    On arrival we were greeted by the receptionist / bar person and She was the nicest and most helpful young woman I have ever met. I would highly recommend the Hotel Minto , its excellent !!

  • Group of friends

    we where asked to state if we wanted a twin or double room when we booked.the only place to put this info was on the comments which we did but the hotel charges us extra for not telling them we wanted a twin room???

    Manager offered a free meal in the bar after a few hassles with the room alocation.

    Hotel didn't have our request for a cot so we were allocated a very small double. After some rearranging they managed to find us a cot and a room big enough for it, just. They seemed a little disorganised in the booking department and we witnessed another couple being offered accommodation somewhere else as the hotel had no record of their booking.

    The staff were all really freindly always ready to help with any request or inquiry, the location from the hotel to the town was excellent with taxi avaliability or bus route every 10 minutes, the hotel was clean and tidy at all times, excellent

    There was nothing that we didnt like about the hotel, we would definately use it again, and certainly recommend it

    It was quite expensive especially considering breakfast was not included

  • Group of friends
    7.4

    Friendly staff. Great breakfast. Convenient for the office.

    Didn't have a chip-and-pin device so paying by card meant that they wrote down the CVU number, which is against the rules.

  • Older travelers

    Staff were very polite and helpfulGood bus service to centre of Edinburgh

    Room very cramped and decor poor. Very low quality toilet paper and tissues. Plumbing very slow to drain

    The bar was good and the bar staff friendly. The general manager was professional and listened to my complaint about other factors we were unhappy about and gave us a discount.

    The room was far too small and only suitable for single occupancy. We stayed in room 5. the furniture was too big for the room. We could not open the wardrobe drawer fully or the drawers inside it. The chair was too tall for the dressing table so you could not get your knees under it and you had to duck to see through the mirror. There was only one bedside table as room only suitable for single bed and you bumped into each other. The breakfast was a shambles and it took an hour to get served and everyone got the wrong breakfast when it finally arrived. Disappointed to find that there are similar reviews on the website so lessons have not been learned. However, I spoke to the manager before I left to complain. She accepted what I said, was not defensive and very professional so hopefully changes will be made.

    The hotel was modern and inviting. The staff made us feel welcome. Breakfast was lovely and the restaurant staff very attentive.

    The hotel was nicely kept and room was pleasant.

    Unfortunately due to the fact that we stayed there during large events in Edinburgh, we fell victim to being held to ransom over ridiculous room rates paying double what the room would normally cost. Only other downside was that we had to return a breakfast as part of it had not been cooked properly. The plate was brought back a few minutes later in the same condition and told "that's the colour sausages are supposed to be!".... In their pre-cooked state perhaps!

    I enjoyed the family function that was booked at The Minto Hotel, they seemed well organised for functions.

    The room we had was very small, so much so that the only place we could keep our suitcase was in the wardrobe. There was not enough space to move around the room comfortably. On our second day I ordered tea & toast for breakfast in the dining room. I waited 30 minutes to receive a pot of tea and after 1 hour 15 minutes & two polite reminders about my toast I left without being fed. The service at breakfast was very poor, & the waitress did not seem to be in a rush to attend to anyone in the diningroom. I know that several other people staying on the same weekend as me have also complained. I do not feel we had value for money at The Minto.

    The accomodations were very small for a family room. Basically they just shoved three beds into a small room and called it a family room. They were quite accomodating when I would not accept those accomodations. The lighting in our room was terrible. But even worst was the lighting inthe bathroom. It was impossible to put on makeup in the bathroom as the lighting was so poor. The shower did not work and in fact stopped while I was taking a shower. They actually made me come to the front desk in my towel and robe to recieve a new key for another room to finish my shower. I wanted them to bring me the key but they said they could not leave the front desk. They call themselves a boutique hotel. They would be fine for one person in a little cell the most two people but they should definetely not advertise for a family room.
