“Top-notch Hotel and Restaurant”
Reviewed 28 April 2012

I travelled to Edinburgh with my wife in early April and had the pleasure of staying in one of the nicest hotels we've been to.
The atmosphere was lovely, with friendly staff making us feel welcome.
The rooms were spacious and well decorated, with everything one needs to feel at home.
I would highly recommend dining in the restaurant! The selection of mouth watering food and presentation is out of this world. I had the hand dived Scallops and Sirloin steak with Triple cooked chips that are to die for.
We had a lovely time and will definitely be back when we travel to this part of the world again.

My husband and I stayed at the hotel as part of a short break in Edinburgh. We were impressed with all aspects of our stay and the quality of service provided, from the fantastic room, facilities and restaurant to the accommodating and friendly nature of the staff. A gem of an hotel with a great location.

I am delighted to hear that you have enjoyed your short break with us and that you were impressed with both our individually designed bedrooms and the quality of the restaurant and hotel service provided.

Hotel Indigo Edinburgh is located on York Place which is the east end of Queen street making for a perfect base to explore the city.

I took an impromptu visit up to Edinburgh for the night, booked a last minute room (booked it 5 minutes before I showed up on my phone!) at the Hotel Indigo. I was so happily surprised with my choice. The staff was unbelievably welcoming, and even gave me the name of a non-touristy bar to go to and get great scotch. Met incredibly nice locals there, too. Bed was cozy, room was perfect temperature, and bathroom was amazing. I didn't experience anything that the negative posters had mentioned. Lift was running, bar was great, location was ideal, and room was perfect. I'll definitely be staying there again on my next visit.

Room Tip: My room was facing the street and was still super quiet!

Dear Carorock,

Thank you very much for your fantastic comments regarding your stay at Hotel Indigo Edinburgh.

I am delighted to hear that you have enjoyed your stay. Hotel Indigo Edinburgh is very much part of the neighbourhood and as such we like to recommend places to see and go that might be slightly off your general tourists path to give you a chance to really experience Edinburgh.

We do have secondary glazing in all our rooms which works fantastically well and will keep the noise of our buzzing city center out when you just want some piece and quiet.

Thank you again for choosing to stay with us and I hope we can welcome you back to our neighbourhood soon.

Stay Original,

Dominic

Dear Malgmalk,

Thank you very much for taking the time to write about your experience at the Turquoise Thistle restaurant, bar and lounge at Hotel Indigo Edinburgh.

Our head chef Dan is extremely passionate about the fantastic ingredients that are available on our door step and you can certainly taste this in all our dishes.

Why not come in and try our Afternoon tea with champagne the next time?

I had a dinner with friends and one night stay at this new very stylish property. A la carte menu was something amazing. Very innovative and appealing options, it was hard to choose. Set menu did not look disappointing as well. The size of chips that came with steak was something out of this world! And the winelist had some reasonably priced wines, which I was happy about, especially Malbec, which went very well with our steaks.
The only minus I could spot in Indigo hotel was service in restaurant and bar. Felt like staff were lacking experience and did couple mistakes, which was quite odd for such a luxurious hotel. However they were pleasant and looked like trying hard.
The room was fantastic! The amenities were quality, so were the robes (very soft), whole interior and bathroom facilities were best you could expect. Breakfast room service and food was flawless. Restaurant team did great job by being personal and chatty yet professional. And we felt that immediate (about one hour after delivery) breakfast trays pick up was a nice touch. Our stay was smooth and very enjoyable, would recommend to anyone
