Individual guest reviews

  • Great location to City Center and extremely efficient bus service for all else. Very nice traditional hotel and all in all, a good stay and I would return to Overseas House. Restaurants catering to every sort of cuisine is available nearby and the staff are very friendly and helpful. The breakfast was excellent, especially the haggis and the portions are large.

    Reception area a bit old fashioned, the price is a little bit expensive for the overall quality of the rooms and a placement over the window clasp would have been better.

  • I loved its location, plenty of resturants/pubs within a short walking distance and the hotel is near to transport links. The staff are all lovely and breakfast is good.

    Business centre closed and cost of car parking in central Edinburgh. Not a friendly service and dirty windows. The elevator broken, some outdated facilities.
