Visited this hotel on the 20th Dec as a night away with my husband for my birthday. Spent the day shopping before going near the hotel which was just a base for sleeping. Upon checking in we were happy with our hotel choice. Modern, clean, helpful staff etc. We headed out for dinner late evening and returned for a drink... More

The most attractive part of this hotel is that it was in the middle of most things and easy to get around. You can walk (uphill) to Edinburgh Castle from it. However, it was a typical mid-level city hotel. The rooms were medium size with a comfortable bed and nice bath - all was well maintained. The breakfast buffet was... More

Just back from staying overnight at the hotel on Sunday 14th December. This hotel, and its staff, go above and beyond what you would expect. A very high level of service, extremely efficient and friendly team, and the hotel decor is beautiful. Although refurbishment works are underway at reception this did not affect our stay. The view from the room... More

My Girlfriend and I came to Edinburgh for a long weekend away 2 weekends before Christmas. The Hotel is situated in a fantastic location, with traditional Scottish pubs just across the road (but not close enough to keep you awake at night). It is within walking distance of the Royal mile and castle, though a taxi is probably necessary to... More

We stayed 4 nights here and it was the best hotel we stayed at during our 2 1/2 week trip with the best service! The Tub was fabulous, the shower was roomy, the bed was a true King and comfy, the view of the Edinburgh Castle was spectacular, and we enjoyed the bar/restaurant. Oh...and lots of complimentary goodies; tea, coffee,... More

I have stayed at this hotel before with my husband so when my friend suggested going to Edinburgh for an overnight stay I didn't hesitate to suggest this one. From the moment we arrived early to leave our suitcases until we left after picking them up the next day the staff couldn't have been more friendly or helpful . We... More
