We stayed in the hotel for 1 night. We arrived and found there had been a bit of communication breakdown and we had a twin room. It was no problem and they immediately gave us a kingsize room. Mark, who was on reception was really friendly and knew Edinburgh really well. We asked advice of where to eat and drink and later he produced a map on which he had marked his recommendations. We went out and there were umbrellas for us to use as it was raining.
The room itself was nice. The bathroom looked quite new and the room had all the facilities needed- tea/coffee/biscuits, hair dryer, tv etc.
There was free wi-if available in the lounge and reception (not in bedrooms), just needed a code from reception.
The breakfast was really good. The choice was immense on the cooked breakfast front with every egg option possible-poached, scrambled, fried, and served any which way. full Scottish breakkie was available and it was all made to order. There was homemade fruit compote and homemade muffins, homemade Jams and preserves and cake. There was a bowl of fruit (not fruit salad) oranges, bananas, apples, plums etc. So everything you could want in a breakfast.
We walked everywhere whilst in Edinburgh and from hay market station it took about 7/8 mins and then about 15 mins up to Princess street, so very conveniently locates, and the road was quiet so no traffic noise or pub/club noise to contend with.
I would highly recommend this hotel, the staff are all very friendly and helpful; nothing was too much trouble.
