The Royal Scots Club Edinburgh

3.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

The Club was centrally and conveniently located to major attractions. The surroundings and neighborhoods were awesome and quiet. I could feel the rich history of the city while walking on the streets.

Sash window in room 23 a problem. not able to sleep well. Bar staff charged me twice for one drink and only noticed at checkout. No marmalade on table at breakfast. I had to request it on both mornings. This survey takes too long.

Celebrating 39 years of military service by way of a retirement lunch at the Royal Scots Club is simply the very best way to have done so - thank you. The service and environment coupled with excellent menu choice and superb bar facilities made this event memorable beyond the already momentous status it had - thank you again.

First time visit and will definitely be back. This is a very clean, smart but unassuming hotel which is quiet (except for slightly creaking floorboards above!). In a quiet residential street close enough to walk to Waverley station. A taxi would be needed up to the castle if I'm honest. Economical and on the button!

Had some friends up so met in the club for a nice meal we all enjoyed our meals a great choice I had salmon to start then a lovely sea bass followed by ice cream and coffee lynda had soup followed by lamb Keith had salmon followed by beef They then both had cheese and biscuits washed down by a nice bottle of Rosie Keith and Lynda was so impressed they are going to become members Do not miss this place if you get invited to lunch there

Beautiful, full of history and very friendly. Breakfast was great and are definitely going back. They even have the colours on display. One slight whinge is the lift is not working. Spacious rooms with all the bows and whistles. And the location is perfect for the tourism side of things.

My stay was in connection with a private dinner, as previously outlined. It was a great experience and one which we all hope to make happen again next year. The service given by the Royal Scots Club was faultless, and the event met all our expectations.

Stayed here on a few occasions. Fantastically central and within a quiet residential area. Accommodation reasonably priced. Would recommend. Downside, the lift has not been working on at least two previous visits. Not ideal when you're on the second floor!

The perfect place to stay whilst visiting family in Edinburgh Good food and amazing location. Staff are helpful without being intrusive . There was a large function taking place in the basement the layout of the club means this did not disturb us We loved our stay can't wait to come again

We stayed at the club as an anniversary gift from our children and were very impressed. All the staff were pleasant and helpful especially the young lady on the bar who went out of her way to give reccomendations for tourist attractions and places to dine out. Breakfast was great, large portions and something for everyone. Our room was spacious and very clean with a lovely view over the gardens. We would definitely stay here again and would recommend to others.
