Outstanding Restaurant, Small Rooms

Would recommend Wed, Apr 6, 2011
The Fraser Suites was designed within the constraints of the old building it occupies, and it does very well within the given constraints. Both the staff and the decor are high-class. The hotel restaurant is five-star! The room and common areas were beautifully decorated, and the room had a comfortable bed and good shower pressure. However, the room (because of the old building) was so small that you need to be very creative with storing luggage to be able to walk around without hazard. The location is excellent, a half block off the Royal Mile!

Dining

The Broadstreet Bistro restaurant at the hotel serves gourmet food that is fairly priced for the quality. The restaurant was so good, in fact, that I would recommend that non patrons of this hotel try the restaurant for an excellent meal. We had the braised shin of beef, horseradish mashed potatoes, and sweet roasted carrots; and the Scottish smoked salmon, poached salmon parfait, pickled beetroot, and dill crisp bread; and pan fried sea bass, parsnip puree, and roast potatoes. Everything was magnificent!

Certain reception staff horrible!

Would not recommend Wed, Feb 23, 2011
We dealt with [...]upon arriving and from there it was a nightmare dealing with her. We had an executive room and all she did was give us lies upon lies as to why we were in a handicapped room instead and how we could not be in a different room.The next day things were supposed to be cleared up by the day staff and after returning to our upgraded room we were actually in a downgraded room by guess who?-yes, the same woman on staff in the afternoon. She said we had different reservations even though I showed her my confirmation form and even though she checked us in the day prior. Lied to us and said the manager wouldn't do anything and could not be reached, well after waiting in the lobby for the manager to return she finally took care of us and just made excuses as to why [...]was being a liar. Thank you [...]for your professionalism.We did not feel welcomed into that hotel and just being ignored by [...](only afternoon staff) every time we walked by was awkward.Summary: Bad reception staff, going up and down to different rooms because of a vindictive staff member, for who knows what reason, not getting a hello or goodbye as you enter and leave and feeling unwelcome to a hotel you payed good money to really made our first trip to Edinburgh memorable for bad reasons as I sit here and type this.Why they hired the most un-friendly person in Scotland to work the front desk is beyond me and sadly we went to another Hotel's concierge to ask for directions because of the bad demeanor [...]gave us. Your money is better spent elsewhere.

Great stay!

Would recommend Sat, Oct 30, 2010
This was my first international trip and even though the prices are alot more than what you would spend in the U.S. it was worth it. I probably read over a 100 reviews and I personally found the staff to be very helpful even sent someone to our room to explain the light switches and needing a outlet converter for our electronics. Our rooms were cleaned every day and on our last day I did laundry and was plesently surprised that it was free. We stayed in a jr. ste and the room was great and just like everyone else the beds were incredibly soft like a giant fluffy pillow. Location perfect.

Dining

Harvey Nichols Fourth Floor had the view, great food, we went with no reservations and had no problem being seated and the prices are very reasonable.

Amazing Location!!!

Would recommend Fri, Oct 29, 2010
Fraser Suites was in the absolute best location in Edinburgh! It was literally steps to the Royal Mile, everything was right outside our door. You have Edinburgh Castle at one end and then the Holyrood Palace at the other - we really couldn't have picked a better location. The surrounding buildings are stunning and we felt that the hotel had a great modern feel to it. The rooms were very comfortable and had a convenient little kitchen area (with mini fridge, microwave, sink). When we go back to Edinburgh we will 100% stay at this hotel again, I cannot recommend it enough!

Faser Suites Edinburgh

Would recommend Mon, Oct 4, 2010
The pictures on the internet made the rooms look way bigger than they actually were. I thought the suites would have a kitchen but they only had a sink and a microwave and a desk no kitchen table and chairs. We asked for a room with a view and were given a view of a brick wall but the hotel did check our request and then quickly changed us to a room with a great view yeah! The variety of teas and shortbread cookies were a nice treat. The room was not air conditioned but since the temperature outside was fairly cool we opened the windows and that worked. The free washing machines and dryers were a great asset, they were open 24 hours and they were spotless. There could have been a place to sit to wait for the clothes to dry. The hotel booked a tour for us that was very good. The hotel shuttle was super but did not run too regulary and did not run on weekends. We took the shuttle once to the Queen's Summer Palace. We booked the shuttle to the airport and that was fabulous as we could share the fare with other guests. Both drivers were very courteous and friendly. We were surprised that most pubs stop serving food at 9:00 pm and numerous restaurants near the hotel were closed at 10:00 pm. The hotel staff was very accomodating.

Money saver

Marks and Spencer (hotel advised) has a ATM Machine that does not charge for use, you just have to pay what your bank charges which eliminated extra charges. If you don't take the route turning right from the hotel the shorter way is to go left from the hotel and then right take the first exit through the steps (not easy to see just ask in one of the stores)the other way the steps are extremely steep especially if you came back this way.

Great place to stay

Would recommend Fri, Sep 24, 2010
Best location. In walking distance everywhere including the Royal Castle. Shops and restaurants all around. Very clean room with just about everything we needed. Best hotel we stayed at!

Attractions

Check out the graveyard tour offered nightly at the St. Giles Cathedral. It's about 1 hour and 20 minutes and it's worth doing if you're into that.
