Stayed overnight on a sunday with a voucher we recieved for Christmas. Staff were pleasant enough but couldn't help feel as we were using a voucher we didn't get the same level of service as full payers. Asked for a double room and got twin beds pushed together right on the top floor which seemed odd to me as I'm... More

Tasty food, good location, nice setting... but service is patchy at best. Our first meal there we had one charming and attentive waiter. The other two times we have had several staff members ask us the same questions (indicating poor delegation), dirty glasses, and not bringing us requested items. One waiter actually touched my shoulder and gave me a condescending... More

We were looking for a decent place with seafood & steaks. Found Rick's just a few minutes walk from Princes Street! Warm welcome and great atmosphere! Menu was attractive and service was even better! We were delighted to be looked after by a very attentive and professional member of staff called Becky. Had a small issue with one of the... More

This hotel is in a great location in Edinburgh, a perfect place to stay during the Christmas Holidays, just a 5 minute walk to the Princes Street Christmas Market. We booked an overnight stay with 2 course dinner, a glass of prosecco and breakfast included. The staff were friendly and welcoming, in spite of the busy festive period. The room... More

We stopped in for lunch on a referral from a friend who lived in Edinburgh. At first we were put right by the door to the kitchen. This was by far the last place we wanted to be seated, we found this strange as there were plenty of other tables free in better locations. So we asked to move and... More

We didn't stay in the hotel but ate in the restaurant. Well, I booked the restaurant but was brusquely waved into the bar. The food was on a deal but the deal portions were extremely small and the food was rather cold. My friends had to return the dessert which had very little (and cold) sauce. I had been before...

We booked our one night stay in response to an internet offer and were not disappointed. Although our room and bathroom were both small, the bed was very comfortable and we enjoyed a good sleep. Breakfast was typical buffet style, perfectly acceptable if not special. Great city centre location and a perfect place for a city overnight stay.

Very relaxing restaurant with a good varied menu, including a special lunch selection. The staff are very friendly giving good service. The bar is very well stocked with a good selection of beer, wine and spirits.
