My wife and I stayed at the Hotel from Friday, 13th to Monday 16th November. upon arrival we were greeted by Paul who steered us to the car park- a fantastic place to safely leave your car, in a big city. Check in was straightforward. all Covid precautions were in place at each juncture, with lots of Sanitisation points. our room was a good size and well appointed. We ate in the hotel on two nights and had three Breakfasts- each meal was superb. Excellent quality and great value for money. we enjoy the luxury of having our freshly-cooked breakfast brought to the table, rather than a Buffet. But it was the Staff who truly made our stay. each one was friendly, efficient and effective. Nothing was too much trouble. they have ensured that this will be a return venue. Well done all.

We stayed here while enjoying the Edinburgh Christmas Market. The room was well appointed, clean and cozy. The hotel was decorated beautifully for Christmas and made for a festive retreat after fun filled days exploring the city and nights enjoying the Christmas market. We only had a quick tea in the bar area, as we explored other restaurants, so I can't really comment on dining here. The location is very central to a lot of sights and very easy to walk to most things. We'd definitely stay here again on future visits.

I wouldn’t say this is a 5* hotel but great location. Stayed during lockdown & under restrictions the staff were very informative however the restaurant service was very slow. Room was comfortable but not luxurious

After a bit of a dilemma and mix up with the wrong room paul on reception couldn’t of been nicer in making my stay perfect and offering us the fabulous turret room which was amazing . The bed was so comfortable and I had a fab night sleep the first one in a long time . Paul also had some lovely complimentary chocolate strawberries sent to my room they were delicious . We will definately be staying again once COVID rules are relaxed . Would love to know what mattress I slept on so I can purchase one though 😜

Rooms are clean and spacious. Itchycoo Bar meals limited choice average taste . Totally underwhelmed by breakfast it wasn’t warm , mushrooms where dry , bacon only cooked on one side and no haggis , however they did manage a nice poached egg . Coffee was also not as warm as it should have been . Our server took on board our with complaints and was very professional about situation.
