Beautiful hotel and friendly staff. Perfectly located in the old town. Unfortunately, our room was quite noisy from street noise, but this was not the case the first time we stayed here, so just make sure you ask for a quiet room.

Spacious and lovely

Pros: Space and modern facilities
Cons: Lock system, darkness of apartment
Location: Fantastic location, right opposite St Giles Cathedral.
Lovely modern apartment, we booked the 2 bedroom signature suite. Much bigger than I expected and lovely bathrooms, decoration etc. Beds were comfortable too. They kindly left a bottle of wine for us upon arrival. Only issue was the lock system is automated and broke down so we were locked in our apartment for 30 minutes until someone came to fix it. Makes me wonder why they haven't got an override system in place for this - it's dangerous if there was ever a fire and the system went down. There are some stairs to get to the property which could be problematic if walking is difficult for elderly etc. I was very impressed with the apartment and would opt to stay again.

Great apartments in the heart of the old town

Lovely apartments with great modern utilities . This is the 2nd time we've been here as a family of four. This time we chose a smaller apartment with some old features but just the same lovely features as the big one. I really like how you get an access code instead of a key. We'll be back.

Trip worth while

The hotel met our expectations and more they had upgraded our room to a penthouse which was so the best room we have stayed at! The staff where so helpful and asked to look after our luggage Til our train home! The amenities we did not expect where wonderful!

Fantastic stay

Thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. We stayed 3 nights and found the location to be fantastic and the staff very helpful. Only possible way to improve would be to have rug grips under the rugs as it was quite slippy with a small child rushing about. Will definitely return!
