Very convenient location and friendly receptionist. Room was cold on arrival and no instructions on how to boost heating so we had to phone down and find out. Room quiet.

Excellent hotel and great location

Pros: Great location. Lovely staff and good amenities.
Cons: The bed wasn't the most comfortable but for a weekend away it was fine!
Location: The location is excellent. Walking distance to the castle, Grassmarket and lots of good pubs and restaurants.
We spent a weekend here recently and were really impressed at the location. It is so central. We were celebrating a special occasion and were delighted to receive a complimentary drink and an upgrade to a castle view bedroom, on our arrival. The staff were always friendly and efficient. We didn't eat at the hotel so can't comment on that part. We would definitely recommend this hotel.

Overrated definitely not a 4star

Was disappointed with hotel, room small and felt cramped. Absolutely brilliant location but the hotel and its facilities fell below the 4star it is meant to be.

Perfect location for our short break

My trip to Edinburgh was a birthday present and I was pleasantly surprised how nice the hotel was given that we booked it on a deal. Also, upon arrival we were upgraded to a city plus room at no extra cost which was a lovely bonus. The location is great for seeing all the city's attractions, no more than a fifteen minute walk to the furthest and most were much closer yet it's not right in the hustle and bustle of the main tourist area. Couldn't complain about any aspect of the hotel our our stay there.
