              The decor and art. The helpfulness of staff. The quality of rooms, bedding furniture etc. The location, quiet but close to centre.

              The towels are thick and wonderful. The canopy bed is pretty.

              The lighting in the room is very, very bad. The bed was extremely soft and sunk in the middle -- needs to be replaced with something new! Walk to the hotel from major sites filled with so much construction/noise (this will end in 2012 and is not the hotel's fault I know, but it wasn't fun to walk through). Charged 2 pounds for the daily newspaper that they kindly offered to put by our door each day but was free in the lobby (never informed us of the charge at check-in). A different price at check-out than what was quoted on this site and in our confirmation.

            • Older travelers
              8.8

              We were met by a lovely young man at reception called Matt, who went out of his way to welcome us and "show us the ropes" We were delighted with our bedroom, with a large, very comfortable king-sized bed, spotlessly clean bathroom and with a view over the park. We couldn't get the tv to work, but within minutes the night manager appeared and soon sorted the problem out. The walk to Princess Street literally took us 10 minutes. The staff were most accommodating and friendly. We would definitely stay again, and would not hesitate to recommend the Bonham to our friends. A most enjoyable stay!

              We had two wonderful breakfasts, but on our last morning, we think something happened in the kitchen! The beautiful oats porridge beautifully cooked the previous breakfasts, was not cooked properly on that morning and the toast was burnt and cold, and in addition, the scrambled eggs, which were cooked to perfection the previous mornings, were cold and hard. We decided not to complain because we wanted to give the hotel the benefit of the doubt, as we had really enjoyed the previous breakfasts, rating it as one of the best we had had, and we are frequent travellers, so we have had many hotel breakfasts.

            • Older travelers
              5.4

              Good location away from the madness but close enough to the city centre for a 10 minute walk or 5 min taxi ride.

              There is something about the staff in this hotel that makes you think that you should be grateful to be there. Staff were busy at breakfast and didn't have much time to serve us .

            • Older travelers
              10.0

              We found the hotel very relaxing and in an ideal area, they upgraded us to a double standard room from a petite double room. The hotel is only a short walk away from the shopping/tourist locations central to Edinburgh. The staff were very willing to help you with any problems and offered advice on where to eat, although we found numerous places within a short distance. We would definitely come back here to stay.

            • Older travelers
              9.6

              superb service with the receptionist being extremely helpful

            • Group of friends
              10.0

              Beautiful room with fantastic views. Very confortable. Nice toiletries. Good breakfast. Pleasant staff

              The corridors leading to the rooms were quite twisty and therefore confusing.
