I stayed here last week with my boyfriend and our 8 yr old son. The hotel is beautiful, from the bar to the bedrooms. The bed is extremely big and comfy and the room has everything, mini bar, I pod, DVD player, high power hairdryer and GHDs. We didn't eat in the hotel, but did have a few drinks, which... More

The jewel in the crown is the staff who are all superb. The rooms are modern and clean and the beds and linen are also superb.Toiletries and bathrobes and everything you could wish for in the mini bar. Our only complaint was the music in the dining room which was head splittingly loud and not music for dining to. It... More

Excellent service from when we checked in until we checked out. It was the second time we'd stayed here and it was faultless again. Room was beautiful, bed extremely comfortable. Impressed with the quality of the furnishings. Dinner was beautiful ( the potato and leek soup was so thick you could stand on it - extremely tasty), all servings on... More

On arrival the staff were very helpful and we were really impressed with the room. The meal was lovely but we were disappointed to be told that the sea bream had been replaced with a much cheaper fish. I ordered it anyway but it was bland. Everyone else enjoyed their meal. The waitress was friendly and service was great. The... More

We stayed here for a weekend break for our daughters 21st Birthday. The food was excellent, presentation was spot on, helpings plentiful. Atmosphere was good. The rooms clean and very comfortable. Breakfast very scrummy. Staff very friendly nothing any bother. Would highly recommend this hotel and would definitely go back.

Stayed here in November 2013 with my wife as a birthday treat. Arrived on a Saturday afternoon, reception/bar & restaurant area were heaving. Not a problem for us, checked in and grabbed a bite to eat at the bar before heading to our room. Bar staff are very knowledgeable of the large cocktail menu, and with the wide array of... More

Very shortly after you stayed with us we carried out full maintenance to all the rooms, to ensure the standards we aim for were being achieved. The maintenance included re-tiling of all broken tiling, re-grouting, new shower curtains, as well as... More

What a lovely, friendly hotel. My daughter had her interview for Edinburgh Uni and we decided to make the best of our time in beautiful Edinburgh. Room was spotless, dinner was perfection and breakfast was totally to die for - highly recommend the poached eggs! Everything about my stay was perfect from checking in until breakfast and check out.
