Ten Hill Place Hotel
Travel Blogs from Edinburgh
We had a wonderful local guide to explore the incredibly beautiful city of Edinburgh. First stop Edinburgh Castle--this was the real thing on top of a rocky hill which really is a fortress to protect the city. It has changed hands as the capital of the UK many times as both the British & Scott's fought over who would be king. It was a very …
The night before we leave Stratford our guide asked if we wanted our bags taken downstairs in the morning. I said yes because my bag is pretty heavy, and I carried by smaller bag to reception. HOWEVER, I didn't realize it was going only downstairs & not to the coach!! So I get on the bus, smaller suit case stowed under bus & off we go. …
Arrived in grey drizzle and 11deg. Even so the bus ride into downtown Edinburgh told us we were going to like it. Took a walk to get our bearings and dinner but the rain drove us back to the hotel for bar snacks and an early night after our 4am wake up in Dubai. Fine morning but COLD and wrapped up in puffer jackets we walked across the bridge and …
Our wedding anniversary! We exchange cards, realise we've bought each other the same gig tickets for next year, and then look out the window… who tippexed out Edinburgh? It was definitely here when we went to bed, now there’s just a big white space where the city should be…

Of course, we could have booked the train, or even flew, to Edinburgh, but after our US Roadtrip earlier in the year, we preferred the freedom of being in charge of our own journey – and I preferred being able to throw several pairs of shoes in the boot of the car ("Yes, of course I need those stiletto heel boots. They go with that dress. And …

Historical Traveler Reviews Ten Hill Place Hotel Edinburgh
my boyfirend and i stayed in this hotel for a weekend theatre break. after i read reviews and visited the hotel website i decided to go ahead and book the room for which i got a really good deal for.
Me and my boyfriend travelled from England to stay at Ten Hill for the weekend, as we had no idea of the area we found it a little difficult to find as there were no signs at all - but maybe this was due to it only just opening the previous day.
The room was PERFECT! stylish and trendy!
We'd reccomend to get down to breakfast early as the dining area was full and we had to wait 30 minutes to be seated, but then to find there was no food left and no alternative offered.
apart from that, the stay was fantastic! Recomended to all and would definately return on our next visit to Edinburgh!
We stayed at Ten Hill Place between Xmas and New Year. The hotel is easy to find and reception is modern and nicely designed. Check in was a breeze but the car park round the back is not somewhere you would choose to visit at night. Poor lighting, littered and no entrance to the hotel..you have to walk back round to the front. We had booked a Skyline room which boasts stunning views of Arthurs Seat. Well, maybe I'm hard to please but you do not see to much of the view as you also have windows over the street that look across so you tend to keep the nets shut. That said, the room was very clean, spacious with a sofa and chair. The flatscreenTV was a good size and the bed was comfortable. The bathroom was modern, clean and functional, but not WOW for me. ( try a top price Du Vin bathroom and you'll know what I mean ). Breakfast was pleasant but I can imagine it can get cramped occasionally as previous report stated, however the staff were attentive and efficient making it a pleasant start to the day. The situation is excellent for the Festival Hall and an easy 5 min stroll to the Royal Mile.Overall we enjoyed our stay but left feeling that Ten Hill Place was good but lacked WOW.
I stayed here about three days after it opened so can forgive what I presume was a teething problem (I hope) with the heating system that saw the alarm go off twice, at 1am and 7am! We were evacuated both times until the fire service came, but in fairness it was good to see how efficiently this was done.
First arrived at the well located hotel, and found there was parking at thew back with cctv cameras for security, plenty of space. When I enterered the hotel is was brand spanking new and spotlessly clean. Just everything i saw was sharp, sleek, and very modern. The staff are very friendly and helpful. After just walking in from a long day it took literally 5 mins to get my keycard and get to my room. Entered the room 110 massive double bed with cushions, pillows, and big thick quilt. 2 armchairs were situated in the room plenty of room. Big 27" HD Tv with sky. En suite with a large frosted glass door to a enormous bathroom (Very Big). Comfy Bed felt like i was at home. Just 100% perfect! Would recommend for anyone. I went on my own was doing a job up there. 1 night very very good. To finish off breakfast was amazing great service. 11/10!
The hotel is in a quiet but central street, look out for its very 'subtle' frosted glass name on a pair of glass doors at the end of the road. All staff young, but very pleasant, we got into our room early. It is contemporary styled, spacious, clean and the shower was strong. Facilities good. Iron in wardrobe. The semi-see through bathroom doors could be an issue as mentioned. However our trip was spoiled by the breakfast wait, 25 to 30 minutes spent STANDING IN A QUEUE. All the guests had to be called, by room number, as tables became available. There are approx 20 tables and 78 rooms. Once inside the hot buffet breakfast was displayed in ONE SMALL CORNER! Many hungry irritated guests, one pile of plates, one dish of each item. Staff squeezing in with replacement dishes... it induced panic grabbing of potato scones and bacon! The architects must find space on the ground floor for a bigger breakfast room, reduced fire exit/lift access and smaller reception. This needs a redesign now. I would not recommend it for this reason. The poor staff can't operate like this, never mind the guests.
This hotel is a little piece of heaven. Brand new, stylish and spotlessly clean. The most comfortable bed I've ever slept in. Great facilities and a hearty buffet breakfast. Great location - within walking distance of the train station and the castle. Excellent value for money. Highly recommended.
Me and my boyfriend went on an overnight stay to edinbugh and found this hotel on the internet. We got to the hotel, which is quite easy to find and just far enough from the centre allow for a quiet night sleep but close enough to walk to the centre quickly and easlily. We got to the hotel and were given our hotel room key very quickly and went to our room. The room was FANTASTIC, we walked in and it was way beyond our expectations. The bed was gorgeous, big and spotlessly clean, with lovely deep and neutral coloured pillows and throws. The room was spacious and nicely furnished. The curtains overlapped so that the light was completely blocked out for a good nights sleep. The bathroom was, again, spotlessly clean.
I have just returned from a one night shopping trip, to Edinburgh, with my friend and I am exhausted! Mainly because the fire alarm went off twice during the night - and as you can imagine it wasn't a very pleasing experience. It went off at 11.30pm and then again at 7.45am, and I have since been told that it was a technical fault to do with the heating. I expected a few errors would occur within the hotel, due to it just opening but to be told when arriving downstairs for the second time that it was a false alarm again, for some reason we had to still stand outside in the freezing cold while still in pyjamas and bare feet. We wish we had just gone back to bed as no-one even did a head count or asked us if we were ok. Basically if we had just stayed in bed they wouldn't even have noticed if we hadn't come down or not. All we got for our inconvenience and spoilt night away was a bottle of wine between us, not even a discount or offer off another stay. So make sure that you take slippers and a dressing gown with you when staying at this hotel.
