This hotel was a family trip to Edinburgh for pre Christmas. The location is perfect - walking distance to the train station, shops and all of Edinburgh. The hotel is small, not too many rooms. Breakfast is good. There is a nice snug bar area with a fire in the evening. Staff are great

Upon arrival the front desk staff were professional and kind to us. The young lady showed us to our rooms we had 2 one for our adult sons and and one for my husband and I. The boys room was very spacious since they had 2 beds in their rooms and our room was a bit tight and warm. We were there June 1, 2019 and the boys rooms they could open a window but our room the door pops open but we could not get it to pop open. My husband uses a C Pap machine and finding an outlet near the bed was difficult since the lamps connections are designed for their lamps not any kind of European outlet. House keeping came and gave us an extension cord that ran over furniture to another outlet that we could use. They were very kind to do this for us. Our breakfast for the days we were there was wonderful. Staff was impeccable . remember we were the in June 2019

Great location, particularly as we were visiting the theatre next door. Lovely big room, great air-con. Really nice cooked options for breakfast although the continental selection was very limited. Very good service.

Recently stayed for 3 nights in The Glasshouse. Absolutely no complaints and must praise the staff at this hotel, especially Jonathan. Nothing was a problem. It was my husband's birthday and we were welcomed with a lovely touch, a personalised card from management and lovely chocolates and wine! Hotel is central and within walking distance to all the main attractions and train station. I have no hesitation in recommending this lovely hotel.
