Together with my parents I visited this Hotel last August and I must say it's a beautiful hotel with a very helpful staff that becomes friends as soon as you arrive! The breakfast is very good and you can also dine from the hotel restaurant where I recommend a lot! The hotel is located in a quite area of Edinburgh... More

We stayed here a week before Christmas. The hotel was smart, cosy and warm. It is located a 25 minute walk from the centre (just use the road the hotel is on). Ample car parking was available in their car park, although the hotel seemed very quiet, so I can't speak for other times of year. Our room was spacious... More

Recently stayed for 2 nights. The staff were lovely and the hotel itself was nice. Our room & ensuite were clean. Couple of little issues were: a lack of toilet paper & complimentary toiletries - we didn't get any replaced the 2nd day so basically ran out; the hot water took ages to come through - as it is an...

The hotel facade was very impressive, as was the reception and bar areas albeit somewhat dark. The first room that we had was nice and as it was very warm I opened the window and the noise from the busy main road was dreadful. We asked for a room at the back of the hotel and we were given a...

I don't even know where to begin. Regardless of the size of the room one thing you expect from a hotel is cleanliness. This hotel is terribly maintained. Even the towel smelt funny. We were gonna stay two days but ran for our life after the first night. Avoid at any cost!!!!!

A very convenient location for us because the wedding we were attending was in the centre of the city. The staff couldn't have been more helpful, welcoming and friendly.Nothing too much trouble. Relaxed atmosphere. Very good breakfasts, catering for all tastes. Some of the bedrooms were rather small but comfortable and had everything needed. Bathrooms fine, good showers.
