Very pleasant and helpful staff. The hotel is set in a traditional terrace of stone mansions, with high ceilings, ornate cornices and a grand stair-well. It's in a quiet area a few minutes walk from Haymarket, and close enough to access the city centre on foot (handy as nearby Haymarket is in the throes of tramway construction and traffic snarl-ups.)
The room was clean, well furnished and warm, with tea & coffee supplies replenished daily. Breakfast was very good. Wi-fi connection was mostly good - though interupted by a server problem at one point.
