Lovely comfortable room but there were a few niggles: The kettle didn't work unless you stood a vase on top of it to force the contact with the base. The external 'phone line didn't work - had to go through reception to make a call every time. The Wi-Fi only worked intermittently in the desk area of the room. There was an 'honesty bar'. Nice in some ways but would expect more faclities in a hotel like this. Basically, all minor stuff, but this is a premium-priced hotel.....

Arrived quite late and staff member was very helpful. We were advised to pre book breakfast as it was at a reduced price if we did so. Breakfast was lovely and very good value. Overall a very comfortable stay and will definitely return should we ever return to Edinburgh.

I looked into hotels in Edinburgh for both convenience and luxury, and found both in the Glasshouse. Situated as central to the town as you could hope for, everything about the stay was perfect. The room was spacious, bright, and spotless; the staff courteous and friendly; the option of breakfast in bed was an absolute treat; and a slight problem with a misplaced bag was dealt with quickly. I would love to go back again, as soon as I can!

Wow was blown away with this Hotel. Everything about it was luxurious. Staff are excellent and can not do enough for you. The honesty bar in the snug is a brilliant addition as well. Superb location in the heart of the city centre with plenty of attractions nearby. Highly recomend.

Our stay at the hotel was so that we could go to the playhouse next door for our wedding anniversary. My husband is visually impaired so I wanted something that was close to the playhouse. It could not have been better. We were blown away by the attentive staff, the luxury of the room and the general relaxed feeling of the hotel. I would definately stay there again and will be recommeding the Glasshouse to all my friends.

Luxurious hotel. The front facade is old fashioned and traditional. Behind that, everything is modern and luxurious. Welcoming staff. Great room with plenty of space. Lovely bathroom and lots of nice toiletries. A nice small bottle of Oban whisky was left in the room. Fantastic. The bed was really comfortable. And big!

We stayed for two nights in February 2011 at the Glasshouse paying £165 for a 'Deluxe room 1 -Queen". For quality and location this hotel scores very highly. The only downside is that for this price one gets little other than the room. Breakfast and broadband are extra. To be honest breakfast was not an issue (The Frankie & Benny's restaurant in the cinema complex next door is perfectly good and well-priced), but for a hotel of this calibre broadband should be free. Although everything they have is of the best standard, the Glasshouse lacks some facilities that some may expect, such as pool and spa etc. However, all things considered this is probably one of the finest hotels in Edinburgh (and I've stayed in a few).

On arrival we were met and welcomed by the entrance. The staff were very polite, friendly and helpful. We were shown to our room which was of a very good standard. The outlook over the garden space and carton hill was very pleasant, toiletries in the room nice and the room itself separated into a clothes, bathroom, sleeping and sitting area. We had a drink from the honesty bar which was a special touch and a wonderful breakfast in our room. Edinburgh itself is a beautiful city. We enjoyed a lovely few days at the glasshouse and would certainly return.

Most enjoyable stay staff were very helpful and pleasant. Great location for eating out,shopping and drinking. Rooms spacious loved the balcony and although did not venture out into roof garden it looked lovely. Although it was sunny it was too cold to sit outside in November. Would definetley go back to the hotel and would recommend to friends and family.

A most luxurious hotel with so many little comforts. A beautiful building also. The service was excellent and also refreshingly discrete.

With a special price it was worth while staing at the Glasshouse Hotel. The staff is very nice and friendly, but somewhat unexperienced. The room I had was big, good, nice and very clean, but the cleaner should have looked under the bed, and I never got a bottle opnener. All in all, a pleasant stay!

Our overall experience whilst staying at The Glasshouse Hotel was very enjoyable and to a very high standard. The only negative point is that the hotel is situated next to a couple of pubs and a club which was very noisy (we could hear music and people shouting until 3.30am!!)
