Reviewed 31 March 2014 via mobile

Our 20-something daughters stayed for 4 nights in late March and they couldn't been happier. Very comfy beds, roomy bathroom, separate WC were great! What they liked the best was the hair straightener and surround sound iPod speakers built-in. Fabulous!

My husband and I stayed for 2 nights mid-week and had a really nice stay. The hotel was clean, modern and comfortable, we were definitely impressed! The bed was massive and cosy, the bathroom had a big shower, a lovely bath and an enormous sink. I was really happy when I found the hairdryer and GHD's, they were definitely a welcome find!
The bar downstairs was run by really friendly staff and we both enjoyed a welcome drink on arrival. We had a lovely breakfast in the bar both mornings of our stay and on one of the evenings we enjoyed a very talented live singer.
We would definitely stay at Inn On The Mile again, it's a perfect hotel in the perfect location!

We realised very quickly when we arrived, that we had chosen the right place to stay. Excellent staff could not have been more friendly or helpful. We stayed in Room 2 which was very spacious, and clean, with lots of lovely finishing touches.Huge bathroom with plentiful supply of towels.There was no noise whatsoever from downstairs although we were right over the bar. Street noise is to be expected in a big city , but it did not spoil our sleep.Two small suggestions.....instructions for the heating would be helpful.....and although the chair in the room is very stylish........a comfy chair would be most acceptable after a day walking around Edinburgh.!! Food is well cooked and presented..........with generous portions, and the bar sports a huge selection of drinks. We enjoyed our 3 nights very much, and would recommend the Inn on the Mile to anyone wanting to stay right in the centre of Edinburgh, but who like ourselves would not fancy staying in one of the big impersonal hotels.

Room Tip: Room 2 is on the first floor.......remember there is no lift !!

I stayed here for almost a week with my best friend. Yes, the rooms are on the small side, but they're very well done (aside from the frosted glass bathroom doors which seem to me either not at all thought-out or very well thought-out by a designer with a sense of humor).

The bar and restaurant is a great convenience, and the location is perfect. It's a quick walk from the train station, the airport shuttle, and major attractions.

Most important, the staff is fantastic. Stef and Rachel kept us caffeinated in the mornings; Chris and Jack kept us in ale in the evening. They were quick to answer questions, ready with information about the city, and just overall very friendly. They made sure we had directions when needed and even let us print our bus tickets and boarding passes at the front desk. (There was another one gee...Drew? Dabney? Hm...)

I'd highly recommend the Inn on the Mile to anyone looking to stay in the middle of it all in Edinburgh.

This is a great little hotel situated in the heart of Edinburgh on the Royal Mile. The staff were fantastic, food was good (and plenty of it) and the room was amazing. The bed was big & very comfortable, the bathroom was very modern & although I didn't sample the bath it looked very inviting. The GHDs were a bonus & all the little extras (too numerous to mention) were great. The only drawback is that there is no lift. We will definitely stay here again & can't recommend it highly enough.

Room Tip: We stayed in Room 5 & had an excellent view

We booked a 3 night weekend stay so were able to take advantage of a good deal. Cannot praise the staff enough from the moment we arrived to when we left. Super friendly, super helpful - nothing is too much trouble. Our room was large and well appointed and the bathroom was HUGE with a deep roll top bath. VERY comfortable and big bed. Our only observations - one of which we pointed out when we left - a small easy chair would have been nice and also for the ladies, a magnifying mirror in the bathroom

. As other people have said it it is bit noisy from the street in the wee small hours but then you are very central. We did not hear any noise from the bar even though we were directly above it. Food is very good especially the fish supper served in newspaper. Cooked Breakfast was plentiful, not a huge choice of other things but what there is is extremely good. Very well stocked bar - found gins I had never heard of before!
We can highly recommend this pub come boutique hotel - you won't be disappointed!! Who needs faceless chain hotels when you can have quality and individuality like this !

Room Tip: Ask for a higher floor if sleep quality is paramount due to street noise

Hi pappy965

WOW thanks for a stunning review of your stay, so happy the team made your visit enjoyable will pass on these comments at our next meeting. The rooms are great and our bathrooms keep getting great comments especially the deep luxurious baths. Our kitchen team will be over the moon with your review as they can be overlooked sometimes but the effort these guys put in needs to recognised and as you stated no over complicated menu just good well prepared hearty cooking.

Thanks again for taking the time out to review your stay at The Inn on the Mile.
