Great hotel, good location, fabulous breakfasts, lovely staff, spoilt by constant noise from bin and delivery trucks outside. Windows closed but still kept awake. It was so bad we resorted to buying ear plugs which helped but even those didn't cure the problem. We had two adjoining rooms for a family weekend and at those prices would have expected a... More

From entering the hotel, it was clear staff were very warm and friendly. Lovely welcome. Beautiful comfy rooms. Food amazing! Felt at home, although Hotel is big but it has cleverly captured that small hotel class and feeling. Situated perfectly for sightseeing, shopping, and huge variety of restaurants. The George Restaurants food is to die for. Thank you for making... More

Hotel room very comfortable and clean. Despite being very central (less than 5 min walk to Princes St) the hotel wasn't noisy at night. Choice of cooked or continental breakfast with no waiting for tables. Would visit again.

Stayed here for one night . Rooms are just perfect. Toppers on the mattress, heating/ cooling just as you would like. Fluffy towels. Staff friendly but professional; & breakfast, I defy you to find better. No need to say more. xXx

Good room (401) if a bit small. Courteous staff. Clean room with good selection of tea coffee etc. Good location for central Edinburgh. Excellent shower and good quality towels. TV a bit old but why would you watch it when there is so much to do in the city?
