          Historical Traveler Reviews Salisbury Green Hotel Edinburgh

          Very nice!


          We stayed at the Salisbury Green for only a night as our final destination was close to the west coast of Scotland. However, it was a wonderful experience and we would definately stay there again.

          The rooms were very nice and large. We had a beautiful view looking over the garden. The bathroom was nice and large as well. The breakfast offered was amazing, the traditional scottish breakfast was offered, and it was delicious!

          We did walk down a few streets for dinner and came upon a very nice italian restaurant (the name escapes my memory though, I blame jet-lag and keeping my 7 month old son occupied). The people in the restaurant were so incredible nice and had amazing food. They were so nice to us and my son, I was sad that we only got to be there for a night.

          If we get the chance to go to Edinburgh again, we will definately stay here again and have already recommended it to friends.

          Bon rapport qualité prix


          Nous n'avons pas été déçus et nous avons déjà réservé au Chancellors Court via le même site pour le mois d'août. Cependant, ils nous ont prévenu que le parking gratuit n'était pas garanti, ce qui est dommage parce que c'est un avantage important.

          Great value


          We were not disappointed and have booked again in August for Chancellors Court on the same site. However, they have warned that free parking is not guaranteed which is a shame as it is a great bonus.

          Good mix of modern and old


          I have just returned from a romantic weekend stay in Salisbury Green (which is owned by Edinburgh university). I read many reviews and couldnt find any negative ones so I was expecting alot. I was going towards Pollock halls to check in but was glad to have been met at the entrance of the hotel by an extremely helpful and friendly staff member.

          The building is very old but the rooms are in comparison very modern , trendy and very clean. We had a flat screen t.v. a large very comfortable bed with extremely soft sheets and modern bathroom as well as a safe. The room was just the right size.I stayed over the weekend and did not notice any noise from the near student halls.

          Lothian Buses 30 and 33 go there from north bridge very frequently and the stop for the hotel is at the commonwealth pool. This takes around ten minutes and costs a pound each way but I recommend getting the day pass for £2.50 if you intend to make more than two journeys.

          The breakfast was plentyful with a good selection of cold foods and then a cooked scottish breakfast. The staff were very friendly and approachable.

          The 'Real Mary King experience' trip was the highlight. It takes you underground to actual houses of how scottish people used to live including the ghost, and plague stories and waste management system!!Well worth the money.

          The ghost tour 'Living dead' which has apparently the only company that has access to the graveyard (go when it is pitch black is much better) was o.k. The tour guide was full of energy and told the ghost stories of the villans and grave robbers very well. Scared no. All psycholgical in the head I think!!

          Around Edinburgh there is so much history and a tour bus gives a great commentary and you get to see about street level to see all the fine statues. I managed to get into the castle on one of the free days( it is usually @£10 i believe). Lots of people about great views of the city not so interesting inside the buildings.

          Lots of pubs especially on Rose street and the friendliest bouncers i have ever met.

          Overall a great city to go for a romantic break and a great hotel for the money and would go back to.Leith only 2 miles very romantic as well for a meal and quiet drinks.

          A tip: The National gallery just off Princes street has a great place downstairs which is free to leave your bags. As check out of the hotel was at 11am we left our bags at the National Gallery till 3pm as we did our shopping a little lighter.

          Loved Salisbury Green..Excellent


          We stayed in Hotel Salisbury Green in April 2007 fm 6 th to 8 th..It was an wonderful experience.Beautiful modern rooms with huge bathrooms & excellent is very well connected with the city centre as bus stops are just outside hotel..Bus nos 30, 33, 86 & few others take u to city centre..Breakfast was just too good..We also find customer service to b simpley great, as we lost our cell phone & Emily fm customer desk actually took the trouble to send my phone back to my address, for which I am so greatful to her..I absolutely loved this hotel & would recommend to everyone visiting Edinbourgh & is looking for a hotel to stay..Thumbs up to Salisbury Green..

