The hotel was very convenient to the train station where my wife and I arrived from London; about a 2 block walk, and also convenient to old town and new town shopping areas. We had notified the hotel in advance that we would be checking in late and got an email confirmation which put me at ease before we even... More

Only a 1-night stay, so my experience may not be a true reflection. This is a much "newer" than its Grassmarket sister hotel. It is well located for shopping, Waverly Station (6 minute walk with luggage), and Calton Hill. Check in welcome was neither friendly nor unfriendly. My room was average European sizes, but well and comfortably appointed. Comfortable bed.... More

Me & my girlfriend stayed here for a short 2 night stay in Edinburgh, it's an excellent location not too far from anywhere. The royal mile is just over the bridge and new town and shopping is within easy access down princes street. Most of the city attractions and sights are very close making this an excellent choice for exploring... More

Fantastic hotel with staff that go the extra mile - nothing is too much trouble for them and after telling them we had had to switch the date of our bookings and subsequently had to pay slightly more they offered us complementary breakfast which was lovely. The beds were very comfy and the rooms were particularly spacious with stylish and... More

We stayed two nights in a deluxe double on the top floor. Room was spacious and nicely furnished. Picture window the length of one wall with view towards Leith. Lovely view but even on 10th floor there was a lot of outside noise on the Saturday night. Location was excellent two minutes from Waverley station and 20 seconds from Princes... More

This hotel is in a great location and is in walking distance to Princes Street and the castle. The room was good but we never had a bath which I missed. Really liked the Elemis products that are in the room. We used the pool, sauna and steam room and the hotel bar, all were excellent. The staff in the... More

The spa/swimming pool is nice and it has a Steam room and sauna , the only thing it need is a Jacuzzi, it has some cold jets in the swimming pool but it's not quite the same. the rooms are nice...

Fabulous location - all Old Town and New Town places of interest are totally walkable from hotel. We were on an extended ( 2 plus week) stay and can only rave about the staff. Our room was satisfactory - I thought a little small for a deluxe king city view - but was very clean, with nice amenities and a... More

Stayed 3 nights and were given a complimentary upgrade to a suite on arrival as there were 3 of us sharing. The room was gorgeous with all the luxuries you would expect, including beautiful Elemis products. Visited the spa which was lovely and offered very reasonably priced treatments. We didn't eat in the hotel but had several cocktails which were... More

Stayed here Fri -Sun and how I wished I could have stayed for longer. Rooms gorgeous. Staff very friendly. I loved every moment here. I can't wait to return! Booked direct with hotel and got a lovely £10voucher to use where we wished so that was very nice.
