I had a basement room which was homely, comfortable and warm, it felt like my own space, private and quiet as the other basement room wasn't occupied. Convenient for rail, tram and sightseeing. Quality of breakfast was very high and a good selection was on offer. Staff were friendly and polite.

We've just returned from a five night stay at the Lairg. After reading previous reviews we were a little apprehensive. We are aware people have their own opinions & expectations. Personally we enjoyed staying in The Lairg. There was a variety of breakfast options and the full Scottish breakfast was plentiful and served hot. The staff were very pleasant and...

I've given the Lairg a five star rating based on value for money. We had a three night stay in December. The room was clean and warm with a good shower and comfortable bed with cotton linen. The staff are efficient with little or no interest in interacting with guests. But that is a small point. I would return to...

For a good nights sleep and excellent Scottish breakfast we could not have done any better than staying at the Haig Hotel. Within 5 minutes of the Railway Station at Haymarket and the tram to the town centre etc The rooms are big with a good sized on-suite. Our room was on the ground floor and was very well equipped....

Fantastic Location, short walk from haymarket, very easy to get around the city. The hotel I was greatly disappointed apart from the welcome. At the desk we were welcomed from a nice man who gave us plenty of information regarding the city. The room nothing like the pics on trip advisor. We stayed in room no. 2 top floor, which...

Perfect location to stay for a weekend. 20 min direct walk to city centre, less than 5 min walk to train station & only 20 min taxi ride from the airport. Rooms are all very clean & well kept (spotless under sofa cushions!), good breakfast with several options & we all fell in love with the owner. Hugely helpful &...

Staying in West End

Neighbourhood Profile
West End
Prevailing winds meant that most cities that grew in industrial Britain had their most desirable neighbourhoods to the west – upwind of factory fumes. Edinburgh was no exception, with its wealthiest citizens settling in its West End and leaving behind grand Georgian townhouses, private gardens and genteel crescents. These backstreets remain as dignified and sleepy as ever, and most of the action here lies along the district’s busy main roads. Lothian Road connects to southern Edinburgh and harbors a vague entertainment district: three theatres and the city’s main indie cinema. All attract a select crowd, the sort who appreciate the Saturday Edinburgh’s Farmers’ Market around the corner. The West End’s other great thoroughfare, Shandwick Place, is dominated by trams trundling out to the suburbs and airport, and shoppers picking up last-minute items before hopping aboard.
