Good Hotel Guide Review
In one of the New Town’s elegant terraces, within ten minutes of Princes Street yet ‘sufficiently quiet for a good night’s sleep’, the stylish Bonham is hidden within three Victorian town houses. Interiors are bold and colourful with velvet-upholstered chairs and wood panelling in the lounge, glittering wallpaper in the bar and chandeliers in the dining room, with a striking art collection throughout. At weekends, dine on brasserie dishes such as chicken with wild garlic pesto, or smoked salmon fishcakes. ‘Surprisingly large’, ‘very well-appointed bedrooms’ are elegant with muted colours and smart fabrics; all have fresh milk and shortbread; many have views to the street’s gardens or Firth of Forth.
