Lovely stay

We enjoyed our stay and spa day at The Carlton. Staff were friendly and helpful. Our room was lovely and in good condition. We were impressed with the size of the room we were given for our nights stay. Staff were great taking our bags up to the room for us whilst we were at the spa and providing clear and clam instructions following a 4am fire alarm caused by a problem in one of the guest bedrooms. We will definitely stay again if we can afford to on our future trips to Edinburgh.

Excellent all round Hotel

Second stay at this hotel and again was not disappointed. Friendly staff throughout, great location and facilities. Plenty of breakfast choice. A great location for Waverly Railway station and the Playhouse Theatre, Old and New Town all within a short walk .

Nice and warm

The staff were incredibly helpful, moving us to a more comfortable room on request. The only problem with our stay was the temperature of the room. I know it was winter but it was too hot.

Dining tip: Short walk from hotel

Best restaurant I've ever eaten at, Number One at the Balmoral. Not cheap but very close and worth every penny.

Do not use the phone

Hotel is fine and comfortable and in a great location. Has a slightly tatty feel to it - needs a bit of a makeover. Main concern was that, despite being an expensive hotel, the extras really cost. WiFi is 'free' - fast WiFi isn't. And the cost of telephone calls from the room is absolutely extortionate.

Found everything to a high standard

Found everything to a high standard from our arrival , to our breakfast served to our room and the smooth departure process. The hotel is central for both the old town and the town centre area. Would definately stay at this hotel again.
