    Outstanding venue, particularly helpful staff. All in all it's fairly clean place, they have quiet beds. Location is easy, approx 10-15 minutes' walk from royal mile. You can't help enjoying brilliant service!

    Internet was terrible; really poor breakfast.

    Fine location, extremely pleasant room, and always polite staff. And it also had superb view. Delicious dishes were served at the gourmet restaurant. Liked Edinburgh, the hotel was incredibly helpful. Lovely garden and lovely pool area. Carbonated coffee, tea and wines in the sky bar, easy parking place.

    Warm staff, brilliant location, everything was quite new. Palatial room, castle views. Superb breakfast options, the food was so good. You could walk to the markets and a shopping area. The service was marvellous, I had 2 special nights here. Absolutely fabulous place to stay while in Edinburgh.

    Obliging staff, top class breakfast, free wi-fi. The bonus was classic room decor and huge bar. Unbelievable location, just a walk down to a 200-foot spire. Pool was heated and beds were perfect.

    Very good

    All in all! The super comfortable bed! The wonderful cushions, I would have taken it all home! The unbeatable situation, we hired two tours with "Viajando por Escocía" (I also recommend them! I give them a 10) are about 100 meters from the hotel, so perfect everything. All the staff of the hotel very nice and helpful, I want to highlight Pablo at the reception, we had a small problem with a plug and he went out of his way to solve it and this was full of work, he also advised us on the most interesting places to visit etc, Francisco at breakfast, also helpful, very nice and friendly! also two girls from the bar, another Spanish girl and another one with long non-Spanish hair ( sorry I can't remember their names) also charming. I highlight some names but in general I approve of all of them. The first day because of the time we arrived we ate at the Hotel, very good! But I would like to recommend The Mitre pub, right in front of the hotel, they eat great, the soups of the day are very good, and also, very good price, from Friday to Sunday night they had live music.
