Easy access for public transport, good location for sight seeing around edinburgh. Bars & restaurants right outside. Hotel staff friendly, clean & comfortable stay. Covid guidance adhered to. Please tell stay and would stay again.

We loved our stay at the hotel, we were in the deluxe room with balcony which was amazing. Great views and a very romantic setting. The room itself was very clean and comfy and no complaints there. Breakfast was amazing too everything you could want. We used the pool once in the stay which was good, had to book in advance due to covid so didn't get to use it as much as we would have liked due to it not being available but understandable. Also reccomend booking restaurant and breakfast in advance to make sure you get in!

Really lovely room with great views and good overall service. Somewhat disappointing quality of facilities including the pool and gym. Does not cater to vegans well, having been unknowingly served milk by a waiter after notifying dietary requests.

We stayed in a castle view balcony room. The views were spectacular, particularly at night when the castle was lit up. The room had a lovely deep bath and separate shower. The hotel is close to so many tourist attractions and restaurants, which makes it perfect for exploring and the hop on tourist bus stops directly outside to visit things further afield. A brilliant place to stay. We will definitely be returning.

Ideal position, you can literally walk to reach every attraction but quality of a 3 star hotel. Lack of hygiene,noisy rooms , stairs by the entrance of the hotel so not easy to carry your luggage and nobody helps
