The Rooms

All 49 individually styled bedrooms have retained period and character townhouse charm but thrown in quirkier, unique details. Wood panelled intimate rooms complete with fireplaces are filled with bold fabrics, feature walls and vibrant colours creating modern hotel rooms sympathetically linked to their past. For the best views, ask for a room at the back.

The Rest

Blending bold touches and maintaining an essentially Victorian feel, The Bonham is a truly unique hotel. With only 48 rooms it benefits from the professionalism of a larger hotel and the intimacy and attention to detail of a boutique. Impressive features include the evocative spiral staircase. The hotel restaurant serves up modern locally sourced Scottish food and has been recognised with 2 AA rosettes. Sample it for yourself taking advantage of pre-booking offers or stroll 5 minutes into the city centre.

The Cost

Prices vary by season and availability so you have to check the website for accurate pricing. However, it's only the Petite and Double rooms that fit into our price promise - perfect for whiling away a weekend away...
