Pillars House, Edinburgh
A hidden gem
Absolutely loved this little gem. The people running it are absolutely lovely and we'll definitely stay here again if we get back to Edinburgh. Also travelled with a baby - crib provided on site and everything accommodated for him.

Nice place to stay
The staff were very friendly and helpful. The room was small but comfortable. It was a bit of a walk to downtown and old town but doable.

A place to lay your head
This is walking distance to the royal yacht, but a car or transport is needed to see other sites. The room was good as it could accommodate three people in separate beds, which seems to be a difficult proposition in Europe.

Comfortable, good Pillars House
Would stay there again, clean, comfortable, good service and help!
A Traveler, us1 night romance trip
Pillars House, Edinburgh
Stayed there for 1 night on our way out of Edinburgh. Our overall rating would have been better if the room was thoroughly clean. Maybe it was just our room (above the reception office) so I can't say much for the rest of the hotel. Hostess kindly accommodated our non-feather/down bedding request, which was nice.
