This hotel has an excellent location, right in the heart of Edinburgh, less than a 10 minute walk from the main Waverley Station. Yes it does have a lot of stairs up to the reception, but the house is a listed building, and where the author of the Wind in the Willows was born, so therefore a listed building, and you cannot put an elevator in a listed building!
It was expensive - roughly £85 a night for the two of us, but still cheaper than the other hotels / guest houses in the vicinity, location was key to us liking this hotel!
Rooms were clean and quite warm (fan was provided and windows open), had a TV comfy bed, clean sheets, nice room and lovely bathroom with good big enclosed shower unit. I would say that there was some noise during the night time - sounded like either a heating / hot water unit or a fan unit outside, not sure!
Good breakfast in the morning with good choice, tasted good, served by friendly waitresses.
Able to leave bags at 8am when we arrived on the overnight train, even though couldn't check in till 12-ish - also left bags after checking out (between 7.30 and 11am check out times), so we could see the city before getting the late train sleeper back to London.
