This is a great hotel for a city break - it’s close to all the main attractions, large rooms, comfy beds and towels changed every day. We didn’t have breakfast so can’t comment on this - each room does have a fridge if you wish to use it. I would recommend asking to be on a higher floor if possible.

Terrible customer service. Booked as a party and was moved locations without explanation and my room was on a completely different floor than the rest of the party. Used toiletries in the room. Filthy shower and lipstick on the dressing gown. Not up to cleanliness expected. Forgot toiletries and told they don’t offer any complimentary package or shower cap. No social distancing applied.

Winchester, United Kingdom1 contribution
Hotel was comfortable. Staff were pleasent and very helpful. Very good fitness centre. Room was comfortable though with limited natural light - many of the rooms are in a modern annexe behind the main building and below the level of the reception. Excellent location within easy walking distance of, for example, Calton Hill, the Museums and Galleries, Holyrood, The Castle and New Town. Close to the tram and the Airport Bus as well as Waverley Station. Good range of places to eat nearby. Would stay there again.
