I spent 2 nights over a long weekend in this hotel and it was a pleasant and realxing stay. The hotel room had all the usual amenities and although we had a view from the back of the hotel that was not really a problem as we only spent our evenings and mornings in the room.
The service on arrival was prompt and efficient and we were booked in without bother. Our room was clean and tidy, and quiet despite being on the bustling Royal Mile. It had all the usual amenities and we didn't find anything to complain about A nice bathroom and a massive bed completed an overall pleasant place to rest and scrub up. There was a nice bar which I had a quiet last night drink in away from the hectic local scene; and a spa (which we never made it to but looked lovely).
It was centrally located next to one of the main bridges in Edinburgh and we could walk to the castle in five minutes and across to Rose and Princes Streets within ten. I have rated this very good as it is definitely above average. It was quite pricey (compared to our normal hotel choices) though as it was for a 40th Birthday and although there was nothing to complain about on our stay it just seemed to miss that certain something you might expect for the higher price. That said though it is architeturally stunning from the outside and pleasant enough on the inside.
I would certainly recommend this to 95% of tripadvisor readers as a vey nice, comfortable and central hotel. The 5% looking for something special or different for a short romatic break away may do better to forego the convenience and look for something a little more niche, bijou, and unique - with a bit less forceful corporate identity.
