    « Great weekend away »

    Stayed one night at Ten Hill Place for a girls weekend away. We had two double rooms and breakfast incl. The rooms were really spacious and with great amenities, fresh milk, and other items that you could request to be sent to your room. The breakfast was lovely, buffet style but with your eggs cooked as you liked them in front of you so not left lying around for ages. Ideal location, just a short walk into the town centre for the christmas market and just a few minutes to the Royal Mile. Great location and firendly staff, the overnight reception were really firendly when we came in at 1am after our night out and good criac!

    « Sleep and slop »

    Fabulous reception staff, friendly with a welcome bit of humour! Fabulous room, bright plenty surfaces for my "stuff". En suite was spacious and shower was hot and strong. My only criticism of the room was no plug sockets close to bed, so snooze function was ruled out! Breakfast however was not so good. I checked out before breakfasting and then couldn't remember my room no. The two staff had a 3 minute convert a ion about serving me before I walked the 4 paces to the reception desk and asked. The cereals selection was basic but adequate took a minute or two to check ingredients on my slightly unusual allergy but they did so with good grace. The hot food was abissmal I was down for 7am all the cooked breakfast stuff was already out despite no other diners in the room. Wrinkled sausages, congealed fat on the bacon, dry looking black pudding and haggis, tired baked beans and slimy mushrooms but the already cooked fried eggs (about 10 of them) and the already cooked poached eggs (slightly less) took the proverbial biscuit! When I asked for a fried egg the waiter went to "reheat" a congealed already cooked egg in a pan of hot oil. I politely refused and insisted on a freshly cooked egg, took one wrinkled tepid sausage and had a fight with the toaster which hadn't been set up correctly so every slice of toast put in just rolled round and disappeared . . Bermuda toaster! Such a shame as the rest of the standards were high.

    « Great staff and location! »

    The staff was very helpful and knowledgeable; our room was comfortsble, clean and quiet. Liked that the hotel was conscientious of ways they can be more eco-friendly. Overall, would recommend Ten Hill Place.

    « Great hotel, great location »

    Great hotel located close to main attractions and in a quiet place. We have spent 4 nights there. The staff was extremely Nice and helpfull. Everything is really clean. Definately great value! We are coming back in Edinburgh this summer, we will Definately choose again the 10 hill hotel! Thanks

    « Fantastic »

    Great room - very clean, comfortable. Great breakfast. Nice staff, very helpful. Well located for most things, not to mention the RCS which is literally a minutes walk. The train station is only a short taxi ride away.

    « Second Time Lucky »

    I originally visited TenHill Place and had an experience that ruined my stay. Luckily the management stood true to their offer a free return, which I finally accepted. We both enjoyed our room (217) which is a corner room and therefore has two windows. The only niggling point is that my wife could not have enough to put her make up on as the windows did not shed their light directly onto the desk/mirror. Otherwise, should you stay here, take note that it is a nice quite location to base yourselves from. The hotel is down a quite side street so no main road traffic and night revellers noises. You will have to walk ten minutes to get into the thick of old Edinburgh. Pay for the Breakfast if it is not in your rate, its a real delight and sets you off first thing in the morning. Look out for the queues when trying to get toast made as it the co-location between to the chefs egg cooking station and the cold meats /cheese platters makes for an interesting jostling of positions. The reception staff are pleasant and the night "crew/porter" a gem first thing if you want a take out coffee or tea for that early dawn walk to wake you up. If you have kids, look to stay in the bar area as there are comfy, clean tables and many board games to choose from. Nice atmosphere in the bar.

    « Comfortable but not quite four-star standard »

    We stayed for three nights in a deluxe double room. The room was spacious and clean, the bed comfortable, and the location quiet. There was plenty of storage space, a sensibly placed mirror and desk and an ironing and ironing board in the room. The cleaning service was very good each day. The only problem was with the voile curtains, one of which was stained - probably just with paint or varnish, but this looked quite dirty and unsightly. The main problem with our room was that the shower could not be made to run at an acceptable temperature - even at its 'coldest' it was unbearably hot; you had to turn the bath-tap on at the same time to make it warm rather than hot. We did report this problem but nothing seemed to happen, and we weren't informed about progress (if any) in fixing it. Breakfast was adequate but not what I'd expect from a four star hotel. Top marks for providing plain yoghurt and 'build your own' muesli, but the selection of cold cuts and cheese was limited and not the very best quality. The hot food was a buffet and therefore (apart from the haggis, which was very good and doesn't suffer from sitting around) obviously not as good as cooked to order. The staff were very friendly and the facilities were fine; I just think a four star hotel in London, say, is typically better.

    « A hotel of quiet charm »

    Stayed here last weekend. As we were in Edinburgh for the purpose of going to the Festival Theatre, this hotel proves to be ideally situated, being just five minutes walk from the theatre. It makes rushing to catch the last train home late in the evening a thing of the past for my wife and me. Good rooms, air-conditioned, and extremely comfortable beds. We chose to have dinner out after the performance, at an excellent Italian Restaurant just across the road from The Theatre. But again, a short six minute walk saw us back in the hotel and cosied in for the night. An excellent breakfast set us up for the journey home. Not the first time we have stayed here and most certainly it will not be the last.

