Positive Reviews


Young and friendly staff.

Those who stayed at Salisbury Green found the young staff to be very friendly and attentive, proving very helpful whenever the opportunity presented.


Bus, walk downtown, next to Holyrood Park.

You will find the location to be very convenient for Edinburgh, located a 20-minute walk from the old town and the Royal Mile — or an even quicker trip by bus. People also appreciated being next door to Holyrood Park and Arthur’s Seat and said the free parking was also a plus.


Charming old building, comfy rooms.

Guests considered the old mansion to be a charming and beautiful thing, with lots of details, quirks and personality, while the rooms were found to be clean, quiet, spacious and comfortable.

Negative Reviews


No lift in hotel.

A few of those who stayed at Salisbury Green would have liked to have had a lift to help with luggage, and while this seemed to only be a minor issue, those who are not so mobile should keep this in mind.


Rooms and surroundings not what expected.

The modern interior of the rooms were not what some guests were expecting given the appearance of the exterior, while this university-run hotel is part of a campus complex, has its reception next door and a few people said it did not have the boutique feel they were expecting.
