We had booked another place for our holiday in Edinburgh. But unfortunately our room had been having an accident with leeking waterpibes, and the smell was bad. So we found Melvin House and they had space for us (in the middle of festival season !!!) So we where very happy.
The hotel is everything I have ever imagined about scottish cosyness and politeness. The room was very spacy and the vue was spot on. Our teen son loved there big scottish breakfast and there is not a single thing to put a finger on, we would love to go back to Melvin House again.

I travelled to Edinburgh with a group of my English students, all ladies over 60 and chose this hotel on reading the Tripadvisor reviews. I was not disappointed. Despite having to change our booking just before, Graeme and his staff were charming and helpful. Our stay was delightful though so of the ladies struggled with the plumbing a little but in general they all slept very well and appreciated the well-appointed bathrooms. This hotel is in a very exclusive part of Edinburgh and has fantastic views from the backfacing rooms. The library is straight from a stately home and in general the Scottish baronial style is very appealing. If you like Holyrood House you will like this hotel. Definitely would recommend it as it is easy walking distance to Princes Street and ideal for touring Edinburgh.

Fantastic 'old-fashioned' hotel, and I mean that as a compliment. Wonderful interior with a great character. The staff were discreet and extremely friendly and helpful. The location is in a quiet area of wonderful granite buildings, but only a short walk to Princes Street or Haymarket and therefore a wide range of restaurants and bars. Couldn't recommend it enough for a weekend break.

We arrived at the hotel early and yet were allowed the keys and access to the room which was great, upgrated to a beautiful room with four poster bed and very spacious. Clean, everything you need for a comfortable two night break, we will definitely stay again at Melvin house. Only a five minute walk to Princess Street, in a quiet location in a very pleasant street