    « Classy comfort »

    Room was very comfortable and well furnished. Staff helpful and attentive making our stay relaxed and untroubled. Given the up to date interior it is a pity that, because of the height of the dresser relative to the electrical socket it was impossible to plug in the kettle without moving the furniture out from the wall. Also the shower control took a lot of fiddling to adjust pressure and temperature. Would have got a 5 but for these niggles.

    « Quality and value for money! »

    We had an excellent three night stay, the room was very clean and we liked the additional touches e.g.: bottled water, hot chocolate, shortbread etc. The bed was very comfy and the room was spacious and modern. The breakfast was included in the price we paid (£250) which was much better value than some budget hotels we'd looked at near to the royal mile and there was a lot on offer in the cold and hot buffet. The hotel was in a good location and we managed to walk from Waverley train station, there are many steps, be warned. It was an added bonus that the hotel was on a side street off the main road so that it was much quieter than expected. I would definitely stay here again.

    « Decent business standard hotel »

    Central, clean and fairly priced hotel. Friendly and efficient check in/out. Limited on site parking which one can book for the stay on arrival for £15/night or they have an arrangement at a near by car park. Rooms were comfortable, clean and quiet. Tea and coffee making facilities with shortbread. Hairdryer and other accessories available along with the usual toiletries. Only a shower in the standard rooms, but decent pressure and heat. Good standard of cooked and continental breakfast, with take out roll and coffee if you're in a rush for an additional fee. Friendly and efficient service at breakfast. One criticism would be that the bathroom door was semi-opaque. It let the light into the room which was annoying if staying as a couple and one of you gets up to use the loo early in the morning! That said would happily stay again and recommend to others for a comfy, clean, fuss free stay!

    « There was an exercise bike in my room! »

    I booked this hotel for a short stay - my room was a 5th-floor Junior Suite, so I had plenty of room to relax. I arrived before the normal check-in time, but was advised that the room was ready, so that was good. The complimentary champagne that was delivered shortly afterwards was a pleasant surprise. The hotel staff were without exception most professional and welcoming (thanks for everything, guys) and I commend their efficiency in all things. The hotel itself is on a quiet street off Nicolson Street, about 5 minutes' walking time from the Royal Mile. One thing about Edinburgh, though - it's built on more hills than Rome, so eat a good breakfast and wear proper walking shoes. I like to walk a lot when I visit cities, however after a day exploring the castle I had to admit defeat - the following day I practically lost the power of my legs, so I took a tour by bus to see parts of the city that I otherwise would not have, and still didn't manage to do it all. I'll just have to go back again some day - but I know a good hotel... As for the exercise bike? We agreed to ignore each other... :)

    « Okay trip »

    The hotel was off a quiet street in Edinburgh - not too far from the shops and made my tourist endeavours very easy.Its in a central location and that's a plus - the staff were quite accommodating for the most part - the room was too cold for me so they gave me an extra heater ?. Down points - the wardrobe was quite worn and a bit damaged - this was not repaired during my stay and I did ask for a sewing kit at one point - reception said they would assist but no one ever came :-(.... Just to end off on a good point the bed was really comfortable , view from my room was quite nice - I had one of these superior rooms ?

    « The fitzsimons »

    Amazing hotel loved every second of our stay would definately go back again in April, had a lovely meal at the mother of India Indian restaurant best I have ever tasted love Edinburgh rooms were amazing staff great breakfast amazing we had haggis for breakfast overall just great only downside was it wasn't a double bed it was two singles pushed together and two single quilts

    « Value for money »

    It was a great location and value for money nice clean hotel. Staff was friendly and the breakfast range was of a good selection to suit most needs. I would definitely return again. The room was of a good size.

    « Awesome Location and Professional Staff »

    Our first ever stay in Dublin and we were so glad to have chosen this place. The room was clean, user friendly, and had a great view. The desk staff were most helpful. The on site restaurant had good prices but the portions left us a bit hungry. We enjoyed being on a quiet street within walking distance of many pubs and restaurants. People were very friendly to us. Would also recommend taking advantage of the Hop on Hop off buses. They were an excellent way of giving us options for later in the day.

    « good location »

    Staff were friendly, except for the one lady in the breakfast area. Breakfast way overpriced. Better to eat out but there are plenty of places in the area. Good location to see the sights of Edinburgh or catch a tour

    « Fantastic stay »

    Stayed in the hotel for 2 nights while visisting Edinbugh and everything was perfect The staff were amazingly helpful very courteous and knowledgable about the area The location was brilliant for exploring the hoolyrood area and various museums The room was spotless and the breakfast was one of the best I have had Can't wait to return

    « Pleasant Stay »

    Very close to city centre and all amenities. Very friendly staff at reception area. One of the most clean hotels I stayed in ages. Checking-In and Out was a very smooth process considering the time we had to settle in and leave.

