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 &...

Just returned with 7 girls from a weekend stay at The Lairg. The location is great with the hotel being just a short walk from the city centre and Haymarket strain station. The hotel is clean and the breakfast was lovely offering fruit & cereal to a cooked Scottish Breakfast. Staff very friendly and helpful. We stayed in room 25...

This hotel ticks so many boxes. Location, a short walk to: Princes Street area; Haymarket rail station; the tram and bus stop to/from the airport. Warm greeting by the hotel manager Remas. He was informative as to local matters. Allocated room 17 (annex hotel) which was spacious, and with access to garden to rear of hotel. Comfy double bed with...

On arrival our room wasn't ready so immediately moved us into another room so we got to the Graduation on time! Rooms were amazing, very big and comfortable. We were accomodated in the building next door, this wasn't a problem. Location was brilliant, only...

There have been some negative reviews about this place but we couldn't fault it. The rooms were grand. Clean, warm and well serviced. Breakfast was delicious and the staff friendly and helpful. The owner might seem a bit gruff at first for a hotelier but he was lovely, helpful and accommodating. When I come back to Edinburgh I will definitely...

We have just returned from a four day trip here, stayed in room 3. The building itself is beautiful, Victorian house with large rooms that are in keeping with the style of the house, as far as bedrooms are concerned they are well appointed, beautifully decorated (and I don't believe our room was even one of the nicer rooms). Tea...

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.
