Me and my partner stayed here earlier this year. We got a fantastic upgrade, the room and bathroom was huge, very modern and comfortable. The staff were welcoming and friendly. The location is great as its a short walk to shops, bars and restaurants. Would highly recommend.

I was taken here for my birthday and not one for modern hotels this was fabulous. A lovely member of staff booked us in (whilst I was admiring the wallpaper) and took us along to our room (again I was paying more attention to the decor than where I was going). We walked down to corridors and a small flight... More

I booked an executive double room for my girlfriends birthday and the room was huge with beautiful high ceilings- the bathroom was also a great size. The website advertised robes and slippers which were not in the room upon arrival but we were provided with these when we asked reception. The room had everything we needed- ironing board, trouser press,... More

A really pleasant stay with all the staff we encountered fabulous and very friendly. We'd read some poor reviews regards the breakfast so didn't have high expectations but... More

At the time I made the booking for this hotel, I originally, did not realise that my wife and I would be visiting Edinburgh and staying the night when the Scots were going to decide on the state of the Union! But we were visiting for other reasons. Since we had been disappointed with another hotel recently, I decided we... More

Wasn't sure what to expect after reading many of the more recent reviews however my visit in early October 2014 with friends turned out very well. We had 2 Executive Double rooms, 410 and 412 which are on the top floor at the front of the hotel. Spacious rooms with huge bathrooms and all well appointed as well as being... More

Reception staff were extremely welcoming, friendly and efficient and the level of service generally and communication prior to arrival was of the highest order. Yes, though its location is ultra-urban.
