It was a pleasure to come to this hotel for my friends Hen Do lunch. I had to organise a lunch for 16 ladies and wanted to keep it close to our other venues. 'The Place' was just what we were looking for, something classy with fantastic food and excellent service. Daniel the food and beverage manager could not have done enough for us and his communication during the organisation of the event was excellent. Daniel even took some nice group photographs of us all, which we really appreciated.

Thank so much for a lovely afternoon and lunch. We will certainly be back.

My husband and I recently stayed at The Place hotel as a birthday treat from our children. We are both quite pernickety when it comes to hotels, however neither of us could fault The Place. The service is next to none with staff being very attentive and professional and the rooms are very comfortable, clean and modern. The bar/lounge area are both very stylish with fabulous decor and the full breakfast was delicious!

We would recommend The Place to anyone looking to stay in Edinburgh. The hotel is just 2 minutes from the Edinburgh Playhouse (ideal for Theatre breaks) and is right on the cusp of Princes Street - so ideal location for all!

We will definitely be back to enjoy another stay soon.

Stayed here for the weekend and couldn't really fault it for what we paid (just over 150 for two nights B and b).
Room moderrn and clean. Reception and bar area recently refurbed and very modern. We ate here for the first evening and food was very good although there was only foure of us eating so the atmosphere was lacking. The breakfasts were very good and food was cooked to order if you wanted anything different to the standard scottish breakfast.

All in all a great stay in a brilliant city!
