The Bonham Hotel

4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

We spent the w/e here in one of their executive suites and were very disappointed. It is definitely not a ‘luxury boutique hotel’ as described on its website. Rooms and bathrooms are old, worn, tired and badly need upgrading; ‘mini bar’ is a fridge with some soft drinks, chocolate and one bottle of beer; one tiny bottle of shampoo for two people for two nights; daily service of our room was poor with same sheets- part of their ‘environmental policy’ that we should have read about in their lift according to the front desk; no room safe; poor B’fast with precooked poached eggs and undercooked sausages. The location is good and the staff nice but the product is second class and tired. I hope the owners will invest in this product that has the potential to be great.

I had booked an overnight stay to propose to my then Girlfriend and now Fiancée. The Bonham went over and above to provide not only an exquisite dinner, bed and breakfast as well as use of a private room with a gorgeous view of the city and Forth. The staff were extremely helpful and made the whole experience perfect. We were both very impressed with the hospitality, service and quality of food and would recommend a visit to the Bonham whatever the occassion.

Was staying on an overnight trip for work. Room was very comfortable. Great views of the city. Great variety for breakfast. I ordered the Eggs Royale (poached egg, smoked salmon, hollandaise sauce on top of 2 english muffins)- delicious and also included in my room rate! Couldn't fault the hotel really.

We stayed here while on a tour and was delighted with this place. Made up of converted Georgian townhouses in the New Town neighbourhood it is ideally situated near Princes street but without the traffic noise. It is easy walks to Princes street and the shopping area and Rose street with the restaurants. I have no problem recommending this hotel to family and friends.

We stayed in a suite that had a marvelous living room, with en suite bedroom and bath, and windows out to the square on which the hotel sits. Clean, comfortable and stylish, and good value of the money. Close enough to the mains sites to be an easy walk, but enough off the beaten track to feel like you were in the real part of the city. The front desk personnel were very helpful, and also accommodating when we wanted to adjust our departure time to accommodate train schedules.

Stayed here twice. First time the room had some problems, small and not well equiped. The second time room was outstanding. The staff is very good. Restaurant is excellent. Located on a quiet upscale residential street but within easy walking distance of transportation and sites you want to see.

Great hotel. Convenient location within easy walking distance of Princes Street and central attractions. Big rooms with a nice view. Very efficient check in and check out, great breakfast which was extra but good value. A nice relaxed atmosphere, would not hesitate to return.

I would come back here merely to eat the eggs royale with smoked salmon at breakfast. It was just divine. The staff are really lovely can't do enough for you. A great little place with a nice family feel to it.
