I belong to the ROSL club in London ant it is very good so I decided to use their facilities in Edinburgh and the experience was really satisfying. The club is very well positioned, 5 minutes walk from the train station, on the main shopping street. From there, you can walk to the museums, such the National Gallery and the... More

We stayed here for 3 nights Bed & Breakfast. The breakfast was first class with a good menu. Our room was at the front 3rd floor. Room 2 and overlooking the Castle. It was our Wedding Anniversary so we had Evening Dinner on one night. It was first class. If you ask for this room and a light sleeper you... More

This hotel is in a great location right in the middle of Princes St, we had a room at the front of the hotel and although it was a little noisy at night, the fantastic view of Edinburgh Castle made up for it! The room was quite small but was very clean and comfortable, the bathroom had new shower fittings.... More

The most convenient location to explore the wonderful city of Edinburgh. A very pleasant hotel that I was not aware of previously but now would most certainly stay here again. The large room was very clean and comfortably furnished. We had a rear facing room so no view but considering the centre of the city very peaceful. The breakfast was... More

This hotel is in an amazing location in the middle of princes street. Our room had a view of the castle which was an added bonus. The room was a good size and the it was quite a traditional style hotel. Tea and coffee facilities (always good!) and it was clean. The food was also really good at breakfast. Fresh... More

Couldn't ask for a better location right in the middle of Princess St and only a stones throw from the train station. Breakfast is all freshly cooked to order, a wide selection to choose from and can't be faulted. Staff were so helpful and knowledgeable on anything that was asked. We had room 1 which is at the back so... More

Booked using a website, the price was very reasonable for the location - on Princes Street and looking out towards the Castle. The entrance was unprepossessing and not attractive, between two shops. The room was at the top of the building, on the 5th floor. The lift only went to the 4th floor. There was a sloping roof in the... More

Me and my Mam stayed here for 2 nights after purchasing a deal on Living Social. On arrival we found the staff welcoming and we had booked our inclusive Afternoon Tea which we had in the bar area. We were amazed at the size of the Afternoon Tea and staff were very accommodating with our dietary requirements and letting me... More
