Great Accommodation, Staff and Location

Hotel is in a quiet location a short block off South Bridge and is convenient to National Museum and University. Rooms have all been renovated and updated in recent years and are furnished in a modern style. Staff are extremely helpful and friendly. Well-stocked wine bar also offers light menu all day through late evening. Breakfast and all day dining is available in separate restaurant, but food is less than good value or anything to rave about. It is only shortcoming to otherwise great hotel.

Scotland the brave

We had a bad experience at first because our car was towed. However, the staff was exceptionally helpful. The rooms are small but clean. The bed is comfortable & the bathroom fantastic. Will definitely come back!

Beware the hidden charges

This hotel was ok. Overpriced I'd say. The rooms were comfortable enough and the location is good but the staff are all young and don't care. One girl was nice and helpful but the guys working there look like they'd rather be at the dentists. The worse thing about it was they tried to charge me £30 for two day's parking in the hotel car park, which if you can get in you'll be lucky. I wouldn't have minded but nobody told me I'd have to pay to park there so I refused.

Bad Mold experience

room - the bathroom had mold in the shower and when brought to the attention of the staff they acknowledged the problem and seemed unable to address it - I cleaned it off with hot water as best I could - but it was never cleaned off the shower walls by the staff common areas - the carpets were dirty and the hallways had a strange odor they were also under going renovations and the dust was terrible Food quality was mediocre They had 3 fire alarms alarms go off - they stated it was due to a room getting excessively hot - but didn't seem to know why One elevator became inoperable for a day The water was turned off for construction during the day I would never stay there again

Hogmanay 2012

We stayed here for 2 nights over the Hogmanay period, the hotel was perfect 10 mins walk from the train station, less than 10 mins to the Royal mile. The staff were very friendly and helpful, the breakfast was excellent value at £8 pp if you booked it the night before, it was very clean and tidy, and it was a quiet location just off the main road. We will be going back to this hotel in the summer.

Comfortable, idealy located hotel

We really enjoyed staying in this hotel which we found attractive with good size well furnished room. Very comfortable beds and bathroom a good size without the awful noise of an extractor fan which we often experience in other hotels. The staff were very helpful and met our request for a change of double room to twin without hesitation. Breakfasts were excellent with great variety and well presented. Location was perfect for walking to most of the places of interest and good bus service for further afield visits. Situated in a fairly quiet street, just off Nicholson street, which is very busy, made for peaceful sleep. We found the Castle interesting and loved the views from there. The Royal yacht Britannia was a treat and the City Museum in Chamber Street wonderful. Would certainly stay at this hotel again when we return to Edinburgh to explore further.

The Albanach pub/restaurant in the high street on the Royal Mile is very good having a friendly atmosphere and good food. They specialise in malt whiskies claiming to have over 220! The food in the Hotel is very good but a bit expensive for every evening.

A few days in Edinburgh

The hotel was fine - rooms were nice, comfortable and clean, though the lobby was cold and institutional. Main problem was that the cleaning service neglected to resupply soaps and shampoo as well as to change towels. Expect more from a four star hotel.

Great for Edinbrugh Sites

Nice hotel that is reasonably priced. It is fairly close to all the major sites allowing you to walk to nearly everything. Rooms are well kept with modern amenities.
