          6.6

          Location and price.

          Slightly shoddy room, noisy refurb work right outside my room.

        • Group of friends
          10.0

          The hotel staff made us very welcome and there was always someone around if we needed to speak to anyone. Our room was spacious with loads of wardrobe space. There was a lot of choice for breakfast and it was delicious. It was on the table 5 minutes after ordering. The hotel is convenient for the city centre (a few minutes on the bus) and is on a quiet street. I would certainly visit again.

          Actually stayed in the sister hotel, The Lairg next door. Hotel was comfortable, location was great for Murrayfield stadium, Haymarket station and Princes Street and the breakfast was good. Staff were helpful.

          Price, location, breakfast, free wifi

          Lack of desk in the room, wifi didn't work much the first 2 days, shower too hot

        • Group of friends
          5.0

          The breakfast was excellent - very fresh and plenty to eat.

          The hotel is undergoing major refurbishment just now and as such the main foyer is a mess with building equipment all over the place and dust everywhere. The rooms are badly in need of refurbishment however I feel that the hotel should be closed while this takes place, or at least guests should have been informed prior to booking so they could at least make an informed decision. The man who appeared to be the owner could have been friendlier.

        • Single

          Location. Prompt if uninspired cooked breakfast. Spring of parsley on the tomato, but poor quality ingredients.

          I suppose it was amusing watching the under-staffed Polish staff attempt to deal with customers from across Europe in Brocken English.

          I believe we should have been told the lace was under construction. Although in all honesty it did not interfere with our stay at all.

        • Couple
          8.8

          Excellent breakfast

          bed a bit creaky and on the top floor.

        • Single
          6.2

          The bed was firm but extremely comfortable and warm. It was easy to get a good night's sleep. All the staff I met were pleasant and efficient.

          The bathroom was kind of cold.

        • Older travelers
          5.4

          the room, cold, antiquated, musty.

        • Couple
          5.8

          THe hotel was under going refurbuishment and a new heating /hot water system being put in. This meant we had no heating and not water! a heater was put in the room but was inadiquate to do the job and we were very cold! the hot water worked in the morning but no cold water so you could not shower (be boiled) I do not think this is a far representation of the hotel but under the circumstance but we should of been informed / no heating / no water! so we could have mad other arrangements!

        • Single
          4.6

          It has a good location, short walk to the new town and with good bus connection to the old town and airport.

          There was no fully functional heating in the room - Boisdale Hotel never more in the winter. Very small bathroom.

        • Single
          8.2

          The size of the room, the cleanliness and the convenience of location and amenities around it.

          My room was too cold, even with the heating on.

        • Older travelers
          5.8

          Excellent breakfast and friendly staff. Good location with easy acess to public trtansport and all of the region.

          There was no heating in the room and because there was no double glazing, the noise from traffic onn the c obbled streets was disturbing.

        • Couple
          9.2

          The bed was very large and very good and the breakfast even better!! The walk to the centre was not too long and there was a bus stoop outside.If I return to Edinburgh I would stay there again.

          Some of the residents were noisy in the morning ( italians..) but this is rather out of the hotel's control... My wife was disappointed that there was no fridge in the room.
