The location of this hotel is perfect for tourists as it's city centre just off of the Royal Mile but far enough back that its lovely & quiet & you get a great view of Holyrood Park/Arthurs seat if you walk just down the road 10m.
Firstly check in was easy & the receptionists were friendly & helpful on all occasions. The room was great, I was allocated a room on the executive 6th floor. With key access only to that floor.
The room was well furnished with a large bed, 2 desks, a couple of easy chairs. The bathroom had everything you'd expect including toiletries. The shower temperature was rather temperamental in the morning (my colleagues also had the same issue in their rooms) & a highlight is always the anti fog patch on the mirror.
The restaurant food is AMAZING & the steaks perfect. I'd usually not choose to eat in a hotel but this is worth staying for. The service on this occasion was rather slow.
Breakfast was also good.
Ill definitely stay here again & recommend this to other travellers.
