Reviewed 17 April 2014 via mobile

We have just returned from a 2 night stay at The Bonham. Great location, beautiful building, stunning views, excellent staff. We ate in the restaurant both nights & the food & service were brilliant. We will definitely stay there again when we are next in Edinburgh.

Business trip to Edinburgh so not in hotel for long, but comfortable well decorated room, with lovely views. Had a good nights sleep (rarity when staying in hotels for one night). Breakfast was excellent and staff very helpful. Would definitely use again.

Without a doubt, the best hotel I have stayed in in Edinburgh. Stylish, luxurious, glorious food, exceptional service and all at a rate that I was genuinely delighted to pay. I slept better here than in my own bed!

We have visited Edinburgh several times, usually staying on Princes Street or Waterloo Place. This time we decide to try a different area to see what it had to offer and we weren't disappointed. We stayed here for a long weekend and thoroughly enjoyed our stay.
The hotel is not in the centre of the city, but is very close and only took minutes to walk to Princes Street. We are in our 50's with average health and it didn't trouble us. (Unless you have a serious mobility issue this shouldn't be a problem.) In it's favour it is in a quiet area, and you have to pass a delicious ice cream shop on your way into town. Well worth a visit!
Our room was one of the hotels Petite rooms, which was big enough. Nice bathroom with body wash, shampoo and soap from the White Company. Very nice. (Extra things like sewing kit, conditioner, etc, were available from housekeeping if needed.)
The bed was VERY comfortable. We both slept very well.
During our stay we had a slight problem with our room which needed maintenance to attend late in the evening. All dealt with very quickly, confidently and in a professional way by a very helpful & polite young man.
Unfortunately we were unable to have the Afternoon Tea here as it was fully booked up. We were disappointed but Susanna, who was on reception, went above and beyond, calling hotels and looking on the internet to try to find somewhere for us, at the time we needed. Many thanks.
The breakfast was very nice with lots of choice. Fruit cocktail, yoghurt, cold meats and salmon, fresh fruit, cereals, and the cooked menu selection. I enjoyed the eggs benedict and the vegetarian selection during our stay. My husband thoroughly enjoyed the full Scottish breakfast on both mornings! Very tasty.
All things considered this hotel has a lot to offer. Great staff, a quiet location and good value for money if you get a good price with breakfast included.
(Oops! I clicked on the fitness rating by accident!)

Room Tip: Ask for a quiet room if you're a light sleeper.

stayed here in march - we booked this hotel as a special treat as we dont usually pay this much. The room was adequate however the bathroom was a little dated.Not much in the line of freebies such as biscuits, water etc. The staff were very attentive and no complaints there. The restaurant was nice and the food lovely however the £18.50 each turned into £25 plus when the supplements were added on. The wine list was expensive and the wine we ordered was to be frank awful - I have had much better from Tesco at a fraction of the £25 ish that we paid. As for the hotel bar, we had to go for a drink at the pub up the road (not a long walk) as the bar prices were ludicrous. Will not be returning until prices a little more realistic

Thanks for your review. So sorry to hear you did not enjoy your wine selection at dinner.
We are always listening to our guests feedback and as a result of some recent comments about our bar prices we have now reduced the price of our bottled beer.
We do hope to see you at The Bonham again.
Kind regards
Natalie

My husband and I have stayed at the Bonham twice for trips to view flats in Edinburgh for our upcoming move. We stumbled across the Bonham while walking around The West End and found the staff welcoming, warm, and incredibly friendly. This small boutique hotel has the perfect balance of style and substance with service of a 5* hotel. The property is well designed with thoughtful touches, small intimate spaces for drinks, and comfortably stylish common areas. The staff is what really sets this boutique hotel apart, everyone takes the time to make each guest feel special. Thank you for making an intense weekend, relaxing.

Room Tip: Rooms facing the square are super bright & sunny in the morning -- however rooms on the opposite...

I travelled up with my granddaughter (aged 7) on the sleeper, so we arrived at the hotel at 8.15am. We had been expecting just to leave our cases, but the Receptionist managed - as our room had been vacant the previous night - to let us put our cases in our room. I've stayed here twice before so knew already that it had a good position, and funnily enough we'd been allocated the same room as I'd had on my stay last year. It is a spacious superior room at the back of the hotel, so with splendid views. Everything as you would hope it would be, I couldn't fault it.

Room Tip: Rooms at the back are quieter, and have the better views.
