Historical Traveller Reviews of Royal Garden Apartments Hotel
Character Apartment...would like to move in!!from A TripAdvisor Member
Great for familiesfrom A TripAdvisor Member
All I can say is wonderful-the wedding was at The Royal Physicians Hall-Queen Street-two minutes walk. Great spacious apartments-we all met up in our Penthouse the night before-great to be able to have friends and family pop by and feel all relaxed. Staff could not do enough-we managed to get an early check-in and a late departure-Mum had arranged for food and drinks to be delivered.
We had photos taken on the balcony and then outside in Queen Street Gardens-even although we were all blue with cold by this time! What fantastic views.
Very informal and great for all those with children-they offer cots, high chairs, toys, baby bath,etc and a souvenir bear.
All in all a great weekend.
Fabulous Royal Garden Aoartmentsfrom Londonjack
The staff at the Apartments were super! Every single one...nothing was too much to ask. They treated us like royalty. Nice feature is the complimentary coffee, fruit and muffins in the morning, and wine in the evening. They even gave my daughter a souvenir teddy bear. There was never a shortage of enthusiastic directionals or recommendations for eateries, etc.
Everyone paid great personal attention to whether we were feeling better, needed anything, or enoyed our days out.
To be fair to tripadvisor, we had two issues. The dishwasher was broken, but promptly fixed early the next day. By the time we returned home to the US, the manager had already mailed a letter apologizing for the inconvenience. Nice touch!
Also, I had read a review about cleanliness. The apartment itself was spotless with really nice bathrooms and kitchen. In our 2 Br, we had one bathrrom with full tub, and one bathroom with modern shower.
The housekeepers cleaned the kitchens thoroughly, and even hand-washed our dishes on the day of the broken dishwasher. I would agree the carpets throughout could use an upgrade. They were still kept clean and vacuumed, but, if I had a toddler who crawls, it might be up to par.
This place was a really great stay. Our apartment (#27) had a 3 corner view of 1. Queen street and the beautiful architecture of the Gallery, 2. long shot of Queen Street, and 3) overlooking a spectaular English Garen with backdrop of the river and Fife. The service at the hotel is 5-star which really made our vacation even better.
The location is definitely upper class vs the Royal Mile area.
After we left, we stayed in a similar establishment in London, and believe me, I really appreciated the Royal Gardens after that.
The photos on their website look exactly like the real thing. Sainsbury's is around the corner and open until 10pm. Marks & Spencers is also close by but not open as late, and there's a reasonable walk to the nearest Boots on Princes Street.
Staying in Enchanting Edinburghfrom A TripAdvisor Member
The first thing was the location-perfect! My friends and I were in heaven, Harvey Nichols and the shops in Princes Street and George Street all within 2 minutes. We were also delighted with the new bars and restaurants in George Street, not having been to the city for a couple of years, they had to be tried out. The Apartments have a discount arrangement with a couple of Restaurants, so this was ideal for girls on a budget, more to spend in the shops.
The welcome could not have been better-friendly and helpful staff, nothing was too much trouble. We had booked a two bedroom Superior Apartment that had a large lounge area, dining table and a fitted kitchen. We actually had our friends round for drinks and found that Apartments are for us now, not hotels!Staying at the Royal Garden, you can use a wonderful Health Spa which is only a 10 minute walk away and this is free.
There is also a complimentary breakfast with deliceous muffins, fruit,coffee, teas and COMPLIMENTARY WINE in the evening.
One small draw back for longer staying guests, there is not a washer/drier in the Apartment, but there is a guest laundry you can use.
I can highly recommend Royal Garden Apartments for their accommodation, their friendly staff and the wonderful location.

Home away from homefrom A TripAdvisor Member
(Why? Relocation, but being new to Edinburgh – we also arrived with tourist needs in mind!).
Helpful, friendly staff – quick to respond to requests.
Efficient cleaners – eager to please
(tip: use the ‘private’ sign as these people can start work early!).
Clean and modern facilities (café attached)
Good self-catering facilities (note: close to food stores)
Easy to use washer and dryer facilities (they provide wash powder)
Excellent location - minutes from Princes St
In our opinion suitable for anyone
We felt safe, and well cared for!
Stay Here!!!!!!!!from oceanwitch
There is an incredible deli just across the street, and the main part of town is certainly walking distance and this is definitely a walking town.
Life could not have been better!!!!

Top Local Tips for Edinburgh
food discount Use the discount voucher from your map that you can get from airport for free. Bus is cheap or you can explore the by walking.
Portrait Gallery Free and very interesting
Valvona and Croll Go to the Vincaffe on Multrees walk for the best italian food I have ever tasted. Ask them to recommend a wine to go with your food. They'll pick something fab and never ever try and sell you the most expensive one.
