Very Good 8.0
I use the hotel a lot, but WiFi is poor and the shower head kept falling down in Champagne Room

Good 6.0
A beautiful hotel
The hotel is beautiful, I can't fault that one bit, nor the owner who was extremely helpful. Unfortunately the problem was that we couldnt open the window and the weather was hot and therefore the room was uncomfortable. There was a fan in the cupboard but that just stirred up the heat. I'm not sure if opening the window would have helped either as my husband was also having trouble sleeping due to the traffic. We were on the main Morningside road and for that reason it was busy. I would wholly recommend

Always wonderful
The Lane is perfect. I always stay here when in Edinburgh. Easy going, attractive design, spacious rooms, excellent wifi. They'll also accept dogs.

Does not get better than this.
This was simply the best place we have ever stayed at and at the risk of sounding snobby we have stayed at many top rated hotels in the world to put it into perspective. The room was simply perfection, we actually cut our day out in Edinburgh short because we wanted to spend more time in it. The entire place makes you feel instantly relaxed and at peace. The attention to every little detail is what really made this place stand out. Accent lighting, a mirror with mood lighting that changes colour, the wallpaper in the bathroom, everything is so carefully chosen and it is obvious that whoever decorated this place knows exactly what they are doing. Snacks, drinks, and most importantly a bottle of still water in the room, at no extra cost and replenished every day, is really what made this place stand out. Again it’s the little things this place does better than anyone else and there is nothing more infuriating than arriving somewhere late at night after a long journey and then being charged £5 for a small bottle of still water. As guests we were even entitled to a free drink at the gorgeous pub downstairs. Once again, a smart move as we cancelled our dinner plans in the city centre and went to the pub instead. You treat us well we treat you well. The location is perfect, close to the city centre but the actual area it’s in is really worth exploring. Unbelievable value for money. We will be back.

Perfect stay
Great location, beautiful hotel and all round good set up- free snack room, free drink on arrival and connected to a lovely little bar with nice food, I’ll be back again soon.

Highly recommend
Lovely room, exceptionally clean and comfortable, I would definitely stay again. Although it’s not right in town the bus stops just outside and it’s less than £10 for a taxi. The only thing we regret is we didn’t have a chance to try the pub.

Beautiful boutique hotel with lots in the area
My stay at the lane boutique hotel was great. It was clean, beautifully decorated, and even had a small commentary snack jar. I was in town for an appointment as a solo traveler. There were plenty of handy things in the area within walking distance, like a grocery shop, several restaurants, and a cell phone repair that looked like it may carry prepaid SIM cards. There were also several places to find a barber or get your hair done. There is a charming little pub and a late night food fast food shop just outside of entrance to the rooms, which may be convenient depending on your mood. It does however get rather loud if you are trying to sleep on a Saturday night. I was in the blue room and the window is next to the late night restaurant- so any Saturday night commotion was easily heard. I didn’t mind as I was only there for one night and I was planing to catch an Uber to the airport at 3am anyway. I could see if you had a baby, or if you are someone who sleeps lightly how the noise from outside could be annoying. I could not complain about a thing, other than the Saturday night noise, and that type of thing you really have no control over. I would stay here again.

Nice boutique hotel
It was interesting that there's no reception desk. Before I tried to call Mark, a customer returning to his room directing us to the bar next door to find a staff. Then we got service. The room is clean. Bathroom is modern. Location is convenient.
