“Excellent hotel”
Reviewed 18 November 2013

Stayed here Saturday into Sunday for a theatre night. The outside belies the comfort that lies within. On arrival we were greated by a friendly receptionist who guided us to our comfortable and well appointed room.

Throughout our stay the staff where polite and helpfull and would recomend this hotel to anybody and it will my first choice for trips to Edinburgh in Future.
Also the breakfast was superb with a great choice in morning dishes again servers well by hard working staff.

Only one small quibble fix the heating it's boiling.

We have eaten here and had drinks many times, so thought we would stay the night. Got a good deal price wise, but room was tired and could have been cleaner. The worst was that the bin lorry arrived right outside our window at 6am, noise was awful! Cleaners then started banging about in the corridor outside our room, corridor was full of cleaning clutter and cleaners were waiting outside our room when we went for breakfast - come on montpeliers you can do better than this!! My advice would be stay somewhere else if noise bothers you.

Stayed here for two nights during a honeymoon trip to Scotland. A top notch hotel located in the heart of Edinburgh. Very stylish modern décor in the hotel and restaurant, many complimentary amenities in the room, world-class breakfast (I’m talking about a huge selection of items, cooked fresh to order and outstanding quality) and it was super clean throughout the building. The only thing preventing it from being a five star review is that there is no lift or convenient passage for hotel guests going from the entrance to their rooms. You must navigate a narrow path through the actual restaurant. However the clerk was kind enough to help with the luggage. As others had mentioned, the racket of the bin collectors in the morning is loud enough to wake you up. Although I can’t really fault the hotel for that fact. At the end of the day, you’ll get great treatment and a very comfortable stay for the money you pay (very competitive price compared to similar hotels nearby).

Stayed here on 3rd of November with a Groupon voucher..Trendy boutique hotel with fabulous cocktail bar. Our allocated room had a faulty tv remote and the heating at first seemed faulty but it was fine after a while. No problem, we were changed to another room on the top floor, however, this too had a faulty remote..Third time lucky and we had tv and heating. Dinner was lovely the chef had put real effort into the taste and presentation. For our rocky start our first drinks were on the house, which was a nice touch. All of the staff are really lovely. Good breakfast, next time in Edinburgh i will definately stay at Ricks Hotel...well done to the staff

Room Tip: rooms on the first floor are triple glazed

Rick's is a modern restaurant attached to a hotel, very centrally located in Edinburgh. You enter via steps heading down from street level, meaning once you're inside it's impossible to tell from the light what time of the day or night it is, making a bit of an odd atmosphere for lunch. The service was friendly and efficient. There was a good choice of food, plenty of light options as well as full meals. I had crab linguine which was really nice, but the portion size was disappointing. It felt a little overpriced for lunch.

We stayed here over the weekend of the 11th October as a large group (20 people) and had a great time from start to finish. From the moment we booked (a few months in advance) the staff were very helpful and made our stay fantastic from the moment we arrived until we departed on the Sunday!

We booked on a deal which included dinner on the first night and the food was really good, especially considering the place was packed and we had a group of 20. The breakfast on the morning was really tasty and lots of it.

The hotel has a great location, right off George street where most of the decent bars and nightclubs are located.

The hotel itself is nice, although there are a few parts that could do with a bit of a refresh such as the bathrooms, having said that it was clean and the location, price and service makes this a fantastic hotel and I’d definitely recommend it for a young couple or a group of friends staying in Edinburgh looking to be in the right part of town for a fun weekend.

Again, many thanks to the staff they were top notch!

We were walking along the streets above Princes and were given a flier from a lady advertising lunch for 2 for 10 pounds. We had a hard time finding the place mainly because it is located on the lower level and doesn't have the most eye catching sign out in front. Walking in it looked quite elegant with nice music playing and hip dressed wait staff. We were greeted by the receptionist and sat quickly. The people started to pour in a little bit after 12 noon, so were happy we showed up just before then. I had the beet risotto which was delicious along with the small goat cheese fritter...also delicious and my wife had the generous sized veggie club sandwich. All for 10 pounds and all very tasty. I will definitely be back.
