This hotel is in an imposing terrace location and within easy walking of Edinburgh city centre. We were upgraded to a twin deluxe room and I was delighted when told this. The room was spacious and clean, however, one set of net curtains had big black marks on it and needed a good wash. The lounging chair and matching stool had black marks on them. In a deluxe room I expected deluxe standards but there were no complimentary biscuits or water provided. There was a large bottle of water on the table which had to be purchased at an astronomical price.
The bathroom was the final straw. There was only a net curtain on the window. We were on the second floor and no-one could see in from the street but we overlooked a very small park with an identical terrace of houses of the other side of the park; approximately 150 yards away. I spoke to housekeeping who assured me that no-one in the park could see in when the light was on as they had checked it out and that many other guests had asked the same questions as me! I stood in the bathroom and clearly saw into the second floor lighted windows of the houses across the park. We were in a deluxe room with no privacy bathroom curtains. Housekeeping stated if I was concerned they would put a sheet across the window which I declined just because of the sheer idiocy of the suggestion. I spent our stay using the bathroom in the dark.
The breakfasts were excellent with as much to eat as you wanted and all the staff were very pleasant.
