“Great spot, great stay”
Reviewed 4 March 2014

Spent a Sunny weekend at the Inn On The Mile in March. It was great waking up with the sun shining through the large windows and the quality of the bed has made me think about the possibilities of beds in a whole new way. Id recommend the hotel if you want to be in a central location for a romantic yet lively stay. The noise from downstairs wasn't as bad as expected even on a Saturday night and the bar staff were extra friendly and accommodating to guests even though its a popular bar with a good crowd. The bathroom was one of the best ive ever used and the shower and free standing bath were awesome.

We stayed in Edinburgh for 2 nights in different hotels, this one was by far the best, and also the cheapest.
The staff were very friendly and allowed us to leave our bags while we checked out Edinburgh until our room was ready, this was a big plus!
The location is perfect, everything you could want to do is within easy walking distance.
The room was AMAZING. Very clean and I liked the contemporary design. I highly commend the bathroom suite, it had clearly been well constructed with no expense was spared.
I will definitely be staying here again if I go back to Edinburgh!

Room Tip: Room 5 had great views and an amazing bathroom as mentioned.

stayed for the 1st time at the inn on the mile! lovely warm homely bar, no fuss reception. a guy who may of been the manager, gave us free drinks on checking in , which was a nice bonus, he then took our bags and said he would leave them in our rooms while we enjoyed our drinks..nice touch.. we actually wished we stayed longer as we had no problems or complaints about this hotel at all. rooms lovely and clean, all mod cons, fab deep bath with lots of hot water. complimentary toiletries..location was perfect, slept soundly, we travelled with another couple and they too loved their room.. all in all a perfect stay, and whats more when I returned home to England, I find I left my purse in their room safe.. I telephoned and they sorted it out straight away and arranged to have it posted first working day to me.. wonderful staff, cant wait to return very soon...

Me and my partner stayed at the Inn on the Mile for two nights. The location is superb, right on the royal mile, just at the top of North Bridge, an easy walk from Waverly station. All the main sights are within walking distance and with bars, resturants and shops all in close proximity.

The staff are really friendly and provide great service. They are happy to make recommendations and are very attentive. The maid kept our room spotlessly clean.

The hotel is above the pub, which we were a little apprehensive about due to noise. Our room was situated on the first floor, right above the pub and we heard little to no noise from the pub. There is traffic noise, which every Edinburgh city hotel has I suppose, but this isn't that bad at night and it certainly didn't affect our sleep.

We eat in the pub one night and the food was really good. It is pub food and the menu is simple foods. The taste and quality of the food is supberb and the portion sizes are large. It is great value for money. We also got 30% off food in the pub and 20% off drinks. There is live music in the pub in the evenings, which was ver good.

The rooms have obviously been renovated in the recent past. We stayed in a Royal Mile Double room which was superb. The bathroom had a large bathtub as well as a rainfall style shower. The matress was extremely comfy and a great size. The rooms have all the mod cons such as ipod docking station on in built roof speakers.

The only downside to this property, which did not affect our trip, but may for elderly people or disabled is that there is no lift. They will help you with your bags up the stairs. I am presuming here, but I reckon the building is listed and therefore it is probably impossible to get the council to giver permission for a lift.

Overall we had an amazing stay and would not hesitate to go back to the Inn on the Mile.

Room Tip: Go for a Royal Mile room type!

Hi Patrick E,

Many thanks for your in depth review of our Inn on the Mile. The venue is central to everything in Edinburgh especially the train station which you mentioned. I will pass on your kind comments about our teams effort both in the bar/ restaurant and hotel. The venue was renovated in July allowing us to give our modern rustic boutique outlook. You are spot on when say that we are listed building thus no lift, but this just adds to the quirkiness of the building.

Thanks again for taking the time out to review your stay and we look forward to welcoming you back to your home on the mile, The Inn on the Mile.

The room and location were great but the service let this down. Calling downstairs to the bar for any sort or service was time consuming. Room not reset properly after first night. Not worth the price tag.

Popped in for a drink on a Wednesday evening and ended up staying until closing time. The staff were friendly, range of drinks good and the live singer was very enjoyable. He also took requests which was a nice touch.
I was so impressed I returned on Friday (21/2) to see if I could book a room for my return visit in April. I stood by the booking desk for 5 minutes and neither of the staff asked if they could help us, so we left...

Hi cazrss,

Thanks for your review of your visit to our funky bar, we are glad you enjoyed the drinks and live music. I will share with our team you found them friendly but let down on your revisit on Friday. I will defiantly review your findings on the service encountered. If you are still interested in an April visit to Edinburgh please visit our website where you can save some money by booking direct through our site.
