5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 September 2011

When we arrived we got an upgrade to the deluxe suite and the room was beautiful! Lovely shower and bath, excellent cleanliness and breakfasts were great. Staff service was far above a standard hostel and nothing was too much trouble. We left some items in the room and the staff called immediately and posted them back to us at no cost right away. Next time we are in Edinburgh we will definitely stay here!

it's more a residential area than tourist center, same price could be more choice at same area and there are very strict rule to use the room, say, not eat & drink at room or you have to pay for dry clean if you made dirt on carpet. maybe hence, room is quite clean

My husband and I stayed there for a week. The location is very nice - 15 min walk to Princess Street (5 min by bus), Airlink bus stop (from and to the airport) is 1 min from the hotel, just down the street. We really liked the breakfasts served, breakfast menu is great: yogurts, fruit, cereals, fruit salad, all possible types of eggs with bacon, sausages, tomatoes, mushroom, potatoes, toasts with jam and marmalade, everything was fresh and nicely cooked. This hotel is a family run one, and the staff is very attentive to the tiny details. When we left for the tour to Highlands early morning, they offered sandwiches and "breakfast to go". We checked the reviews before booking and some said that there was a problem with the showers, but they were almost done renewing all the showers when we were there and ours was new and great.

We stayed two nights in this beautiful excellent cozy and super clean hotel in the middle of edinburgh city,we walk to all the main attractions in edinburgh,I find the water pressure is not a problem now as the owner has upgrade and renovated all the toilet now,IMO to maintain a beautiful hundred plus old building like this,they have done a great job in this place,and love to go back one day.

Nice place and good breakfast. Very small and weak power shower. Good double bed, without the normal (for Europe) gap down the middle. Price was reasonable for being during August and associated activities in Edinburgh. Only complaint was that the manager banged on our door at 0630 in the morning, but wasn't there when we opened the door to see what was going on. Apparently somebody was smoking in the hotel down our hall and she just felt the urge to wake everybody up.

We arrived in Edinburgh on the train from Glasgow at the Haymarket Station, which was just a block from the Grosvenor Gardens. The B & B is convenient to stores and restaurants, and more importantly, was within walking distance to Murrayfield Stadium, which was where we were seeing the Oasis concert. We had booked 2 rooms, one of which was a double. Since there were 2 doubles available, we were shown both and allowed to choose. The rooms were large, clean, and beautifully decorated, Each of the rooms was different, with antique furniture and big, comfortable beds. We were given our own keys so that we could come and go as we wished. The hotel is located in "New Town" (which we were told is only 400 years old!) so it was a rather long but very pleasant walk to "Old Town". We saw some very historic and beautiful gothic structures, graveyards and churches, and of course, Edinburgh Castle, which is perched high atop the city and visible from all over. Our favorite pub in Old Town was called "World's End", because it sits where the wall of the city had been in early days, which no one ventured beyond. After refreshments, we visited the Royal Edinburgh Gardens, which I highly recommend. Being a long way from Grosvenor Gardens by this point, we took a cab back. We had a nice evening followed by a second restful night, and were very pleased with the full Scottish breakfast, made to order, in the morning. The management and staff at the hotel could not have been more pleasant, helpful and friendly. They answered questions, gave directions, gave travel tips and were generally the ideal hosts. I would definitely recommend the Grosvenor Gardens and would be more than happy to visit again next time I'm in Edinburgh.

Stayed during Hogmanay 2008-09. My two friends and I experienced SERVICE UNMATCHED at even the nicest hotels or B&Bs. The staff went out of their way to ensure that we were comfortable, and the staff even gave us gifts for New Year's Eve!!! (wine and shortbread)

My only complaint -- and a significant one -- was the water pressure was lousy. It wasn't a drip but not terribly powerful. Improperly using the mechanism to work the shower had the potential to scald. This needs improvement.

The location wasn't unreasonable either. Maybe a block more than one would prefer from the main Princes Street festivities, but a very easy walk nonetheless. For UK train riders, this place is steps from Haymarket Station. Just be careful to choose Rosebury Crescent from the street Haymarket is on (West Coates). Grosvenor Street not the same as Grosvenor Gardens.

All in all, a good stay, INCREDIBLE service!!!