    « Well situated hotel Very clean and lovely interior. Staff were helpful and welcoming »

    Excellent food at restaurant We had breakfast Good options and also some specialty dishes Enjoyed the Jazz pianist in the lounge in the evening with a drink. Reception staff were friendly Relaxing place to stay. Happy to recommend. Will definitely return

    « Fab hotel »

    Just spent a weekend in Edinburgh, we stayed in ten hill place hotel, it was absolutely fabulous, beautiful big spacious room, spotless clean, special thanks to George in the restaurant who looked after us really well at breakfast time, he was very attentive, also a special thanks to Robert who kept us supplied with Edinburgh gin (delicious by the way) when we came back for our nightcap. Location was excellent, only a five minute walk from the Royal mile. Cannot wait to go back, would highly recommend this hotel .

    « Business trip to Edinburgh »

    Hotel is excellent, rooms are large, staff are very efficient and attentive, good food available in restaurant and bar. Location is on the south side of the Royal Mile but ideally situated for walking and sit seeing

    « Pension conference »

    Had an overnight stay hotel staff very friendly and helpful breakfast was buffet style wide variety of choices and I high standard hotel situated in a quiet location but easy walking distance to royal mile area with a wide selection of restaurants and bars to enjoy

    « It is, exactly, what it says it is »

    This is a small, modern and unpretentious hotel, centrally situated in the "old town" of Edinburgh. Currently, the hotel is lucky enough to boast the most genuinely knowledgeable, pleasant and helpful personel I have recently encountered in Scotland. That said, however, all were "foreign". Experience tells us that nowadays polite, "Scottish", well-trained and local staff who are not too intrusive and over-familiar, are hard to find, so this is very refreshing, encouraging and welcome. The staff at the hotel are, in fact, an absolute delight to encounter at all levels. This in itself recommends the hotel as a good place to stay in Edinburgh (perhaps especially for English guests) and, I believe, also indicates the future of the tourist industry in Scotland. Otherwise, the hotel was very clean and well-appointed within its category.

    « Memorable for the right reasons »

    Three night stay , have only good things to say. Modern and comfortable hotel , staff very helpful and accommodating , room comfortable , breakfast excellent and vicinity 10- 15 minutes from Royal Mile We will definitely return

    « Loved it »

    I would definitely stay at this hotel again. Great location, lovely rooms, good options for breakfast. It was very clean the food in the bar was also good. The hotel offered a range of optional extras for additional cost although I didn't take them up on any of these!

    « Good Stay , Good Experience »

    Stayed here for two nights. The room is clean and is just the right size for the both of us. The hotel is situated at 10 Hill Place and is about 10 mins walk to the Main Street, The Royal Mile. Price of the hotel is considered affordable given its location. There are two convenience stores (Tesco Express & Sainbury Local) nearby which is about 5-8mins walk. The nearest to the hotel is Tesco Express. Staff is friendly and housekeeping provides good and clean service. Overall, a good 2-nights stay for the both of us.

    « Good breakfast »

    Stayed here for one night for a conference next door at the Royal College. Rooms are modern and comfortable although the bathroom fittings were starting to show their age and need replacing. The room we stayed overlooked the building across the street, so not much of a view or privacy so had to keep the curtains closed. Bed was comfortable enough but the best bit is the full Scottish breakfast with Haggis!!! Bad for your health but tasty. Will stay here again if in the vicinity.

    « Wonderful Hotel in Edinburgh »

    A wonderful hotel in the center of Edinburgh with caring staff. I have stayed in many other hotels in Edinburgh and this is definitely the best. It is also well located for meetings at the University of Edinburgh.

    « Splendid convenient for city centre. »

    Ten Hill Place was chosen for its proximity to Edinburgh's city centre and Waverley railway station. The staff were splendid. The room was fine. Some early morning external noise. Not too troubling. I'm a light sleeper. Restaurant meals, dinner in particular, were excellent. If it's on do try the grouse and tarte tatin. The portions were, for us, ample. I would suggest using public transport to get to Edinburgh. The hotel has very little parking available. It's only a ten minute walk from the station and there's plenty of taxis/buses to get around should you so wish. We walked.

    « Lovely Hotel !!! »

    Great hotel with great rooms and attentive staff. The rooms were spacious ,spot less and well equipped.Free wi-fi. Location was also decent.It had everything you could ask for. It was nice to know that Ten Hill Place Hotel is owned by the Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh and all profits go back into training surgeons worldwide.

    « What a place and staff »

    We were real lucky to stay. The staff was amazing and accommodating. Thee best place in Scotland and I am not kidding. The facilities were spotless and everything functioned. First place I have stayed that didn't make us wait until late afternoon to check in. We had been awake about 30 hours traveling from the states.

    « Superb independent hotel »

    Really impressed by this independently owned and run hotel, specially like that the profits go back into the studies and research at the University College of surgeons. The staff were very helpful and they seem to focus on providing guests with the best service. Breakfast was very good and served until midday. The 10 Bar has an excellent choice of fine wines and whiskies and great to see the wines in display cases with full descriptions and information. Loved this hotel in every way would thoroughly recommend staying here.

