Everything about my visit for a full body massage was excellent. The receptionist and therapist both went out of their way to make my visit enjoyable. The setting is quietly opulent and the massage itself very good indeed. I have booked for another visit tomorrow !

We were guests of the hotel and thought that a swim on Sunday lunchtime before a spa treatment would be relaxing, only to find the small pool mobbed with children who were having swimming lessons. We didn't go in - being in a noisy busy tiny swimming pool is neither luxurious or relaxing. The jacuzzi was not working, and seemed... More

Lovely Spa as you would expect in this type of hotel and as a gift I had a manicure. This was very nice and professional. However, this lovely experience was tarnished when one of my friends who needed a little waxing (upper lip and chin) booked in for this treatment, she had it (all of 10 mins in the treatment...

Visited as part of a Mother's Day treat with my Mum. The Spa itself is lovely and beautifully decorated. The swimming area floors are very slippy and the changing rooms are tight for space if there are a few people in it at one time.Unfortunately the treatment room I was in was cold and the therapist I had's breath smelt...

Sink into luxury and let yourself be pampered by the best therapists and masseurs.. They start with a Perfume journey wherein one can choose their own choice of fragrance from the wide array of Guerlin perfumes and then your room is prepared keeping your choice in mind. The robes and fit flops one changes into are comfortable and clean. After... More

I went here for my mum's birthday this week. This is the only Guerlain Spa in the UK. I had purchased the Mother and Daughter Spa day experience. We arrived early so we could use the pool, sauna, steam room and jacuzzi. These areas were standard, clean but not luxurious like some other spas but the changing areas were 5... More

I visited the spa today along with a friend using an It Is On voucher for 2 treatments and a glass of fizz. We were met by a very friendly receptionist who showed us around and gave us our lockers with robes and flip flops. The robes were of a very high standard and very cosy. The pool area was... More

Had a lovely massage at this great spa in Edinburgh. The treatment started with a bonus foot bath and the level of service was good throughout. The low point was reception before and after the treatment. That needs much improvement, the service was harried and charmless.

We paid a visit to the Guerlain spa as part of an Itison deal for use of the spa with choice of treatment (either two 30 minute treatments or one 60 minute) and glass of fizz for £79 per person.

Staying in Princes Street and Gardens

Neighbourhood Profile
Princes Street and Gardens
Glaswegians tease Edinburghers that their High Street is only half one, since buildings only line one side. But what they don’t say is how extraordinary the views are from Princes Street as a result. From here you look onto expansive and decorative public gardens beneath the mighty basalt cliffs on which Edinburgh’s Castle stands proud above the rest of the dramatic old town skyline. Yet many of those on Princes Street look the other way, as they’re concerned with chain store shopping or catching the tram or a train at main train station Waverley. But it’s not all utility here; the Scottish National Gallery rewards purposeless wandering, and December’s huge winter market in the gardens begins a season of revelry which ends with Hogmanay, Britain’s largest New Year’s street party.
