The location of this hotel is fantastic set in a quiet leafy street in Edinburgh. It is set back from all the main roads and has a distinctly country house feel to it! There is a garden outside which we sat in enjoying the last of the evening sunshine whilst drinking a large cold glass of wine.
Our room was actually fine - clean and the bed very comfy but it was an adjoining room and the people in the next room were very noisy until late at night so some serious sound proofing needs to be done.
Dinner in the hotel was lovely and I can thoroughly recommend it. We didn't really get to sample breakfast as although we had been told that breakfast was from 7am it appeared not to be and we just had a very basic breakfast of cereal and toast.
We were made very welcome by all the staff and I cannot fault their attentiveness but shall I return? Possibly once all the refurb is done and this tired old hotel is given some TLC.
