Stayed at the hotel on monday 13 august 2012. Fortunately my wife and I had a new room which was very nice and modern. The bed was very comfortable and everything seemed to be new. The hotel is located in the Grassmarket area which is very handy for getting about Edinburgh. Unfortuantely there were several downsides to our stay. We had room 101 which is above Biddy Milligans pub. There was music on in the bar until 3am in the morning which could be clearly be heard in the room. In addition just afetr 6.45am there appeared to be an empty bottle collection which was very noisy.Also there was a considerable amount of noise from people leaving the pub in the early hours. In addition the cleaner started vacumming the hall carpet at 8.45am so we had very little sleep during the night.Breakfast had to be taken in Biddy MIlligans pub which ajoins the hotel. This is a dark dingy place which to be truthfull does not look very clean. In fact the gents toilet was down right disgusting.There were four members of staff on duty in the morning and only two other couples awaiting breakfast. Despite this the sevrvice was very poor. In fact we had to wait over 35 minutes before our cornflakes arrived. The cooked breakfast eventually arrived and was average. So in my mind the hotel needs some improvemnts to go alaong with the new decor
