      • Group of friends
        10.0

        We enjoted the stay a lot. The staff is really nice and all together very wellcoming. Also I would like to point the fact that it is really easy to find from the train station.

        Located close to Edinburgh castle and easy to get to. Friendly and helpful staff and great breakfast.

      • Older travelers
        7.8

        What more do you want when you find two small carafs with whisky and sherry in your room to welcome you at the Allison. Good idea and very friendly staff. Parkingplace in front of the door. Spacious and luxury room. Excellent breakfast and a beautiful garden at the rear (only to look at). From the hotel an immediate (every 5 mins) to the city-center.

        The shower was a bit small (or we are to big?)

      • Family with children
        5.8

        nice and cosy bed

        windows cannot be closed entirely, room towards the street very loud and cold, breakfast only until 9am

        Friendly staff and a nice touch was the free glass of whisky provided in my room. Breakfast was very good. All facilities clean and working.

      • Couple
        10.0

        Fantastic breakfast, nice clean and quiet room, lots of buses only about 12 minutes from Princes Street. Friendly people

      • Group of friends

        The room is spaces and clean!

        Far from the city center, need to take buses.

      • Family with children
        9.2

        Sitting at the table in the bedroom with lovely view of the beautiful garden

        Between 6.30 and 6.45 we were woken by high pitched whistling water pipes as other guests were having a shower

      • Group of friends
        7.8

        great breakfast, nice rooms some with views of Arthur's Seat, very friendly staff

        not very central (ca. 30 min walk but only 10 min by bus to the city centre with bus stop just at the opposite of the road)

      • Group of friends
        7.8

        The staff were very friendly and informative. Although this hotel is not in the centre of Edinburgh we were advised that buses ran from the stop outside every few minutes and this was indeed the case. The room had everything required for an overnight stay and the little decanters with whisky and sherry in them were a very nice touch. The breakfast was excellent.

        Confort, Easy bus access to the city

      • Couple
        9.6

        Would recommend. Huge comfy warm room. Excellent breakfast. Great selection of both hot food and fruits and juices. Nice touch to have the samples of whiskey and sherry in the rooms. Warms you up before heading out into the Edinburgh chill!! Regular bus stop across the road. No problem leaving our luggage there all day after checking out to go back into the city.

      • Single
        8.2

        Helpful/attentive staff. Good location, bus stops 1/2 block away, about 10mins to city center. great breakfast spread: hot Scottish option, cereals, fresh fruits, danishes, various juices.

        Nothing major, the front door slamming does tend to rattle the room doors at the same time, and my shower head was broken and sprayed at an awkward angle.

      • Older travelers
        6.6

        The bed was very comfortable

        The breakfast was maybe not as good as we have had in the past from competitors close by.

      • Single
        9.2

        My single room was good, with excellent ensuite shower. Hard to think how breakfast could be better; varied selection of fresh fruit was wonderful. Friendly staff. Location is quite handy for the University, bit of a walk into town, but certainly possible, and buses and taxis appear plentiful.
