              Discreet and grown up.

              Took slightly longer than we liked to have breakfast order taken on 2nd morning of stay.

            • Older travelers
              10.0

              This hotel is truly outstanding. The hotel is luxurious, the rooms are spacious and well-appointed and the food is just amazing, but what really makes this hotel something special are the staff. The utterly professional, highly trained butlers and reception staff make every moment of your stay an absolute joy. The butlers manage to get the balance just right - on hand for your every need but understated and discrete at all times. Perfect. This hotel really is impressive and I can't wait to visit again.

              Internet access was a bit of a problem. Although each room has wired internet access, many people now have wireless-only devices but because of the thick walls the Wi-Fi signal is very patchy. A few Wi-Fi boosters would easily sort this problem.

              Everything was wonderful, luxurious and friendly. Great place to stay.

            • Older travelers
              9.2

              Comfortable, peaceful and relaxing but within a short taxi ride of the shops and attractions. Pleasant and helpful staff always available.

              Lack of rails in the bath and shower - essential for elderly people!

              Excellent service throughout the stay we felt as though we had our own personal butler. Afternoon tea was superb!

              2 night last minute stay, staff very accommodating, room excellent. Altogether a very pleasant experience. Will go back again I'm sure.

              The service was friendly and the staff could not have done more to make our stay as relaxing as possible

              The food is good, don't get me wrong but I thought it would be better for the price

            • Single
              10.0

              Fantastic customer service, like going back in time to when hotel staff really care about the customer. Also a good location. I will be staying here again for sure. Don't worry too much about facilities being as old as the building, they have a great wi-fi service too.

              Room was little cold, but this is a 'feature' off this type of old building.

            • Older travelers
              10.0

              This is the most incredible hotel, from the greeting at the taxi by the butler, to resting in the drawing room with drinks to your order by the butler, to any questions about the area, to making any reservations you desire. They will even unpack your bags. The eve meal is 5 star, with very knowledgable butlers even about the Scotch! The scottish accents amazing. They were always willing to talk! I hope to come back often! The butlers were worth the price of the hotel!!

              Nothing I did not like! This place was amazing.

              The staff were very helpfull, without being overbearing. There was nothing we lacked in our 2 night stay. We were within walking distance of Rose St. Lothian Road, The Royal Mile---and yes my wife has problem feet.

              Our "complaint" is only meant to be constructive. A shower could be incorporated with the bath--for hair washing. There could be handles or other means of support for getting a 69yo out the bath. The bathroom was lovely otherwise.

            • Older travelers
              9.6

              The only other hotel in which we have stayed where we couldn't find at least some minor fault was the Q.E.2 ( nolonger with us). So all we can say is simply the best.

              Great hotel with welcoming and efficient staff. Super breaklast served on hot plates! Would stay here before any large chain hotel

              The Howard is a lovely hotel with charming and attentive staff, fabulous food and very well appointed rooms. The service was excellent and I would have no hesitation in recommending this hotel to others or returning again! Especial thanks for finding and booking us a table in a beautiful restaurant with great views of the castle on Easter Sunday evening!

              First time we have stayed in The Howard . Superb service from all the staff , nothing was too much trouble. Food excellent, room and bathroom really well appointed. Will definitely return

              Whilst the quality of the breakfast is excellent, service from the kitchen was a little slow on two of the three mornings.
