We have returned tonight from Edinburgh and the delightful Melvin House Hotel. Lovely room, lovely breakfast and very convenient location. The staff were also very obliging. We went for 3 nights with our friends and had a lovely time.

We spent three nights at the Melvin House on our way to the Highlands and returned for a fourth night on the way home. Can't say enough good things about the Melvin House and their helpful staff. Absolutely great breakfasts, spacious rooms (even in comparison to American hotels) clean, tastefully decorated rooms with comfortable beds, and we had great views of the Castle and the Firth of Fourth. The Library is amazing, the bar, lobby and dining rooms exude comfort and charm. Very convenient location close to Princes Street, Rose Street, the National Gallery, the Castle and Dean Village. We highly recommend this "best kept secret" in Edinburgh!

I have just read the reviews of the melvin house hotel, and i would recommend this hotel to anyone that likes the old style sottish hotel, suberb views, clean and goes back into history with its old style, no nonsense hotel. Quiet hotel, no noise and the staff are excellent, the rooms manager was very helpful. She made us so welcome as did all the other staff. In 3 words, old, supberb and clean!

My boyfriend and I stayed for two nights at Melvin House (early July); in the magical city that is Edinburgh! As previously said, the hotel is ideally located very close to many of the attractions, but in a quiet square. The entrance was beautiful and check-in was courteous and efficient. We had a fabulous room with two large windows that overlooked a small park. The bathroom was also clean and spacious, and the shower was powerful with plenty of hot water. The bedroom furniture was in keeping with the style of the hotel, and I really liked that (though there was a large modern television with loads of digital channels). Granted - The beds were two very large singles pushed together, but nonetheless was extremely comfortable - plenty of pillows and so forth. Breakfast was superb - there was a choice of exquisite fresh fruit, croissants and cereals, and you could also order a range of cooked options from the breakfast menu. Breakfast was served in a delightful room with breathtaking views of the city. We paid £80 per room per night, and this included breakfast - and we felt this was a very fair price for such a memorable experience. Enjoy.
