About the hotel

Situated in an elegant tree-lined terrace, overlooking the Firth of Forth, is the Abbey Hotel (formerly Greenside Hotel). Designed by the renowned architect William Playfair as a family town house for a wealthy merchant, this is an traditional Georgian building, built in 1820, with many of fine original features still in place. We are sorry but we do not have a lift.

Beautiful building beautiful hotel

This is our 5th visit to Edinbrough and I must say this is the nicest hotel we have stayed, we stayed in a family room wich was nice a big, double bed and two singles large bathroom with bath and shower, the children were provided with towels and toiletries as well as the adults, this hotel is set slightly back from the busy city centre but is a quick ten min walk away, breakfast in the morning was served promptly with freshly cooked food the staff were very efficient, the hotel has a very layed back feel and nothing was to much for the reception staff or the serving staff, you get what you pay for at this hotel and I would recommend it and would look to stay here again in the future
