History of the hotel

The buildings the Bonham Hotel now occupy have a fascinating history dating back to the mid-19th century and were originally constructed as 3 separate townhouses in 1872. The houses were occupied by well to do families and their servants for the next 60 years, enjoying the privacy of Drumsheugh Gardens and the ease of access to everything Edinburgh had to offer.

In 1939 the houses were sold and became collectively known as the "Private Clinic", a private medical practice specialising in maternity care. Over the next 12 years many hundreds of babies were born on the premises, now fondly known as "Bonham Babies" when they come to visit.

Wendy, Somerset, stayed: January 2020

This hotel is very well located in Edinburgh's fashionable West End, an easy and pleasant walk into town. Inside you are in a sophisticated and opulent town house. The room we had was spacious and very comfortable. Lovely bed linen and a huge bed. However the staff are not efficient which lead to us feeling under valued during check in and check out.The hotel did not fully understand the package we had booked and this led to embarressment, At no time did I feel like a guest, just a client using facilities. I think the hotel needs to work to make hospitality as important as its interiors.

Perfect location for a weekend break in Edinburgh

PH, stayed: December 2019

Loved the venue, wonderful welcoming staff and beautiful room. The bar was a bit slow and staff seemed to keep walking past us and neither cleared our table from the previous customers nor asked us if we wanted a drink. We ended up going up to the bar and then waited for a member of staff to come over to get our order. It was busy being the weekend before xmas and the reason we waited as long was apparently because there was a big party in taking priority. This was the same reason for slow service with drinks at the restaurant. We had almost finished our main course before the wine arrived. Saying that the food and drinks were lovely when they came. Restaurant lacked a bit of atmosphere also.

AS, stayed: June 2019

We booked this for a sixtieth birthday trip to the opera with my daughter. We had a lovely dinner on first night, and a reasonable breakfast the next day. We were advised when we arrived that breakfast was served until half past ten but the second day ( Monday) this changes to 10- so we missed our Scottish breakfast- nobody except me was much bothered!
The hotel is clean and comfortable, but it is lacking atmosphere- perhaps a little stuffy- It felt a little like a middle class establishment in the 1950s. lacking facilities one expects these days- no spa, no gym. However, most people are out most of the day seeing the city.
Staff are pleasant but not friendly. And if you don't watch out you may miss your breakfast!