    « Staying at 10 Hill Place Hotel Edniburgh »

    First class stay - hotel and room were excellent and clean. The staff were very helpful and friendly and the food was very good. I would recommend this hotel to anyone planning a trip to Edinburgh. You will not be disappointed!

    « A nice cosy hotel with great staff »

    I booked this hotel for a surprise night away for my Husbands birthday. I contacted the hotel in advance to mention this. We arrived early and were greated by a very warm welcome at reception. we left our bags whilst we went out for the day and returned a few hours later to find ours luggage had been taken to our room and our roo had been upgraded to a suit. My husband received a birthday card and complementary chocolates wishing him a happy birthday. our room also had an exercise bike in for our use if we required (We didn't!!) Overall the staff were excellent and more than happy to assist with any enquiries. Thank you Ten Hill Place for taking such good care of us.

    « Vacation in Edinburgh »

    Very nice, mid-level hotel. Conveniently located in Old Town Edinburgh. Good breakfast with a large selection. The room size was comfortable for a several night stay. The staff was pleasant and helpful. Did not have any features that were terribly unique, but the room was nicely decorated and the bathroom spacious.

    « Well Located and Helpful Staff »

    We stayed five nights in an eight week holiday. I think this hotel is fine for a weekend get away or conference stay but not the best for a long stay. The reason for saying that is related to the size of the rooms- which are quite small. Having said that I cannot fault the professional and very helpful staff. The hotel is very clean and well located to all the attractions. The breakfast which we included in our package was just adequate. If you had to pay don't bother and go down the street for better value. I really don't like cooked eggs sitting in food warmers when for little effort they can be made on order.

    « City Break for business and pleasure »

    Hotel staff are excellent and more than helpful. Rooms provided everything you needed but not big. Could have done with an overhaul. Breakfast /parking was overrated for cost. Out of the centre but quiet. Did like the fact that you did not have to have an early exit out of the room.

    « Weekend in Edinburgh »

    Ten Hill Place was a nice hotel which was a sort distance, approximately 1 mile, from major Edinburgh attractions. The front desk services were very good. The breakfast staff were very professional. The Hotel was quite and the room comfortable, which was great for sleeping.

    « One night visit for a Seminar »

    Excellent hotel and just next to the Venue I was attending. Very Central in Edinburgh, clean and tidy, lovely room. Breakfast was very nice although £14.75 is pricey although kids do eat free with this deal. Staff were excellent and could not be more helpful.

    « Outstanding customer service team »

    Brilliant stay in an amazing city. The guest services team, were amazing, they arranged a meal out, sorted taxis...the service we received was above what we'd expect. The rooms were lovely, clean, quiet and relaxing

    « Cannot praise highly enough »

    Hotel is in a great location with easy access to all attractions and amenities. Hotel is well equipped with a personal feel and well equipped rooms ... All mod cons and excellent attention to details. Staff are fantastic! Lots of local knowledge and recommendations. Friendly, welcoming and genuine.

    « Good location for sightseeing »

    We stayed for a few days, location ideal for seeing the sights, within walking distance of all main attractions, the castle, royal mile, Hollyrood house... Hotel was clean and tidy and the staff very friendly, breakfast was a buffet style and a good variety of options to choose from. We would stay there again if in the city in future, a really memorable experience and highly recommended.

    « Long weekend in Edinburgh »

    Excellent hotel excellent location.good food though breakfast a bit pricey. Very friendly staff would recommend enthusiastically. Rooms were smaller than they looked on website but still fine.the location really makes this hotel though,two minutes from the festival theatre.

    « Good location, ok service »

    We stayed for 5 nights in late September 2016. The hotel is really well located. The room was ok (smallish bed that was really hard), but the service was not great. There was a mix up about getting our room done (I left at 1pm one day, that was too late to get the room done), ask for extra toilet paper on our way out to dinner, had to call the reception when we got back... Just not impressed.

    « weekend in Edinburgh »

    This hotel is well placed to see all the sights in Edinburgh,we had a classic room on the third floor it was not that big but big enough it had 2 chairs and a desk with a chair,the bed is comfortable and a good size, the bathroom is good and clean with shower over bath,for some reason the bathroom door is of glass with broad stripes of frosted glass but also has narrow stripes of clear glass bit embarrassing at times if someone is on the toilet and you happen to pass the door. the breakfast is really good with plenty of choice hot or cold,the staff are always helpful. the room we had overlooked a courtyard the windows are sash windows and are not double glazed but the hotel is set down a side street and not very much noise. One thing i must say that other reviews state that the hotel is a short walk from the train station, its not, it should take about 15mins and it is up hill and the time of day we arrived 3pm in the afternoon at the station and by the time you can get across the roads full of busy traffic and start to walk up the hill (mountain) and you have to dodge around people coming in the opposite direction to you and your pulling a suitcase behind you it will take you longer,how much longer i do not know that by the time we checked in and went to our room we were worn out and just sat down. but going back to the station will take 15mins as its down hill and every one else is now going in your direction.

