I changed my hotel the night before to be in a more central location in Edinburgh and to use the gym facilities - managed to secure a very good rate (a real bonus). The hotel is about a 10 min walk from Waverley train station and is easy to find. On arrival, the service was quick and courteous. My room was located in the basement (room number 002 - ensure you do not have this room). Although the room was modern, nice and spacious with a very nice LG flat screen TV and had a nice shower room, during the night my sleep was disturbed by movement on the floor above and did not need the alarm call!
At breakfast the following morning, it was a pleasant surprise not to have to make my own toast and you could order a Scottish breakfast or have something lighter if you so wished. The restaurant staff were very helpful.
With reference to the gym, kindly note it is small with only two running machines and a cross trainer plus some weights. It is however, available 24 x 7 and when I used the running machine in the morning before breakfast, I was the only person in the gym.
Despite the issue with the room, I would recommend this hotel and look forward to returning both on business and with the family.
