The Frederick House Hotel, Edinburgh
Excellent, friendly helpful receptionist, good room, spacious, clean. Great location. Slight noise from outside as room was on front - but Edinburgh is a busy city.

Very Nice
Pleasant hotel, but street-side rooms can be a bit noisy. We extended our stay and staff were very accommodating.

In the heart of it all!
The staff can see the front door from the reception desk and they could see me struggling to bring in two heavy pieces of luggage, but no one was sent to offer help. You have to negotiate three sets of stairs to even get in to the hotel, so for a solo woman traveler it was not very easy to get to check in. Once in however,w the room was lovely except one of the floorboards was VERY soft and noisy when you walked across it. The agreement with a restaurant down the street (Rabble) was nice - you got a 25% discount on you total lunch or dinner bill and the food was superb. Location is VERY good - in the midst of everything going on and not TOO far from the train station, so if you only have minimal luggage you could even walk to the hotel within 10 minutes.

48 hrs and so many whiskeys
The hotel was perfect for our needs - 10min walk to Edinburgh castle / Royal mile or Carton Hill. Friendly service and helpful with both ordering taxi and letting us hold one of the two rums we booked a little longer than checkout. Breakfast across the street went also well and can recommend the Rabbel !

Good friendly well located hotel
Friendly and helpful reception staff Having a lift was helpful. Great location close to Princes Street and lots of shops and cafes. Only downside was having to pay £28per night in the local NCP. Should the hotel consider seeking some concessions for its overnight guests?