    « stay in Edinburgh »

    We enjoyed the room at the Ten Hill Place and the friendliness of the staff. The front desk staff and the concierge were very helpful. The breakfast was also complete with all the amenities for a good breakfast.

    « So lovely - just perfect »

    This hotel is exactly what you hope for in a hotel. It is really convenient to Old Town Edinburgh, and on a quiet side street. I never heard traffic noise or street noise. The staff were so nice. The room was quiet & comfortable & clean. I was travelling alone and felt very safe walking alone even at night. I loved it so much I tried to change my reservation at another hotel so I could stay longer. I will stay here again when I come back. Simply a wonderful place to stay.

    « One night stopover »

    I visited here for one night on a business trip. It's a great location, very central, rooms are clean and to a high standard. Prices for rooms might seem high, but not really for Edinburgh IMHO. The staff are also really friendly and accommodating. Breakfast which is a buffet style is first class. Of course being right in the centre of Edinburgh is a major bonus!

    « Perfect for us »

    This hotel was selected for its proximity to Edinburgh Castle and other sites in the city, and it was perfect. It's on a small side street and is modern and attractive. The rooms are spacious and although restaurant breakfast was a bit sparse but fine for us. Best of all was the customer service - we had a problem with our flight the next day and the front desk representative, Mark, spent a ton of time helping me figure it out. Greatly appreciated and on return visits we will stay here again.

    « Very good overall experience. Very convenient location, quiet, spacious rooms and clean. »

    Conveniently located, within walking distance of the old town, shops, pubs, etc. Spacious room and bathroom, excellent bed, fabulous breakfast buffet. Could improve reception personnel quality. Would certainly reccommend. A few parking spaces available at a cost.

    « Great location next to the university »

    I chose to stay at Ten Hill Place as my usual corporate hotel was fully booked. The greeting on arrival was friendly, and the room is compact but adequate. It's best feature is the proximity to the university - just around the corner.

    « Ideal stay »

    This place was perfect! Good sized room with a large shower and and all customary amenities. Very clean and modern. Near to the action but still discreet. Wonderful breakfast. Very competent and helpful staff. What's not to like! Will use this again as it was excellent value . Thoroughly enjoyed it .

    « Tidy new hotel »

    Nice king bed. Lots of seating and space. Big tub and very comfy shower. Staff helpful with our lost luggage. Breakfast was expensive, 15 pounds each, but tasty. Rooms on the west upper floors have a view of the Salisbury Crags. Holyrood Park is 5 minutes away and offers terrific running. Very quiet. We would be happy to return here

    « Great hotel nice location »

    Spot on, can't find any fault. Stayed for 2 nights for a wedding. Location is very central. Rooms well decorated, modern and a good size. Staff were helpful and friendly. I would stay again if visiting Edinburgh.

    « Weekend in Edinburgh »

    Booked this hotel and planned to propose to my girlfriend. Told the hotel management about my plans and they helped with setting the room up with rose petals and champagne for us on arrival. Later found out that they also upgraded us to a superior rooms free of charge. The room was outstanding with great views and a very comfortable king size bed. The hotel could not of been any better and would not hesitate to stay here again and recommend it to anybody else. Thank u to all staff in hotel for making it as perfect as I wanted it to be

    « Good location short walk from the centre of Edinburgh »

    Lovely quiet hotel set back from the busy main road, in a square surrounded by residential properties and the Royal College of surgeons buildings. It took about 10 minutes to walk into the centre of Edinburgh and was slightly uphill, but totally manageable. We walked to all the main sites - Holyrood House, parliament buidling, Castle, Royal Mile, a trip to Britannia was really worthwhile taking the bus down to the port. Bedroom and bathroom were very clean and a decent size. Staff were friendly and helpful. Would recommend staying here.

    « Excellent Hotel »

    We really enjoyed our stay at your Hotel. The location was outstanding, the front desk helpful, and your Scottish breakfast was a great start to our day. Your Restaurant manager was very personable and enjoyed chatting with him in the morning. All in all, it was a perfect choice for my wife and I.

    « Rating of Ten Hill Place »

    We were very pleased with the room, the service, the location and the restaurant. Everyone treated us very, very well. The complimentary breakfast was the best ever! Everything was great! Within walking distance to everything we wanted to see. We would definitely stay there again and recommend the Ten Hill Place to anyone traveling to Edinburgh.

    « Good hotel for Fringe »

    This is a good modern hotel right in the middle of Edinburgh and convenient for most of the festival. and also for the Royal College of Surgeons Museum which is well worth a visit. Rooms are large and wll done but as with most hotels in Edinburgh the rates are three times normal in August.

    « Excellent hotel experience. »

    The hotel is close to the University of Edinburgh. The rooms are very comfortable and quiet. Best part of the hotel is the staff. Each member of the team was friendly and accommodating. Would definitely stay here again.

