This hotel has a convenient location close to the Castle and City Centre. The rooms are stylish and well equipped with decent bathrooms which are modern and clean. Breakfast in the 5th Floor restaurant is a highlight as it overlooks the Castle. Staff are always very helpful and the rooms are usually good value. My room was at the front... More

Staff on reception and bar really nice and welcoming. Asked if we could upgrade to a castle view but hotel was full so made do with car... More

This hotel in centre of Grass market is a brilliant location,on the plus side the rooms are a good size and the 5th floor restaurant for breakfast overlooking the castle are excellent.However the general hotel standards are disappointing. Toilets blocked and rubbish lying around conference facilities does not say much.

Great hotel with great staff and nice fresh rooms with a fantastic view of the beautiful edinburgh castle. Good location in grassmarket and good local bars and shops. Only bad point i could say (but is to be expected as its nearly xmas) is that its very loud in the corridors at night time and can be hard to sleep.... More

We stayed here at the same time last year and had a lovely time. We spent a little extra on a Deluxe room, with a castle view and balcony and it was well worth it. We booked the same package this year, but found the room to be a little grubby and in need of a deep clean and/or decoration.... More

Hotel were very helpful. Our rooms were changed so that we had adjoining rooms. Staff were all really cheery and pleasant. Hotel was well situated. Easy walk to princes st and taxis on hand if needed. Rooms were large and well stocked. Toiletries were really nice and plentiful.
