The break was a present for my mother and we had the most wonderful time.

The attention to detail and service in the hotel was perfect. The food was also excellent. Will definitely return.

A Touch Of Class In "Auld Reekie!"

Stressed out on arrival due to Forth Road Bridge closure and volume of traffic.

Staff were very personable, attentive and welcoming and even offered to re-park our car after our long drive!...Star Quality. The Howard was very appealing with amazing Georgian features....a touch of class. and last but not least....The cooked breakfast was delicious with great service and attention to detail. GREAT STAY AT THE HOWARD....Hope it's longer next time!

Well located for New Town

Nice hotel with excellent reception staff very helpful.

Room small but bed very comfortable. Shame after late night the night porter advised me that breakfast finished at 10.30 when it finished at 10.00 am so I missed it.

The butler service was fantastic.

They bought drinks to the room promptly and were very attentive. The breakfast was fantastic but the room service food not as good.

Go on, spoil yourself

A beautiful hotel tucked away on a quiet street but less than ten minutes walk from Waverley station.

Superb service from all of the friendly and helpful staff. Fantastic food, great breakfast and the 7 course tasting menu in the restaurant was heavenly. The room was huge with a comfy bed, big luxurious bath and powerful shower. A wonderfully relaxing weekend away
