Dining

George Street Bar and Grill
Open all day and inspired by traditional grand European cafes and brasseries- with a stunning interior-its the elegant and contemporary restaurant to experience some of the best dining and eating out in Edinburgh.
Samovar Lounge
At The Roxburghe we believe that afternoon tea is the most civilised meal of the day and ours is famous throughout Edinburgh. Where else can you experience freshly homemade cakes and sandwiches and warm scones with fresh cream and preserves

Lovely weekend break

My wife & I stayed for a couple of nights in July as she hadn't been to Edinburgh before. Chose this hotel for location, club room and general impression from the web site and it ticked the boxes in all ways. A few minutes walk gets you to Princes Street and another 10-15 minutes to Waverley station, the Royal Mile etc. Club level gets you a full breakfast, all day tea and (real) coffee and early evening drinks & nibbles. The selection on offer wasn't the best we've had but very pleasant all the same. Our room was very spacious and even had a balcony overlooking the bustling Rose Street - could be a slight disadvantage when revellers are returning home in the early hours but this only happened for a couple of minutes on Saturday night. Wouldn't have been a problem at all if the balcony door had shut properly to keep the noise out. Special mention for concierge Jack (I think) who made our dinner reservations at a couple of local restaurants before we arrived and also advised us on various other aspects of our trip, he couldn't do enough for us. The under-hotel car park for guests is also very useful. Would definitely stay here again and recommend to friends.

Chaophraya (Thai) and Amarone (Italian) are both worth a visit and not far from the hotel. If booking at Chaophraya ask for a castle view table, limited numbers but worth it.

Good hotel in new town area.

Very friendly and responsive staff. Clean and comfortable rooms and well appointed bathrooms. Good location adjacent to Rose Lane with many restaurants and shops although a bit of a long walk to the old town area and Waverley train station. Elevator to all floors was useful but a bit small and slow. Free wifi in lobby area nice but for the price would have expected to get free wifi and breakfast.

I loved this hotel. The service was brilliant, the staff went out of their way to help you. The location couldn't be better. The pool was gorgeous and the massage was just what I needed after a hard days Xmas shopping experience. I will be going back

great location, shame about staff attitude

Lovely hotel, staff extremely rude and arrogant. Left bad impression for Edinburgh. Stayed at sister hotel previously where staff were fantastic. Wrongly assumed this one would be similar. Duty manager Gavin was the only redeeming feature. Daytime staff made us feel as if we were a burden whenever we asked any type of question, we therefore, avoided them at all costs. Shame. Shame. Nothing good to say, sorry Peter and Wendy Hogartrh, Australia

Mixed

Lovely room, but leisure pool small (though thankfully not a silly shape so at least we were able to swim some lengths). Male changing room suprisingly skanky. Our own bedroom was superb, with huge bathroom and free standing bath. Nicest hotel room we've stayed in for a very long time. But the worst thing of all -- we had to QUEUE for breakfast on Sunday morning as if we were at Butlins! Not what one expects from a hotel of this standard.

Good location, good hotel

I´ve been at the hotel two times and had two different rooms. The first time we got an excellent room with fridge, iron etc. The other time we got a small room in an old part of the hotel, on the upper floor and the bed was broken.

Good weekend break venue

Very good service, staff helpful, especially concierge. Only significant fault would be lack of free wi-fi anywhere which I would normally expect in a hotel of this type. Car parking must be pre-booked and wasn't cheap, but convenient and secure carpark and saved too much negotiation of Edinburgh's current roadworks.

Amazing

This is truly the nicest hotel I have stayed in. The staff are fantastic, extremely helpful and friendly. The rooms are fabulous, a fantastic size, have everything you need and couldnt fault the cleanliness of them. The location is brilliant for getting to all the main sights and shopping Edinburgh has to offer. I would and have already gladly recommended this hotel to other family members and friends. I look forward to coming back to stay here the next time I am in Edinburgh.
