Perfect stay at this hotel, was our wedding and we got upgraded to a junior suite. The hotel did everything for us, made it even better of a day and I cant thank them enough for it. If your planning on staying in Edinburgh anytime soon then dont look anywhere else than here, the perfect hotel.

I booked this as I was assured some of the Spa facilities would still be open, however once I had booked the room I found out they weren't. as I had booked last minute it was to late to cancel and it was a little frustrating.

Hi Paul, I'm really sorry to hear of the confusion you faced, having been told that our spa facilities were open prior to your arrival. On the week in question, I know there were some last minute changes to the opening times of the third-party spa company was operating due to the ongoing pandemic as well as the festive period. I'm sorry for the inconvenience caused and I hope this didn't spoil your stay too much. I am glad to hear that you consider the Radisson Blu, Edinburgh to be a lovely hotel and I hope we will see you again in the future! Kind regards, Flynn Front Office Manager

What a wonderful hotel and what absolutely fantastic staff ! no doubt this year has been difficult and immensely challenging for those in the hospitality sector, however staying in this hotel was a beautiful little moment of blissful escapism. The touches, (cupcakes on arrival) spiced rum and a passing smile, to warm conversation, beautiful rooms and a gorgeous breakfast each morning ! the restaurant food was exceptional too. will definitely be returning on our next visit to Edinburgh

My wife and I stayed at the Hotel from Friday, 13th to Monday 16th November. upon arrival we were greeted by Paul who steered us to the car park- a fantastic place to safely leave your car, in a big city. Check in was straightforward. all Covid precautions were in place at each juncture, with lots of Sanitisation points. our room was a good size and well appointed. We ate in the hotel on two nights and had three Breakfasts- each meal was superb. Excellent quality and great value for money. we enjoy the luxury of having our freshly-cooked breakfast brought to the table, rather than a Buffet. But it was the Staff who truly made our stay. each one was friendly, efficient and effective. Nothing was too much trouble. they have ensured that this will be a return venue. Well done all.

We stayed here while enjoying the Edinburgh Christmas Market. The room was well appointed, clean and cozy. The hotel was decorated beautifully for Christmas and made for a festive retreat after fun filled days exploring the city and nights enjoying the Christmas market. We only had a quick tea in the bar area, as we explored other restaurants, so I can't really comment on dining here. The location is very central to a lot of sights and very easy to walk to most things. We'd definitely stay here again on future visits.
