“Another big treat!”
Reviewed 7 April 2013

Do not miss the itison Bonham deals as they are such good value! This was our second visit and once again we enjoyed a lovely stay in a beautiful room with a superb dinner and breakfast included.
The wine and petals were a nice touch but not as memorable as the in house pistachio macaroons. I am still dreaming about them!
On both occasions we were joined by family for dinner but not charged the next day until we pointed it out. I don't like to think of you being out of pocket.
Parking is available which is a real plus in the centre of Edinburgh.

We were recommended The Bonham Hotel and were not disappointed. It is perfectly located in a quiet street, ensuring a peaceful nights sleep, but within easy walking distance to explore the city. We ate in the restaurant, the food was excellent and the set menu was very good value for money and obviously popular as it was full.
My only minor criticism is that on a Thursday night only the set menu is available. This does limit the choice of food and although we were not disappointed, we thought that the hotel should have mentioned it when we booked.
We would certainly go back next time we are in Edinburgh and would recommend it without hesitation.

The Bonham sits on a quiet square in the heart of Edinburgh's New Town, a world heritage site. The panelled reception, bar and restaurant are well proportioned with a solid elegance. Our room, although classed "petite" did not feel cramped. It was stylishly furnished with outstanding views over the New Town, and just a few minutes' walk from the Castle and Princes Street. A bonus was free parking on site, a rarity in central Edinburgh. I would definitely stay there again.

Very friendly welcome and we were able to drop our bags off before check in so we could explore the city without being weighed down. The room was lovely, with great views across to the Forth and the breakfast was delicious.
The hotel was only a 10 minute walk from Princes street in a lovely area of the city very near the river.

Would definitely stay there again :)

Our afternoon tea was adequate, but certainly had a generous supply of sandwiches and cakes, and the Japanese green tea was most fragrant and refreshing (although no glass of Kir came, as seemed to be suggested by the entry on your website). And everything was served courteously and impeccably, by a friendly waitress. And a nice touch was her offer of a doggy-bag afterwards. The main disappointment was being in a small dark room (nothing like so attractive as the one on the website) looking out on the dull car-park, and blocks of flats, at the back – while on leaving we passed a large llounge at the front, bathed in sunshine and with an outlook to the gardens.

Stayed here for 2 nights in a lower ground twin room. The whole hotel is tastefully decorated and the bedrooms were no exception. Very comfy beds, spacious rooms and the shower was amazing!

The location is less than 10 minutes walk from the castle yet is in a quiet residential area which is lovely. There is also a free car park that we used... Brilliant for almost central Edinburgh!

The breakfast (which was included) was fantastic. One of the best I've had for quality. The continental buffet and fruit juices were great, a good selection of clearly high quality foods were available including fresh fruit salad, croissants, cheeses and salmon. The cooked breakfasts were just as nice and were beautifully presented.

The staff here were very friendly and helpful... No complaints at all. We had to wait 30 minutes for our room on arrival but the receptionist made sure we had drinks and cookies... All on the house which was very nice!

We also had a drink on an evening in the cosy bar... Complete with open fireplace which was perfect.

I would definitely stay here again and would also recommend to family and friends.
