4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

In many ways this was the perfect hotel for us, the modern décor we prefer, and in a great location, a five minute walk from Princes Street and ten minutes from the Royal Mile. Also, the breakfast was excellent, with loads of choice and very well cooked hot food, and I would have to say that every member of staff... More

4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

Spa trip was a birthday gift - which was good because £75 is a bit steep. The thermal experience was great fun, we enjoyed the different showers, saunas, steam rooms etc but missed the ice cold drenches (too old and too scared!). By far the favourite though was the hydro pools. The inside one was good but the outside one... More

The location is wonderful with full views of the castle and quick access to the centre and Princes Street gardens. Staff were attentive and subtle in their approach and the décor is lush without being overdone. The bedroom suite was luxurious and beautifully appointed with mood lighting in the bath / shower area. The air con was quiet and effective... More

I used to live in Edinburgh, and am very fond of the city, even if I don't think it's quite as outrageously wonderful as some would have you believe. I decided to go back for a short visit in March 2015, to catch up with some old friends and colleagues. I lived in various areas of the city, in varying... More

The design of the hotel is lovely - big open atriums, stylish rooms, large swimming pool, well equipped gym. BUT: The housekeeping team appeared unfocused - glasses and toiletries weren't replaced in our room, a vacuum cleaner was left out in the corridor outside our room overnight, a newspaper was left outside a room for more than 24 hours, the...

We stayed at this hotel last week from Monday to Friday for our honeymoon. We were treated to a bottle of Prosecco in our room on arrival and complimentary drinks vouchers. We had a lovely relaxing stay and enjoyed using the spa also. The staff were so friendly and polite and we cannot fault any aspect of the hotel or... More

I have never stayed at such a modern hotel. Rooms were Danish modern style. The bathrooms were so beautiful with your choice o ambient lighting colors. I felt like I was in the hotel of the future. They have an amazing indoor pool and a spa with many different treatment options. I just wish that they had a hot Jacuzzi.... More

Stay for one night on a business trip. The room was very good, though smaller than I had expected. The hotel was well located and easy to get to the airport. The gym facility was very good and modern. Breakfast in the morning was good (though not great). Really a standard hotel that works well.

Stayed for my birthday on14th March , we had a castle view room, which was lovely. Yes the bath took ages to fill - but was so deep and the mood lighting really made it so relaxing.
