4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

Very comfortable rooms and nice quiet relaxing bar. Bathrooms especially nice, good power rain showers. Breakfast is especially good with good hot food and fruit options. Stayed as part of work annual party so saw plenty of the rooms. Great location, close to both grassmarket and georges street and with a great view of the castle.

Had a christmas shopping break here in early December with my Mum - stayed for two nights. One of the best hotels I have stayed in. The room was luxurious complete with our own nespresso machine! All staff welcoming and friendly. Delicious breakfast - could not fault it. All in all a very enjoyable stay - can't wait to return... More

Stayed for one night. Exceptional welcome by attentive and courteous staff. Had a castle view room but being a very light sleeper, and it overlooking Princes St., was a bit noisy - not a lot but I overlook fields at home. Good breakfast selection and again attentive staff. Excellent bar with good selection and knowledgeable bar tender. Would stay again.

Booked for a overnight stay. Check in quick and effective. Room lovely with little extras like lovely bath robes, toiletries if you forget yours. Health suite with small pool but clean, jacuzzi,steam room and sauna. Hair conditioners in showers however needed to be replenished. Peacock alley bar is a lovely place for a cocktail. The hotel is worth the hotel... More

Stayed here on a Saturday night with a friend for my 50th Birthday. We had a deluxe twin room with a view of the castle. The room was enormous with 2 double beds. Everything was pristine and the bath robes and slippers were the best I have ever used. The receptionist was very helpful and knew that we were at... More

We were fortunate enough to stay here on Hogmanay and I honestly cannot fault the hotel. The service was second to none. From the minute we parked outside the hotel and greeted by the doorman to the fast and unfussy way we were checked in was seemless. Our room overlooked the castle and was what you would expect - all... More

I stayed here with my boyfriend and our baby for 3 nights from 27th December and was really disappointed with the hotel. Having booked around 3 months in advance I asked for an early check in. We arrived at around 11am and out room wasn't ready. We were informed that it wouldn't be a long wait and that the hotel... More
