We attended the wedding of some friends at the venue and chose to stay here too. It was a very nice choice and we enjoyed the hotel, it's location, the food and the staff. You can walk from the hotel to enjoy short walks in the hills nearby

An older building in excellent shape. Very nice hotel. The staff were helpful in every way. Our room was charming and spacious; the beds were comfortable -- neither too soft nor too hard. We had a scrumptious cream tea -- the "Jean Brodie tea" -- by the fireplace in the bar, and a delicious dinner in the on-site restaurant.

Very helpful and friendly reception. room was an upgrade and expected a well kept room but we found a problem with wardrobe door sliding and also what was rather odd was the TV on the ceiling, the bed was comfortable enough. We found a problem with the breakfast, the chef seemed to not understand a fried egg, which were either...

Stayed for 3 nights over a long weekend early Dec. Would highly recommend - not just because the hotel is cosy, well appointed and staff very good, but the neighbourhood between the hotel and the city centre is something worth exploring. So glad we decided to spend less by picking a reasonably priced hotel further out of the city! The...

We were here for an overnight with breakfast. The hotel was clean and well run although reception seem to be a little understaffed. The bus stop which takes you right to the city centre is next to the hotel and costs £1.60. Breakfast had mostly everything you would want although had one of my pet hates, a self toaster which...

He was totally disrespectful to...

Nice hotel lovely room all very friendly except the restaurant had to ask many times for a drink and would not recommend the food very small and cold. Staff only interested in the American family staying at the hotel. Apart from that was nice warm and very clean

Great hotel in handy location with car parking. Very comfortable rooms/beds and plenty warm and cosy for these cold winter nights. Staff are helpful and there is good food in the restaurant. We have stayed at this hotel on numerous occasions and will continue to use it on our trips to Edinburgh.

Very good value, superbly updated furnishing and evening meal was great. Enjoy the atmosphere that this hotel creates - many larger chain economy hotels offer similar deals but they are characterless and lack atmosphere.
