Edinburgh City Holiday Reviews

Edinburgh City, Edinburgh



Book a hotel in Edinburgh and enjoy the historical capital of Scotland and its impressive and endlessly pretty castle skyline. Edinburgh offers fantastic galleries and museums, world-class theatres and great shopping, making this destination vibrant and modern with a traditional Scottish twist.

Hotels in Edinburgh are scattered all around the city, with the main concentration being in the city centre, around Princes Street and the Royal Mile. It doesn't really matter, however, as the city is well connected with an excellent bus and tram network. In most cases, the best parts of Edinburgh are with walking distance of your hotel.

As a capital city, Edinburgh offers all of the regular delights you would expect - including excellent shopping and a nightlife that is famous all over the world - yet it has so much more to offer.

  • The Royal Mile is the cultural heart of Edinburgh. In August this street is filled with artists and acts performing and selling tickets to their shows in the Edinburgh fringe. For the rest of the year, the Royal Mile offers excellent architecture, museums, The Whiskey Experience and a whole host of bars, tourist shops and restaurants. At the top of the Royal Mile, you reach Edinburgh Castle
  • Edinburgh Castle sits atop a large hill right in the centre of Edinburgh. From here you can get some of the best views of the city, you could even see your hotel! Visit the castle for a journey through Scotland's fascinating history.
  • The Palace of Holyroodhouse offers you a chance to see into how the royals live, with it still very much being one of the Queens residences. You can purchase tickets to visit the Palace from us when you book your Edinburgh Hotel


There is so much to see and do in this thriving city. To help plan your break, we have pulled together an Edinburgh Travel Guide that should help you decide what to do whilst there. What's more, if you want to make your most out of your short break, why not save some time and hop on one of our flight packages to Edinburgh So why not book your Hotel in Edinburgh and discover all the exciting things we've mentioned here.

Stay Date: 14/10/16, a customer aged 45-64 who stayed at 5* Principal Edinburgh George Street in Edinburgh wrote this review.

We stayed at the George Hotel, Edinburgh given as a gift. First time in the hotel and it was lovely. There was a few minutes wait before they found our booking and because of this they gave us See More  Read more information complimentary breakfast and drinks. Staff were exceptionally friendly and the room was lovely too. Good base for the New Town of Edinburgh - The Dome across the road from the hotel is spectacular. You canhave lunch, dinner or just drinks. We ate at a Thai restaurant in Castle Street recommended by staff. Overall the George Hotel is pricey for just a party night, however as a special occasion, it wasexcellent.   Collapse  Hide

Fabulous Edinburgh Break

Stay Date: 03/04/18, a customer aged 45-64 from United Kingdom who stayed at 5* Principal Edinburgh George Street in Edinburgh wrote this review.

Fantastic stay at The Principal Hotel, George Street. We had dinner in the restaurant on the first night - the food was great but it was quite chilly in the dining room. The room was excellent if a See More  Read more information little small but that didn't really bother us. George Street is a great location to stay. Really close to Waverley Station and everywhere else. We walked everywhere, including to Leith (about 50mins). The Royal Mile and Rose Street were favourites. If able, a walk up to Arthur's Seat is a must.   Collapse  Hide

Comfortable hotel in Edinburgh

Stay Date: 15/06/19, a customer aged 45-64 who stayed at 5* Principal Edinburgh George Street in Edinburgh wrote this review.

The hotel was welcoming and comfortable. It's conveniently situated close to the station. The room was excellent and so was the food served at breakfast. I found the staff very accommodating and See More  Read more information very pleasant. There's also an excellent left luggage service. I was slightly disappointed that one day refreshments in the room hadn't been replenished and we had to ask for tea bags - this onlyoccurred on one occasion - otherwise, the refreshments in the room were excellent: crisps/biscuits/tea/coffee and fresh milk which is so much better than UHT. One morning we had to queue for almost 15minutes just before 08:00am to wait to be seated for breakfast. To be fair to staff they were very apologetic about this matter and came to us afterwards to check that everything was ok. It was only 15minutes we'd built enough time into our plans so that the delay didn't affect us. Nevertheless, this was due to a large party all coming down for breakfast at the same time and later I did wonder whythis hadn't been arranged in advance. These are very minor things - we'd certainly stay there again.   Collapse  Hide
