I stayed here at the end of November 2013 with my friend for a 'girly' trip to Edinburgh. The hotel has a great central location, about 10 minute walk from the train station. Very close to castle and the 'older' parts of town.
The hotel itself was very clean, although could have done with a bit of freshen up. Looks a little tired in the reception area. Other than that i cannot fault it. The staff were lovely and helpful, the bar is espeically nice with a wonderful cocktail list and the beds are almost too comfortable.
It is what you pay for and is not a posh high end hotel but it is the perfect for a weekend away and i would highly recomend it.
Oh one last thing... we did not get breckfast included with our stay, on arrival they asked us if we would like to pay extra for this but we choose not to as it was stupidly expensive (best part of £20!) there are A LOT of places to eat right on the hotels doorstep so I would recomend going out for meals.
