Large spacious rooms with big beds. A taste of old world charm and character. Good location within 5 minutes walk of main shops on Princess Street. Tasty breakfast as well. For the money £100/night you can't beat it!

Well situated in the centre of Edinburgh, 10 minutes walk from the station. The staff were helpful and we were upgraded free of charge to a room with a four-poster bed on our arrival. The room was spacious with a comfortable bed and chaise-lounge and view that over looked a park. Low speed wi-fi was available and this made an excellent base to explore the city.

As this hotel is adjoined to the Royal Scots Club my fiancee didn't feel entirely comfortable with the gentlemen's club atmosphere.

I booked the Royal Scots Club for a Halloween break and was really pleased with the price, especially when compared with the accommodation deals in larger hotels along Prince's Street.
On arrival we were upgraded to a four poster bed room, and although we had a bit of a climb up the stairs, the room was comfortable and pleasant to spend time in. The hotel was really convenient for both the New Town and Prince's Street but also quiet at night. Ladies, one note - this is a gentlemen's club and as such the soap/shampoo provided are slightly 'unfeminine' in smell!
Breakfasts were fine and we did feel uncomfortable with the dress code in public areas - overall I enjoyed the idea of something different with a sense of history.
The Club was pleasantly busy at night with meetings/parties, and we had a lovely sense of being away from the tourist trail (without disturbing noise).
I would recommend this as a place to stay if you do not mind walking a bit and would like something different...

Good location , over the hill from Princes Street .....though this hill is a bit steep for a short while and would be tricky for people with walking problems. Whole hotel is spotlessly clean and furnished in quite a grand and traditional style. Fabulous soft white , large bathroom towels , Molten Brown shower and hair "stuff" and a superb power shower. On the down side , the Scottish breakfast is poor with very bland sausages, bacon and black pudding . A better alternative is to order 2 poached eggs with smoked salmon and wholemeal brown toast. William at reception was utterly charming and helpfull.

My husband and I stayed for one night at the hotel to attend my Graduation Ball in Edinburgh. From the moment we arrived we were treated to a wonderful experience. The staff were friendly and discreet. The room was sumptuous and elegant, and the breakfast was perfectly cooked.
It was so nice to escape the sound of mobile phones when enjoying a drink in the lounge as the use of them is frowned upon.
We were so impressed that we are applying for membership so we can take advantage of the wonderful facilities that the hotel affords.
The dress code adds to the feeling of old fashioned values, and after all, isn't it nice to dress up once in a while?
