This hotel is beautiful, the room was lovely, bed huge. Everything was spotlessly clean. The bathroom was enormous with both a bath and a shower, the toiletries provided are lovely and have a social element too which i loved. The location is amazing- on the royal mile everything is right on your doorstep. From our window we had a view of the mile. We did not eat here during our stay but we had drinks both days, the staff accommodated us despite being fully booked. The cocktails were delicious! I would 100% stay here again and cannot recommend it enough!

We only stopped here for lunch during a visit to the Royal Mile, but the staff were very welcoming and friendly. Food was great and reasonably priced. The surroundings were really nice in a laid back atmosphere.

Stayed here a few times and love it. The location is ideal bustling area just down from the castle. The hotel has 9 rooms and all are lovely, the staff are friendly and helpful. The bar has live music every night and it was nice to come back in the evening to finish with a glass of red, listen to some music and then off to bed.

This is a great small, boutique hotel slap bang in the middle of Edinburgh. My room was lovely with a great finish and the little touches of tasty tunnocks wafers, bottled water and an espresso machine made this stay really comfortable. The breakfast choice was vast and the poached eggs on sourdough with bacon set me up for the day. All in all a real find.

Very centrally located for walking around. Rooms were not big but really nice, clean and charming. Bar downstairs with with food and drink. Breakfast can be added extra but there's also a great breakfast place called Larder just around the corner. The inn also has a Free drink at bar with booking. Great time!
