Lovely hotel! Easy waking distance to the city center. Restaurant was wonderful. Most of the staff was extremely pleasant and all were helpful! Beautiful room!

The reception desk staff and breakfast staff were friendly and helpful. Breakfast was filling and delicious. Our rooms were spacious and beautifully decorated. The only issue that we had was that the toilet in the room we stayed in the second and third nights was difficult to flush completely. This was not unique to The Royal Scot Club.

This is a classy place. Lots of history, lovely old architecture detail to the dining rooms, lounge, even stairways. Not your mainstream noisy, showy hotel, but instead, a quiet, reserved, comfortable and more personal accommodation. We loved it. It is a very safe and gracious location within easy walking to Princes Street (the main shopping and tourist street).

The hotel has an elegant feel, as we arrived in a heat wave it still was fairly comfortable with the window open (although this admits a good deal of noise from the street and parkway). Room beginning to show signs of needed maintenance (I saw a bug burrow in a small depression in the carpet at the corner of the room).

Hard mattress. View to a concrete wall. Heat didn't work so I was cold the whole time. No ice machine. You have to sit down on the toilet in order to close the bathroom door because the bathroom is so small and you can't get to the sink without closing the door.

Hotel lovely and easy to walk to many sightseeing attractions. They do not have on site parking, but direct to a garage that is 4 blocks away.

room was fine food in dining room was disappointing

Our stay was wonderful, loved the atmosphere and culture.
