We had a superior room which was a good size with very comfortable beds. These are the good points...... Even though I had correspondent with and spoken to the hotel prior... More

Throughout my stay I kept feeling the hotel was more suited for my Grandma then for a business traveller. Just based on the decor, limited technology and attitude to service. The location is great but my room was very cramped and the bathroom tiny. The creaking floor boards outside my room did a good job in disturbing my sleep each... More

First, location is perfect, I love that, walked everywhere. The staff were friendly and helpful and responsive. No restaurant, not a problem, great restaurants all around, they did have a fine breakfast and a room for cocktails and room service. Room was filled by King bed so felt somewhat cramped but bath was nice. One huge issue, the room had... More

Lovely huge room with very small en suite bathroom but fine for all your needs. The rooms were clean and spacious with interconnecting doors for our young family. The location was absolutely superb and the reception staff and door staff were ultra helpful.

Lovely hotel in an ideal location for all the tourist attractions, bars, restaurants and station. Can't fault the room, modern and clean. Breakfast staff could of been more helpful (and more smiley). However, was a perfect trip for me and my boyfriend. Would recommend.

A very nice, traditional hotel, with very good, professional staff, set in an excellent central location. Minor comments would be that the standard rooms aren't massive, and the layout is a little strange but as it is a listed building that is par for the course. People have complained about the restaurant and bar being refurbished and out of use...... More

Staying in New Town

Neighborhood Profile
New Town
Suits and shopping bags rule the streets of New Town, until after dark when strappy dresses come out to play. This is the city’s central business district with its smaller offices, clothes boutiques, and many of the city’s flashiest restaurants and ritziest clubs. The architecture along roads like George Street helps give it a swank and formal feel: it’s a planned Georgian development of regal townhouses, geometric squares, and self-important statues. But it’s also a very wanderable neighborhood, with a healthy bustle at almost any time of day and fine people-watching in places like St Andrew's Square which fills with picnickers around lunch. You’ll also find a series of cheerful basement bistros on Hanover Street, while dark Rose Street has something of the feel of an undiscovered back alley and is chock-full of characterful pubs and small independent shops.
