This hotel was so cute and within a 10 minute walk to the main street and buses or half hour walk to the Royal Mile and Edinburgh castle.
We came to Scotland with our 17 year old daughter and were very fortunate to have a room with 2 double beds and our own washroom.
Breakfast being served on second floor in the morning was delicious and the service was very nice.
Ladies at front desk were so helpful, Even when we parked our vehicle in the wrong location. (note that there is a fee for parking your vehicle as no parking was at front of hotel)
Our room was very clean and a decent size as really all we needed it for was a place to hang our hat for the night.
On our way back through Edinburgh we stayed here again and the second room we were given was just as nice and maintained as the first.
This time the front desk lady even walked us to where we were supposed to park.. Such a sweet and nice gesture.
As we were leaving VERY early in the morning to catch our flights they even took the time to make our breakfast to go.
An apple, a juice box, a cookie and a yogurt.. So thoughtful and much appreciated.
Wanting to be within walking distance to the castle and all that the Royal Mile had to offer, i was happy with the length of the walk.. It afforded us a bit of time to enjoy the city and we also stumbled upon some very nice pubs and a grocery store and a health food store.