    « Great location and comfortable room »

    Our stay at the Ten Hill Hotel was very pleasant. After some confusion of getting the right room that we booked.....no fault of the hotel front desk......our 48 hour stay was very nice. The room was a very nice size and had everything we needed. We had a small refrigerator to keep snacks and water cold...bathrobes and slippers. Very comfortable bed and large bathroom with towel warmer, tub and shower combo....There really was not anything else we needed.. It is a great location ....easy to get to many of the sights to see. We highly recommend getting the hop on/ hop off tour and be sure to sign up for all four bus combo...which will get you all over the city. The Waverley Station on Princess street is where you go to get the ticket ....The information centre is there as well...and they were very informative. There are many combinations of how to purchase tickets to get around the entire city. For dinner we ate at The Mitre and enjoyed the Scottish specialties....also the Advocate Pub....... Great atmosphere ........ Had a bit of rain ....but that is to be expected at this time of year. Always carry an umbrella and wear a really good pair of walking shoes.....Edinburgh Castle is also a must see and we spent at least three hours going through it...very interesting if you like lots of historical information. We loved it!!!! The castle is easily reached by getting off one of the stops on the red hop on/off buses.

    « Nice Quiet Place close to everything »

    We stayed here during the August bank holiday when the town was packed. It is really close to everything but was up a quiet alley where it was not in the constant noise of the crowds. The room was small but very clean. The staff was very helpful and I would have no problem staying there next time I return to Edinburgh

    « Super stay! »

    I stayed only one night at Ten Hill Place whilst visiting Edinburgh for the Tattoo. What a lovely hotel! Super room, food and staff. Very friendly and helpful. It is also within walking distance of all attractions. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this hotel to friends/family. I shall certainly stay again.

    « Very comfortable hotel in a good location »

    I stayed one night, before attending an event at the Royal College of Surgeons, which owns the hotel and is located opposite. The room was spacious, with a comfortable bed and a good shower. I enjoyed macaroni cheese in the bar area in the evening.

    « Brilliant »

    Lovely hotel. Brilliant staff and wonderful room. Would recommend. Breakfast was excellent. Spotlessly clean. Will visit again. Situated in a very pretty part of the city. Very near to all places of interest. Could not have asked for a better weekend stay.

    « First time here and a good decision »

    My wife and I have our favorite splurge Edinburgh hotel but a trip with other family members necessitated looking for another option. Ten Hill Place turned out to be an excellent choice. It's a good value with nice rooms in a very quiet location about a 7-8 minute walk from the Royal Mile. The breakfast may become redundant if you stay for too long (and avoid the coach groups if possible) but the food was to a high standard and very tasty. We did have to wait to check in given our morning arrival but our luggage was safely stored and we were just five minutes from The Museum of Scotland. It would be easy to return here.

    « Clean friendly and efficient »

    We needed a central place to stay for a few days for the Fringe and this fitted the bill perfectly . Efficient and helpful service ; clean rooms and comfortable beds We didn't use it but the bar looked well stocked the wine list excellent A good place to stay

    « Great Staff Made it a Great Visit »

    The hotel staff was amazing, reason enough to book again. They went out of their way to be helpful and even fed my parking meter for me. The room was very nice and clean. The location was great, close to the castle and other activities. I would definitely stay here again.

    « Hidden secret »

    Stayed more than a dozen times over the last year due to work trips. Usually no more than 4 days at a time. Really friendly staff, peaceful, quiet and awesomely located. The decoration is modern and the rooms comfortable. 1st choice whenever I need to look for a place, book in advance in case you're visiting during the Fringe.

    « Perfect! »

    Staff all very helpful, efficient and friendly. Perfect location for all things central in Edinburgh. Room lovely - bed v comfy and bathroom super. Everything we needed was provided and anything else we asked for instantly received. Wifi reliable and easy.

    « Great visit »

    We stayed here for 2 nights during The Fringe. Mike, the guy that works the desk at night was incredibly helpful and went above and beyond to ensure our parking situation was good. The rooms are clean and the staff friendly. The restaurant is good too.

    « Great room, APPALLING manager, average breakfast. »

    My girlfriend and I travelled to Edinburgh for the Fringe. We had a late check in around 11.30pm and received outstanding service from the night manager. He also explicitly said that he had included breakfast for us - a nice gesture. However once we came down for breakfast the next morning, we encountered Mark, the manager at reception - he wears a grey suit and has tattoo on his neck. We told him we would like to check out but he rudely told us to have breakfast first. We were travelling with 3 large pieces of luggage and asked to store them before heading out for the day - Mark rudely cut us off and said he could not store more than 2 items. Not the sort of service you'd expect from a four star hotel. Dissatisfied, we agreed. When he came to tag the luggage he coldly brushed passed my girlfriend with no regard for her whatsoever. During our breakfast, a staff member gave us a bill for £30. Surprised (as the night manager had said it was included), we queried it but were told twice that it wasn't included with the room. Having lost our appetite at the interruptions, we went back to reception and (thankfully) spoke to a helpful lady who apologised and waived the bill. Nonetheless, the room was great if a little dusty. We received a poor service with our bags (both storing and bringing them to the room) and the breakfast was average (definitely not worth £30!!). Management appears a little disorganised with poor communication between staff members - not surprising as Mark, the manager, seemingly struggles to manage himself.

