I found this hotel on a travel comparison site and we got a really good deal. We had never been to Edinburgh before and booked it based on its central location. We were celebrating our 10th wedding anniversary and a birthday and had said so on our booking. We were greeted by friendly and helpful staff with glass of Prosecco. That was a really nice way to start our break. When we arrive in our room, there was a card and a cake from the hotel congratulating us. How nice! Sometimes its the little things that mean a lot.
We had booked an executive room, which was nice, large and clean, with a good view of George Street. The only down side was that on the Saturday night, the noise from the local night clubs was quite loud and went on until about 4am. It may be worth taking some ear plugs with you if you're not a night owl.
Breakfast was good. The restaurant was busy but the staff managed well.
We had a lovely stay and I would definitely recommend the hotel and would certainly go back if we were to visit Edinburgh again.
