About the hotel
Our building dates from 1860, when built amongst the last of the New Town. We are Grade 2 Listed , which means sadly we cannot install a lift and there's a LOT of stairs, great if you are into exercise, but not so great if you aren't able bodied. Our founder was Eliza, who had spent her youth in Service, from Large Estates to Hotels to private residences.
She had vision, and was ahead of her time, when she converted our buildings from National Coal Board Offices in 1962, to an eclectic hotel with en suite facilities, TVs etc ; one of the first to do so in Edinburgh. Eliza had seen that the Ritz in London was founded by Cesar Ritz, who liked her had worked his way up , and with her sense of humour, she couldn't resist calling her hotel The Ritz! She wanted the hotel to remain as true as possible to its heritage, and as you look around, you will see a sympathetic conversion of an 1860 New Town Town House. Also it means, no two rooms are the same! And we have original cornices! It is a philopshy we like to continue in her memory, and we are in the process of some changes, which will take time, but we wish to remain true to her memory and keep it original & quirky!

Very good value
A very friendly welcome at this hotel, with all staff very willing to help.
The property itself is not in the first flush of youth, but has a definite period charm. The kettle in my room wasn't working, but was willingly swapped for one that did. For a hotel this close to the centre of Edinburgh, I consider this one very good value - btw, the price includes a continental breakfast, although this isn't mentioned on the LateRooms site (technical difficulties, apparently).
This hotel is functional but in need of updating.
We would have preferred the option of an English breakfast. Very convenient for Haymarket Station.
