Beautiful building inside and out but! The reception is a bit like a hostel rather than a hotel. I was told our room was upgraded but as we booked their premium room how could this be? The hotel is surrounded by ugly 1970s buildings and a building site. Our room was poorly decorated with mis matched furniture a dirty poorly fitting valance. I asked for a additional blanket as it was cold, this never arrived. The breakfast was nice and service staff very pleasant. Will not go again

I enjoyed my stay, the staff were very friendly and keen to help. It was a cold and windy night and the room just didn’t heat up even with every radiator or heater on. The breakfast was nice and cooked to order, good poached eggs. Great to get free parking and the Salisbury Arms pub over the road was excellent for dinner.

Had a lovely 2 night stay here, room was clean and smart and the breakfast food was spectacular. Gorgeous old 'house' and staff made us feel very welcome. Frequent buses to centre of Edinburgh with stops nearby or within 20-30mins walk. Highly recommend :)

The staff are very friendly and helpful. There are some quirks as a result of this being a university offering rather than a 'commercial' operation (e.g. unusual check in process and hotel not manned after 11:00pm) but none of these affects the experience. Our room was spacious with a separate study and ensuite. The room was well decorated and comfortable with tea and coffee facilities. Breakfast was first class. We would certainly recommend the Salisbury Green and intend to return.

We stayed at the Salisbury green hotel on Saturday night. The building is lovely. The staff at the main reception very helpful and friendly. Few metre walk to the hotel itself. Lovely room however toilet very low. Good location for the centre of Edinburgh

We stayed over on the 1st of November. Fantastic building, beautifully restored and decorated. Breakfast very well presented. Also lovely reception staff. Returned a Mac-book charger we didn't even notice we had left for cost of postage. They contacted us. Will stay again. Also perfectly located for Edinburgh Uni and tourism.

Late booking searching for Edinburgh but not the seething centre of things. Following GPS was as challenge till we realised the hotel was actually in the university grounds. Clearly, the university had grown up round it and absorbed it. Building scored high on the weirdometer with a recent history as academic/university conference accommodation, it's history as a stand alone hotel was quite recent, and , with reception in another building, the hotel was quiet. Rooms were good. Bed comfortable. Good views of Salisbury Crags, strangely. We were on the third floor so a long way up for a building without lifts. Breakfast excellent. With the confidence of knowing how to find the place, I'd stay there again but try to give the third floor the body swerve.

I booked this hotel for a weekend away; my parents came too. Check-in was not quite what I'd expected. This hotel is set around buildings that are used for events/conferences and I think it's linked to the university. There was a barrier to get through to enter and after direction we parked (space literally for drop off only) outside a different building to check-in to our rooms. The gentleman serving us also couldn't find my reservation initially - not the best start! We then found the actual building, in front of which there was no parking available. I think there were 8 spaces total outside the hotel itself. My step-dad has rather bad arthritis so we dropped them off while we found other parking. We later managed to get a space directly outside. There is no elevator, only stairs for the three floors of rooms. Our room was spacious and clean with good amenities. Choice of teas and filtered coffee was good. The bed was a nice zip-together super king size and was fairly comfortable. Breakfast was in the same building in the morning. We really enjoyed breakfast; a good range of hot and buffet breakfast options were available. Check-out was again in the nearby building. Having looked at photos online (Expedia) before booking, I had no idea this beautiful looking building was going to be in the surroundings it was, so my expectations were different to reality. However, we had a comfortable stay and the hotel is well positioned to get in and out of central Edinburgh rather easily. It was reasonably priced. It was also just across the road from the Salisbury Arms, a beautiful restaurant/bar that I would definitely recommend!

Location was very quiet and peaceful. After we checked out and left for the bus my husband became ill. We walked back to the hotel and requested if we could go back to our room to rest for a few hours. They were wonderful and allowed us to rest and offered to call an ambulance if needed. We were able to get some rest and he was feeling good enough to leave for the train. They called a taxi and also told us how to get to a pharmacy for medication. I honestly don't know what we would have done without their help.

This was a very nice place to stay while we visited Edinburgh. It was a very old mansion that has been turned into a quaint hotel. We were actually given a handicapped room which was a bit strange but we made do. The breakfast is a must if you stay here. Plan on taking a taxi or bus for seeing the sights.
