything was perfect. The staff were very professional and friendly, the room was decorated beautifully and the bed was incredibly comfortable. What prevented this being 5 stars for us was the bath with its water damaged panel and poor water pressure (we were room 406). In the bedroom itself there was certainly an opening somewhere that allowed the cold air (and noise from a few streets) away to flood the room through the night. The windows were confirmed to be shut. That being said it was a lovely stay and even given the small hiccups, we would stay again. The hotel was an easy walk to the castle and other spots to visit.

Room Tip: The steep cobbled street adjacent is best avoided if you struggle with walking up a hill.

A return stay at this friendly and comfortable hotel. A lovely comfortable and quiet room with all the facilities i could have wanted. A lovely comfy king sized bed. The location is excellent and very close to the St. James Quarter and Princes Street. There is a welcoming coal fire to relax at in the evening and have a wee nightcap. The reception staff are all very nice and helpful. Nothing is too much trouble.

Hidden away off the main drag a few minutes' walk from Waverley Station is this little charming place , roaring fire and lovely welcome , hotel looked well-kept and maintained , room was lovely and clean and a few lovely little shortbreads that we made short work of (pardon the pun) , all room facilities worked perfectly , short walk to everywhere really , we went to see Shrek at the Playhouse and literally 5 minutes away , breakfast next morning was plentiful and freshly cooked , they have a bistro where breakfast is served but I don't know how often its often but there are plenty of other choices nearby ( don't forget to book thou) little hidden gem - recommended

Love this little treasure! Great accomodation and the friendliest most helpful staff. Quiet despite being in the centre . Super comfy beds . Love the old features. Great location if you like shopping and walking up Calton Hill! Love the reception area...so cosy in winter and nice place to end the evening with a drink from the bar.

A lovely warm and very friendly hotel. Clean, quiet and so comfy. Staff are fantastic and the location is perfect! Can’t recommend this hotel enough. Will definitely be back. Takes approx 5-10 mins to walk to Waverley station but it’s still so quiet tucked away down the cobbled street.
