A truly extraordinary environment and experience! The location is terrific, adjacent to Edinburgh Castle at the top of the Royal Mile. We stayed in the Guardroom (with a view of Castle walls from the bedroom) for four nights in early May. The suite was expansive (effectively a large one-bedroom apartment), thematically imaginative/whimsical/historic, and very comfortable & quiet.
Each morning began with a generous & tasty breakfast selection (from beverages and baked goods, to fruit, cheese, charcuterie, and cereal), delivered to our dining nook and laid out by a cheerful staffmember. Each afternoon, we'd return to our room to find a replenished stock of yummy cookies, bottles of Glenlivet sparkling and still water, and a bottle of Champagne. Each evening's turn-down service included a wonderful chocolate bar.
Everyone we interacted with on the staff was very helpful and knowledgable (our sincere thanks to all of you)! Their advice on directions/distances/timing and recommendations for dining, etc, were very helpful indeed. When we had a question about the heated towel rack in the bathroom and the thermostat in the bedroom, a staffer arrived in minutes to remedy and assist.
The only thing that was a bit of a surprise was that there wasn't wifi/internet connection in the room - although we were told that it was something they were looking to address in the not-too-distant future.
On the whole: a wonderful, enchanting, indulgent, fun, memorable, and thoroughly enjoyable visit! Definitely recommend.
