Wonderful. Every necessary luxury, but understated, not flashy. Service extraordinary--friendly, competent, routinely went the extra mile -- or two. Like being in a really comfortable home where your every need is anticipated and taken care of. Truly amazing food. I would love to stay there again.

I stayed at The Howard from 23rd of April till 27th og April this year. The hotel is a gem, with atmosphere and friendly service, and I would recommend it to all my friends. And if I go back to Edinburgh, I would definitely look for a room at the Howard.
