We really enjoyed the Scotsman. We were traveling with our teen-aged son and so booked an Editor's Suite with a rollaway bed. It had plenty of room and was quite luxurious. The room had all kinds of amenities, we especially enjoyed the high-tech light switches. We didn't spend the extra money for a view of the Firth, but I think I would next time I stayed here.
We had two complaints. The room got stuffy at night and there was no AC. Maybe they don't need it often in Edinburgh. We did open the windows, which helped a bit. Also, most of the staff was Eastern European and didn't seem to know much about Edinburgh. Fortunately, we have friends in the city and they took us around, and gave us good hints on restaurants and pubs.
Our room came with a full breakfast. We also ate lunch at the hotel the first day when we arrived, and the food was very good. The swimming pool and health club were very surreal. Unfortunately, we didn't make time for using the pool but it would have been fun.
