                  Perfect location with friendly staff who are extremely helpful. The room was a mixture of modern with the original antique features...well blended.

                  10.0

                  The staff were friendly and made us feel very welcome. We would chose this hotel again.

                  We had a beautiful view of chimney tops but disappointed Mary Popping wasn't to be seen. Honestly there was no faulting this hotel.

                • Couple
                  9.6

                  Lovely hotel very near to the centre of the city. Bed is very comfy and room was very big. The staff were lovely and very accomadating.

                  7.8

                  The hotel is only about five blocks away from Haymarket station and yet the street is quiet which makes it a good spot to relax after a day in Edinburgh.

                  We were staying only for one night but I found the bathroom to be particularly small although the size of our twin bedroom was spacious and comfortable.

                  In my room there was a piece of litter beside the rubbish bin that had been missed. Also someone has used the toilet and it had not been cleaned properly. I will not be returning.

                  7.4

                  beautiful hotel in Georgian style, high ceilings, close to city centre

                  Continental breakfast was disappointing

                • Couple
                  5.8

                  Quiet location and high ceiling.

                  No Free WIFI and a bit far from city center.

                • Single
                  4.6

                  Breakfast was badly cooked; no free internet facilities even for sending an email

                  The front desk staff was friendly enough. The woman that served breakfast (short dark hair) provided absolutely excellent service every time. The breakfast was good. The room/hotel was reasonably quiet considering the walls are quite thin in regards to soundproofing. The neighbourhood is very quiet but only a 10 minute walk to restaurants and shops. The Wi-Fi worked well. The overall comfort of the room was average. Decent bar by the front desk.

                  The front desk staff didn't mention to us that the hot breakfast would be charged to our room at an additional cost. Also, they saw that there was only 3 of us in a four person room but charged us the 4 person rate anyhow since it was booked as 4 person online. When we added an extra night, then they only charged the 3 person rate but didn't off to charge us the 3 person rate for the previous nights. I wasn't impressed with that considering we were of the very few guests at the time. The room door lock was tedious and the light switch was in shoddy condition. No food available at the hotel after breakfast.

                  We tried to book in at 1pm an hour earlier as the weather was bad, was told we could not as they were very busy. We returned at 2.30 pm and was given a room. The room looked as it had not been touched for some time, there was dust around and the cups and glasses were dingy and dusty. One glass even had dried milk in the bottom

                  The Manager in the Hotel was really lovely, pleasant and help full.

                  The towels were not changed and room was not as clean I expected in compare to other Thistle hotel I have stayed around the country.

                  Parking - the space was very difficult to enter and exit.

                  Very friendly and accommodating. Good size room which was clean and quiet.

                  Just to nit pick! We thought it was a shame that the fruit juice at breakfast wasn't fresh! (Was it made from a powder?)
