This is a great wee hotel. I didn't even know it was there prior to staying. It is very close to all of Edinburgh's attractions. The rooms are lovely and well appointed. I ate in the restaurant both nights I was there and the food was very good. I was on a business trip but will definitely be back for... More

I had this hotel booked for me by my work, so when I read the reviews I wondered (enough to bring a couple of bath sheets and a kettle). As it turns out, the towels are not just "hand towels" and are a perfectly reasonable size. There was a kettle in one desk drawer and a hair dryer in another.... More

It was ok , staff friendly and welcoming, nice reception area and breakfast was good, bad points.....noises from the heating or boiler system made tapping noises all night in the room, stop serving food at 9pm so stuck if you arrive later, breakfast not included in the rate. The room was small but adequate for what we needed, good location... More

Fabulous hotel, clean rooms, polite and helpful staff. Perfect breakfast with a good choice to choose from. Ideal place to stop, close to Waverley station, but just far enough away to nice and peaceful being tucked away at the top of the hill. Lovely view across to the sea from our room. Thank you.

Great hotel in a good location - less than 5 mins to Princes street. Friendly staff who are happy to help with taxi bookings etc, and the rooms were comfortable and clean. Wouldn't recommend breakfast here as it's quite expensive and there are cheaper places to eat in Edinburgh town centre. I would stay here again.

I arrived late in the evening after an international flight. The hotel is located in an apparently quiet backstreet. The layout is rather confusing, with lots of steps and multiple levels. I wouldn't recommend this hotel for somebody with a mobility problem. The staff were friendly and the room clean, if a bit small. Details, like a shelf in the... More

This historic hotel has nice and renovated rooms. It is also very well located, with walking distance from the Edimburgh Castle as well as the train station. Beds are very soft, which can be good or bad depending on where you stand. Staff is very nice. Only warning: the elevator has been decommissioned many years ago, so if you are... More

We stayed here for a couple of nights and will definitely stay here again next time we are in Edinburgh. Although we didn't eat here at all, we found the staff to be helpful, the room was clean & well equipped... but the best thing was the bed... it has to be the most comfortable bed both my other half...
