We had been in Edinburgh shopping which had been packed and hot. On leaving town we took the quick route and stopped at this hotel. From the front you would not think it had a large garden at the back with tables and chairs for drinks. My husband asked if the dog could come in too and was accepted. We... More

The location of this hotel is fantastic set in a quiet leafy street in Edinburgh. It is set back from all the main roads and has a distinctly country house feel to it! There is a garden outside which we sat in enjoying the last of the evening sunshine whilst drinking a large cold glass of wine. Our room was... More

The hotel looks great from outside and the entrance and downstairs is very nice too. The staff are friendly and serice is good- a special thanks to Dean on the Front Desk and Michael the F and B Manager. The breakfast was very good and at a reasonable price also. The bedrooms as other guests have said need some TLC.... More

Thumbs up for location and staff. Thumbs down for room. The hotel is reasonably well located. Centre of town is 15 minutes away by bus. We paid 160£ per night without breakfast for a run down bathroom and a barely adequate room. The property is an old heritage house and while public areas have been refurbished to some extent, guest... More

This is a very good place to stay, very affordable, with superb decent caring staff, always willing to go the extra mile and genuinely interested in making guests feel welcome, and top-notch when dealing with any crisis. Yes, it's an old hotel, and needs updating in places, something which is being done, but they have the basics, the core of... More

My girlfriend and I stayed here in November 2013 when we visited Edinburgh for her 30th birthday. The stay was excellent. The restaurant & bar areas were welcoming and cosy. The food was great. I called in advance to upgrade the room and have a bottle of champagne in the room on arrival this was done and some strawberries also... More

Stayed there for two nights, were originally showed to the disabled room, which was a small double aspect ground floor room which overlooked the entrance/car park. Only 1 window opened, only a couple of inches, there were no net curtains or blinds so curtains had to be shut for any privacy, the divan base had a large stain on it,... More

Fancied a weekend in Edinburgh for wedding anniversary. Was looking for something with more character than a holiday inn or travel lodge, but still close to the city. The website showed a night floodlit entrance with ivy walls etc. The hotel does have both of these and the ground floor promised exactly that. The staff from reception to waiting were... More

Really loved staying at this hotel. Everyone was so nice and helpful. I was alone in a city while my husband was in Hospital and all of the staff made me feel at ease. For an extra £8 a day, I was able to take my puppy. Well worth a stay and I am going again this month, this time... More

I stayed here with my daughter when we went to Murrayfield for a concert. I paid a lot for this hotel and had high expectations. My daughter and I were very excited. It was quickly apparent on arrival the hotel price had been hiked up considerably due to the concert and it simply wasn't worth it. Extortionate price which blatantly... More
