I'm not sure what we can say about 94DR that hasn't already been said by other happy travellers.
The basics that you always want to know are: spotlessly clean rooms and shared areas; very comfortable beds and fluffy quilts, excellent location. The special points include: excellent contemporary, modern decor that still feels like home; underfloor heating in the bathroom, the honesty bar (well stocked with excellent liquor, coffee, and soft drinks), iPad/iPod set up in the lounge area for booking dinner or a cab, or playing music; spectacular breakfast room.
But what makes this place extra special are the hosts, Paul and John. Paul is a host with the most, giving you a big welcome and making you feel right at home. If you're a bit dubious about everyone loving the breakfast (surely it can't be as good as they say..), don't be. Paul creates a different 5 star menu every morning and it is ALL scrumptious. Especially the home made granola and his gran's porridge! And if you are really lucky you will have the experience of both Paul and John serving you breakfast and you can enjoy a really entertaining morning!
Both hosts are also very helpful and willing to recommend places to eat and shop, or interesting things to see. We talked to Paul about some fine dining options and next thing you know he's on the phone to a friend and getting us a much sort after booking for Castle Terrace, one of the Michelin star restaurants in Edinburgh. This really is an awesome place to stay if you are looking for modern, contemporary decor coupled with an outgoing and delightful pair of hosts. And let's not forget the adorable Molli who was a welcome addition to pat and cuddle as you are finishing that 4th cup of delicious coffee after breakfast.
A big thank you (and extra hugs) from us to Paul and John who made our stay here one of the most memorable of our big UK visit.
Stay here, you won't regret it. Happy travels!