    « Nice place to stay »

    A Nice and clean room, the bed was big and wonderful, the bathroom was excellent breakfast was delicious, Continental and scottish breakfast. Not much place for car parking. the 4th floor was very quiet

    « A little gem tucked away in the City centre »

    A very comfortable hotel tucked away an easy walk to the Royal Mile. The rooms are sizeable, large enough to spread-out in, the decoration bright though easy on the eye. The buffet breakfast is a feast: full or continental, English or Scottish. Ideally placed for attending the Edinburgh International and Fringe Festivals, we found Ten Hill Place to be an isle of tranquility to retreat to after the crowds on the streets. (Note that there is no car park, but then you don't need a car in Edinburgh.)

    « Driving? - Read this »

    We arrived at this hotel after a long drive and navigating the streets of Edinburgh for the first time only to find that there was no car parking. Apparently, the hotel only has 6 car spaces and these are on "a first come first served" basis. To my disbelief they then proceeded to offer a photocopied map to a car park several streets away. I raised my concern with the desk clerk and also the manager who seemed they could not care less. They offered to store our luggage whilst I went off in search of the car park, which costs £14.50 per 24 hours. After walking back to the hotel in the rain the desk clerk told me that the manager had offered 10% off the parking fees as compensation. I should add that we were paying nearly £550 for our two night stay, already overpriced and now we could add another thirty pounds in parking to the costs. I told the clerk that the 10% off was an insult and they could keep it. So if driving be prepared to park some distance from the hotel and to pay £15 per day for the privilege. To be fair the rest of our stay in the hotel was probably more of a four star experience. Our room was spacious, clean with all the amenities that you might expect, except there was no minibar and although the wifi was free it was quite unstable and sending emails seemed to be a problem. The staff in the restaurant and at reception were friendly and helpful. The hotel is ideally located for much of the Festival activities, particularly the festival fringe, but would probably not stay here again if given the choice.

    « Didn't feel at all 4 Star. »

    We were disappointed with this hotel, given the price it charges. The service at reception, for example, was fine, but there was no greeting or even a smile as you passed every day. The breakfast was standard for the price, with nothing to "write home about" although the service in the restaurant was much warmer and more friendly than at reception. Our room was large and comfortable, but with a view over a brick wall and, a sort of tired feel to it. - Maybe we should have asked for a room at the front? Lovely bathroom. The best thing was the location, quiet, but near the old town, easy walking to Grassmarket and the Festival theatre, for example.

    « Sunday night stay »

    Good deluxe room on 5th floor, with everything we needed, although the docking station was not quite the fit we needed for Nano. Liked the bathroom and plenty of toiletries / towels. Very comfortable bed and no street noise at night, even though room was front facing. Breakfast was good, plenty to eat and poached egg made to order. Black pudding too dried up but the haggis was excellent, so good overall. Staff were all attentive without being over the top. Given location and price this hotel is excellent value for money and we will return again.

    « Great end to a 2 week trip »

    We ended our Scotland trip with three nights in the Ten Hill Place. It is located in a city near and quiet side street in Edinburgh. The Restaurant has an excellent menue and super Service, plus the Bar and bartender have an excellent selection and Knowledge of Whiskey, which we partook of ! The staff were friendly and very helpful whatever we asked or needed +++++. I would love to stay here again.

    « Business trip »

    Ten Hill place is a smart hotel just 5 minutes walk away from the Royal Mile. The rooms are spacious and clean (a little too much furniture maybe), stylish bathrooms and the wardrobe space is fantastic. We were surprised to get availability in the middle of "fringe" but we haven't been disappointed and will come again for business use.

    « Ten Hill Place »

    We stayed 9 nights here. The third floor room was not facing the street and was very quiet. We could see the Crags from our room, which helped show the weather conditions! The air conditioner worked well. We arrived around 8:30 am and were able to check our bags in. We came back around 1, and although checkin wasn't until 3, our room was ready. The surrounding area felt very safe. Many attractions are close by and well within walking distance, including the Royal Mile. We took the Airlink bus from the airport (9 pounds for two) to Waverly Street Bridge, then a taxi for 5 pounds to the hotel - it is well within walking distance but we didn't want to carry our luggage. The staff was very professional and helpful. Note to US travelers - no washcloths are available - that is more of a UK custom. Also,two separate times we arranged for a wake up call and their wakeup system did not work, no call. We would stay here again. The free wifi worked very well as our US Cellular phones didn't work in Scotland.

    « Bright, fresh hotel in historic Edinburgh »

    Pleasant surprise to find such a modern hotel in the old part of Edinburgh within walking distance to the main attractions. Great rooms and very comfortable. Parking available for the car. Professional staff.

