The Lairg provides charming Georgian town house accommodations, friendly service and free Wi-Fi. Surrounded by Haymarket’s bars and restaurants, Haymarket Train Station is a 2-minute walk away.
Score from 1255 reviews Very good
In the center of Edinburgh, the Motel One Edinburgh-Royal is a 5 minute walk from the train station, and only half a mile from the Castle. Guests can reach the historic St.

A 5-minute walk from Waverley Train Station, the Ibis Edinburgh Centre South Bridge provides centrally-located accommodations in the Old Town.
Score from 1693 reviews Excellent
In central Edinburgh, just over a quarter mile from Haymarket Train Station, this modern hotel provides a great value, with modern family-friendly rooms with private bathrooms and a restaurant-bar.

On day of arrival I was told that, while my friends will stay in the guest house, I will stay (for the first night) in another property down the road. This was the first time I was told of this - no previous communication. All of us were locked inside the second property and the manager had to come and unlock us. The plug connecting the TV and the kettle was a fire hazard. The cable was not long enough for the plug to reach the floor - instead, it was hanging in the air - meaning that a kettle full of water could easily fall and the water to be thrown all over the electrics. The waiting staff for breakfast make a lot of mistakes: toast and coffee are forgotten, for example. No toiletries in the alternative accomodation I had to stay on my first night.
The staff and breakfast choices and service were great. We also enjoyed being within walking distance to see all the sights without driving and parking our car.
Good location. Had a family room for four friends room had nice decor on a quiet rd close to pubs and a handful of restraints and takeaways. Nice cooked breakfast , tea and coffee refills. About a 20 minute walk into city centre or bus stop close by. Helpful staff
It was quiet.
My room was very small and not as clean as you would expect from an allergy proof b&b. Behind the bed it was dusty and it contained fabric curtains (which I am sure aren't washed on a regular basis). Luckily I am not that tall, but if you are taller than 1.75cm you will struggle to sleep comfortably. There was a window that I could open for a bit of air, but below is a conservatory where dinner is served and the smell of frying bacon entered my room if I opened the window. Way to expensive.
I loved this guesthouse, our room was in the main building with comfy bed, very spacious and even a walking wardrobe for our backpacks. Location was good and very close to the old town. The staffs were friendly and the breakfast was good and included in the rate. I would definitely stay again if I come to Edingburgh.
Comfortable bed, big and cosy room
+ location + breakfast + quiet + double (?) bed in single room, spacious + friendly staff
the breakfast is just okay
Location Confort Wifi
Stairs to get to room Other guests very noisy
Comfy bed. Good pillows. Good breakfast.
Horrible shower, broken bathroom door. Average wifi.
Location wasn't too far from centre meaning an acceptable 15-20 min walk Staff were reasonable
5 bed room was too small and ensuite bathroom was too small to move in without smashing into something. Ensuite door didn't shut properly Not the best value Breakfast nothing fancy
The owner was lovely & came to greet us in person during breakfast, he was very accommodating Only a 15 minute walk into the city centre
During the night it was very noisy you could hear all movements of the people staying in the room next to us & noisy pipes kept us awake also! The cooked breakfast was very poor
Breakfast menu layout could've been a bit clearer; I accidentally ordered the wrong breakfasts for us all!
The location was fantastic, especially for the Kings Theatre. Room was small but ample for an overnight stay and kept warm. Staff very helpful and friendly.
Two issues were the toilet wasn't good at flushing and security lights shining in our window from the yard to the rear.
Helpful staff. Beautiful old building and room, warm, spacious room and comfortable bed. Excellent wi fi. Good value breakfast and good value all round.
Inconsistent hot water. Noisy radio in breakfast room. New buildings obscure view of castle. Parking around the corner £15 not £10.
Location excellent. Breakfast quickly served. Serving staff smiley and helpful. Owner very pleasant.
For what I paid I don't feel complaining appropriate however....I would have liked a bedside light! Minor detail.
The owner of business very polite man nice to talk to him interested of people. Food ok.room nice and clean.
Small car park only for 3 cars ÷(
Good breakfast,tidy and neat,near a good chinese restaurant:a taste of china (沸腾鱼乡）
expect a larger room
The city centre is walking distance with a bus route practically outside the door too, staff were extremely friendly and helpful and the rooms stay warm through the night as well as during the day. Rooms are small but there's space enough for everything you need!
Bit of noise with other travellers at about 5am as walls are very thin, but didn't last long and not the hotel's fault!
Good location, nice breakfast and comfortable room
The radiator started doing funny loud sounds at 5.30 in the morning and when I went downstairs there was nobody I could talk to fix the problem. Also the heating was turned on by them, so it was up to them when and for how long you'll have it.
The bathroom was like a cupboard and i could not even bend over the sink to wash my face without the bathroom door opening. As a result of this the bathroom door would not stay shut whilst you were sitting on the toilet. The was no internet connection as stated and the water was cold when I went to shower. The bed was uncomfortable. We had to say in another annex across the rosd from the hotel which was not mentioned. When I complained to the owner he was most unhelpful. I would not recommend this hotel or stay there again
Very good breakfast, the size of the room and bed, the location
I ordered a taxi for the following early morning to the airport, which I was told would be done after breakfast as they were busy, only to go back early afternoon to confirm this and to find that it had not been booked. The person at the time did the booking herself, but it would have been very worrying if I had not checked earlier as I might have waited in vain and missed my flight. Other than that it was perfect for what I had paid.
Room is a bit small. With a slight smell.
comfortable close to city centre
