We stayed here for one night. I emailed the hotel prior to arriving to check if I could leave our bag at reception as our train arrived early. They emailed back to say this was OK. When we arrived we were pleasantly surprised that our room was ready at 10.30am and it did have a view of the castle which we had requested. The room was OK, the bathroom was a good size especially the walk in shower. The shower did leak from the hose, but it was adequate. The only criticism is that the room is a little tired - chips off the furniture. Also the carpet could do with a good clean. The bar was nice. We didn't think the drinks were overly expensive although the glasses of wine were more expensive than normal. Can't comment on the food as it was a room only rate. The location of the hotel on Grassmarket was good. The worst thing was the noise, if a large group of people were in reception making a lot of noise this seemed to carry up the stairs and it was like a whole group of people were outside your door. The hotel did provide earplugs on each bedside cabinet so that should have given us a clue! Would I return? Not sure. Maybe, but take my own earplugs.
