We stayed for one night on New Year's Eve for the Hogmanay celebrations. We were first shown to our room which was on the ground floor with the bedroom windows facing the street right beside the reception. As it was new year we thought there would be a lot of street noise so we requested to move. They offered us an alternative room around the back away from the Main Street which was actually much bigger and to a slightly higher spec. We were delighted that they were able to accommodate our wishes. It was indeed very quiet and we slept well. One couple was in the bedroom and one on the sofa bed in the living room which was plenty big enough and comfortable.
Being nye we paid a very high rate, £250 but this was standard rates for the city and the quality of the accommodation was excellent. We liked the kitchen facility and being able to cater for ourselves.
We walked into the city down to princes street quite easily, perhaps a 15 minute walk.
The only thing I didn't like was that the doors really bang if you don't keep a hold of them and close them softly. This could be a problem if some people or children are trying to sleep and others are awake. A soft close function would, for me, bring the standard of the accommodation up from very good to excellent.
