My partner found Twelve Picardy Place online whilst we were planning our weekend break to Edinburgh and after looking at a few other hotels in the city decided that this one looked the nicest, offered what we required and also appeared to be extremely good value.

On arrival at the hotel we were warmly greeted by the staff and immediately noted the homely feel. We were shown around the hotel and to our room on the first floor 'Loch Levan'. The room was wonderfully decorated with heavy curtains (there is also a black out blind), deep colours and the most amazing feature wall! The bathroom continued the opulent theme with a gorgeous rainforest shower (and H2K toiletries).

We visited both the cocktail bar (fab French Martinis by the way) and Beer & Skittles during our stay and would recommend them to anyone visiting the area or hotel.

The location is fantastic no matter what your reason is for visiting the city with the castle and shops just a short walk away and some fantastic local restaurants as well!

Although there is no parking at the hotel, you can use the Qpark opposite at a discounted rate which was cheaper than most hotel car parks we have used in the past.

The hotel left us feeling relaxed and refreshed which was just what we needed - the bed was extremely comfortable and we got two very good nights sleep! The hotel was very quiet and a real oasis of calm.

I would recommend this hotel to anyone, I really didn't want to leave and can't wait to come back with friends later this year and try out Steak!

Thank you to all of the staff for making our trip so easy, you're fantastic!

Really enjoyed our trip and the room, staff and service were all excellent. Very quirky but hopefully that doesn't change as it is such a refreshing difference from chain hotels.
Stayed in the Loch Katrine suite and the room was huge, great bathroom with large bath and 'rainforest ' shower. Some noise from the beer gardens outside but its a city centre so not an issue for us. Ate in the Steak restaurant and the meal and service were first class. We'll be back for sure.

Stayed here on a business trip. Great hotel! Fantastic Georgian building, apparently the birthplace of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. Great steak restaurant next door and basement bar "Beer and Skittles". Will stay here again

We stayed at Twelve Picardy Place for the Valentines weekend. The hotel certainly lived up to the reviews we had read.
The staff were friendly and helpful. The room was trendy with a huge TV at the foot of our bed.
We ate at Steak Edinburgh on our first evening and what a treat. The waitress was brilliant and our Beef Wellington was the best we've ever tasted - so delicious.
We were so impressed with everything that we are planning to return soon. Wonderful weekend.

Twelve Picardy Place is a real gem at the end of Prince Street, okay so it's an extra 5 minute walk but well worth it. As I've been working away in Edinburgh for the last three months I though it would be nice to grab a few days away with my wife in Edinburgh over the half term beak. A couple of my colleagues suggested I have chat with the management team and it was well worth it.
The hotel may only have a small number of rooms but they are a definite 'WOW', the room sizes are amazing, the bathrooms / shower rooms are amazing and the various features in each are absolutely fabulous.
Loch Eck is certainly worth the climb up the 3 flights of stairs.
The staff are really friendly and cannot do too much to help you enjoy your stay. We both enjoyed our 3 days and as such we are both keen to come back again, which from me is the highest complement I can offer, I want to go back.
