Thrums Hotel Edinburgh 14/15 Minto Street Online Booking

Picture of Thrums Hotel

Located in the Newington area of the city we are 1.2 miles / 2 km from the National Museum of Scotland, to the South-West of imposing Arthur's Seat and 1.4 mile / 2.25 kilometres South-South-West of Prince street. It should take you under 1/2 an hour to walk to the latter of these. However there is also a really good bus service from just up the road that will get you into the centre in under 20 minutes, depending on traffic.

As a guest you will be treated to a friendly personal service so that this stay in Edinburgh will be a memorable one. We are in fact quite well renown for how friendly and amiable staff are here. If there is anything we can do for you it will be done with a smile and with pleasure. We want you to remember us and come back again so we aim to please all the time.

You will find us in the south side of the City very close to the Royal Commonwealth swimming pool, Hollyrood Palace and the Castle. On offer are en suite rooms, internet access and there is a large but secure private car park. Only a 1 mile walk and you are in the centre of Edinburgh and there is an excellent bus service. This particular area is well served with bars, restaurants and cafes. Most reasonable hours of the day it is not hard to find something to eat locally or a refreshing beverage!

This Guests Rating Bar for 4.0 

Rating of 4.0 out of 5  Unique ID (1565228)

Guests Name: Anonymous  Guest was travelling as: Group of adult friends

Good stuff: Our room at the Thrums hotel was clean and had personality, it was great to feel I was away on holiday in the room vs. feeling as if it was just another boring hotel room enroute to a business meeting.

Bad stuff: The water was yellow when it came out of the faucet. A bit scary, but it was explained.

Overall: The Thrums hotel will give you a good experience and a taste of Edinburgh.

Guests Name: Douglas James  Guest was travelling as: Group of adult friends

Good stuff: Clean, Well equipped and spacious with windows that could be opened if neccessary.

Bad stuff: You need to go outside and come back in to visit the breakfast room from the annex nezxt door. That would not be so good in severe weather.

Overall: As above.
