We stayed here in December and as we booked fairly early we go a fantastic room only rate. After reading some reviews we were fairly apprehensive but thought the place was great! We were in a room on the third floor at the back of the hotel with some great views. The only downside was there was no lift (which we had seen mentioned on other reviews) but we always use the stairs anyway so it didn't bother us.
The room was spacious and finished to a high standard and the bed was comfortable which is always a bonus.
Because we drove we chose a place with car parking. It isn't obvious where the car park is so we had to pull up on the pavement outside and run in to ask someone. The car park is located on the side road opposite the hotel and can only be accessed by a member of staff so a lad got in the car with us and showed us the way and also offered to help us back to the hotel with our bags. The location was great. As we had stayed in the old town before we decided to stay in the new town this time and this place was right where we wanted to be, only a short walk to the shops on Princes St. and very close to pubs/restaurants/cafes and not far from the Edinburgh Christmas markets!
We didn't eat at the hotel so can only judge it on room only but our experience was a good one. Would stay again and would recommend it to anyone (as long as you don't mind walking up stairs).
