Birthday celebration/Shopping & dining weekend

My wife and I have stayed at this hotel on at least 4 occasions and there is no better endorsement I suppose than we recommended to friends and family for this trip. We consider it value for money, comfortable and quiet (apart from a couple of very inconsiderate, noisy guests at 4am on Sunday morning) A first during one of our stays I must stress. I have stayed at other hotels cheaper but have not returned to them. I have also stayed at more expensive hotels by way of the occasional treat but for a flying visit you can't beat The Frederick House for a centrally located, good value B&B stay.

The best thing about my stay was...

Edinburgh - it's a brilliant place - so much to see and do.

Great hotel, great location

Our room had a brand new bathroom, flat screen tv and a fridge. Some of the furniture was a bit dated, but it was all clean and smart. Great location in the middle of the New Town; walking distance of everywhere and only 10 minutes walk from the station. Breakfast served at Cafe Rouge over the road, so if you're hoping for a traditional Scottish breakfast, you'll be disappointed!

Great base for Edinburgh break

I stayed here first back in 2005 and have returned on every subsequent visit. Our room this visit had been refurbished to a good standard and was excellent value for money. Its clean and comfortable - very convenient for Princes Street but still far enough away so that there is very little traffic/street noise. Breakfast at Rick's has improved since my last visit - better choice and range of options available now. Reception staff very friendly and helpful - recommended an excellent Italian restaurant (La Piazza in Shandwick Place). Would recommend without hesitation.

Superb hotel - great location and spotless

My friend and I went to Edinburgh to celebrate my 30th birthday and stayed in a twin room at Frederick House. The hotel is superb, fantastic location just off George Street, great breakfast at Ricks across the road, and our room was big and very clean in fact the whole hotel was spotless. I couldn't fault it and would definately recommend it.

Great weekend

Group of 4 couples stayed at the hotel March 09. Great central location, plenty of places to eat and drink within a short walk of the hotel. The decor of the hotel could do with updating. The breakfast at Ricks is basic, on 2 occassions the breakfast arrived luke warm...sent back and came back just the same Hotel I would rate 4 whereas the breakfast does bring the overall rating down to abt 2.5.

Excellent hotel in Excellent location !

Great location in the city centre and Princess street,close to all attractions: castle and carlton hill,botanic garden, restaurants and shopping! Rooms and bathrooms modern and very clean with all facilities! Rooms are really quiet so we haven't hear anyone on the corridor or next room. I would definitelly come back to this hotel! We didnt like breakfast-really small portion altrought restaurant is really nice and modern and staff really nice as well, but the choise its not too big and kids portions not really good at all!
