        Location on High Street was the main thing having stayed there before.

        Noise! Having specifically asked for a quiet room we were on the third floor facing the street with a pub below playing live music til well after 1230 midnight. Awful! But, to be fair, the staff allowed us a free night to compensate for this, which I felt was reasonable.

      • 9.6
        Perfect

        Modern and comfortable hotel with comfortable rooms. Very helpful and friendly staff. Very central location on the historic Royal Mile, close to the restaurants, sightseeing and shopping areas.

        Little choice on tv channels, no international news channel (I.E. bbc worldwide) .

        The staff were helpful and welcoming, the location was fantastic for sightseeing and the rooms were really nice.

        Perfect

        Good helpful staff. Efficient hotel.

        2 things: We arrived after 9pm and needed a light supper. The service was quite slow even though it was not busy and the food was rather disappointing - compared with the general quality of everything else in the hotel. We had similar slow service the next day when ordering a mid-morning non-alcoholic drink. Other staff in the hotel were friendly, helpful and efficient so this was just a problem with the bar staff. We were disturbed early in the morning (probably about 6.00 a.m.) by the municipal lorry collecting the recycled bottles from the narrow lane that runs adjacent to the bedroom wing. We had to close the windows and sound proof screens which solved the problem but it was annoying!

        very central room was loveley it was my birthday treat we had a fab time thank you our massages were very relaxing after our day shopping.

        it was very nice we were made to feel at home staff were nice & helpful our room was cosy thank you

        Nice

        Location great! Can't beat it for being close to attractions.

        For the money paid - I felt the room was a bit of a let down.Good size room, but burn marks on the desk, and stain on carpet.

        In the spa a jacuzzi would have been nice.

      • 10.0
        Perfect

        We flew into Edinburgh fairly early so thought we'd have to kill time before checking in to the hotel & leaving bags with them etc, but we were given a room as soon as we arrived, which was massively helpful. The room was to a very high standard, decor and cleanliness, and quiet considering the window overlooked the main highstreet. The staff were exceptionally helpful and polite, and would thouroughly recommend this hotel to others on a city break looking for a hotel in the perfect location for the tourist attractions. Would happily stay here again!

        I can't fault this hotel. We didn't sample the food or the leisure facilities sadly, so cannot comment.
