A memorable night
Fantastic -Ruy was enthusiastic and warm and very helpful. Our duplex room was fantastic. It made our night very special for my 85 yr old mother. Dinner was delicious as was the breakfast. Tickets to Brittania were a bonus. Overall I’d recommend and will return w/hubby.

Edinburgh Wedding
A wonderful stay on a truly beautiful ship. The cabins are luxurious, stylish and comfortable. The staff are friendly and welcoming, and the bar, restaurant and sun decks are luxurious and well appointed. The complimentary tickets to Britannia were a surprising bonus. Adding this to my list of favourite hotels in Edinburgh along with the Prestonfield and The Whitchery.

Exceptional, amazing, worth every penny. The Fingal and her crew were faultless. From walking up the red carpet. To feeling like royalty. The rooms were to an outstanding standard. Even to the finer points. Highly recommend and will be looking forward to our next voyage. Shame the Fingal is hard moored and can’t sail out into the harbour. But this is knit picking. Truly outstanding place.

A floating hotel with a difference
Beautiful unique accommodations and excellent service make this our favourite Edinburgh accommodation. With the new Tram to Leith, it's also very convenient - the stop is 2 mins walk from the boat, and 20 mins to the centre on the Tram. It's not cheap, but then quality rarely is and we enjoyed every moment aboard.