    « Slainte Show - Amazing »

    My friend and I went to see the Slainte show tonight - we loved it!! Fantastic four-course dinner and wine - lovely soup, delicious haggis, tender chicken and a lovely, light cranachan for pudding. The performers were all excellent, we loved the show - particularly the highland dancers. We'll be back! #recommended

    « Great find, perfect for our city break »

    We visited Ten Hill Place in April '16 for my husband's birthday. We travelled to Edinburgh by plane and took the Airlink bus into town and then walked to the hotel (or you can take another bus) Location is on a quiet street. We got a great rate for our 2 night stay so half wondered what we were going to but it was lovely! Staff very friendly and accommodating. Our room was amazing for the price! Very clean and well maintained. We didn't eat breakfast here as we felt it was quite expensive, instead we ate at City Restaurant for a lovely Scottish fry up (on Nicolson St) both mornings. It was a relatively good base for exploring, we usually walked sometimes taking the bus depending on what we wanted to see. There's a nice little bar in the hotel where we enjoyed drinks. We would highly recommend this hotel especially for the price we paid and would return should we come back to Edinburgh.

    « Great location and charming hotel »

    This was our first stop on our trip in Scotland, and what a great way to start. The location is right in the heart of Edinburgh, close enough to walk to all of the historic and touristy spots, but far enough away to be quaint and quiet. Run by the Royal College of Surgeons, it's around the corner from that museum which is also fascinating. The room was clean, well-lit, well-appointed, and spacious, even by American standards. Would definitely recommend and would stay again given the chance.

    « Good choice »

    I stayed here for 3 days in mid July and found the hotel to be welcoming and the rooms clean and well serviced. The staff were very friendly and responded to any request quickly and with a smile. The additional charge for breakfast that we were allowed to add was not the best offer but a staff member suggested we do not buy it as their were too many tour guests expected at the same time. This information was appreciated and made us want to come back to enjoy the lounge. The location for tourists is also very efficient and safe. I can highly recommend this hotel, thank you to the entire staff.

    « short sweet stay »

    stayed there with my husband and little daughter for a short stay in Edinburgh. this hotel is right next to old town. a few mins walk away. located in a quiet location to ensure a good night sleep. room was spacious. even with an extra bed for our daughter there was lots of room left. bathroom was equally roomy. clean. got a view of the front of the hotel (the little patch of green). breakfast was delicious with quite a few choices. staff was polite and helpful. we really enjoyed our stay in this fabulous city.

    « Fab find »

    Fab hotel, arrived 11ish just to drop off luggage as we knew check in wasn't till 3pm - room was ready ! Bonus - bar was very relaxed at the end of a long day in the city. Rooms spacious and comfortable. Breakfast was delicious. Definitely return.

    « Great hotel »

    Very friendly, helpful staff. Great location. Would definately go back. Clean throughout, very quiet and very comfy beds, got a great night sleep. Food was also very good. Decor is fresh and modern and i would reccomend this hotel.

    « Lovely Hotel Very Near the Royal Mile »

    This is a modern hotel about 4 blocks from High St., making it very easy to get around, but it was on a side street, so there wasn't a lot of traffic going back and forth. When you reach High St., you are closer to the Castle end, probably about 1/4 mile from it's entrance. The lobby is small, but there is a wine bar right next to the reception desk, and there is a restaurant that serves breakfast and dinner on the other. We were on the ground level, so never had any reason to go above. Our room was small with little space to walk around the queen size bed. There were 2 small chairs and a square ataman, a rolling table with a TV on top and in an alcove, there was a desk. The bathroom had a deep tub and a shower above. There was little counter space, mostly a little area behind the toilet. The amount of space in the room and bathroom is typical of European hotels that are reasonably priced. It was very quiet inside and out. There was air conditioning, which was unusual for hotels in the UK, but could only be set so low, and we found it would be cooler if we left the window open, so the window by the bed was open the remainder of our stay, because once open, we couldn't get it to shut. The towels were large, but not very fluffy. There was one bar of soap, shampoo etc?You could ask for more if needed. We did request a top sheet for the bed and that was provided, no problem. The people here were very nice and welcoming and were quick to help with anything we asked for. I was nursing a sore knee and they brought ice to me every night. They were happy to order taxis for us and we were able to do this the night before. Breakfast each morning was good. There are plenty of hot and cold choices. You could ask for made to order fried or poached eggs. Services was quick and efficient. The restaurant was packed for breakfast each morning. We didn't have dinner at the hotel, but when we would return in the evening, we could see people eating there as well as people enjoying the wine bar.

    « Lovely »

    Stayed as a couple in early 30's. Gorgeous hotel. Reception staff polite. Didn't eat in the hotel but the menu looked delicious. Stayed in a deluxe King. Immaculate. Ample storage. Nice bathroom (shower over bath) and toiletries. Absolutely no complaints. No view. Only to side street. £5 taxi from train Waverley station - exit via market street. Or a ten minute walk uphill if you're feeling energetic :) We only stayed one night. Would visit again.
