We travel a lot and have stayed in many hotels. The Bonham is not a Four Star hotel, it's a Two Star hotel. Think Motel 6.
My husband and I had wanted to stay at the Bonham since our last trip to Edinburgh in 2008, we were then staying at the Edinburgh Residence and had breakfast at The Bonham daily. We were so impressed from what we saw of the hotel, which appeared to be elegant, low key and lovely, we knew the next time Edinburgh was in our travel plans we would stay there.
We completed a 6 day hike from Buckie to Aviemore (The Speyside walk) and our 7 nights in Edinburgh was to be our luxury treat. We checked in and were given the key to room #301. My heart sank when I opened the door to a tiny, hot-one small window, small bath/no window, shabby room. I went back to the front desk and said it would be impossible for us to live in that room at all, never mind for a week. Another room, #204 looked better at first, unfortunately after two nights of living out of our suitcases, the main problem being no chest of drawers, precious few hangers and generally rundown. We were very unhappy.
After complaining a second time we were told that the manager would get back to us but he never did.
