Great hotel! Been there three times! Great rooms! Great service day and night!!! The breakfast is really good! Only thing is, you need to go across the street to get your breakfast, but apart from that food is great!

Breakfast was across the road at a French style cafe and was just lovely with great coffee! all in all, this was an excellent hotel, my only quibble was that the room... More

Nice quiet clean hotel in excellent location, not the best facilities and restaurant is over road in separate building but somehow seems to add to the personality of the establishment, had a thoroughly enjoyable stay and would certainly recommend.

My friend and I just spent a week at this nice hotel. A small but quiet place in town. So conveniently located! At first we thought it looked dark and we had to walked up few steps to get to the reception. Then we realised that it was such a nice place to stay in this beautiful city. The receptionist... More

We booked this hotel purely because of it's superb location to the amenities of the city, and were not disappointed, barely a few steps from the bars of Rose Street and a glorious selection of restaurants, it was also perfectly located for the train station and local buses. The room was perfectly adequate, although nothing to shout home about. We... More

This is a rather dated hotel with limited services. You have to cross the road & walk down the street to 'Ricks' for a buffet breakfast where the food can be somewhat less than freshly cooked if you attend during the latter period of availabilty. This together with a very slow single lift & just being handed the key to... More

I stayed for two nights in this excellently placed hotel. I had to change room after the first night (I didn't have a reservation and asked for one more night in the morning). Both the rooms were clean, tidy, spacious and really comfortable. The staff was very kind, helpful and friendly. The hotel is located in the centre of the... More

Very well located at reasonable prices in the centre of Edinburgh, this hotel is ideal for business or pleasure. The rooms were clean and everything worked well. The staff were very helpful, and both receptionists I met were professional and provided excellent customer care. I was here on business so it did not matter which room I had as long... More
