              Late check in meant nobody on reception to ask for towels from. No towels provided and in the morning we found the telephone didn't work so I couldn't call reception for towels. Had to wrap myself in the bedcover and find staff in the kitchen to help. Then a completely cold shower as couldn't get the hot water to work though my daughter has tepid shower before me. Had the hot water run out? Also we both burnt ourselves on the towel rail-heater as the bathroom is so narrow. Not worth what we paid and wouldn't recommend.

              The staff were extremely generous and helpful. My baggage was lost for two days of my stay in Edinburgh, and the women working the front desk were so consistently kind, checking in with me often. When my bag finally arrived, they brought it to me immediately. Hotel was very nice, with a great location and in walking distance of many great restaurants and sites. Overall very clean and comfortable.

              Lovely, large and spacious bedrooms. Bed was extremely comfortable. Staff were very attentive and welcoming. Breakfast was superb. Only downside that the hotel is located quite a good 25 min walk out of Edinburgh and I didn't feel all that safe on majority of the walk back into main town. Wouldn't stay again; only due to the location

Nice to have plenty of supplies of tea, coffee and hot chocolate. We didn’t use the hotel to eat in as we were visiting our daughter who lives locally.

              Perfect!”

              I travelled from Newcastle to Edinburgh so was exhausted. The room I stayed in was Marshall and it was perfectly cleaned and the bathroom was very fancy! And oh my god the beds are like marshmallows it has to be the best nights sleep I’ve had in a long time shame it couldn’t of been longer! A lovely view into the garden and had a big range of different tea coffee from normal tea to green flavoured tea. The breakfast was very very tasty! A lovely selection of continental and cooked breakfast! Lovely cooked in a lovely clean kitchen! It’s a restaurant on a night but never got to try it for a meal. There’s limited parking spaces but the man on reception told me to double park and leave my keys at reception so they could move it if needed ‘this i wasn’t really fussed about’ It’s perfect distance from the town centre only walking distance from the the royal mile and round the corner from any local shops All in all it’s the best hotel I’ve stayed in and will defiantly be a regular customer all the staff were amazing I can’t wait to be back!!

              my stay there was consider a mixed good and bad.on the very first day i was told that i did not get the double room as i have booked earlier through agoda, as the double room were all full so me and my husband had to stay in single room which they added extra bed in.however,the staff managed to move us to a double room the next day.i must say the double room is definitely a better room than the single,especially the bathroom area.my husband and i had taken our dinner at the hotel, the food there is excellent.

              Large room, good location, friendly/ helpful staff

              When we arrived the man at reception was friendly and curtious, giving us a map of the city and pointing out some of the notable attractions and how to get there. The room was large with high ceilings and a small en suite with very nice docor and colour scheme. Turn down service was excellent and the addition of a Tunnocks tea cake everyday was a particularly nice touch! Breakfast was a basic continental, but a good selection of fruits and cereals to accompany. Only slight criticism was poor wifi, wuite slow and weak signal which meant loading internet maps took quite a while (we stayed in duddingston room). Overall very nice hotel and excellent value for money.

              Convenient small townhouse hotel”

              You don't need a car

              I prefer to stay in small local hotels which have a personal touch. The Salisbury fits the bill. I arrived early with the intention of just leaving my baggage but the staff quickly finished my room and I was able to check in. Room had everything I needed including comfy bed and good quality bed linen, plenty of towels etc plus an ironing board and hair dryer. Some nice extras with the tea/coffee making like teacakes, bottled water and a bottle of wine. Good shower with toiletries provided. Only comment is that the continental breakfast is a bit basic -I was only toast and jam offered. Tried the small restaurant which was convenient but not special and there was a noisy group there which was a bit distracting. Good wifi and reception was very helpful with maps, travel information etc.
