Even despite the ongoing renovations we had an amazing 4 day stay. The staff from the front desk to the concierge and cleaning crew were really helpful and nothing was too much trouble. Have stayed before and will again!

Booked for a 30th Birthday visit to Edinburgh and choose the hotel after a stay in the Birmingham Blu. Booked a business class room thinking it would have the wow factor but was sorely let down. The room was tiny dusty and cold but we just left our bags and went out for the day. Upon return whilst making our... More

Stayed here for a weekend for valantines day. Had dinner at the hotel and was impressed with the quality. The location of the hotel is great , right on the royal mile with most attractions being within walking distance.

I have been staying here for 4 weeks so far and will be here for at least a further 4-6 weeks. I have travelled the world on business for the past 30 years and stayed in many fine five star hotels - particularly in Asia - but reason I am staying here long term is the young, enthusiastic and dedicated...

Hotel is in very good location for sight seeing, food is good but general housekeeping really let's the hotel down. There was no towels in our room, the cups had lipstick on them, the carpets are filthy and whilst in the lounge in the evening when I went to the loo all five cubicles were out of loo roll.

Just back from 2 night stay for the 6 nations rugby! Staff very friendly and room of good standard as well as good food downstairs (particularly steak). Brilliant location and only small walk from landmarks such as Edinburgh castle and grass market. Only downside was that food, drink and room were slightly overpriced however this was expected considering location. Saying... More

Excellent rooms, food and service, always clean, good bar with snacks if you don't want the restaurant, a relaxing place to chill out after a day on the town, good parking underneath the hotel, which is rare in Edinburgh.

Enjoyed our stay at this hotel. It was a present from our daughter and we had a room on the 5th floor and it was very comfortable indeed. Breakfast was lovely and we had the additional bonus of parking at the hotel which was included in our room price. I left a couple of chargers in the room. I called... More

I have passed this hotel on a few occasions and thought it looked great from the outside and that it had one of the most enviable locations in Edinburgh, right on the Royal Mile.