          Good value for money


          This hotel will score good points on almost everything but for the reception and the fact that it is inside university halls of residence. Luckily we went on easter holidays and there were hardly any students about. There is no reception at the hotel and you have to check in and check out at pollock halls reception. If you are taking a taxi, make sure you tell the cab to take you to pollock halls reception. Bus no 30 and 33 take you right there from princes street. If you are checking in late, do let them know in advance - which is what I did.

          Rooms were nicely furnished and looked new. There was no minibar though. I didn't like the cooked breakfast in particular but continental was alright. The only staff you saw was in the morning and the hotel appeared empty.

          All in all, it was value for money (£64 a night from and good modern decor. I'd stay here again (only if students are not around :-) )

          Loved it!!


          been to edinburgh and stayed up there a few times. on this occasion we were going to see the fab damien rice and since it was around anniversary time I wanted to book somewhere nice.

          The hotel isnt that far from the city centre- about 4 mins literally in a cab, you can actually walk. And while it is in the middle of a halls of residence we stayed on saturday night and we didnt hear a thing. The hotel was quiet, clean and comfortable. The staff were friendly and helpful.

          when we arived the sun was shinning and there was a great atmosphere to the building itself, inside and out. the rooms were finnished to a high standard and were quite spacious with a great shower.

          the breakfast was quite tastly also! the bed was the most comfy i've slept in including my own!!

          yip. I would certainly stay here again.

          Simply Excellent!


          I have just returned from an overnight stay at Salisbury Green and have nothing but praise for this superb hotel!

          The hotel is situated within the grounds of the Pollock Halls of Residence however don't let this put you off, we had a ground floor room on a Saturday night and yet there was no noise, mad party's or student's wandering around! The room was tastefully decorated in a modern style, spotlessly clean and well equipped with a large en-suite bathroom, tea/coffee facilities and flat panel TV.

          Breakfast was served in the bright dining room and was of buffet style with a selection of serials, juices, pastries and cold meats. A cooked breakfast was also included if we wanted.

          Cab ride from the hotel to the Edinburgh Playhouse was around £7.

          All-in-all an excellent hotel for a reasonable price given that it's in the capital. We would have no hesitation in staying again.

          University hotel!


          My husband and I stayed at this hotel for one night during a 4day tour of scotland. The hotel is a beautiful old building, with what looks like a fully refurbished interior. The rooms are kept to a very high standard, the garden views were lovely, the bathroom was high spec and we even had a small side room to be used as a dressing room with wardrobe and mirror! The staff are very friendly and helpful and breakfast was delicious!

          The only thing I wasn't aware of was that this hotel actually lies within the university halls of residence. You are surrounded by student halls and many students! Check in and check out is done at the main reception building(part of the halls campus) and not in the hotel itself. Saying that the atmosphere in the area is very peaceful and you are a 5minute bus ride away from the centre of Edinburgh and all it's attractions. All in all we had a brilliant stay and would stay here again.

          Lovely guesthouse in Edinburgh


          Lovely big room with view over back garden. Ensuite was huge, great traditional Scottish breakfast too. Friendly and helpful staff. Highly recommended!

          ... We did brave the crowds and went up to the Royal Mile. There was some sort of festival , Riding the Marches, supposedly there were horses but no one saw any. There were re-enacters dressed as Red coats. We did Sainsbury for tea again , more raspberries. The other went to a Scottish show , but truly we were too tired from walking and quite glad we had opted to not go. York tomorrow.

Nic was set to read every story behind the three hundred or so tapestries so I explored some other areas before we went to the supermarket and returned to our hostel to do washing make tea and enjoy a hot chocolate at the bar. We both felt extremely homesick today, the stress of travel planning and the one month mark hit us for six. Hoping for a better day ...

          ... we were having dinner, after some drinks of course. Once the meal was done it was across the road to Berts Bar to finish off our evening. At midnight it was time to draw the curtains on a Fabulous night with good company and we had lots of laughs.

          Sunday was a slow start but Adam and I did a trip into town so he could have a look around and get his bearings. We had time to meander thru the Gardens, had a coffee and some lunch ...
